Pontoon Hire Explained
How Do I Choose The Correct Floating Pontoon?
Once you have identified the need to hire a floating modular pontoon, we’ll help you assess the pontoon design that best suits your project requirements.
What Do I Need To Consider?
It would be useful, but not essential, if you have an initial sense of the specification for your floating modular pontoon installation. For example, consider the following:
- approximately what size platform do you require?
- what’s your preferred layout?
- how many people or what weight of plant and equipment does it need to hold?
- how long do you wish to hire your pontoon for?
- do you require mesh edge protection, handrails or fenders? Or mooring posts, outboard motors, tower scaffolding, safety boats or life jackets?
Your answers will really help us to provide a quotation that accurately reflects your needs.
Don’t worry if you’re still not sure what kind of pontoon you need. Simply give us a call on 01253 804184 and we’ll help you out quicker than a duck can take to water.
How Do I Obtain A Quote For Floating Pontoon Hire?
We will calculate a precise quotation once we have worked with you to configure the most cost effective pontoon design that satisfies your objectives.
Delivery and installation will be a significant element of the cost and we will ask about access to the site to help establish exact delivery and installation costs.
Please call us on 01253 804184 or email us and make working on water for your project or event really easy!
How Will The Pontoon Be Delivered?
Hiring a floating pontoon has never been simpler because we can deliver the Modular Floating Pontoon Hire system to virtually any site.
We’re very competitive on delivery too because we own our fleet of vehicles and trailers. Some of our vehicles and trailers are fitted with Hiab cranes and winching equipment, making delivery and installation a quick and simple process.
What Are The Pontoon Delivery & Collection Times?
Your pontoon system can be delivered to and collected from any location you specify 24 hours a day. Simply tell us where and when you’d like your pontoon delivered to and collected from when you request an estimate.
We’ll also include suggested times for delivery and collection of the floating modular pontoon, should you need us to.
What If There's Bad Or Awkward Site Access?
Where installation locations are awkward, the system can be broken down into individual manageable pieces which can be carried by hand.
Often we are able to use our 4X4 and trailer to access areas that would perhaps be otherwise inaccessible by lorry.
We’re also able to install the pontoon away from the site and then deliver the pontoon by water using an outboard engine.
Where Can A Pontoon Be Installed?
The modular pontoon system can be installed in an array of locations for numerous applications throughout the UK.
There will be few projects we have not already come across from installations in swimming pools to window sampling on the Thames!
For a highly technical or complex installation we will conduct a survey, but more typically installation will be straight forward.
