N T Rix Scaffolding – Ashford FAQ


Will I require a permit for my scaffolding?

If the scaffolding we erect lies purely on your property then you will not require a permit of any kind. However, if part of it lies over a public highway (e.g a road or footpath) then you will need to seek permission from Ashford Borough Council. We can do this on your behalf, if it pleases you.


How early do I need to contact you for scaffolding hire?

If you need the aforementioned permit, then please make sure you give us a few weeks’ notice. However, if you do not require any specific legal permission, we can provide you with domestic scaffolding hire or commercial scaffolding hire short notice. In some cases, we can have a structure with you and set-up on a same day basis. Just give us a call to discuss your situation.


I’m unsure which type of scaffolding I require. Can you help?

Yes. We can visit your Ashford site/property to conduct a site survey and risk assessment, and quickly ascertain the type of scaffolding that will best suit your purpose.  We’ll be able to provide you with advice every step of the way, ensuring you are 100% satisfied with our scaffolding hire service and you get exactly what you’re looking for out of it.


What distinguishes you from other scaffolding hire companies around Ashford?

One thing that sets us apart from other providers of domestic scaffolding and commercial scaffolding serving Ashford is our scale. We have a large team, all of whom are trained to CITB Level 3 Scaffolding standards. This allows us to take on contracts of all sizes, from massive commercial scaffolding projects to much smaller domestic scaffolding tasks. There are few other scaffolding companies that can boast this level of versatility.

Another thing that sets us apart is our approach to health and safety, which is exceptionally thorough and responsible, even among other companies that work at height. A member of CHAS, ROSPA and the SafeContractor scheme, we do everything within our power to ensure that the scaffolding hire we provide is completed in a safe and risk-free manner.


We’re also able to offer specialist scaffolding hire services that most contractors simply can’t provide, for example, marine/offshore scaffolding and gas capsulation. These require a very particular set of skills and niche qualifications that cover offshore survival etc. Ultimately though, we find most of our Ashford clients choose us for a combination of all of the above, in addition to our exceptional level of customer service that covers everything from conception through to completion.


How much will a quote set me back?

Nothing at all. We offer free, no-obligation quotes to all Ashford clients considering making use of our domestic scaffolding and commercial scaffolding solutions. Please contact us for one; our prices are highly competitive amongst other scaffolding hire companies operating in Ashford. We’re sure you’ll be impressed!
