The plant hire industry provides heavy machinery and equipment to the construction industry on either a short-term or lease-hire basis. Since plant hire equipment and machinery tends to be expensive, companies usually finance or lease their purchases, allowing them to stock more units.
Plant hire & machinery financing options allow businesses to access the machinery they need without having to pay the full cost upfront. This allows you to spread the cost of the machinery over a longer period of time, while still being able to access the machinery your customers require to get the job done.

Finance and leasing options also provide plant hire companies with the opportunity to upgrade their equipment more frequently. By leasing equipment, companies can return the equipment at the end of the lease period and upgrade to newer, more advanced equipment. This allows them to stay competitive and offer their customers the most up-to-date equipment.
