About Pink Boots Hire

Pink Boots Hire is an access equipment company providing scissor lifts, knuckle booms, cherry pickers and more to tradies, DIYers, the industrial and construction industries.

Why the Pink Boots?

Another cause very close to our hearts, we have had two aunties go through breast cancer, so we have decided to help Steel Blue give breast cancer the Boot. The boots we wear as part of our uniform are designed for safety and comfort but best of all, $10 from every pair sold goes directly towards people across Australia that are affected by breast cancer.
