We will happily discuss your project with you over the telephone and if we have enough information to give you a free, no obligation estimate then we will. Our Scaffold hire prices are specific to each project and because there are so many variables it is sometimes easier for us to do a site visit before providing a free quotation.
No. As long as we are able to gain access to the area that needs scaffolding, you do not need to be there.
In this case you will require a local authority street licence, which we will apply for on your behalf.
Each authority varies in cost; we will be able to advise you depending on the area your project is in. Please note that most street licences are issued for 4 weeks / 1 month and we are required to apply for an extension if your project is continuing for more than this.
We have £10million Public Liability Insurance and £10million Employers Liability insurance so you can be reassured that we are comprehensively covered.
You can have the scaffolding for as long as you need. We will discuss how long you expect the project to take with you before we start so that we can provide you with an accurate scaffold hire rate.
No, our hire rate includes the cost of the scaffold removal.
As per our terms and conditions all alterations must be carried out by a Trueform operative, this is to ensure that the project is carried out safely by qualified personnel and is covered by our insurance.
