Generator Hire

Delivering Temporary & Emergency Power

Compact and portable power generators are ideal for powering small tools and machinery on-site when the work zone is remote or isolated, and access to grid power is not possible. Larger road tow and static generators are also suitable for equipment, but they are also powerful enough to run lights, heaters, and welfare units, allowing you to ensure your site is equipped with all the amenities required to provide a healthy and comfortable environment for workers. 

We have a selection of diesel, petrol, and solar hybrid units available, covering a range of sizes and power outputs. All equipment is suitable as the primary power source on construction sites, festivals, and events, and they are also ideal for auxiliary or temporary use during outages or in an emergency.

  • Power: Look at the wattage you need or the type and number of tools and appliances you plan to use. Then, calculate whether the generator you are looking at can handle the load.
  • Generator Overload: Take care not to overload the generator. You can do this if you run too many powerful tools or pieces of equipment at once.
  • Fuel Supply: Ensure that you have enough of the necessary type of fuel to hand, so you can keep your generator running when needed, for as long as you need. You may need a fuel tank to store adequate fuel reserves.
  • Location: Please note that as some units feature combustion engines, you can only use them outdoors and in well-ventilated spaces. Place your generator on-site in an accessible area, where you can get to it when needed. It also needs to be close enough to the tools and equipment.
  • Lighting: Ensure there is suitable lighting or that you have a torch to hand so you can operate it in the dark.
  • Testing: Test your generator at a time when it is not needed, such as before the start of a job or before a power outage. This will allow you to become familiar with how to start and run the uni when needed.
  • Electric Start Charge: Some generators have an electric start function rather than a pull cord. If your equipment has an electric start, you must ensure that the start battery is kept charged up.
  • Prevent Large Periods of Inactivity: Fire up your equipment occasionally, even when it is not required. This will help to keep the engine running smoothly, like with a car.

From 1st April 2022, our suppliers will only fuel machines with white diesel. This is due to new government guidelines.

If you, as the hirer, refuel any equipment while it is in your possession, it must be with WHITE DIESEL.

YOU MUST NOT USE RED DIESEL IN HIRED MACHINES OR EQUIPMENT.

If you return a machine refuelled with rebated diesel, suppliers will have to remove and dispose of the fuel. They must also flush the tank and supply lines before they can refuel them. The process is chargeable, with no exceptions.

An insurance charge will be calculated at checkout. If you have proof of your own Hired-In Plant Insurance (HIPI) and wish to opt out of the insurance charge, you can do so by booking via Live Chat.
