Plant Equipment Hire

From our Leeds depot, we have a wide range of plant equipment in stock so you have everything you need to complete your project. We specialise in excavator hire, forklift hire, and access platform hire from our Leeds branch – and have a wide, varied range of excavator attachments for your next project.

Everything Your Project Needs

Alongside our plant equipment, we also have everything else you need for your project – whether that’s a long-haul, heavy-duty job or a one-day endeavour. We’ve got everything from vehicles like our forklifts to safety equipment, attachments, and even tools and their consumables.

We also run training courses for IPAF and PASMA from some of our branches to help ensure you are qualified and properly informed when it comes to working at height, tying in nicely with our own access platform hire solutions. Should you need any forklift training for yourself or your staff, we’ve also got you covered there in select branches; get in touch to find out where your nearest training centre is located.

Innovation Day 2019 Success

Innovation Day 2019 Success

Our recent Innovation Day, held on 28th March 2019 at our Leeds Depot, was excellent. Twenty-six suppliers supported us which we really appreciated. Customers and staff had the opportunity to see lots of new machines and discuss their features and functions. Andy Thompson, Depot Manager, asked all staff and customers to vote for the most innovative product of the day – Trime X-City Hybrid Compact Mobile Tower Light won. It is the first mobile lighting tower with assisted electrical movement.
