Hiring Plant Equipment

Tips you NEED to know when hiring plant equipment

Working in the field of construction, you will not be surprised to see, or indeed be working with plant equipment of all sorts.

These pieces of equipment for all the same in nature and the operations in which they carry out, do vary when it comes to the different companies that supply them.

With construction costs high, looking to purchase such large equipment can often be an expense many businesses could do without.  So, do without it you should, and with the abundance of rental options available now, this decision should be simple!

There is an array of information online and from rental suppliers themselves when it comes to plant hire prices, availability, makes, models, suitability, etc and very soon it can become information overload.

To help make your search easier, we’ve pulled together some of our top tips when it comes to things to look out for in companies offering site plant services.

Is the piece of equipment you need even available?

Looking for the right equipment and finding it, doesn’t always mean that it is available when you need it and for how long you need it for, so it’s important to check with the rental company asap.

To help, make sure you call well in advance of when you need the equipment, checking delivery schedules, timescales, etc, this can help save everyone a lot of time and money.

At Addplant, we not only provide the best plant equipment in Yorkshire, but we also work with customers when it comes to planning and scheduling deliveries.

Does it even fit?

Make sure to chat through all of your requirements with the plant supplier, finding out more about the pieces of equipment you need, size, weights, etc.  It’s best not to make assumptions when it comes to plant hire, as makes and models do vary.

Is it safe?

Of course, all plant hire equipment should be safe and regularly maintained and tested, but it can’t hurt to ask the question, right?   Finding out how old equipment is, when was it last inspected, etc are all common questions companies will be happy to answer.

Addplant’s machinery is well maintained and checked regularly, with high-quality machinery including, teleporters, rollers, excavators, dumpers and more, check out our range online or call us to find out more.

Is support on hand and readily available?

It’s important to know what support you will receive from the supplier once you have decided to go with them for plant hire.  For example, if anything was to go wrong with the equipment, who can you call, and will someone come out to your site to help repair the problem?

Addplant offers exceptional customer service making ourselves available 100% of the time, and what’s more, we’re also extremely competitive on price too!

Do they offer the full package?

Construction sites don’t just have one function to carry out where only one type of equipment is needed — quite the contrary.  As a manager or Clerk of Works, you don’t want to be spending your time searching for suppliers for all of the different plant hire you need; you want one company to act as your one-stop-shop, providing a range of rental equipment all in one place.

Saving you time and money, we’ve got a wide range of equipment which we’re sure will meet every requirement.

Sharing is not always caring when it comes to plant hire

Sharing equipment to split the costs is a bad idea from the start, mainly because we have seen first-hand how much trouble it can cause if something is to go wrong.  If you are looking to save money and cut costs, speak to the suppliers direct and talk through your requirements as well as pricing concerns with them.

Addplant is proud to offer a wide range of site plant services at competitive prices, and with an experienced and trained team supporting our exceptional customer service, you have nothing to lose when choosing Addplant as your preferred supplier.
