Reflecting on the 2022 Hirebase Plant and Tool Hire Supplier event




In this week’s blog, Mobile Mini UK provides insight into this year’s prestigious Hirebase Plant and Tool Hire Supplier Exhibition and explain why this was an essential event after a challenging 24 months for the industry.

As long-term partners with Hirebase, we were delighted to be invited to exhibit with our very own event stand for the 2022 Hirebase Plant and Tool Hire Supplier Conference. With over 140 attendees and 20 suppliers, the annual event hosts a wide variety of exhibits from within the construction and manufacturing sector and is a fantastic opportunity for Mobile Mini to support Hirebase and the people who we have built our loyal long-standing relationship with.

Via the National Supply Level Agreement that’s been in place for many years, we have established a valuable long-term arrangement that’s seen an incredible 25% growth for us year-on-year from 2020 to 2021. The involvement and support between both companies is paramount and pivotal to the success of our ever-evolving national re-hire partnership, evidenced in the growth seen so far for 2022, which is continuing at the same astounding rate.

As one of the leading worldwide providers of portable accommodation and secure storage containers, we currently boast the biggest fleet of containers nationwide, including our industry leading 20ft storage containers that now make up 70% of the service hired by Hirebase. Building on the successes of last year, our partnership has continued to grow and flourish thanks to the efforts of our One Call Team (designated re-hire team) who provide a centralised contact centre for all national Hirebase enquiries, building a relationship with management that is evident to see and long may this partnership continue.

Simon Grace, Key Accounts Office Manager at Hirebase, commented “Mobile Mini is our first port of call for all site accommodation across the country due to the quality kit matched with a speedy service. The entire team are always willing to work with us to secure business for both parties in a very competitive market’’.

Mobile Mini’s Sunil Achtar, Commercial Sales & Marketing Manager, Chris Moon, Head of Re-Hire and James Patrick, Re-Hire Specialist Team Leader, were all in attendance of the event hosted at the British Motor Museum in Warwickshire, liaising with national Hirebase Managers and Senior Leaders and showcasing the benefits Mobile Mini continue to deliver to the highest standards.

Chris Moon, Head of Re-Hire at Mobile Mini, reflected on the event and said ‘’It was amazing to support this year’s Hirebase Supplier Exhibition once again. We’ve all witnessed a challenging past 24 months, where market conditions and customer/end-user buying patterns have been unpredictable to say the least. However, our robust trading relationship and re-hire partnership has remained strong and we’ve subsequently experienced a 25% increase on re-hire revenue over the last two years with Hirebase.

“Many thanks to Hirebase for their continued support and custom and we very much look forward to being involved in continuing to grow our involvement with the Hirebase group by supporting our joint sales drive with guaranteed lead times, competitive hire rates and excellent customer service.’’
