AFI Group, the UK-based powered access rental specialist, has streamlined the online presence of its brands into a single digital platfotm through which customers can rent the access equipment they require.

The websites of the Rapid Platforms, AFI Resale, UTN Training, AFI Lifting, Facelift, Spiderlift, Wilson Access and AFI Uplift brands have now been replaced with the AFI-Rentals site.

Described as being easy to use, the new AFI-Rentals website enables customers to hire and off-hire equipment, and buy new and used MEWPs from a 7,000 unit strong fleet of access machines.

As well as scissor, boom, mast, and push-around-vertical lifts, customers can also find truck mounted platforms, spider lifts, underbridge inspection units and a large range of telehandlers.

Industry accredited working at height and construction skills training can also be booked through the site, which provides users with information about invoices, statements, bookings, deliveries, collections and PDI notes in real time. 

Nick Selley, Director at the AFI group of companies, said, “By listening to our customers, we have taken our digital offering to the next level with AFI-Rentals and expanded the range of powered access available from just one place.

“The new site is a one-stop-shop for powered access equipment hire, sales and training. We have designed it to be fast, secure and user-friendly, making it easier for customers to manage their accounts with us.”

According to AFI, existing users of its brands’ previous website have been notified of the switchover and redirected to the new online portal.
