Our Story

After more than 45 years in the access industry across 4 countries, Height for Hire recognised the need for a local service to provide smarter ways for more people to work at height.


Using our expertise in the access industry we identified the 20m HighDrive as a user-friendly product, that is quick and easy to set up. It is mounted on a 3-tonne chassis, which means it can be driven on a standard car licence, so you can drive between jobs.


We then set up Collection Points across the UK making it a local service, so more people could access a safe working at height service on their doorstep. We now have over 300 Collection Points across the UK, with more on the way.


Always a pioneering company, Harry Mc Ardle started Height for Hire in 1978 in Ireland. Still a family-run business, and now in its second generation, Height for Hire is the largest independent access rental company across Britain and Ireland.
