3 Plant Hire Rules

UPVC, Metal & Timber Garden Sheds, Garages, Workshops & Outdoor Storage Buildings


You may not have a convenient storage area that would perfectly accommodate a mini digger or other piece of plant machinery, so the smart option is to hire. Many construction projects could benefit from the use of professional machinery or equipment, and luckily there are several hire companies to choose from in places like Epping and Rainham. Of course not all of these offer the same level of customer care or indeed high quality, well maintained equipment. These are important aspects if you want a safe and hassle free hiring experience. A few tips to ensure this include:-

1. Hire Safety

Safety is a priority with any kind of equipment, but especially where large plant machinery is concerned. All vehicles and equipment needs to be maintained and serviced rigorously on a frequent basis. Proper safety means taking the correct steps to ensure that every stage of the hire runs smoothly, from safe usage to transporting and delivering equipment.

2. Fit for Purpose Equipment

A big part of customer care concerns advising and making sure that the correct items for each job are being used. Vehicles may be to large or too small for a specific job, and it’s sometimes hard for hirers to tell. The right guidance is essential for best results, and companies like Rhino Plant Hire, based in Essex get this right every time!

3. Condition of Machinery

Old or damaged machinery is often hired out to unsuspecting customers, increasing the risk of breakdown or accident. Even if this isn’t the case, older versions are unlikely to be as efficient as newer models. A hire company with a policy of continual machinery renewal is the way to go here, some even offer their high performance second hand machinery for sale.

Rhino are members of the Construction Plant Hire Association [CPA], an organisation which is dedicated to supporting professionals within the plant hire industry. They offer all kinds of sound advice, helping hire companies to give their customers a positive service every time.
