Every business thrives on making profits. So, when it comes to sourcing the equipment we use on site, why are we so obsessed with ownership? Plant machinery hire is a cost effective solution that provides you with the tools needed to ensure a smooth project, minus the burden of heavy costs and the hassle that comes with finding permanent storage space for heavy plant machinery.

 Here, we share our top 10 reasons to hire your plant machinery. With so many pros, ranging from increased flexibility to a lack of compromisation on quality, we don’t think it’ll take much convincing…


As previously mentioned, one of the most obvious reasons to opt for plant machinery hire is to save money. 

Purchase costs for plant machinery can be high, with the average used 3 ton dumper costing upwards of £5000. Investing in equipment can drastically increase the amount spent on a project, with some businesses even being forced to take out big-budget loans simply to cover the elevated cost. 

Choosing plant machinery hire gets the job done efficiently, whilst still optimising profits.

No Maintenance Costs 

Opting for plant machinery hire also avoids equipment maintenance costs, meaning you can focus solely on the job at hand, while plant hire companies like us take care of the rest! 

No Plant Machinery Disposal 

Plant machinery hire also comes with the added benefit of not having to worry about selling or disposing of the equipment when it is no longer useful to you. Instead, you can simply hire the machinery for as long as you need it and return it to us when you’re done, it’s as easy as that!

Increased Flexibility 

At Central Plant Hire, we understand that projects don’t always go to plan. Timings and deadlines can change, and that’s OK! Opting for plant machinery hire gives you the flexibility to access equipment faster on a long or short-term basis.

High Quality Equipment

Choosing to hire your plant machinery doesn’t mean you have to compromise on quality. In fact, in many cases, the machinery business’s hire from us is of a higher specification than any piece of equipment they could afford to buy outright. 

 Plant hire companies also regularly invest in upgrading their equipment to meet changing industry regulations, meaning you can rest assured that your plant machinery will include all the latest features to get the job done quickly and efficiently.  

No Storage Hassle

When purchasing heavy plant machinery, it’s not just the hefty costs you need to worry about, you also need to consider where you’re going to keep the equipment between projects. 

With over £70 million worth of equipment stolen from construction sites every year in the UK, careful consideration of where you store your equipment is extremely important in preventing theft. 

By opting for plant machinery hire, you don’t need to worry about any of that, the equipment is simply delivered to wherever it needs to go and returned as soon as a project is completed. 

So Much to Choose From! 

At Central Plant Hire, we offer a range of plant machinery, from micro and mini diggers, to 3 ton loading dumpers, so you can hire everything you need, all from one place! 

Only Hire What You Need

How many times have you walked past a construction site and seen countless pieces of machinery and tools scattered around the site untouched? If you’re not one for wasting money on equipment you know you won’t need to use as often as others, plant machinery hire is the perfect option for you. 

No Transport Costs

If your construction company is working across different sites, it can be a logistical nightmare trying to transport equipment to each separate location. Hiring equipment closest to your site is a simple, convenient solution to save you the cost of hiring specialised transport vehicles.

At Central Plant Hire, we specialise in self-drive plant equipment hire in the Sussex and Surrey Area, making us the perfect choice for your plant machinery hire needs in the South East of England.
