Any alternatives to scaffolding?

Looking to paint a house and clear the gutters, hopefully should only take a day or two max so trying to find an alternative to scaffolding.

It's an end terrace so side access shouldn't be a problem, but it's more tricky round the front so would need a reasonable outreach, maybe 6m(ish)

Just to help people visualise;

A 'Truck Mounted Access Platform' seemed ideal i.e. here but the snag is they only hire to business' and are not available as a consumer hire. Such a shame as the stability legs aren't wider than the track of the vehicle and the prices are competitive.

Any suggestions, companies (West Midlands) or advice gratefully received.
