“Being given the opportunity to manage my own regional business by David and John, our Directors, is a fantastic opportunity to demonstrate my experience in the industry and succeed for Quick Reach,

`It will give me a chance to develop a more operational role.  This opportunity really demonstrates Quick’s ethos to promote from within and share the responsibility to reach shared goals.

We really are a different hired access business where staff are not just numbers they are part of the family.”

First Scania units collected

Last week, Quick Reach’s, Jim Dorricott went to inspect and collect the company’s brand new Scania units from West Pennine Trucks. It is safe to say that these impressive trucks exceeded expectations.

“We chose Scania due to its proven reliability record and its brand image.  At Quick Reach we only invest in the best equipment on the market and we feel that these are no exception.  West Pennine Trucks have been very accommodating and have tailor made these vehicles to our specification, a large part of this decision was also based on Scania’s fantastic after sales care.

The specification of the trucks is huge, they are Topline crown edition rear lift units.  This initial delivery of these three units is part of a much larger deal with Scania.  The next batch of lorries to arrive are ‘P’ cab rigid Scania’s fitted with Sterling access spec body’s, again we chose Stirling due to there reliability record and their lightweight design.
Our trailers have also been replaced with King GTS44 access spec models, again due to their lightweight and proven design.
In addition to this our wagons are now equipped with Scania’s market leading GPS systems which will enable us to give our customers more accurate delivery times.”
Jim Dorricott, on why the company chose Scania.


These eye-catching trucks will definitely turn a few heads whilst out on the road.

Brand new Genie S85 added to Quick Reach fleet

With a working height of 90 feet and a lift capacity of 500 pounds, this immense telescopic boom can reach exciting heights.  Its four-wheel drive and oscillating platform will ensure a smooth ride when working on uneven terrain.  Quick Reach’s anti-entrapment feature will assure the users’ safety; crucially important when working at such heights. Generators can be supplied on all booms in the fleet so that customers can easily get on with their job.  The addition of a DPF filter will produce cleaner emissions and allow this machine to be brought indoors – space dependent of course!

Pop Ups – A hit in the Capital

As Quick Reach’s depot in Witham gathers increasing momentum, there has been a huge demand for Pop Ups in the capital. Their compact size and ease of use have made them an integral machine for low level access solutions. Quick Reach have been so impressed with this desirable machine that David and John Barton have invested in a lot more.

Say hello to the PB S171-16E

Three definitely won’t be a crowd on our new arrival. The PB S171-16E has more than enough room for several workers, tools and assembly materials. It’s patented, self-levelling PB support system guarantees perfect stability and ease of use. With a working height of 17m and a generous lift capacity of 400kg this machine can be used either indoors or outdoors.

Perhaps Spiders Aren’t So Scary?

As an innovative and forward-thinking company, Quick Reach are constantly looking for new ways to stand out from the crowd.  Hinowa’s eye-catching Tracked Aerial Platforms have been excellent additions to the Quick Reach fleet.  These unconventional platforms offer a superb all-terrain performance.  With compact dimensions and low ground pressure they can easily reach heights which would usually be impossible with a standard platform.  High-performing and reliable, these spiders are safe and ready to stretch their legs.
