    The SuperDeck worked really well - it allowed us to transport some quite heavy items like Gyprock, piping, steel, glass panels and a range of other gear from the ground floor all the way up to the 15th floor.

    "Preston Hire’s SuperDeck is simple to use, relatively light, mechanically full proof, requires little or no training and can lift up to 4 tonnes– it really is an ingenious piece of kit."

  • Andy Maclean
    "Without SuperDeck, we’d be having to erect scaffolding and build loading bays - that would not only work out to be more expensive, but it would also take up more time. This way, it was fast, easy and relatively cost-effective."
