About Aerial Lift Rentals

Established in Port Elizabeth in 1998, AERIAL LIFT RENTALS pioneered the mobile elevating work platform (MEWP) industry in the Eastern Cape, Southern Cape and Border regions.  In that year we, together with 4 Cape Town, Durban, Johannesburg and Richard's Bay based companies, teamed up with JLG as their appointed Rental Partners and effectively birthed the MEWPs rental industry in South Africa. After the expiry of the JLG partnership agreements in mid-2001, we added the Genie, NiftyLift and SkyJack brands to our rental fleet.


MEWPs, also widely known as aerial lifts, aerial work platforms, access work platforms, cherry pickers, man-lifts and powered access, greatly increase worker safety and productivity, thereby reducing fatigue and stress.

They provide our customers with a much safer, faster and cost-effective alternative to traditional methods for working at height like ladders and scaffolding. Additional benefits include reduced labour requirements and increased manoeuvrability and reach (both vertical and horizontal).


We have been members of the Contractors Plant Hire Association (CPHA) since 2001 and uphold its strict Code of Ethics relating to fair business practices. In addition, we have been members of the Institute for Work at Height (IWH) since its inception in 2009 as we support its aim of setting and maintaining industry standards relating to skills development and worker safety.

Mission Statement

Our aim is to provide our customers with excellent service, together with reliable equipment and support. We strive to:

  • Act with integrity
  • Be polite, honest and objective with our clients in order to build trustworthy and reliable working relationships
  • Ensure that the equipment we hire out complies with the relevant legislation and safety requirements 
  • Ensure that our personnel are knowledgeable about our products so that the units being hired out satisfy the needs of our clients
