A multi million-pound investment into their already comprehensive Material Handler fleet make Contract Plant Rental the UK’s largest Material Handler hirer in the country bringing the fleet size of scrap and waste material handlers to just over 60 and with a total fleet on nearly 300 machines of varying types.

The contract hire firm supplies brand new machines on short- and long-term hire to varying sectors, from construction, ports, quarry and rail to the waste and scrap metal recycling industries. Boasting an already strong fleet of 50 plus material handlers featuring names from the industry’s leading brands such as, Atlas, Fuchs, Liebherr and Sennebogen, their hefty 6 million pound investment into scrap and waste spec machines will increase their fleet by a whopping 25% to 62 machines by the end of the year.

A share of the investment will see delivery of multiple popular JCB wastemaster telehandlers and a number of forklifts increasing their overall offering to the scrap and waste sectors. With additional investment in their specialist waste and electric forklift, telehandler and loading shovel fleets makes them the one stop shop in specialist equipment.

The further improved hire fleet will feature Atlas, Fuchs and Liebherr material handlers from 15 ton to 40 ton and everything in between. “As a company we are very forward thinking and it’s our aim to be at the forefront of the development of Material Handler technology, investing in the industry’s leading machines and giving customers the flexibility to enjoy short term and long-term contract rental.”, explains Mark Kennedy, Managing Director at Contract Plant Rental. “Customers now understand production is more important to them than ownership of equipment and all the hidden costs associated with this. The downtime of equipment and value of the equipment is unpredictable in harsh waste environments and is never calculated when buying equipment but for those who still wish to buy, we have a good stock of equipment for short time hire for those occasions the customers equipment is out of action.”

“2021 saw a large investment into electric powered material handlers from us here at CPR and with a number of them out on sites nationwide as we speak, our investment into the technology of the future continues for 2022 with a fleet of electric forklifts and telehandlers.”

With a continued lack of machines available on the market and regular delays from manufacturers, opting for a flexible hire package whether short or long term from a trusted hire partner like Contract Plant Rental, seems a very viable option. The benefits of Contract Hire are numerous and many businesses report the benefits of the flexible terms, the variety of machines and the spec available. The idea of short- or long-term hiring a machine where all the maintenance, servicing and repairs are included in the fixed low monthly cost is ideal for easy budgeting.

Contract Plant Rental cover the whole of the UK with six locations and engineers available 24/7 to suit the needs of customers working hours. Mark adds, “The Contract Plant Rental model allows customers to spec the machine to their requirements and the sectors they cover. With long term hire the customer gets a new machine to their specification with no deposit and with the knowledge when the machine is about to approach that time when major components may fail, they can swap out the machine for a new one, keeping production going to capacity.”
