Our hire fleet 20 years ago!

Our hire fleet 20 years ago!

We mentioned in our last newsletter that we were having an overhaul on our hire fleet and we’re pleased to announce this has now been completed.

David Goodchild is your hire contact so you can either contact him via our switchboard or directly via email to: davidgoodchild@tvcalx.co.uk. He will be more than happy to discuss your requirements with you and find the perfect equipment for your job. Remember, if we don’t stock it, we can always find it for you, no matter how obscure!

There are a number of reasons which could make hiring equipment the right choice for your company. You don’t have to buy expensive equipment which will be subject to depreciation. You don’t have to store it; when you’re done, you simply return it and as long as the equipment is returned in the same condition, there are no repairs or maintenance involved. If something goes wrong with an item, you may be outside of the warranty period and the manufacturer may not be able to do anything to rectify any faults or if it is within its cover , you may have to go through a lengthy warranty-repair process; we can walk you through any troubleshooting issues or simply swap out a faulty item which can minimise your on-site downtime. Hiring enables you to have the minimal equipment needed for a job and provides flexibility should there be a shift in your client demands; this can be a game-changer for smaller companies, giving them access to the latest technology without the purchase price tag and enabling them to cope with market ups and downs. Of course, if you’re thinking of buying a certain type of kit, it can also allow you to try before you buy!

As you can see from these photos, there has been a rather dramatic change in our hire equipment over the years! The first photograph, taken at our very first premises 20 years ago features some interesting items that you probably haven’t seen for a while. Then take a look at what we can offer you now – slight difference isn’t there? We’ve now made more of our in-house equipment available, especially our ever popular ALXII RS units and gas flow measurement equipment such as the GFM2, NFM2 and GPM unit. In addition to these, we have a vast array of NDT equipment; Ultrasonic Flaw Detectors, Ultrasonic Thickness Meters, Subsea Ultrasonic Equipment, Subsea MPI Equipment, Amp Clamps, Digital Thermometers, Boiler Tube Inspection (Dinsearch 1.00) units and Lighting Column Inspection (ColcheK) units. All our equipment is available for long or short term hire.
