Very polite and responsive, dropped my hire item off nice and early and collected it within a couple of hours of me saying I'd finished with it. Good price too, would definitely use again.

NICK is always on hand to give good, informative advice on the plant and tools you need. He and the rest of the crew are testament to the name as they are GR8. The consultative way they can help people (who aren't builders/groundworkers or just don't have a clue!) Allows customers to make informed choices on the plant they require. Some of the plant that made my life easier was equipment that I didn't realise existed. "If you have a problem, if no one else can help, and if you can find them....maybe you can hire from The GR8-Team."

Needed a wacker plate > called > it arrived in about 10 minutes! Hadn't used one before so the guy gave me a tutorial and I've now compressed a layer of sub base nicely :) Won't be using anyone else, exceptional service 10/10

Really helpful, talked me through alternative options with other businesses as well as thorough overview of their own products & services. I think a hallmark of a great business is when they are confident enough to recommend alternative options to ensure the customer gets exactly what they are after, and not sold something not quite right.

I have used GR8 on at least 4 occasions, each time their service is absolutely spot on, they are all very friendly and give plenty of advice. All the kit I have hired from them has been in excellent condition and has been delivered on time and clean / ready to go. Their prices are very reasonable, even as a retail customer as opposed to a builder etc. If you are looking to hire anything from a breaker to a digger / dumper I would highly recommend you give these guys a call or visit their showroom.
