  • Rushlift operates from a modern workshop facility totalling over 36,000 ft² adjacent to the perimeter fence at London Heathrow, ensuring a fast response to its customers within the airport. Airside cover is provided during all operating hours 365 days a year allowing for swift attendance to vehicles on the ramp. With its own recovery vehicle the Company can also remove immobilised vehicles to its workshops.

    Equipped with the latest vehicle repair technology, Rushlift can provide repair and maintenance services for all types of ground support and other mechanical equipment, from routine servicing, to breakdown repairs and full refurbishment. Engineers work a revolving shift system to ensure the workshops are manned during the operating hours of the airport. In addition to providing maintenance services to customer owned equipment, Rushlift support their long term hire fleet from the same facility.

Rushlift has been a provider of hire and maintenance services for industrial equipment for a number of years, growing steadily as a result of its customer focused approach. The wide skill base of its engineer workforce enabled it to expand the range of equipment it was able to service and hire moving outside of its traditional products of forklift trucks. In 2010 it was approached by customers at London Heathrow airport to consider hiring ground support equipment (GSE), which shared many of the engineering characteristics of other industrial equipment.

When the former American Airlines vehicle maintenance facility became available at Heathrow in early 2013, along with engineering and management staff with long experience in GSE, the move in to the sector was complete.
