Moore Equipment Hire MD, Stan Moore. MOVING FORWARD

Stan Moore worked in senior positions at many of the biggest national hirers, but decided to go his own way five years ago. His business today attests to his experience, his attention to detail and great customer service.


here are a great many upsides to this job, although interesting and diverse

locations tend not to be among them – put another way, I get to see a lot of faceless industrial estates. Moore Equipment Hire is an exception, being located on a broad avenue in a clean and modern business park, cheek by jowl with INEOS’ swanky UK headquarters. MD Stan Moore’s depot is easily spotted, being marked by a trio of pristine elevated MEWPs. Stan informs me that they’ve been out a number of times, and I soon discover that all his equipment is kept this way. If an items comes back worse for wear, it doesn’t stay that way very long. Stan himself is welcoming and gregarious, and has a storied history in hire, so let’s hear it:

“I joined the hire industry 34 years ago as a young school leaver,” he begins. “I wanted to get straight into work and learn quickly, so I left school to join PB Hire as a trainee hire manager.

“This was a drop in at the deep end, as my boss departed off sick after three months, and I was left to manage the depot at the age of 17. He returned six months later, but only for a few weeks. In the meantime, we had trebled the revenue against our average monthly figure.

"I've been fortunate to work in senior positions at Speedy, GAP, Hire Station and HSS over the years covering both sales and

operational roles. This was very enjoyable and the experience gained was very useful setting up our own business.

"I set up Moore Equipment Hire with my great friend and business partner Billy Beattie, after he kept telling me that I should open up a hire business as its clearly what I love doing. We then made it happen. I initially planned to call the business MB Hire (Moore/Beattie). However, Billy highlighted it should be my name as its who our customers know and have many years’ history hiring from. So Moore Equipment Hire Ltd was formed, and also as legacy to my both my late parents who had sadly passed."
