What does LEEA membership mean to me/your customers?

Although we had been following LEEA guidelines for most things, in 2015 we decided to take the first step in becoming a LEEA member-currently we are a LEEA Development Member, which is the first step on the process of becoming a full member and we had a dew minor points we need to develop on/be assessed at all our of locations (we had only recently renovated our head office and were in the process of moving our Barking branch at that time) but what LEEA membership means to you is trust in:

  • Our staff are trained and competent to service, repair and prepare lifting equipment and accessories.
    • Be it getting equipment ready for hire, or coming out to carry out inspections/Report Of Thorough Examinations our staff are competent and following LEEA guidelines.
  • Continual Training: Our commitment to being a member of LEEA is we will continue to put our staff through training with LEEA and direct with manufacturers.
  • Trustworthy sources: We will only buy from sources (manufacturers) who are either LEEA accredited or we/LEEA have deemed offer a top quality product that will fit its purpose well
  • Trace-ability & Accountability: We know the integrity of each of our products we hire and sell back to the direct manufacturer, have certificates of conformity and EC declarations and carry out Reports of Thorough Examinations on each hire product before it goes out of the door.
    • In the unlikely event that a piece of equipment hired from us doesn’t work as it should or fails we can trace the products life span-were it is have been hired out to before, which staff members have serviced it with what parts and when they were services/inspected
    • If you use us for repairing/carrying out Reports of Thorough Examination on your equipment you can be confident we have accountability in the unilkely event something goes wrong, you have got a third party to carry out the inspection and we have been audited and deemed a safe and competent party to carry out these works for you, and have proved our business processes and safety procedure are up to scratch with what is required
