Hirer’s capital event

Daren, right, and David Hare of Hares Hire Services in Rainham got a lot from attending our recent Executive Hire Road Show in Cobham for hirers in London and the South East of England. “We are big supporters of the Executive Hire Show, and

attending the Cobham event is like a taster for the exhibition in February. It gave us an update on new developments planned for the 2018 Show. We took advantage of some good deals from Hire Supply Co on lights, mowers and other equipment, and we had a close look at Bona’s floor sanders. All in all it was a great way of keeping in touch with our industry.”

Representing Hire Station’s various locations in greater London were, from left, Mick Pritchard, Core Tools Business MD Brian Sherlock, Simon Clothier and Carla Hicks. “Personnel from our other regions have previously attended successful Executive Hire Road Shows in various locations throughout the country,” Brian told EHN. “So we wanted people from our London operations to benefit from the same networking opportunities.”

Brandon Hire fielded a team of no fewer than 12 people from eight of its locations throughout London and the South East of England. Regional Director Phil Tizzard said, “The Road Shows provide us with an opportunity to engage with a number of suppliers and to meet up with

other industry colleagues. It also enables some of our team who aren’t able to attend the main Executive Hire Show at Coventry in February to get involved.”

Steve Hull from Southern Plant & Tool Hire of Henley-on-Thames, said that the Cobham Road Show was “a great way of meeting up with like- minded industry professionals and sharing ideas, including suppliers and people from other hire companies.”

“We’ve come here to get some new ideas and to see some of the latest equipment on the market,” said Vince Luiso, right, and Nick White from Plant & Tool Hire in Watford. “We’ve gathered a lot of information on various products and initiatives that we can apply to the business, and we are looking forward to attending other Road Shows for region in the future.”

“These events are a great idea because they give you a real opportunity to see a selection of suppliers and have meaningful conversations with them,” said Tony Criddle, right, of Beaver Tool Hire (Chichester) Ltd, and Neil Johnson. “We find we are constantly busy throughout the day at our depots and it can be difficult to see sales reps if they call, so the regional Road Shows are ideal. We are also really looking forward to attending the main Executive Hire Show in February.”


Lance Foster from Southern Hoist Services in Southampton told EHN, “I was very interested in the Snorkel stand and we discussed the company’s range of compact push-along mini scissor lifts. These could be very useful for us to use ourselves on sites where we are installing equipment. The Road Show was also a great opportunity to network and to meet up with some old industry colleagues from the past.”
