Our History

Buckhurst Plant Hire was established in 1993 by the Walsh Family. From beginning in a small yard with only a handful of machines including a couple of tractor winches and a 3CX.

The company has grown in size to now operating from 6 depots with over 3000 pieces of machinery and equipment. We also now have over 120 staff members working throughout the UK. During this time Buckhurst has developed a reputation for supplying quality plant equipment at competitive prices. The high levels of customer service for which the company is known underpin this growth and have ensured that many loyal customers have relied on Buckhurst for their equipment for many years.

Our Values

As a company we work five brand values, Teamwork, Trust, Customer Commitment, Urgency and Sustainability. These values are what describe and identify us, they help us to provide excellent and reliable customer service for you.

At Buckhurst, we hire a vast range of equipment through our main company divisions: Plant Hire, Utility Plant Hire, Specialist Plant and Transport. This year, we have invested over ยฃ10 million ensuring our customers have the very latest equipment from the leading manufacturers across the world.

'Putting our customers at the centre of everything we do'

At Buckhurst, we have developed an award-winning โ€˜Customer First Cultureโ€™. Our customers range from some of the most high profile construction companies in the UK to our many local and DIY customers.

We aim to be not merely a supplier of hired equipment with associated maintenance and call out cover, but as a partner actively contributing to the effectiveness of our customersโ€™ business needs.

We put our customersโ€™ needs first in everything, from concept and planning through to delivery and post-contract, and can offer a host of benefits such as a state-of-the-art extranet facility giving customers on-line real-time account tracking.

We have a national account management function and can offer preferred or sole supplier agreements, whereby customers can reduce their equipment supplier bases with bespoke deals that provide peace of mind and significant savings in time and money. We invest heavily in new equipment, selecting only brand leaders as suppliers, building long-term relationships with them to ensure we offer the very latest and high quality equipment.

Buckhurst Plant Hire offers operated and self-drive plant, depending on your needs. All our operators are fully qualified and are reliable, trustworthy and competent.
