Our Customers Know Best

“After trying other Arb machinery hire companies throughout the central belt we settled with Craig at Kipper Hire. His ability to respond well to enquiries and requests has made dealing with his easy. For reliability, value and great machinery we use his services for stump grinder hire. Distance is not an issue due to the option of delivery. We look forward to developing a long term working relationship and using more plant hire services from Kipper as our needs and their range grows.”

Our most common asked questions.

I don’t own a trailer can I still hire?

Yes, we have a selection of different trailers that can be hired with any of our machines for just an additional £10(exc. VAT)/day.

Is it only Arb machinery you service and repair?

No, we have highly skilled engineers in the workshop who are happy to work on anything from small tools up to heavy plant. Give us a call to discuss your requirements.

Do I need a chipper or a shredder?

Chippers have very sharp blades and are only for fresh wood straight off the tree. Shredders use hammers and are for everything else, green waste, old pallets, construction timber with nails in, old kitchen cabinets, ivy, some plastics, etc. If you are in any doubt about what type of machine you need just give us a call on – 01577 524 007

I see you are closed on weekends, is it still possible to hire over the weekend?

Yes, when availability allows we are happy to do weekend hires but they must be collected/delivered Friday afternoon and dropped off/collected Monday morning.
