About Central Plant Hire

Central Plant Hire is a well established independent privately owned business, originally started in 1988 with a couple of backhoe loaders working mainly at Gatwick Airport. We pride ourselves in now offering a modern fleet of over 40 machines, specialising in self drive mini diggers and dumpers.


Central Plant Hire is located half way between Horsham and Crawley giving us excellent access to most of Sussex and Surrey and for longer hires, the areas around South London. We welcome the opportunity of discussing customer requirements in all of these areas and pride ourselves on customer care.

We believe in the core values of giving our customers exceptional service, good advice, quality modern machines and competitive rates. In doing this we aim to achieve long term relationships with our customers no matter how big or small. With this in mind, we stock the market leading Volvo mini diggers from 1.5 tonne upwards; these have proved to be incredibly efficient, powerful and reliable machines. For the micro diggers, we run the Kubota K008-3, an incredibly compact digger, again giving great digging power for their size. Our fleet of mini diggers is one of if not the most modern in the area and all our machines, even the micro diggers, are fitted with quick hitch systems making the changing of buckets and attachments quick and easy.
