About GR8 Tool Hire Bishops Stortford

GR8 Tool Hire Bishops Stortford is the head office of GR8. This is where the company first came to life and was founded in 2013 with just 3 members of staff.

Since then, the company has experienced exponential growth, in part due to the partnership with Ridgeons, and this has led to a three-fold increase in equipment available to hire as well as valued staff members.

We are extremely passionate about our business and feel that we have developed a modern, dynamic and fresh approach to the tool hire industry. We seek to provide you with expert comprehensive advice and assistance and pride ourselves on our outstanding personal service.

We offer personal on time deliveries/collections in our distinctive branded vehicles, with demonstrations available upon delivery.

These are just a small handful of the things that make GR8 the company it is today!

Recently had an issue with a couple of hires and pleased to say after talking to nick GR8 where more than helpful the service provided was excellent and sorted promptly would recommend

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.

This is what happens when you hire our JCB Scissor Lift for your warehouse

The customer hired one of our GR8 JCB scissor lifts to help them access areas in their warehouse that they were struggling with. Access equipment makes it so much easier to access hard to reach areas compared to trying to climb up and down ladders or scaffolding, not to mention safer.
