The UK’S leading and award winning tool and equipment hire company, HSS Hire, has announced an innovative new hire solution that involves the start up of new facilities at customer locations across the UK and Ireland, helping drive project efficiency as well as cost and environmental benefits.

The new ‘HSS Onsite’ branded service will compliment the established nationwide network of 250 branches and supercentres, consumers in both the UK and Ireland can now choose to hire tools and equipment from their own dedicated HSS equipment and training facility.

The HSS Onsite packages can be tailored to suit customers’ requirements, ranging from a ‘hot-desk’ in a pre-existing building to a double-stacked structure comprising full stockholding and training capabilities. Typical ‘Onsite’ packages would include a modular building housing shop facilities as well as equipment storage. There would also be personalised safety and directional signage throughout the site. It would include a minimum of one HSS colleague and a tailored range of resale and consumable items.

The concept was developed with customer in-mind, and enables easy and instant access to the very best equipment and customer service, with enhanced efficiency and flexibility. All these factors combine to ensure projects are completed successfully, on time and budget.

Fiona Perrin, Key Account Director at HSS, explains: “For customers working on a long-term or high value project, the HSS Onsite service offers them the most efficient and cost-effective way to source tools and equipment. It helps drive the productivity of onsite projects whilst also maximising their environmental sustainability and improving health and safety”.

There are already HSS Onsite facilities located on projects throughout the UK, including sites at Shell Centre, Canary Wharf, National Tennis Centre and Westfield Stratford.

Deane Hudson, Director of Kier Retail, said, “We are delighted with this innovative onsite facility offer – not only do we get immediate access to mission-critical equipment but it has also added value by assisting with onsite training”.

Regional Construction Director at ISG InteriorExterior, Dean Goodliffe, commented:
“The challenging projects we deliver require support and service of the highest order from out supply partners. To This end we have engaged with HSS to provide some of our key projects with a service that benefits our onsite contractors and the project as a whole. We have been extremely impressed with the standard and flexibility of the service provided.”

HSS Onsite is a service run by HSS Hire, who also offer a range of innovative hire related services such as HSS LiveHire, HSS Assured and HSS Pitstop, in addition to a network of over 250 stores and supercentres across the UK and Ireland.

Over 15,000 items are stocked for hire, including gardening tools, chainsaw and floor sander hire.
