Hire Station - Tools for hire and purchase for Industry, Construction & DIY

Specialist divisions

Along with Hire Station Vp plc has established a new section of specialised divisions whose forte is in the hire and sale of specialised heating, cooling and lifting equipment.

Along with our other specialist businesses such as Arcotherm, ESS Safeforce and Virtual Hire, Hire Station created two areas of excellence:

  • Heating Centres of Excellence
  • Lifting Centres of Excellence

These are designated branches whose expertise lies in providing unique equipment such as direct fire heaters and lifting gear. From there our ‘Dual Excellence Centres’ were developed. These are a combined heating and lifting centres under one roof.

Our 29 centres of excellence, over half of our branches, provide the latest equipment available from chain blocks and material lifting to Phoen 110 oil heaters and our new fleet of GW31 LPG heaters.

Not only do our branches carry the most modern stock but they also provide all the relevant and required training, especially in regards to working at height. All of our available training courses are view-able on our training page. Our branches also now provide the ‘Big 5’ warranty available with our heaters. This means your repairs can now be done by our highly trained staff in the branch.

Please browse through the individualised tabs below to learn more about our 3 unique 'Excellence Centres' along with all of our specialised branch locations combined with a map showing where they all are placed across the UK.
