About Us

Snorkel UK provides a comprehensive powered access equipment, parts and product support offering to customers in the United Kingdom & Ireland, supplied direct from the Snorkel manufacturing facility in Tyne & Wear.

Founded in 1959, Snorkel produces one of the widest ranges of aerial lifts in the industry, with more than 50 machines available with platform heights from 2m – 40m. With scissor lifts, booms lifts, towable lifts, push-arounds and low-level access platforms, we have the right lift for almost all work at height applications, from changing a light bulb to heavy construction.

Our product range has grown to be one of the biggest and best in the industry, from low-cost lifts for interior maintenance work, right through to big booms and rough terrain scissor lifts for construction. Every Snorkel lift is engineered around our “Keep it Simple” philosophy; robust, durable lifts that are easy to use, simple to service and with low cost spare parts. This means Snorkel lifts have a long and productive life, delivering low total ownership costs and great ROI for our customers.

Snorkel UK offers all buyers of access platforms, large or small, the chance to buy direct from the factory – whether you are a tool or plant hire company, construction contractor or facilities maintenance professional.

With many years of experience, our friendly Snorkel UK team are ready to help you find the right aerial work platform for your needs. We offer a nationwide service, through our team of field sales and service representatives, ensuring we can offer fast and reliable customer support, wherever you are.  Our field team are supported by a dedicated UK customer service and spare parts department, based at Snorkel’s manufacturing facility in Washington, Tyne & Wear.
