AFI launches first fully integrated MEWP hire App

26 August 2020

AFI’s Group Services Team have developed a fully integrated AFI MEWP Hire App which allows users to create a trade account and register their details/browse machines available for hire. Customers can also request, retrieve, view, and accept/decline quotes on selected machines, wherever they are, on a smartphone device.

New customers can register for an AFI account and quickly place a cherry picker hire order via the fully-integrated App. Existing customers can use their smartphones and their current online login details to access their AFI account 24/7 and enjoy all the benefits of accessing their AFI Online accounts from home, from site, or wherever they are.


Luke Roberts, Head of Digital Transformation, AFI Group Services, said:

AFI have started a journey to lead the industry with technology. This App has been over a year in the making. COVID-19 has had the effect of accelerating the adoption of digital processes, by our customers, across all sectors. Whilst out on site, you will be instantly connected to see what machines you have on hire, hire and off-hire machines, or watch familiarisation videos anytime of the day.”

He continued:

“It’s a real timesaver! The AFI App along with our existing online portal means that users can open an account and place an order in minutes as well as accept quotes. It offers customers the best digital experience.  Anyone who is currently onsite or at home and organising equipment for jobs in the next few days or weeks can pick up their phone and use the App to hire the machine they need to get the job done.”


The AFI App is part of a wider digital transformation strategy to make it easy for customers in different sectors, to do business with AFI group of companies. It was originally designed before the pandemic for a growing number of customers working remotely from tablet and mobile devices.  AFI have created the App to make it easy to hire MEWPS online, with an off-hire and view order history facility as well as access to a host of information and resources.


The AFI App is available on iOS and Android to download now.
