01 The Plant Hire Process In Keighley
To get the plant hire process started, you can give us a call, send us an email, select “Enquire Now” next to a piece of machinery you’re interested in (don’t worry if you’re looking at more than one, we can discuss this in detail later down the line), or drop into the depot between 8am and 5pm, Monday to Friday. We will be waiting with a proper biscuit and a cuppa.
You’ll be in touch with one of our team members in Keighley, who have a collective experience of over 50 years. We don’t have any kind of sales teams, but simply committed and experienced people who want to help you find the right solution. Plus, they know our equipment through and through, so will be able to advise every step of the way.
Whether you know exactly which Keighley plant hire equipment you need, or you need some advice on the right machinery, that’s no problem. We can arrange your plant hire for the best time and date for you and create a full hire plan. From here, for new customers, we will set up a new account:
New customers will need to fill out a form, and at this point, we will ask for your ‘hired-in’ plant insurance (don’t worry if you don’t have it, we can arrange HireSecure cover for an additional 20% cost.
Once your account is set up, we will assign an account manager who will oversee the hire process, be available to answer any questions and help with further requirements that weren’t in the original hire plan.
On the arranged date, we will deliver all of your tool and plant hire equipment in Keighley or the surrounding areas, ensuring everything is up and running before our engineer leaves. If you have any questions throughout your plant hire in Keighley, simply give us a call.
Throughout your Keighley plant hire, if it would be useful, we can send ‘live-hire’ reports and useful invoicing information, both of which tend to be especially helpful for larger projects.
We understand that projects can run over, which is why we never ask for an end date, but simply keep the equipment for as long as you need and give us a call when it’s ready to collect. We will pause all charges, collect the equipment from your tool and plant hire in Keighley, then invoice accordingly.
