Making sure an event runs smoothly or that a construction site has all the necessary equipment calls for a joined-up, can-do approach and exceptional coordination skills: enter waste removal and equipment hire specialist PAL Hire.
As lots of you will know, I Love Bramhall has organised many local events over the years but there’s one company we know we can always rely on when it comes to putting preparations in place for a knockout event, and that’s PAL Hire. We met up with company directors Sam Snelson and Dan Daintry, as well as marketing manager David Kitchenham, to find out what gives PAL Hire the edge.
Based at Rhino Court in Hazel Grove, PAL Hire provides solution-based hire services for the construction and events industries, covering all equipment and waste removal requirements at competitive prices. From generators to fencing, tower lights to toilets – PAL Hire brokers the best equipment hire deals for clients, managing the process from start to finish.
Starting out life as a skip hire company a decade ago and moving into the online hire brokerage arena a few years later, PAL Hire has grown exponentially in the five years since the business changed hands. Formerly based in Adswood, the business’ Bramhall connection comes courtesy of Sam’s husband Russell, owner of IT systems consultancy Prestige Logic, which was based in the village until very recently. Now, both businesses have settled at Rhino Court and are going from strength to strength.
Sam and Dan took over PAL Hire in 2012 and soon tapped into the potential of the firm to offer a bespoke, full-service provision that extended much further than skip hire alone. Clients began to ask for greater variety of hire equipment; PAL Hire delivered – it was a move that enabled the business to reach its current level of success, employing 40 staff and managing around 2,500 orders each month.
PAL Hire’s can-do attitude means they almost never turn down requests and have catered for clients up and down the country, going the extra mile in many cases to ensure their customers’ needs are met. Providing hire equipment for small events such as I Love Bramhall’s very own Paws and Play in the Park to much larger occasions like Tatton Park’s prestigious RHS Flower Show, the business has developed an excellent professional reputation locally – and beyond.
PAL Hire has established productive working relationships with trusted suppliers, which means they can negotiate the best prices for their clients while ensuring optimum service levels. What’s more, customers benefit from a dedicated account manager committed to tailoring the experience to best reflect their unique requirements. Fully ISO 9001-accredited, PAL Hire also provides peace of mind that their services meet statutory and regulatory requirements.
It’s this commitment to service excellence that sets the company apart, and the ethos filters through the firm from top to bottom; the company’s positive business spirit drives employees at all levels to work hard and reap the benefits accordingly. And the journey to the top is something Sam and Dan know only too well, having started out in data entry roles and worked their way up to director level.
As the company has grown and developed, Sam and Dan have fine-tuned the business model to offer a truly bespoke service. Prospective customers can get an idea of what plant or equipment hire may be necessary for their specific project via the tools on the website, which allow clients to virtually ‘plan’ their event or construction site. All the main elements are covered, including power requirements, waste management, fencing or barriers and more. Once the an overview of the equipment has been planned, prospective clients can request a no-obligation quote, or get in touch with the company directly to discuss their plans in more detail.
Alongside running a successful business, PAL Hire produces monthly trade magazine Skip Hire & Waste– a publication for the recycling, skip hire and waste management communities. Available in physical and electronic formats, the magazine is a comprehensive source of information, news and expert opinion. PAL Hire also organises an annual industry event in connection with the magazine; Waste 2018 promises to be a fantastic networking opportunity bringing together suppliers and industry professionals this June in Leamington Spa.
