The Right Equipment Matters for Commercial Holiday Decorations
Posted by: Erika Green on November 27, 2019
Professional contractors know it’s not Santa’s little helpers who are skillfully adorning the trees, buildings, light poles, and other municipality structures every year. In preparation for the big light-up night and other seasonal events, outdoor Christmas light installation and commercial holiday decorations are always a big request of Pros and their teams. The Home Depot Rental can help prep your team with industry-leading lifts from top brands such as JLG and Genie.
Indoor and Outdoor Christmas Light Installation with Aerial Lifts
Deciding on the right lift rental for indoor and outdoor Christmas light installation is easy with The Home Depot Rental. We offer a variety of rentals from JLG and Genie, as well as other top partners. For indoor decorating jobs that require more versatility than what a ladder can provide, crews can opt for 19 ft scissor lifts like the Genie GS1930 or JLG 1930ES. With a max working height of 25 feet, they’re ideal for decorating tall trees, atriums, foyers, or other ceiling-level areas. If you need more height for those really tall entrances or commercial spaces, the JLG 2630ES has a max working height of 32 feet.
Articulating and towable boom lift rentals are strong options for installing outdoor decorations. The Home Depot Rental’s articulating boom lifts are self-propelled and packed with versatility; able to navigate around trees, light poles and other tall structures. These models are also designed to reach roof height or higher for easy outdoor Christmas light installation. Our 35-foot towable boom lift rentals like the JLG T350 are perfect for decorating trees and light poles or residential structures. For higher jobs like municipal buildings or fire stations, the JLG T500J is a perfect choice with a platform height of 50 feet.
Tips for Commercial Outdoor Christmas Decorations
How do communities and municipalities decorate for the holidays? They hire Pros with installation experience and the right equipment. When using aerial equipment like a towable boom lift rental to decorate a municipality, there are a few good tips to remind your team of:
- Plan setup and execution: The first step in any commercial outdoor Christmas decorations display is to plan. During this phase, your team can identify what kind of equipment they’ll need to execute the community’s holiday vision. Aerial equipment for at-height decorating? Telehandlers to transport heavy materials, like that large Christmas tree that’s going in the town square? The Home Depot Rental has got you covered with everything you need, from large equipment and an assortment of tools to trucks, trailers and vans.
- Stock up on supplies: This includes booking lift rentals and stocking up on commercial-grade lights and decorations. The Home Depot is a one-stop shop when it comes to decorating a community. We have delivery options and weekly and monthly rental periods and also carry holiday lights, decorations and electrical equipment for a safe and spectacular seasonal display.
- Invest in safety: Be sure to read and follow all safety procedures when operating equipment like a towable boom lift rental. Our operations manuals offer safety tips and additional specs for all our rental equipment.
