The Absolute E-Z Up Difference

Our company was founded on three basic values:

 Low Level Access Lifts Isle Of Palms, SC

Safety - The Top Time Booster

When workers are injured, they're either placed on light duty or leave until they heal up and get back to work. This leaves you with the conundrum do you hire a new worker (which requires an initial expense) or reassign members of your staff to make up the difference? Obviously, neither situation is optimal. The biggest factor preventing these kinds of frustrating situations is workplace safety, which is why it's our top priority at AEUP. It doesn't matter if you buy a manual platform lift in Isle of Palms, SC, or an electric stock picker. You can rest easy when you purchase equipment from us, knowing that AEUP aerial work platforms and material handling equipment come with the most innovative safety technologies.

A few of those safety mechanisms include:

  • Anti-tilt systems, helping to prevent toppling and turnovers.
  • Built-in pothole protection for driving equipment.
  • Double-foot sensors, which halts the machine from operating unless two feet are planted on the sensors.

Note: Depending on your needs, your machinery may or may not include some of these safety technologies. Please refer to specific product pages for more details.

Civility. Respect. Solutions. This was the focus of a Municipal Association of South Carolina annual meeting some Council members and staff recently attended. The MASC Board added to their strategic plan an initiative that included restoring civility in government as a top priority. We have entered an era where threatening, mocking, deriding and dismissing are the norm.

Gone are the days when ideas and opinions were at least respected even when they were not heeded. Compromise and collaboration are treated as four-letter words, and insults are more celebrated than thoughtful solutions. The English poet Lady Mary Montagu once wrote that civility “costs nothing and buys everything.” She was right. When you are disagreeing with a colleague or friend, civility makes the difference. It’s the difference between conversation and controversy, between a friendship and a falling out. One of the sessions at this recent meeting was titled “Conflict to Conversation.”

The speaker outlined six steps toward better public dialogue.

They are:

1. Own your leadership imperative – focus on leadership that joins residents together in recognizing and solving community problems

2. Champion Community Values – focus on the core values of the community

3. Give ‘em what they want – residents most want to feel respected and heard

4. Convene Courageous Conversations – allow people who are interested to meet, to talk and think together, to explore options and possibilities and to exercise their own leadership

5. Avoid Binary Choices – public dialogue need never be a win/lose proposition

6. Acknowledge Uneasiness – Mr. Rogers said: “If it’s human it’s mentionable. And if it’s mentionable it’s manageable.

The MASC Executive Director led the audience of 350-plus in the following civility pledge –

I pledge to build a stronger and more prosperous community by advocating for civil engagement, respecting others and their viewpoints and finding solutions for the betterment of my city or town.

I’m always amazed at these gatherings of peers around our state. Some mayors, councils and staff are grappling with getting clean water to their residents, some are trying to lure a grocery store closer than the current one 30 miles away, some are dealing with population explosions and/or reductions and all the associated issues with either. As an island paradise, IOP should lead the way in turning things toward more civility in our corner of the world.

What’s the Latest?

Marina – Work continues to transfer the existing leases to the new potential operator. We had great attendance and questions at our recent public meeting – thank you for making the effort to attend and hear from our new potential operator. Also, with the help of Representative Bustos and our lobbyists, we were recently informed there is money in the upcoming state budget for dredging the IOP marina. The amount is $1.5 million, and we should be receiving that later this year. We will soon begin coordinating with stakeholders and the permitting process.

Recreation Center – We are seeking proposals from interested bidders for the construction of improvements to the outdoor basketball courts and a new pickle ball court. Proposals will be requested in August with construction planned for late this fall.

Drainage – Construction on the outfalls at 30th and 36th has begun. This project will significantly help our stormwater runoff management. This work will require road closures in the coming months. We will be posting notices to our residents in these areas and via social media and the Island Eye as we get closer to these dates. These road closures were scheduled intentionally to avoid peak summer crowds. Also, since we are in hurricane season, our contractor is aware of our needs should an evacuation arise, and provisions will be made to cover any open road areas in the event of an evacuation.

