About Buckhurst

Buckhurst Plant Hire was established in 1993 by the Walsh family. From our humble beginnings in a small yard with only a handful of machines as our offering the company has grown phenomenally in size since then. Buckhurst, with an annual turnover of £18 million, is now operating from several depots across the UK and Scotland with over 3000 pieces of machinery and plant

Buckhurst now employs over 80 dedicated people across our depots and field-based roles, whilst working hard to retain that small business family feel from the early ’90s.

During this time Buckhurst has developed a strong reputation in the industry for supplying quality plant equipment at very competitive prices. We are distinguished by our outstanding levels of customer service and this has underpinned our growth as well as ensuring a loyal customer base who have relied on Buckhurst for their equipment time and time again.

The company has established itself by working to four brand values, these are Reliability, Trust, Outstanding Service, and Local to You.

Our Mission Statement is to be the customers’ first choice for rental equipment – delivering a top level of service wherever and whenever required through a working culture and environment that allows our staff to develop and make decisions. In doing so they will share in the growth and prosperity of our business.

What’s it like to work for us you ask?

We are a very down-to-earth and fun bunch at Buckhurst and every depot has its own personality and culture.

Everyone has an important role to play within this family-run business, whereby you’re not just a number and you’re expected to roll your sleeves up and “muck in” so to speak, so you may need a pair of wellies in our plant yards!
