Coronavirus Update from the Unit Hire Team

Coronavirus Update from the Unit Hire Team

The hire industry has been included in the list of essential businesses that are exempt from closure. We will continue to remain open in order to supply units to the NHS and Emergency Services. We will also continue to help all our existing partners and contracts with any needs that arise during this difficult time.

Prioritising essential businesses

With this in mind we will be operating a skeletal staff both within the office and our yard to minimise the risk to our business. We aim to prioritise all essential businesses whether this be deliveries, collections or call outs, please make sure you let us know when placing your order what industry you are from.

Inevitably our lead times may be a little delayed over this period due to fewer staff and heightened measures in place to ensure the safety of our equipment and people involved.

Business as Usual

Our focus remains on ‘Business as Usual’ and providing an uninterrupted service to you, our valued customer, whilst remaining diligent and responsive to government recommendations and guidance. We continue to take guidance for our actions from the government and Public Health England and monitor developments closely.

We would like to wish everyone good health and hope everyone stays safe and sensible throughout this outbreak. We will endeavour to keep all of our customers up to date with any changes throughout the coming days/weeks.

If you have further questions then please don’t hesitate to contact the Unit Hire team on 0800 9777590, or via the contact page.
