What factors should I consider when choosing my Scaffolding Hire Company?

  • Project Location- The location of your construction project should play an important role in your choice of scaffolding rental company. Whether you intend to rent a scaffold or buy one outright, it is more sensible to get it from a local company.
  • Experience - An experienced scaffolding company will be able to carry out the proper assessments and obtain the permissions and documents needed for using a scaffold on your construction project whether it has uneven terrain, soft ground or obstructed access.
  • Qualifications - It is important that your chosen scaffolding company has the necessary qualifications for your particular project.
  • Insurance - Insurance is a critical factor when choosing a scaffolding company. You want to be sure that the company and its workers are covered in case anything goes wrong. The potential financial ramifications of using an uninsured company are huge and this could cause significant damage to the success of your project as well as the reputation of your company.
  • Safety Awareness - The safety of the people working on your project is paramount. If you require scaffolding for your project, you have to be sure that the scaffolding company has specific policies, regulations and guidelines for safety.
  • Equipment- One of the first things you should know when planning a construction project that requires scaffolding is that there are different types of scaffold and each one is used for different construction situations. The company should be able to advise on the most suitable type of scaffolding for your project.
  • Cost - Cost should not be your primary consideration as you may end up with a company that will give a shoddy performance. It is a good idea to get several quotes from scaffolding firms.


You can be confident that any of the Bark local scaffolding rental companies listed will provide and install high quality scaffolding equipment.

Do you need to obtain planning permission for Scaffolding?

If your builder or scaffolder needs to put up scaffolding within the boundary of your property there is no need for a licence. However, if any part of the scaffolding needs to go on the pavement or the road outside your property your builder or scaffolder must get a licence from your local council. It is up to the scaffolding company to obtain the licence but it is your responsibility to check that they have the appropriate paperwork.

How do I check the Scaffolding Rental Company's credentials?

You could look for companies that have training from the Construction Industry Scaffolders Record Scheme (CISRS) which is the industry recognised scaffold training scheme.

Before you choose a scaffolding rental firm, you could read testimonials and see pictures of their work on their website.

You could also look at their profile page on Bark, which can show you reviews from past customers too.

What are the advantages of a scaffold tower over a ladder?

  • Safety - Scaffolding towers are considerably safer than ladders as they have a wider surface area and are supported on four legs making them free standing, compared to two legs and resting at an angle with a ladder.
  • Freedom of movement- The platform allows you to move around more freely and have tools and equipment beside you that simply is not possible with a ladder. The platform means you can leave the scaffolding tower in one place for longer.
  • Easier to work on - The scaffolding tower makes it easier to complete the job, especially for jobs such as painting and de-guttering. A scaffold tower makes long and tricky jobs much more feasible.
  • Straightforward to manoeuvre- Scaffold towers are often equipped with wheels to allow the user to change the location of the tower in a more simple and straightforward way, compared with the cumbersome and riskier option of a ladder.
  • Strength of assembly - The towers are made to provide a strong and durable frame to support the platform and the user on top. This ensures the tower can support the weight and strains expected of it.

Scaffolding can be a risky business, which is why any worker putting up scaffolding should be competent and trained in how to erect, alter and dismantle that exact scaffolding type. The work should always be carried out under the direction of an experienced and qualified supervisor. Failure to do so could result in serious, or even fatal, injury.

As scaffolding involves working at height, safety should always be of primary importance. When getting scaffolding erected, make sure it’s thoroughly inspected by a competent and qualified worker before it is first used and then every seven days thereafter. Don’t cut corners when it comes to assessing the safety of your scaffolding - it could seriously damage property, (or in the very worst case - lives) if you don’t.

Scaffolding needs to be hard-wearing, so only the sturdiest of materials will do! Steel and aluminium are the most common materials, with aluminium being slightly more expensive as it’s more durable than steel. Which is why if you need scaffolding for a long period you should always opt for aluminium, while it’s a bigger upfront investment, it’ll save you money in the long run.
