Hird, the mini crane hire, powered access hire and glass equipment specialist has published its first comprehensive hire brochure.
The brochure contains full details of all the mini cranes, pick and carry cranes, spider cranes, cherry pickers, scissor lifts and glass handling equipment Hird has for hire.
Publication of the 74-page guide follows Hird’s success in winning important new contracts – none more eye catching than the supply of glass handling spider cranes for The Shard, Europe’s tallest sky scraper.
Phil Hird, Managing Director of Hird, based in Hull, Yorkshire, said:
“We now have a Southern Depot in Surrey to serve London and the South East.
“We make sure we offer the best compact lifting, powered access and glass handling machines for hire or for sale.
“The legacy of the tough economic times we’ve been through is that hire customers are much more demanding. They expect the best equipment, the best health and safety performance and the most flexible, cost-effective contract deals.
“The new Hird brochure, available in hard copy or online, represents a major step forward for us. Our customers have been asking us for a one stop shop for their mini crane and powered access hire needs so we’ve delivered it.”
In 2013, Hird will also celebrate its 30th anniversary.
Phil Hird said: “Hird started in 1983 with a single crane and one van, offering a machinery moving service. Today, our range of equipment and services requires a 74 page hire brochure. That says a lot about where we have come from.
“We provide contract lifting services, plus mini crane and IPAF-certified powered access training courses. With glass handling services, our range of glass handling attachments is unrivalled.
“Our powered access equipment includes diesel, electric and bi-energy aerial booms, indoor and outdoor scissor lifts and personnel lifts from the best manufacturers.
“Technology for materials handling and powered access is changing rapidly. Latest building designs and health and safety standards require ever more specialist equipment.
“At Hird, we are determined to keep up with this rapid technological development. We want our brochure to be the must have resource for anyone needing mini-crane, powered access and glass handling equipment.”
Hird is the sole UK and Ireland distributor for Valla mini cranes and Winlet glazing robots – other brands available include UNIC mini cranes, Genie booms and scissor lifts, Hinowa spider platforms and Woods vacuum lifters.
The Hird brochure is split into separate hire sections, including pick and carry cranes, spider cranes, powered access, glass vacuum lifters, glazing robots, counter balance floor cranes and glazing accessories.
It provides full product details and specifications plus safety guides and information about other Hird services, such as contract lifting and machinery moving, equipment service and maintenance, and training.
