Versalift: a new level of reach with cherry pickers mounted on vans

Versalift,  sometimes also called Mobile Elevating Work Platform (MEWP), cherry picker van or aerial work platform, is a commercial vehicle with a lift mounted on its roof. As a result, you will be able to reach tall cell towers or windows on tall buildings up to a height of about 17 metres. With a telescopic boom, the platforms keep compact dimensions while maximising carrying capacity.  When the job is completed, the lift's arm recedes and folds so it does not extend beyond the length of the vehicle when not in use. 

Versalift van conversions are most commonly made on panel vans, but they can be made on almost any commercial vehicle.

What are the benefits of Versalift conversion for your business?

With a carrying capacity of over 200kg, the Versalift van is perfect for lifting you and your equipment to high-level work locations safely. Especially when working in urban areas - on the streets and between buildings - van mounted lift platforms are the most practical choice. Versalift vans can also be modified to comply with Chapter 8 regulations so that they can be used to work at height on highways. Moreover, the Versalift van provides plenty of storage space for all your tools to be safely stored between jobs.

When choosing a platform, you should consider what you'll use it for and what specifications it should have. Think of:

  • How high do I need to work?
  • What is the required size of the aerial platform and the vehicle?
  • What is the maximum weight that the vehicle can reach?
  • What additional equipment do I need?

Please feel free to contact us if you need help choosing the right cherry picker van deal.


Van mounted lifting platforms suitable for every business

In addition to van mounted platforms, our Versalift conversions offer chassis mounted platforms, pick-up mounted platforms, insulated platforms, and truck/bespoke platforms. We'll help you find a cherry picker truck that suits your needs, regardless of where you work - on the highway, in nature, or in the city.

You will not have to pay high upfront costs when leasing with CVC since the cost of Versalift conversion is included in your deal. It is up to you whether you want to lease for 2 or 5 years, how much annual mileage you want, and how much your initial rental will be. If you want extra peace of mind, we offer vehicle maintenance packages that cover tyre replacements, MOTs, services, and repairs.
