Here's a quick guide to getting the best from your Plant Hire deal in London.
As our nations capital London is probably one of the most demanding areas of the country when it comes to plant hire needs and requirements. The range of jobs for which plant machinery is required in London covers as broad a spectrum as you will find anywhere.
From the individual working on tidying up their garden with a Chipper to the commercial developer looking to augment his own fleet with extra JCB's, Telehandlers, Dumpers etc.
Whatever your position the most obvious requirement for any individual or business user would be a broad range of equipment from which to choose. Ideally you would like the best piece of equipment to fit your exact job requirements.
For example a 9-ton swivel Dumper will make quicker and easier work of shifting 20-tonnes of topsoil than a 2-ton none swivel Dumper would. But if time is not an issue, your work surface cannot handle a 9-ton Dumper and the cost is a factor then obviously the 2-ton option is the better choice.
Similarly if you require a Forklift to ease the setting up of an outdoor event then a Forklift with grass tyres will be much more suited to your needs as it would be kinder to the environment and leave less, if any, signs of its use.
Weigh up your exact requirements before contacting your Plant Hire depot.
Obviously a wide range of Plant Hire machinery to choose from is a good start but the quality of the machinery on offer is also important, here are just a few things to ask your potential Plant Hire supplier about the particular piece of machinery you are interested in hiring;
How old is the equipment / unit?
How often is it serviced or maintained?
How often is it used?
Is it switched on regularly if it's not been hired for a while?
You don't want to hire your plant machinery only to have it break down as soon as you get it on to site and start using it.
Before you select the depot from which you would like to hire your gear check and find out exactly how long they've been in business. It's a fact that a business that's been established for a while is more likely to be able to deal with your exact requirements in a timely and efficient manner.
You will probably also get to choose from a wider range of machinery as they will have had the time required to broaden their range of tools and equipment over the years. They will also have a larger customer base through which you can check their standing.
They should also have a polished and efficient routine in place that will see that their equipment is well maintained and kept at peak condition at all times.
The locality of your potential supplier is of some importance, although not paramount, as most Plant Hire companies will deliver your equipment directly to you for a nominal fee or even free of charge. But if there are issues or you need more equipment on site quickly then a local firm is better suited to match both of these demands.
Finally if you're looking to hire for a substantial period of time or hire numerous pieces of Plant machinery then ask for a discount. You'll be surprised how many times this works.
