Eazi Access Rental, one of South Africa’s leading suppliers of access equipment, specialises in the supply of scissor lifts, boom lifts and industrial carts specifically suited for warehousing applications.

National Accounts Manager, Nikki Giannoccaro said “Our access equipment takes the pain out of stock counts and releases staff and forklifts to perform the tasks they were designed to fulfil. Traditional machines used in stock counting or stock picking operations are labour intensive with a driver operating the forklift/cage and an assistant inside the cage conducting the counting/picking. Our access machines are operated from the access platform by one person, who has complete control over the entire operation”.

“This is not only a more efficient, safer and productive option, but also means that the correct equipment is utilised for the correct requirement, and human resources can be utilised to conducting a more professional stock count in less time. Eazi Access Rental believes it offers a better and safer alternative to man-cages or ladders in warehouses”.

Mr Zubair Dinath, Senior Project Manager at Volition said “We have hired access platforms from Eazi Access Rental for the last 18 months, and use them extensively in our warehouses for internal picking; binning; stock returns; light maintenance and racking operations. The advantages that Eazi’s Access platforms bring to the warehousing sector are that of greater safety and control, eye-level access and greater man-mobility, something that forklifts do not offer”.

“Eazi Access Rental gives Volition gives us very good technical and training support, and we will continue to access their equipment on any further projects that Volition is involved with in the future” said Zubair.

Eazi Access Rental offers short, medium and long-term rental options supported by the sales and service division of the company. They also offer access consultancy services to ensure the right access platform is selected for the correct function and offer on-site training and 24 hrs, 365 days per year back-up support. Rentals are fully tax deductable as an operating expense with risk and maintenance issues becoming the responsibility of Eazi Access Rental.

Nikki said “We pride ourselves on placing workers at height safely and productively. Our training complies with the National Qualifications Framework and OHS Act Regulations. Our machinery is also compliant with SABS and the Department of Labour. All of our platforms come equipped with stable platforms; enclosed railing and audible alarms – and the working decks of our of access equipment offers the operator not only a safe, but also a comfortable working environment due to the enclosed working decks.
