About Buckhurst

Buckhurst Plant Hire was established in 1993 by the Walsh family. From our humble beginnings in a small yard with only a handful of machines as our offering the company has grown phenomenally in size since then. Buckhurst, with an annual turnover of £13milion, is now operating from several depots across the UK and Scotland with over 2000 pieces of machinery and plant.

Buckhurst now employs over 100 dedicated people across our depot and field-based roles, whilst working hard to retain that small business family feel from the early 90’s.

During this time Buckhurst has developed a strong reputation in the industry for supplying quality plant equipment at very competitive prices. We are distinguished by our outstanding levels of customer service and this has underpinned our growth as well as ensuring a loyal customer base who have relied on Buckhurst for their equipment time and time again.

The company has established itself by working to four brand values, these are: Reliability, Trust, Outstanding Service and Local to You.

Our Mission Statement is to be the customers’ first choice for rental equipment – delivering a top level of service wherever and whenever required through a working culture and environment that allows our staff to develop and make decisions. In doing so they will share in the growth and prosperity of our business.

What’s it like to work for us you ask?

We are a very down to earth and fun bunch at Buckhurst and every depot has its own personality and culture.

Everyone has an important role to play within this family run business, whereby you’re not just a number and you’re expected to role your sleeves up and “muck in” so to speak, so you may need a pair of wellies in our plant yards!

We don’t take ourselves too seriously, so amongst the hard work we have a lot of banter, staff socials and celebrations etc.
