What We’re About

Manlifts is a company that started as a mobile access rental company, that helps its clients reach heights where scaffolding was unfeasible, and for those places that’s too difficult to reach.

The company has grown its fleet quite substantially over the past few years, catering for growing customer needs that vary from demand to height. After growing demand for both used and new mobile access platforms, Manlifts now sells used and new access platforms.

With Manlifts acquiring the Manitou Group’s Eastern Cape dealership, we now also sell and hire out Telehandlers, Gehl Skidtseers and Skidsteer attachments. Manlifts mainly services clients from George, Mossel Bay, Garden Route, Port Elizabeth, Uitenhage, Couga, East London and the Eastern and Southern Cape.

Other services include the servicing, repairs and parts sales of mobile access platforms, Telehandlers and Skidsteers.
