Rabbit Plant Hire Makes Major Investment in the Future

At Rabbit Plant Hire, we’re not just part of the construction industry; we strive to lead it. Our journey is marked by continuous evolution, adapting to the ever-changing needs of construction sites across Sussex and surrounding areas. This commitment to progress is evident in our recent major investments. In this article, we’ll share the exciting developments at Rabbit Plant Hire, including our expansion in equipment and facilities, and how these changes are set to enhance the services we offer.

Investment in New Plant Fleet

We understand that the right equipment can make all the difference in construction projects. That’s why we’ve recently expanded our fleet. Our goal? To ensure that our clients have access to the best plant and equipment for their projects. Among the new additions to our plant hire fleet are:

Kubota k008 Doorway Diggers – These compact powerhouses are perfect for tight spaces without compromising efficiency. Ideal for urban construction sites, these diggers offer precision and reliability.

Kubota kx080-4 8t Excavator – A testament to our commitment to powerful and efficient solutions, this excavator is built for larger projects requiring robust performance. Its advanced technology ensures optimal productivity.

JCB CT260-120 & CT160-80 Rollers – Essential for site preparation, these rollers provide the groundwork for a successful project. They are the foundation of our commitment to start every project on solid ground.

Thwaites Dumpers (9t Straight, 6t Swivel, 6t Straight Tip) – Versatility meets efficiency with these dumpers. They’re designed for moving materials quickly and safely, making them indispensable for modern construction sites.

Each piece of equipment is chosen for its ability to enhance our plant hire service offering. They represent our ongoing commitment to investing in the future, ensuring we always provide the latest technology and most efficient solutions to our valued customers.

Modernisation of the Yard Site

At Rabbit Plant Hire, we believe that a well-organised base is key to delivering efficient services. That’s why we’ve embarked on a significant transformation of our yard and office area. This investment reflects our dedication not only to our fleet but also to our overall operational environment.

New Office and Expanded Yard Space – We’ve recently acquired the yard we were renting – a significant milestone for us. This purchase has opened doors to numerous improvements. We’ve demolished an old office at the back, creating more room for storage, crucial for our expanding range of services, including portable toilet units supplied by our sibling division Rabbit Toilet Hire.

A Modern Reception and Enhanced Facilities – The main building is undergoing a modern makeover. A new reception area is set to welcome our clients, reflecting the professionalism and warmth we stand for. The renovation also includes expanded parking space, catering to our growing team and their vehicles.

Upgraded Workshop and Staff Amenities – Our workshop staff, the backbone of our operations, will enjoy new facilities, including a state-of-the-art kitchen area. These enhancements not only boost morale but also increase efficiency, allowing us to serve you better.

These changes are not just about aesthetics; they’re about creating an environment that mirrors our commitment to excellence. We’re crafting a space that is efficient, welcoming and geared towards meeting the evolving needs of our industry.

Commitment to Quality and Sustainability

We take pride in the quality and reliability of our equipment. It’s not just about having the latest machinery; it’s about ensuring every piece of equipment is in the best possible condition for our clients. This commitment is at the heart of our operations and is a promise we’ve kept for years.

Rigorous Maintenance Programme – Every piece of equipment in our 300+ strong fleet undergoes regular, thorough maintenance checks. Our dedicated team of technicians meticulously inspects, repairs and maintains each item to guarantee peak performance. This attention to detail ensures that when you hire from us, you’re getting equipment that won’t let you down.

Three-Year Renewal Cycle – We believe in staying ahead of the curve. That’s why we operate a rigorous investment programme, renewing our plant fleet every three years. This cycle ensures our fleet is always up-to-date with the latest technology and efficiency standards. It’s not just a business decision; it’s a commitment to sustainability and providing the best for our clients.

Our approach to maintenance and renewal is more than a service feature; it’s a reflection of our dedication to the construction industry. We understand the importance of reliable, efficient equipment in ensuring project success and we’re committed to providing just that.
