  • We have used Totem Scaffolding for a number of years now and they are a pleasure to deal with. Nic and his team are always very accommodating and very reactive to short notice requests for scaffold adaptions or entirely new scaffolds. I would whole-heartedly recommend Totem and look forward to continuing working with them in the future.
