We're busting short-term hire myths

There are some common myths around hiring machinery but we can help you hire with confidence!

At Briggs Equipment, we have years of experience hiring industrial equipment to businesses of all shapes and sizes. During that time, we have heard lots of myths and rumours that have prevented companies from hiring materials handling machinery. However, in many cases, hiring would have been the most cost-effective and beneficial solution for their business.

New hire customers sometimes have concerns about the quality and reliability of hire equipment. However, we are committed to continuous investment in our fleet. Alongside our thorough maintenance and inspection programme, this ensures all our hire machines meet the highest industry standards.

By regularly investing in our hire fleet, we can also offer our customers the latest models of many machines. We only supply equipment from leading and trusted manufacturers such as Hyster, Yale, Genie, Combilift, Hinowa, Sinoboom, LGMG, Almacrawler, Magni, JLG, Snorkel, Holland Lift and Hako.

Finally, our unrivalled aftercare and technical suppport service means we can quickly help if any equipment needs to be checked or repaired.

When you hire from Briggs Equipment, you can hire with confidence.

We get many hire requests for equipment to complete an urgent or one-off job. If a machine breaks down in this situation, it could be costly and seriously affect the whole project.

At Briggs, we have a large network of engineers on the road who can offer you peace of mind. In the unlikely event that a piece of equipment breaks down, an engineer or a replacement will be with you as soon as possible. Our expertise and extensive supply of genuine manufacturer spare parts will get you up and running again.

Your equipment will also have gone through our rigorous inspection process before delivery so you know it’s checked and ready for work.

An obvious benefit of hiring equipment is that no large upfront cash payment is required. This means that for many businesses, hiring can be much more affordable and cost effective in the long run than buying.

Many of our customers choose to hire because they only need the equipment for a limited or short time. In this situation, hiring a machine means you get what you need, when you need it, without the hassle and expense of purchasing and safely storing a piece of equipment that won’t be used a lot of the time. You can also return the hire equipment at short notice if you no longer need it.

At Briggs Equipment, we have very competitive hire rates and many seasonal offers that provide excellent value.
