We are one of 16 Eagle Plant branches across the south west of
England, chiefly supplying machines like Takeuchi mini excavators and
Terex Benford dumpers up to 7.5 tonne. We also have a fleet of more than
200 Thal portable toilets that are hired to construction industry customers,
and we supply a growing range of tools and equipment.
Visiting the Show is even more important nowadays, because fewer sales

reps take the trouble to visit us to tell us about new products.
Wednesday 3 & Thursday 4 February
Some suppliers even seem to be cutting back on the number of catalogues

they mail out. At the exhibition, you can see what’s new from suppliers and

ask them technical questions face to face.
I am going to the Show because it is an excellent showcase

for suppliers to highlight their products to hirers.

As well as finding out
about the latest products,
the Show is a great way of
meeting up with friends in
the industry and talking to
other hirers. If you work for
LOCAL SPARES
a national company, it’s
easier to make contact with
colleagues in other areas to
discuss equipment trends
and industry issues, but
independents can be
isolated.
The exhibition enables you to keep in touch and talk to people face to face.
As well as hire, we are very pro-active about selling the consumables,
accessories and PPE our customers need to get jobs done efficiently and
safely. We always have a good look round at the Show for new products that
will present us with new sales opportunities as a complement to hire.
I am going to the Show to take advantage of the great

networking opportunities.

Business is unpredictable. A month ago demand went through the
roof. Then it quietened down, possibly because people are wondering what
might happen after the general election regarding public spending and
taxation.
However, you have to
remain positive. We
do everything to pull
in hire business and
when a customer
asks you whether you
have something, the
answer has to be yes. Immediate delivery on all
I will be going to the
Show to see the latest
