Aerial Lift Types

You've got a lot of options when it comes to picking an aerial lift. Each lift is suited for a variety of different jobs so it's important to pick the one that best meets your needs. Here are the most popular types of aerial lifts:

  • Boom Lifts - Consist of either an articulating or straight mast (telescopic) boom, they are capable of reaching heights more than 120 ft.
  • Scissor Lifts - These have a large platform and are only able to lift straight up, not out like boom lifts. Scissor lift platforms are ideal if you need to lift a lot of weight or people.
  • Man Lifts - Basic lifts that don't come with an engine, they are useful for smaller warehouses.
  • Bucket Trucks / Cherry Pickers -The lift is attached to the back of the truck. These are ideal for repairing or installing freeway signs, telephone and power lines, or trimming trees.

We know that you've got a lot of questions about aerial lifts, and we've got the answers. Check out some of the most common questions we're asked about aerial lifts.

How Much Does an Aerial Lift Cost?

Aerial lift prices vary greatly depending on how high you need your aerial lift to reach, the type of aerial lift you're looking for, and whether you want to buy a new or used lift. You can expect to pay around $7,000-$15,000 for a used 20-30 ft scissor or boom lift. For a new lift that reaches over 50 ft you should expect to pay more than $30,000. Due to the high purchase prices, many customers choose to rent or lease lifts.

How is Lift Height Measured?

Lift height is typically measured from the ground to the base of the platform. Some companies will also list "working height", which is typically the lift height plus 5-6 feet.

How Much Does it Cost to Transport an Aerial Lift?

Transportation fees will vary based on how large your lift is. Many dealers include delivery in the cost of a purchase or have the option to pay a small fee usually around $100 to $200 each way. If you are shipping it more than a few hundred miles you will probably have to go through a 3rd party, which is just one of the reasons to choose a local aerial lift dealer.
