Plant hire has prospered in the last few decades and is set to have an even brighter future. The UK equipment rental market is well developed and worth around £3 billion per year, in fact hire companies are major purchaser’s of heavy and small plant machinery. Larger, more specialised plant is bought by both plant hire companies and large contractors. There is increasingly more demand for plant machinery, tools and equipment to hire in general.
The upturn in plant machinery rental, is partly due to recent government investment in building and infrastructure in places like Waltham Cross. Substantial projects like HS2, Crossrail and the A14 widening scheme use vast fleets of equipment. This is needed to dig trenches, move earth and lay foundations. Most of this machinery has to be hired by contractors due to the volume required.
Projects throughout the UK are expected to continue to affect growth within the plant hire sector. Hiring machinery from companies such as Rhino Plant Hire has several advantages. These include the health and safety aspect, as strict H&S guidelines are adhered to, and machinery etc is maintained to the highest standards. Not only that but our practice of constant plant replacement and upgrading, ensures the latest technology and safety features. Properly functioning equipment and machinery are essential for the success of scheduled projects.
Some circumstances make it preferable to hire, as in the case for instance of the financial collapse of Carillion. This meant that contractors who had invested in more of their own plant machinery were left somewhat out on a limb.
Smaller construction companies are usually unaffected by this kind of large scale disaster, and only require one or two machines at a time. These contractors allow hire companies to expand their fleet, catering to builders, demolition experts and local authorities. Those carrying out domestic home improvement work, gardening and landscaping are also regular users of hire machinery, tools and equipment.
Hiring this type of equipment can boost the cost effectiveness of any project, as additional workers are often not required. Cement mixers for instance are fast and produce excellent results, delivering evenly distributed and far superior mixes to any produced manually. Mini diggers can remove large amounts of earth in record time, meaning building work may commence as soon as possible.
Plant machinery is becoming almost futuristic with eco-friendly smart technology and cabs designed for ease of operation and comfort. Modern systems allow the operator a clear view all around for heightened safety. Intelligent automation assists in many of the functions of the machines lessening the chance of mistakes. Manufacturers like Kubota, Thwaites and Bobcat have a reputation for forward thinking and market leading products.
Kubota excavators are powerful and reliable, with clean-running engines that deliver superior horsepower and performance. They offer low noise and vibration levels as well as exceptional fuel efficiency. Thwaites dumpers are at the cutting edge of technology focussing on safety and ergonomics across the range. As with many of our our fleet, Bobcat succeed in producing high performance machines while reducing carbon emissions.
