House Building

PROVIDING TOOLS AND EQUIPMENT FOR EVERY STEP OF THE BUILD PROCESS

Over the last few years, Hire Station has developed a natural synergy with the House Building industry. We work with some of the industry’s leading contractors and the equipment we provide is universally used on house building sites across the UK.

We are also a member of the Home Builders Federation (HBF) – the only tool hire company to have membership with this industry body.

We have invested heavily in our fleet to ensure that the equipment on our shelves is the equipment you need at every stage of the build process. From Wet and dry cut off saws to First and Second Fix Impulse Nailers to Electric, Petrol or Diesel Concrete Mixers, we have all the equipment required by all the different tradesmen on site.­

We also understand the difficulties faced during the winter months - and to that end, have developed a strong fleet of lighting equipment from plasterers lights all the way up to lighting towers. Furthermore, our extensive heating range ensures that the build process isn’t slowed down by the cold snap. We supply dehumidifiers to dry out single rooms, as well as space heaters that can dry rooms on two separate floors from one stationary unit.

House Building Support Managers

At Hire Station, we fully understand the reactive nature of the house building market and the need for the right equipment to be delivered to site as quickly as possible. All of our Call Centre and Branch staff are therefore fully trained on all of the different products in our range and are targeted on their response times to enquiries.

In addition, we have also created the role of House Building Sector Support Manager. These individuals have accreditations in the safe use of power tools as well as a wealth of knowledge on our product range.

Their role will be to liaise with your team on site and undertake tool box talks on the safe and correct use of certain tools as well as to go through Health and Safety regulations around such things as Dust and Hand/Arm Vibration. This is a service that we offer free of charge as part of our dedication to servicing this sector.

In order to support our House Building customers further, we have created this page which can act as a quick link to all of our key products / provide key contact information as well as further reading on the support we can offer to you on site.

Testimonial

BDW Trading Limited, which comprises the Barratt, and David Wilson brands, pride ourselves on our high standards and attention to detail. As the only national housebuilder to be awarded the exclusive ’5 star’ builder status by the HBF, putting our customers first is our overriding principal and that means building great homes and providing an outstanding customer journey. With this in mind we have found that Hire Station have always met or exceeded our high expectations.

With the introduction of their Sector Support Managers, this has supported our group agreement greatly and strengthened relationships with our on site development teams and our appointed sub-contractors. The SSM’s are a great resource for specifying the correct products for a task, advising on H&S practices and demonstrating products on site. This additional benefit demonstrates the value of a trading agreement with Hire Station we have enjoyed for many years.
