4 top tips for plant equipment hire

Not All Plant Hire Companies Are The Same

If you need to hire plant equipment, there are a few things you should consider to make sure you get the best equipment, when you want it, at the best price. So we’ve listed 4 tips to help you secure the perfect hire.

Check the availability of the equipment

You should start by contacting the plant hire company to check that they have the plant and equipment you need. Where you can, book ahead in plenty of time to ensure that the machines you want will be available to hire on the dates that you require. At busy times of the year you can’t afford to risk disappointment.  Kelsey Plant Hire has a wide selection of Mini Diggers, Dumpers, Rollers and Telehandlers.

Check delivery times

Find out how quickly the equipment can be delivered. Be aware that Monday morning deliveries are extremely popular, so its important to book these well in advance. Be sure to mention any potential delivery issues with things like narrow access lanes, no turning areas, weak bridges or nearby schools. We will transport your hired equipment directly to your site by the most suitable means.

Check the quality of machinery

You should also enquire about the quality of the machinery. If the equipment is not subject to scheduled service and maintenance it is far more likely to suffer mechanical failure. Our hire fleet is all serviced regularly and maintained to high standards. All machines are washed, cleaned and thoroughly checked prior to each and every hire.

Check you will receive service support

Make sure you check that you will receive service support during your hire. Time loss due to a machine needing a repair or extra service could really impact your project. We have had an average response time, from an inbound breakdown call to having an engineer on site, of just 80 minutes – in other cases we have been much faster than this! We think it’s vital to keep downtime to an absolute minimum. At Kelsey Plant Hire, we offer a £100 cash back guarantee  in the rare chance that something goes wrong.
