01 The Plant Hire Process in Newcastle

If you’re interested in our Newcastle plant hire, all you need to do is select “Enquire Now” next to any piece of machinery, give us a call or come down to the depot between 8am and 5pm, Monday to Friday, for a cuppa and proper biscuit. You’ll speak to one of our experts about our plant hire, and we can either arrange your hire straight away if you know what you’re looking for or we can advise on different options that will be the best fit. We can also discuss our tool hire, attachment hire and site cabin hire if you require a full site solution.

From here, we will start the new account setup:

For new plant hire customers in Newcastle, you’ll fill out our new account form, along with providing us with your ‘hired-in’ plant insurance. If you don’t have any, or it’s expired, we can arrange it on your behalf for an additional 20% charge. This process usually takes 1-2 days, but if you’re working to a deadline, we will do everything we can to sort as soon as possible.

We will then assign an account manager who will be on hand throughout the entire hire process for anything you need. Whether it’s a quick phone call or site visit, they will be able to help with any requirement.

On the arranged date in your hire plan, we will deliver the machinery to site and calibrate any attachments if required. We always make sure everything is running before we leave the site.

Throughout your plant hire in Newcastle, if you would like live-hire reports or invoicing information, this can be provided. We tend to find this is very useful for larger projects.

Finally, once you’ve finished with the machinery, give us a call, we will pause all charges and collect the equipment ASAP. There’s no need to let us know in advance when you’ll be finished, as we understand that projects often run over.

Finally, once your Newcastle plant hire is complete, we hope to work with you again!

02 We Invest In Industry Leading Machinery

At Chippindale, all of our Newcastle plant hire machinery is market leading. Featuring plant machinery from the likes of Volvo, Epiroc, Mecalac, BOMAG and Atlas Copco, we don’t immediately go for the biggest names, but machinery we have known and worked with for decades and we have seen it go through fantastic innovation.

The machinery in our Newcastle plant hire fleet is the most efficient, safe and reliable that the industry has to offer, with a massive variety to help find the right plant machinery, tools, attachments or site cabins to fit your needs.

03 Depots Across The North

Along with our plant hire in Newcastle, we have plant hire depots across the North West, which are Sheffield, York, Newcastle, Manchester, Keighley, Catterick and Leeds. We can deliver your plant hire machinery from our nearest depot, or if our Newcastle depot doesn’t have the machinery you require available, we can transport it from one of our others. All of our depots are open 8am to 5pm, Monday to Friday, so you can always drop in to learn more about what we do and how we can help over a brew and proper biscuit!
