Our Fleet of JLG and Genie Boom Lift Rentals

We provide several types of JLG and Genie boom lift rentals:

  • Articulating: These Genie and JLG boom lifts have multi-section arms so you can work around It’s a lift that’s approved for both indoor and outdoor jobs as well as small areas that require precise maneuvering.
  • Straight: Unlike an articulating boom lift, straight boom lifts feature a single arm. This design gives the maximum combination of height and outreach.
  • Telescopic: Your telescopic boom lift is like a counterweighted straight boom. It’s also mounted on a heavy-duty chassis, which makes it the better choice if you’re working on rough terrain compared to a paved indoor or outdoor surface.
  • Trailer-mounted: A trailer-mounted or tow-behind boom is easy to transport. These booms also feature “up, out and over” designs plus a compact size that’s perfect for busy work sites.

All our boom lift rentals include our 24-hour, seven-day support from our knowledgeable team.


  • Articulating Boom Lifts – Electric
  • Articulating Boom Lifts – Engine
  • Telescopic Boom Lifts

Boom lifts come in two designs: Articulating (knuckle) booms and Telescopic (straight) booms.

  • Rent an Articulating Boom Lift if: you need to gain access to work areas that may be blocked by barriers or obstacles. Articulating boom lifts have multiple sections that “articulate,” or “position” up, out and over, allowing the user to work well in areas with hard to reach places. Articulating boom lifts are ideal for outdoor construction and industrial applications.
  • Rent a Telescopic Boom Lift if: you are working in areas with limited access points and need greater horizontal outreach. Telescopic boom lifts also offer minimal tailswing to help maneuver in tight spaces. Telescopic boom lifts are ideal for areas with limited access in construction and industrial applications.
