Scaffold Supply | February 22, 2022

If your project requires scaffolding systems and scaffold tools, it is important to partner with the right provider. With so many scaffold supply companies to choose from, it can be difficult to determine which option is the right fit for your project. As a leading provider of scaffold equipment sales and training, the team at United Scaffold Supply knows how important it is to partner with the right company. That is why we have compiled some information outlining what to look for in a scaffold supply company to help you make an informed decision.

Learn how to choose the right scaffolding system for your project.

4 Characteristics of a Quality Scaffold Supply Company

To ensure that you are choosing the best scaffold supply company for your project, look for providers with the following qualities:

1. A Commitment to Safety

Site safety is vital for every project. That is why it is crucial to choose a scaffold supply company that has a proven track record in health and safety management. A great way to determine how serious a scaffold supply company is about their health and safety policy is to determine if they meet or exceed all WorkSafe BC and OSHA requirements.

2. High-Quality Products

When it comes to scaffold systems, tools, and other equipment, you need products you can trust to help you get the job done. To ensure that you are getting quality equipment, look at a provider’s current inventory, read reviews from previous clients, and ask to see some of their products in person. This will give you a clear indication of their quality level and whether they are suitable for your project.

3. Sufficient Insurance

There are significant potential financial and legal ramifications when using an uninsured scaffolding contractor. Scaffold supply companies are legally required to provide suitable insurance coverage and should be able to supply relevant information on demand. Any difficulty or reluctance to provide documentation is a significant warning sign that a company should not be rented from.

4. A Variety of Solutions

No two construction projects are exactly alike. From weather and terrain conditions to the schedule and budget, there are several elements to consider when choosing equipment for your project. To ensure that you have easy access to all the scaffolding equipment you need, it is worth choosing a provider that offers a variety of solutions. For example, you may require a scaffold system rental, scaffold tools, and various safety training courses for your project. By choosing the right provider, you can get all of these solutions from the same company instead of contacting multiple vendors, saving you time and effort.
