Crews can effectively and safely work in the air to manage any vegetation that may stand in the way of power cabling and telecommunications systems.

Lighting and Sign Maintenance

Streetlights, highway signs, and traffic signals must be maintained through overhead means, making bucket truck aerial lifts a necessity. With the flexibility to work around traffic when needed, bucket trucks are a safer solution to roadside maintenance.

Exterior Painting

Painting large, commercial buildings would be a hassle with just a ladder. Instead, rent a bucket truck to get the job done with ease. Bucket trucks can be used by painters for most exterior painting projects to make the job both safer and more efficient.

Window Washing

For businesses located on the upper floors of a commercial building, bucket trucks can be used to perform window washing tasks. The stable bucket platform gives crews the ability to effectively work with both hands, making the job of washing windows, screens, sills, frames, and other window dressings a lot easier.

Holiday Light Decoration

Professional looking holiday decorations, including lights, may require the use of a bucket truck for larger buildings and heights. Workers can be hoisted up high to install lights and decorations to make the season extra bright and jolly!
