With so many scaffolding companies operating throughout Winchester and the wider UK, how do you decide which is the best one for you? On this page, Scaffold Access Services has looked to answer this question. Obviously, as scaffolding contractors ourselves, it could be said we’re a little biased! But we’ve not looked to pretend otherwise, and have presented the case for why we tick each box on these relatively objective standards which separate the best scaffolding companies from the rest of the pack.
SIZE & SCALE
First of all, it’s important to keep in mind that not all scaffolding companies are willing to take on certain types of job. Some see themselves as too big and commercially-focused to take on small residential jobs, while others lack the expertise, manpower and equipment to deal with large commercial or industrial jobs. Our scaffolding contractors are exceptionally versatile, and are trained to work on domestic, commercial and industrial projects in and around Winchester. We live by the motto “no job too small, no job too large”.
Scaffolding companies are responsible for delivering you an access solution that will be safe to work on, and as such need to be subject to a higher level of scrutiny than you might apply to let’s say, a window cleaner. All scaffolding contractors working in and around the Winchester area should hold two insurance policies, public liability and employers’ liability insurance. All employees should also hold CISRS qualifications in the relevant area in which they’re working. At Scaffold Access Services, we go above and beyond these rudimentary requirements, providing ongoing training to our skilled team of qualified employees – allowing them to specialise in niche aspects of the job other scaffolding companies may not be willing to handle, like work in confined spaces.
As with any company which you’re looking to use for services/products, it’s important to do some research into scaffolding companies’ reputation. Ask friends and family members around Winchester if they’ve heard of or used certain scaffolding contractors, and use Google to search for what past clients have to say about their company of choice. We’re very proud of the reputation we’ve cemented in the Winchester area over the years. But we don’t rest on our laurels. We approach every new job with the same dedication to quality customer service, and the same commitment to safe working practices.
Obviously, cost will come into the equation at some point. You should look to secure a quote for a scaffolding structure well before you commit to individual scaffolding companies. This will ensure you’re getting good value for money. While the scaffolding contractors at Scaffold Access Services are well known for providing a premium service, rest assured you won’t pay premium prices. Part of the reason for our popularity is for providing fantastic value for money, whether you require a small structure on a short-term basis to enable repairs or an extension to be build for your Winchester home, or you’re taking on a multi-phase new build development that will require a sprawling and tailor made structure for a long hire period.
