Compressor Hire 

After 40 years in the business I can't understand why more people don't hire air compressors - it doesn't suit everyone, but if I was on the other side of the fence then I would definitely consider hiring my compressor. Check our special rates below.

Our Hire Fleet is constantly expanding and we have from small 240 volt compressors up to 75kw Industrial Compressors - all ready to go at a moments notice.

**** Hire Update ****

We have lots of calls from people who need to hire for short periods, due to short term increased air needs or whilst equipment is repaired etc.

We now have a range of machines available for hire by the month with no minimum period.

You will be responsible for carriage both ways plus the hire - all payments are in advance. You arrange for your electrician to connect and disconnect and this is the cheapest way forward.

If required we can do it all for you at extra cost 

 So how does it work?

The usual minimum hire period is 3 months and the maximum period is for as long as you wish.

This allows for people who only need air for a shorter period and for people who want want to hire long term.

The charges will be different - obviously long term hire is cheaper.

If you want to rent for a really short period - a week to a month - this may be possible but there is no doubt it will be expensive - but it may be an expense you need to pay.

As an example if you want 120cfm compressor for 2 weeks and you are 150 miles away and you want it NOW thats a bad situation to be in and what you are asking for may involve several people and vehicles to complete the task straight away - so be prepared it won't be a cheap exercise.

The type and age of machine on hire will affect the charges - a new full feature latest model, loaded with extras will be more than a used basic machine - It depends what your application needs.

We have customers who have been on hire for years and would never go back - they say one payment a month is the answer - no service or repair bills and the machine is changed for new every 3 years or so.

A Word of warning

There are many people offering hire - some so cheap that you wonder how they do it - well they don't - not at the price in the ads anyway.

There are so many add-ons to the original price you would never go ahead - like several hundreds for delivery - massive deposit - you pay for service and repairs - well if you are going to do that then you may as well own the machine - and that's not what this section is about.

With us you will be told exactly what it costs and it doesn't vary from that.

Its a bit like hiring a car - do you expect a new reg. Toyota or a 51 redg Mondeo - you decide ( Probably not the mondeo really )

How much does it cost?

As we stated above, there are many variables.

We have machines available from 4kw up to 50kw in the hire fleet.

But if you want say a compressor only - of say 7kw - to run up to 60 hrs a week - on a 12 month agreement - it goes like this.

New 7kw Vane or Screw  495 + vat per Month 

New or nearly new 7kw with dryer, filters and tank   595 + vat Per Month

Short term hire would be as above + 50%

Very short term would be poa. only

Is this for me?

Well only you can decide that one.

This is the feedback we get from existing hire customers:-

"One monthly payment thats it.

No service costs

No repair costs

No unexpected costs

Any problems - just call our service dept - all sorted at no cost to you.

Total peace of mind for a fixed monthly payment".

On-going costs - inflation

The monthly payment is fixed for the length of the agreement.

If you renew your agreement on the same machine - the payment will remain the same - we have customers who have kept the same machine for several years and are still on the same rate as when they started - inflation proof - in fact factoring in inflation they are actually paying less in real terms.

Existing Hire Customers who renew contracts but want a New machine of the same size or larger will get a considerable discount over the current rate to new customers at that time - that should keep your accountant happy.

Accountants like hire - it's very cost effective - with no nasty surprises.

  • There is a low initial outlay 2 months rental and a one off installation charge
  • You know exactly what your budget costs will be
  • No unexpected costs
  • No compressor service or repair costs again we pay for it all
  • If you need service or help just ring me no costs to you
  • No compressor depreciation to allow for
  • No budget for replacement of old compressors needed improve cash flow
  • Once hire scheme in place, forget about it and leave it all to me
  • Hassle free
  • It's cheaper in the long run than you might think

There are some very special offers at the moment and we always trying to be flexible to find a solution to suit you. 

As they say on the TV commercials - "Terms and conditions apply"

However, we are probably the easiest to deal with - so if we won't help, no one will.

No silly minimum period, no silly charges.

The whole idea of hire is that you have all advantages of the compressor and none of the problems - all repair costs are with the provider - no matter how costly - you just pay the monthly payment. 

Call us and see if we can help.
