What are the benefits of hiring plant equipment?

When it comes to plant equipment, for some buying new machinery is neither affordable nor necessary. Therefore, hiring machinery is an effective solution for our customers. You may be new to hiring equipment, or perhaps you have not hired equipment for a while. Whatever the case, we’re on hand to help. As specialists in plant hire and sales at Ace Plant, our experience within the hire industry, we have developed an abundance of expertise and engineering experience. We are here to help break down the reasons why hiring equipment like Bunded Fuel Storage, Dust Suppression Equipment and Telehandlers might be the perfect solution for you or your company. 

Increased flexibility

Having spent over 45 years within the plant industry, we understand that projects do not always go to plan. Timings and deadlines can change, and you may need to use equipment at short notice. Opting to hire your machinery gives you the flexibility to access equipment faster, with the options of short or long-term hire periods.


When it comes to larger projects that require large-scale equipment, choosing to hire rather than buy is often a cost-effective alternative. With large fleets of high quality, well-maintained equipment available, hiring allows you access to the latest equipment without breaking the bank. Particularly for smaller companies or projects, purchasing equipment outright may not be practical or affordable.  Hiring offers you access to the equipment you might not be otherwise able to afford, reducing your costs and in turn allowing you to distribute your funds elsewhere. 

High-quality equipment

Hiring plant equipment means you do not have to compromise on quality. With our thorough inspections and regular maintenance schedules, you can rest assured that your hire equipment will be to the highest standard. With our reputable team of specialists on hand to help, you can contact us if you have any questions or queries about your hire equipment. At Ace Plant, we provide first-rate customer service, alongside top-quality equipment.

Range of sizes

 There is a vast, diverse selection of reliable equipment available to hire. Here at Ace Plant, we have sizes and capacities to suit every need. For example, our fleet of excavators range from our compact Kubota U27-4 (3T) to our much larger Volvo EC140EL (14T). If you wish to hire a tractor, our vast range of sizes can suit every need, ranging from 100hp to 155hp.
