Some of our customers only use drum handling attachments on their forklift trucks for a specific task once or twice a year, or for brief periods of time, in which case it makes sense to hire it from us instead of purchasing outright.

Hiring drum handling equipment

We offer equipment on short or long term hire from a minimum period of a week to however long a customer needs it. The items hired most frequently are the 1-DLR single drum and 2-DLR double drum handlers and our drum rotator model SC10.

Even if the job is short notice, we usually have what’s required on our premises in Eastleigh and we offer a delivery service within the UK, so the equipment can be on site within a day or two. We can also arrange to collect the equipment on completion.

Advantages of hiring instead of buying drum handling equipment

There are good reasons for choosing the rental option:

  • It’s more cost effective than buying for short term use
  • The equipment isn’t sitting in a corner all year until it’s next needed
  • You don’t have the responsibility for servicing, safety inspections and insurance

Every item that leaves our factory, whether for sale or hire, goes through a full safety inspection and is certified so you can be confident that when it arrives it’s safe to use and  H&S regulations compliant.

So, if your company is in the unusual position of having to handle a consignment of drums or barrels, or you have a short notice requirement, it makes sense to hire. Contact our office and we’ll probably have the specialist equipment you need in stock so we can get it to you when you need it.
