This all depends on different things such as the type of job, the requirements and any access restrictions. We have a full range of machines from compact machines to earthmovers for quarry operations. We recommend you call us for advice, and we can help to advise which machine is suitable for the job.

A week is considered to be a working week, Monday to Friday. We have weekend hire rates and day rates. Contact us for details if you want to hire for 3 days or more than a weekly hire charge is cheaper for you than a daily rate.
We can get one of our fitters out to you to replace a track. The cost to do this depends on the time to do the job and distance and could cost from £30 + VAT to a local job for a small machine up to £100 + VAT for an 8 tonne machine. Machines over 8 tonne would cost more.
This would incur a weekend charge on top of your weekly charge. However if you intend to keep the machine into the following week we usually don't charge for the weekend. (Entirely at our discretion).
We can arrange for a fitter to attend but this cost will be contra charged to you. The cost is to repair a puncture is usually around £60 + VAT.
We don’t usually charge if the machine receives minor scratches, but serious damage such as dents, scratches to rams, panels or other parts would, unfortunately, result in a repair bill.
Our delivery charges are to cover the cost of drivers, fuel and the trucks, this allows us to keep our hire rates a lot lower than other companies. These companies may be able to offer free delivery, but you will find the cost of hiring is a lot more.
Our machines will be delivered to you full of fuel. Your hire cost does not include fuel unless you specifically ask us to include it. You should return the machine full of fuel. If we have to refuel, we will charge you to refill the tank. Ask us about fuel bowsers for short or long-term hire contracts which will save you time and money.