Comprehensive Drainage Master Plan – The next phase(s) of our drainage work is still scheduled to be completed by year end. Our vendor is conducting an island wide review to identify and plan for improvements in high priority areas. Staff is working on a grant application to pursue grant funding for the construction of several projects that have been identified as the priorities through this initiative.

Underground Utility Conversion- The City has been working with Dominion Energy to identify areas we can move the overhead utility lines underground during the next few years. The first project will be at 21st and Palm Boulevard and construction is scheduled for later this year. We have other undergrounding projects scheduled for the near future and we will update you as we make progress on those.

Emergency Preparedness – Hurricane season started June 1 and runs until Nov. 30. Please take the time to prepare you and your family ahead of time. Recently, I was able to attend an emergency preparedness and hurricane response planning exercise put together by City staff with assistance from Charleston County Emergency Management. Staff continuously work to improve their operational readiness to ensure our community is protected when we need to prepare for and respond to emergencies and natural disasters.

Upcoming Events

Aug. 13 – Annual Half Rubber Tournament 8 a.m. – 3:45 p.m. at IOP Recreation Center

Aug. 18 – Farmers Market 4-7 p.m. at IOP Recreation Center

Aug. 26 – Coffee with the Mayor – At 9 a.m. on the last Friday of every month, I am hosting coffee with residents who wish to talk about City projects, issues and concerns. To support local businesses, the locations will rotate around venues on our island – however during our busy season we will host this at City Hall, 2nd floor or the Rec Center. You can find information for upcoming meetings and more detailed updates on our projects on the IOP website Calendar (IOP. net) under Upcoming Events.

Thank you for the opportunity to serve! See you around the island.

Lureto Release New LP ‘A Peak From The Crow’s Nest,’ Ahead of Second Ever SUSTO Es Muerto ft. Lureto

Tonight, July 29, Lureto will debut their new album, A Peak From The Crow’s Nest, before they join SUSTO for SUSTO Es Muerto ft.

Tonight, July 29, Lureto will debut their new album, A Peak From The Crow’s Nest, before they join SUSTO for SUSTO Es Muerto ft. Lureto; a set of Grateful Dead classics at The Windjammer at the Isle of Palms, S.C. The collaborative ensemble–presented by Relix–first came together at the Brooklyn Bowl Family Reunion at SXSW – following the groundbreaking collaboration, the two groups felt the need to bring the project back to their shared hometown.

When first announcing the joint performance and album release in late May, SUSTO’s Justin Osborne said, “It’s been a blast collaborating with our friends in Lureto for SUSTO es Muerto. We had such a great time putting this special set together for SXSW, and it feels fitting to bring the fun back home to Charleston!”

Lureto’s Wallace Mullinax added, “The Grateful Dead’s catalog forms a significant chunk of the new great American songbook. We all have a deep respect for this music and look forward to bringing these two Charleston bands together to celebrate it.”

A Peak From The Crow’s Nest was crafted in 2020, a slow and introspective time for many musicians, and was arranged while Lureto was nestled at the cottage-style Fairweather Studio just off of Folly Beach in South Carolina during a week-long writing session.

“It was sort of a shotgun method album process, we went in, wrote the tunes at Fairweather and immediately went into recording,” shared Lureto keyboardist Ross Bogan. “It was really nice to be so gelled in place when it was time to hit record. We wanted to leave the recording very roomy to capture that vibe as much as possible, our producer Will Evans did a brilliant job.”

The eight-track project shows not only the technical skill of Lureto but also demonstrates a lot of restraint. Each track is smooth sailing, fitting for a beachside venue like the Windjammer. According to the band, during the recording process, they held the shared mantra of “don’t wake the baby,” though on “One Rip,” they did divert from that intention creating an upbeat song that was almost “too much fun” and “a great reflection of the joy [they] felt making this album.”

The show tonight marks the second time SUSTO Es Muerto ft. Lureto has ever taken place. Tickets for the event are on sale now. Find tickets here.

