Contract Plant Rental provide fully tailored and bespoke plant rental solutions specifically designed to meet the needs and requirements of clients nationwide. They specialise in mid- to long-term rental but also offering short term hire, as well as contract hire and rent to buy solutions too.

The plant solutions specialists provide full 24/7 support and back up for all clients nationwide to keep their businesses operating as efficiently as possible. Operating predominantly within the heavy side of the plant machinery industry including scrap recycling and waste management, construction, quarrying, and mining, but with an increasingly strong foothold in Government and local authority contracts, each machine is fully specified and built to client’s requirements rather than coming as standard ‘off the shelf’ and this includes any extras to ensure maximum productivity for the client’s business.

Contract Plant Rental provide total peace of mind for customers. Companies enjoy the benefits of new machinery without the headaches of ownership. The benefits of hiring from Contract Plant Rental are that we offer new machinery from the industry’s leading brands with no upfront costs, no deposit, and no VAT. We have a 24/7 parts, service and repairs back up, as well as payment plans with fixed monthly costs for easy budgeting, flexible terms, and the option to buy or return the machine at the end of the term.

Another benefit of contract hire is that the company handles all administration of the equipment throughout the contract, including servicing and maintenance, which eliminates the need for businesses to spend valuable resources on doing this in-house.

The team at Contract Plant Rental endeavour to be long term partners rather than just equipment suppliers, offering plant and people interface training, product familiarisation, inductions and various environment and safety courses to keep you and your staff fully compliant, safe and productive.

Going the extra mile, Contract Plant Rental provide further added value with extra security such as remote immobilisation, tracking systems, unique key security, immobiliser key and pin start whilst all machines come complete with extra safety features such as audible reversing alarms and all large excavators come with dual locking quick hitches, reversing cameras, alarms and check valves as standard.


Contract Plant Rental built our reputation in the heavy machinery industry, serving the most demanding sectors such as quarrying and mining, demolition and large scale construction. Of late and to keep up with industry demand, we have made a multi-million-pound investment into material handling machines for the scrap and waste management sectors. This latest investment makes the company the UKs largest material handler hirer.

Access equipment

In recent years we formed a dedicated Access Equipment division. Serving local authorities, the aviation industry and media production companies to name a few, the comprehensive fleet of access equipment includes both diesel and electric scissor lifts and boom lifts from the industries leading brands including JCB, Genie and Niftylift. The access machinery fleet offers the latest and most emission compliant machines, whether they be fuel or electric powered, ideal for working outside, in cities or in low emission zones and even inside buildings.


Further completing our offering comes the dedicated attachments division. Providing attachments from flail mowers to hydraulic breakers, crusher buckets to selector grabs and everything in between. Serving the landscaping and maintenance sectors, construction, demolition, quarrying and more.


With an increasing number of factors encouraging people to go electric, Contract Plant Rental have an increasingly large fleet of electric machines. Perfectly suited for government and local authorities, particularly in low emission zones such as towns and cities. Our latest multi-million-pound investment included the acquisition of electric forklifts and telehandlers as well as the UKs first electric material handling machines for the waste recycling industry.
