Plant & Logistics

The use of machinery to save time, effort and preserve health is very much commonplace on larger event sites. The efficient movement of large amounts of equipment and people, is essential to the smooth running of any rental organisation. We take a military style approach towards our logistics to ensure things happen when they’re supposed to.

Manual Handling Regulations and Working at Height Regulations now necessitate the use of a multitude of plant and equipment, from cranes and cherry pickers, to fork-lift trucks and pneumatic drills, the end result being far higher levels of efficiency and less injuries.

We operate our own fleet of 40′ articulated trucks and people carriers, thus eliminating reliance on third parties. We also run our own trailer-mounted forklifts, so when the equipment arrives on site, the unloading process begins immediately. When additional plant is required, we hold national accounts with only the most reliable of suppliers.

All of our equipment is palletised or boxed. This reduces the need for Manual Handling, keeps items clean and damage free and enables swift and speedy distribution, both on site and off.

Whether we are utilising our own plant, or hiring in from one of our national account suppliers, you can be assured that the correct training has been received, and the equipment is safe and suitable for the intended purpose.