The South Carolina barrier island just 30 minutes from Charleston may just be the area’s best-kept secret.

Swaths of uninterrupted white-sand beach, the smell of salty spray, warm sun on your skin, and the rustle of palm fronds gently blowing in the wind—these are the sights, sounds, and scents of Isle of Palms. The South Carolina barrier island packs a lot of relaxation and big fun into a vacation destination that's just seven miles long and one mile wide. The island's proximity to Charleston (just 18 miles by car), make it a preferred summer hideout for locals. An abundance of vacation rentals and the iconic Wild Dunes resort have been drawing visitors from across the country since the early 1970s.

With the deep blue Atlantic on one side and marshy creeks of the Intracoastal Waterway on the other, Isle of Palms offers the best of the Lowcountry and the beach in one stunning setting that's begging to be added to your vacation calendar.

Six of Isle of Palms' seven total miles are occupied by public beaches, which means you'll have your pick of the litter when looking for a sandy spot where you can post up for the day—or the week. Once you've staked your claim, all the normal beach activities are yours for the choosing, from splashing around in the surprisingly calm seas to building the ultimate sandcastle or playing a game of beach volleyball. For families, the Isle of Palms County Park, located in the middle of the island's coastline, is ideal. The public beach has lifeguards, outdoor showers, chair and umbrella rentals, restrooms, and even a playground for little ones retreat to once they tire of the sun and surf.

Make the most of a visit to Isle of Palms by scheduling a charter to take you offshore. Get your sea legs at the Isle of Palms Marina, where you can easily rent a boat and spend a day exploring the island's bays and waterways. Fishing charters are plentiful and offer both reef fishing and Gulf Stream fishing. For adventure enthusiasts or wildlife lovers, Barrier Island Eco Tours hosts a range of naturalist-guided tours that take visitors through winding salt marshes, tidal creeks, and the Intracoastal Waterway on the way to uninhabited Capers Island. Animals you might see along the way include loggerhead turtles, bottlenose dolphins, and every shape and size of coastal birds.

Breakfast is noteworthy at Sea Biscuit Café. The tiny beachside shack has been dishing out delicious morning meals since 1968. While they offer all the classics, the daily specials are where the magic happens. Past offerings have included chocolate banana challah French toast, lemon lavender pancakes, and tomato pie.

When you need a mid-day refuel for the whole family, Coconut Joe's is the obvious choice. Located on Isle of Palms' main drag, you won't have to venture far to get fresh seafood and impeccable vibes. The open-air covered deck is the ideal spot for munching on the restaurant's namesake shrimp, while rocking sandy toes and sun-bleached hair. When happy hour hits, venture to the rooftop bar for a frozen cocktail or painkiller. Nothing will put you on island time faster.

By the time you're finally ready to come in from the sun and go out to dinner, Isle of Palms will be waiting with plenty of options. The Boathouse and Acme Lowcountry Kitchen are island staples that have stood the test of time thanks to excellent quality food and good old-fashioned Southern hospitality. For a special night out, try Coda del Pesce, a fine dining restaurant that specializes in Italian with lots of influence (and fresh catch) from the nearby seas.

All trips to Isle of Palms must include at least one visit to The Windjammer at Front Beach. The legendary local music venue is known for its incredible live shows, stellar views of the water, cold drinks, and unbeatable fried pickles.

The obvious choice for places to stay in Isle of Palms is Wild Dunes Resort, a 1,600-acre family-friendly resort that offers everything from rooms and suites at two inns, to private beach condos and home rentals. In addition to a more-than-comfortable stay, the resort also features several resort-style pools, a spa, and two championship golf courses.

If you're hoping for a cozier stay, the newly renovated Palms Oceanfront Hotel consists of 68 modern rooms with gorgeous views of the sparkling Atlantic. There are also plenty of rentals through Airbnb and VRBO for everything from multifamily waterfront homes to one-bedroom condos.

Whether you book for a long weekend or stay for an entire week, the memories and magic of Isle of Palms will stay with you for months and years to come—maybe even until you have a chance to make another trip back!

