Plant hire (without operator)

Plant hire (without operator)

Framework 536
Status: Active

This framework offers a quick, simple and competitive route for the hire of various types of plant without operator.

This ESPO framework provides a quick, simple and competitive route to the hire of a wide range of plant (without operator). This includes materials handlers, excavators, kerb lifters, dumpers, skip loaders, rollers, pumps, compactors, compressors, breakers and various other related items. It is not intended to include the outright purchase of plant. All of the suppliers on this framework have been selected for their experience and ability to provide customers with the aforementioned types of plant. The framework is intended to meet the diverse requirements of local authorities and other eligible organisations that operate such plant. The call-off options of either direct award or further competition (if necessary) are available.

The framework is available for use nationally by any public sector body in the UK including, but not limited to…

  • Schools & Academies
  • Local Authority Establishments
  • Police & Emergency Services
  • NHS & HSC Bodies
  • Central Government Departments & their agencies
