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.