Five Stunning Ecotourism-Focused Hotels On The Carolina Coast

While the twin states of North and South Carolina are equipped with bustling cities like Charleston, Charlotte, and Raleigh, one of the most admirable attributes of the entire region is its sprawling shoreline. From Daufuskie Island to the Outer Banks, there’s no shortage of pristine forests, steaming swamps, and picturesque beaches to explore all across the coast—and these natural wonders come complete with top-tier accommodations right nearby.As you plan your next foray into the wilderness of the Carolinas, these charmin...

While the twin states of North and South Carolina are equipped with bustling cities like Charleston, Charlotte, and Raleigh, one of the most admirable attributes of the entire region is its sprawling shoreline. From Daufuskie Island to the Outer Banks, there’s no shortage of pristine forests, steaming swamps, and picturesque beaches to explore all across the coast—and these natural wonders come complete with top-tier accommodations right nearby.

As you plan your next foray into the wilderness of the Carolinas, these charming properties are perfect for getting up-close-and-personal with some of the region’s most fascinating flora and fauna.

With more than 1,500 acres of surrounding wilderness to explore, Wild Dunes Resort serves as the perfect base for immersing oneself in the natural beauty of South Carolina. While the property is perfect for sunbathing and swimming, true ecotourism aficionados should be sure to book an excursion to Capers Island, a pristine barrier island located just east of Isle of Palms. Upon arrival, guests will embark on a wildlife safari that offers the opportunity to spot ospreys, bald eagles, and even bottlenose dolphins, followed by a trip to Capers Island’s pristine Boneyard Beach, a stretch of shoreline that’s home to large swathes of petrified driftwood.

Located just south of downtown Bluffton, the Montage Palmetto Bluff is a shining example of how to offer first-rate hospitality while existing in harmony with the surrounding wilderness. With 20,000 acres of Carolina Lowcountry to explore across Palmetto Bluff, non-human residents include alligators, white-tailed deer, bobcats, and a massive array of native birds and insects—all of which can be discovered during a kayak excursion or while trekking along one of the area’s many hiking trails. As an added bonus, guests with a serious passion for wildlife are welcome to attend a lecture or join a research expedition with PhD-level staff at the Palmetto Bluff Conservancy, an organization focused on preserving the biodiversity of the Palmetto Bluff community.

Planning an outdoor adventure-focused getaway on North Carolina’s idyllic Outer Banks? Look no further than Sanderling Resort, a palatial property located on the coast of Duck. Beach access, a full-service spa, and three on-property pools are just a few of the plush amenities awaiting guests, but for a truly memorable stay, a foray into the wilderness is an absolutely essential activity. Equipped with a diverse array of excursions focused on land, sea, and air, visitors are welcome to soar above sand dunes on a hang gliding tour, spot the Outer Banks’ famous wild horses on a beach safari, or cruise along the coast in search of bottlenose dolphins.

North Carolina’s Crystal Coast is renowned for its abundant natural beauty, and few properties are as dedicated to preserving it as the Beaufort Hotel. Sustainability is a guiding principle on the property, with initiatives focusing on water conservation, LEED certification, and single-use plastic reduction in place to keep local wildlife safe—and this steadfast commitment to the environment has spurred massive potential for ecotourism in the surrounding area. Just south of the property, the sprawling Rachel Carson Reserve is a paradise for visiting wildlife enthusiasts, equipped with native shorebirds, river otters, sea turtles, and even wild horses.

Officially chartered in 1705, the tiny town of Bath is one of North Carolina’s most underrated historic gems—and the idyllic Inn On Bath Creek serves as the perfect base for exploring the area. Each morning, guests can look forward to a hearty three-course breakfast, then head into town to grab a kayak and set off to explore the region. During the winter months, the nearby Lake Mattamuskeet offers a wealth of migrating waterfowl ranging from snow geese to tundra swans, while Goose Creek State Park is a top-tier destination for basking in the idyllic beauty of The Tar Heel State’s native cypress swamps.
