Builders and landscapers working throughout the London city region are set to benefit from quick and easy access to mini-excavators thanks to a new partnership between tool and equipment hire specialists HSS Hire Group (“HSS Hire”) and construction equipment experts Kubota.
Under the partnership, which is an industry-first, 200 brand new machines from Kubota will be available with next-day delivery within the Greater London area. HSS Hire will supply state-of-the-art kit with GPS tracker technology installed as standard, and with a peace of mind guarantee of a four hour breakdown response service 24/7.
The service is likely to appeal to builders and landscapers based within the Capital but is also available nationwide to anyone with a contract or job within Greater London. HSS Hire has forty-plus branches operating across the capital giving customers high availability of well-maintained products and access to specialist related services.
The Kubota range of equipment is ideally suited to a wide variety of jobs where space is at a premium, like working in back gardens or other areas where access is limited by narrow gates or doorways – and for anything from digging footings, new patios, converting basements, constructing ponds or gardening and landscaping. HSS Hire anticipates customer take up to be equally wide ranging.
Kubota will be providing specialist maintenance, coordination and troubleshooting under the agreement that will, subject to a successful trial in London, be rolled out nationally across HSS Hire’s network of over 300 locations.
John Gill, CEO at HSS Hire said:
“Mini-excavators are really important items of equipment to all our customers and there is clear demand for this type of ‘mini plant hire’ throughout London. We are committed to HSS’ customers having the tools they need, where and when they need them, delivered with seamless customer service. Our partnership with Kubota allows us to do this and we aim to win new and deepen existing customer relationships with the service which is available now.”
Dave Roberts, MD at Kubota UK said:
“This landmark agreement between Kubota and HSS Hire brings together two key players in the building and construction sector. Being awarded the contract to supply our market leading range of mini-excavators to HSS Hire is testament to the build quality, performance and reliability of our machines and the high demand for our products in the market, all backed up with first class aftersales support. We are looking forward to working in partnership with HSS Hire and building on this in the future.”
