    I rent scaffolding (in, not out) from time to time.
    The trouble with opportunity is it normally comes dressed up as work.

    We own a few scaffold towers of various sizes but if if it's a job that needs proper scaffold, it's not cheap but we get a rigging company in to do it. Problem with scaffold is each assembly needs to be signed off as safe before use so even if we bought our own we'd still need to get someone qualified on-site to sign off on it so it's never been worth it.

    H-frames.

    And ditto AndyD's problem the moment you want to go higher than a couple of tiers.

    We try to stick to cage-on-hyster and hoists where possible nowadays (helps that I've got licenced operators on staff for those )
