Why Hire? Why is rental such a good idea?

Over the years, Watkins Hire have provided a large range of clients with bespoke hire solutions for cooling, heating and generator rental.

Why would a company or business want to hire any of the solutions available?

Cash flow and budget for expenditure is always under scrutiny, which is why rental is a great way to take advantage of fixed monthly costs and flexible contracts. Our contracts can cover a whole range of time periods and operational sizes – from a ten year rental to keep your commitment to customers down to breakdown cover for a critical piece of equipment.

Unreliable cooling equipment on site can give a negative effect throughout a range of processes, risking your business plan, or it could simply be the case that a working environment is uncomfortably hot. Whatever the disruption to your workforce or equipment, it will come with a cost, which is where Watkins Hire can help.

Many of our projects are to help throughout replacement cover, where permanent systems are being upgraded, but down-time is not an option. We can ensure that cooling and heating requirements are fulfilled to keep your business running throughout.

  • Tax Relief - As rental expenditure is 100% allowable against corporation tax, you can easily reduce what you pay.
  • No Need For Capital Expenditure - If you are waiting for approval from capex, or cannot obtain approval for a fixed period, our medium term rentals are good options. This can let you continue operations and get new contract based on a temporary plant basis.
  • Fixed Monthly Costs - With our constant rental prices, you can easily and accurately budget for outgoings and keep your cash flow high.
  • Inclusive 24/7 Call Out - As your heating or cooling system can be critical to the running of your business, we can ensure that you stay running with the use of our 24/7 call out facility via our dedicated phone number – 0800 999 6 365. We guarantee that one of our breakdown technicians will be back in touch with you within 1 hour to talk through your problem. If the problem requires a call out, we promise that an engineer will be on site within 4 hours of the decision being made.
  • No Charges For Maintenance - Some companies can issue invoices amounting to thousands of pounds for maintenance during rental, but with Watkins Hire, the price is included with the rental fee.
  • Flexibility - We can offer our services to meet changing needs throughout the year to suit fluctuations in demand or seasonal temperature changes. Why rent a chiller or heater for purposes they were not designed for?
  • Research & Development - If you want to trial a new product for extra capacity then you can trial the equipment before buying with Watkins Hire. This short term testing can help with the long term growth of your business.
  • New Premises & Short Term Leases - If you have moved into a new premises or have a short term lease, renting is a great option to cover your needs during this period. You might not have the time or inclination to install a new air-conditioning system until you have expanded your business.
