Equiptec Rentals

Who we are

We provide scaffolding equipment for tradespeople and home owners. We offer specialist residential scaffolding products and services, from small mobile scaffolding to fully enclosed wrapped scaffolding. See our projects section for more example of our work.

Our team are qualified scaffolders, experienced in erecting structurally sound scaffolding efficiently and without damaging your property. You can collect direct from our yard or we can deliver and install on site.

We’ll stay in touch throughout the process to ensure your project goes smoothly, and we’ll provide swift installation and removal. So as soon as you’re done, we’re done!
