Buckhurst Plant Hire was established in 1993 by the Walsh Family. From beginning in a small yard with only a handful of machines the company has grown in size to now operating from four depots with over 1000 pieces of machinery and plant.

During this time Buckhurst has developed a reputation for supplying quality plant equipment at competitive prices. The high levels of customer service for which the company is known underpin this growth and have ensured that many loyal customers have relied on Buckhurst for their equipment for a many years.

As a company we work four brand values, these are: Reliability, Trust, Outstanding Service and Local to You. These values are what makes our company provide excellent, reliable customer service.


At Buckhurst, we hire a vast range of equipment through our three main company divisions; plant hire, utility plant hire, specialist plant and transport. We have invested over 10 million pounds this year alone in new equipment to ensure our customers are able to hire the very latest equipment from the leading manufacturers we know they can rely on.

At Buckhurst, we have developed an award-winning ‘Customer First Culture’. Our customers range from some of the most high profile construction companies in the UK to our many local and DIY customers.

We aim to be not merely a supplier of hired equipment with associated maintenance and call out cover, but as a partner actively contributing to the effectiveness of our customers’ business needs.

We put our customers’ needs first in everything, from concept and planning through to delivery and post-contract, and can offer a host of benefits such as a state-of-the-art extranet facility giving customers on-line real-time account tracking.

We have a national account management function and can offer preferred or sole supplier agreements, whereby customers can reduce their equipment supplier bases with bespoke deals that provide peace of mind and significant savings in time and money. We invest heavily in new equipment, selecting only brand leaders as suppliers, building long-term relationships with them to ensure we offer the very latest and high quality equipment.

Buckhurst Plant Hire offers operated and self-drive plant, depending on your needs. All our operators are fully qualified and are reliable, trustworthy and competent.
