New Vehicles Grace Our Fleet

The arrival of two new Fords upgraded our vehicle fleet at the end of November.

First to arrive was a superb Transit Connect. This versatile little van was bought to replace the Mercedes Vito and will be used mainly for site maintenance visits.

The second vehicle was a new Ranger pick-up truck, bought to replace the Nissan Navara 4×4. This truck will go straight into all-day-every-day delivery duties.

Both vehicles were beautifully sign-written by Stuart Cook at David Charles Group of Didcot.

Website Continues to be Upgraded

Our website www.didcotplant.co.uk has enjoyed a lot more improvements recently with the addition of photographs and equipment information in the hire catalogue section.

With the latest addition of photographs 99% of the catalogue carries a photograph. That extra 1% will be finished over the coming weeks. The equipment information aspect of the catalogue is about two thirds complete with 100% coverage expected soon. This feature of the catalogue adds a bit of pertinent information about each item, whether it be specification information or advice about using the equipment safely.

Extra Barriers

Low Level BarriersThe popularity of the 2.5m long, 1.1m high multiple usage low level barriers forced us to add 80 more to our hire fleet in November.

They are ideal for pedestrian demarcation and control typically faced by the events industry. The barriers are a one-piece design with heavy gauge tubular feet, welded in an offset position. They are joined together with a locking hook and eye system. This makes it almost impossible to violate the barriers integrity until removal is required.

Low Level Barriers can be found in the Fencing section of our hire catalogue.

New Dehumidifiers

New Andrews FD30 DehumidifierThe recent bad weather and subsequent demand for dehumidifers has prompted us to increase our dehumidifier fleet with the initial purchase of three Andrews FD30s.

The FD30 is ideal for building drying, minimizing building times by creating the perfect conditions for the ‘wet’ trades such as plasterers and decorators, as well as helping with drying out after flooding and water damage situations.

It is suitable for both domestic and industrial usage.

Dehumidifiers can be found in the Heaters, Building Dryers & Air Conditioners section of our hire catalogue.
