Plant hire, also popularly known as equipment rental, is a great way to get tools for carrying out certain large business tasks and operations, without necessarily having to buy those expensive workplace machineries. Every single item that a business might require in its day-to-day operations is provided for rent by various plant hire companies. This eliminates the need for invest a huge chunk of money for purchasing an expensive construction equipment. Professional plant hire companies have myriads of options related to machineries as well as supplementary tools that a business might need on a regular basis. Some of the main types of equipment that are available with the plant hire companies are discussed in detail below:
Also known as diggers, excavators are used for digging trenches, holes; and can also perform several earthmoving tasks quite easily. The excavators use a bucket for digging, and a beam to unload the soil, dug out from the trench, to some other place. The plant hire companies provide excavators that come with different types of buckets, as far as the shapes and sizes are concerned.
Bulldozers are those heavy duty earthmoving machineries used mostly in a construction industry. These heavy-duty trucks come with an attachment, known as the deep ripper, which can easily clear a large ground area. A bulldozer carries out tasks quite quickly and efficiently, especially when compared to manual methods of clearing up a land area.
There are certain equipment rental companies that offer cranes for hire only for large scale construction work. These machineries help transfer bulky goods to higher stories, quite easily. These cranes are usually very costly and, thus, getting them on rent is the best possible solution.
A cherry picker provides an easy, safe and efficient substitute for accessing areas that cannot be easily accessed by a human, even with the help of a ladder. This machine may not require frequent us so buying a cherry picker may not necessarily be a wise investment for many businesses.
Hiring plant equipment is considered to be one of the most practical things a business can do, especially amidst huge industry competition and the rising costs. Investing thousands of pounds in a construction plant is not always necessary, especially when the requirement is only for a temporary period. It proves to be one of the most cost-effective medium for saving on heavy project costs. At Morgan’s Plant Hire we believe hiring plant is the right choice, for more information on our range of vehicles get in touch today on 01844 273 874 and a member of our team will be happy to advise.

The recent economic climate has hit a lot of businesses hard and the construction industry is certainly feeling the strain. Of course, that means that small construction companies have to make the most of every opportunity that comes along in order to progress.
Don’t Let a Lack of Equipment Hold You Back
Unfortunately, a common problem is that an opportunity presents itself but your company doesn’t have the equipment necessary to complete the project. That doesn’t necessarily mean that you’ll have to give up the job, however, as Morgan’s Plant Hire have a huge range of equipment available to hire.
With equipment available to hire you will have access to the necessary equipment to complete your latest project and reap the financial rewards.
Is It Better to Buy Or Hire?
There is always a dilemma when such a problem arises, should you buy the equipment that you need for the project or hire it?
The question that you need to ask yourself is whether the piece of equipment that you require will be beneficial to you in the future and whether you will see a return on investment. Will having this piece of equipment open more doors for your business or will this project be a one off?
Unfortunately, due to the financial crisis, buying a piece of equipment simply isn’t an option and there’s never a guarantee that you’ll see an ROI if you were to buy; subsequently, a lot of construction companies are now choosing to protect their finances by hiring equipment instead.
If you would like more information about our service or the equipment that’s available to you, please visit our website or contact us directly to speak to a member of our experienced team.Posted in Latest News | Tagged Morgan's Plant Hire |

If you are planning a construction job then you want to know that you are using the most up to date equipment. Regularly updating your own fleet of dumpers, diggers, breakers and rollers can be extremely expensive, so your plant machinery is likely to be several years old before you start to think about replacing it.
Here at Morgan’s Plant Hire we are in a position to keep our fleet a little more up to date so that you can always be sure of the latest equipment to help you complete any job to the highest possible standard. We recently invested in a major refresh of our Hitachi and Kubota excavators, replacing a third of our fleet with vehicles ranging from 1 ton to 13.5 tons. So there’s never been a better time to hire from us.
We are an independent company that has been providing machines to large businesses and individual clients for over 25 years. Hiring plant can be an effective way for businesses to keep short term costs down whilst ensuring that you have everything you need to never turn a prospective customer away. If you simply want to carry out a one-off DIY project but you aren’t qualified to drive heavy machinery, we can also provide a trained operator to assist you.
If you need to hire any kind of plant in Buckinghamshire, Oxfordshire, Wiltshire or the surrounding areas then look no further than Morgan’s. To find out more about our new excavators, call us today on 01844 237874 and Chris will explain about our additional immobiliser/tracker options.Posted in Latest News | Tagged Morgan's Plant Hire |

Anyone running a business will want to be as financially savvy as possible and business owners in the construction sector are no different in this regard. When it comes to construction and building equipment, a business needs to decide whether hiring or buying plant machinery is the better option financially.
Buying machinery outright can be advantageous in that a business owns the machinery outright and has more flexibility in how it deploys it on particular construction sites. The machinery can be bought using a leasing arrangement, so the cost is spread out over a longer period, easing the financial burden on the business in question.
Nonetheless, sometimes hiring construction and building equipment is the better option from a financial perspective. This is where we at Morgans Plant Hire can help. We are specialists of digger hire in Oxford, with 25 years’ experience in the industry, serving Oxfordshire, Buckinghamshire and the surrounding area.
We understand that hiring construction equipment means a lower monthly cost and the added benefit of being able to offset hiring costs against taxes. If a business needs to update its hired equipment, it is relatively easy to do so. If hired machinery becomes faulty, it’s easily replaced or repaired and valuable capital is not used up carrying out repairs. If a business needs a particular type of equipment for only a short duration, at Morgans Plant Hire we believe that hiring is the sensible option.
For reliable digger hire in Oxford we, at Morgans Plant Hire, provide an efficient service.
Other equipment available to hire from us includes excavators, wheeled and tracked dumpers, telehandlers and skiploaders. We deliver machinery to customers non-operated, but if customers provide sufficient notice, we can make arrangements to have an operator on site. Contacting us could not be any easier, with the contact form on our website. For customer convenience, the website also includes account application forms and a list of hire terms and conditions to download.

We have also made it easier for you to decide which dumper will be the best for you as we have stated the height and width of the dumpers as well as how much they can carry, so if access to your site is limited make sure you choose a dumper that you’ll be able to easily manoeuvre in ad around your site.
Important Things to Note:
- The rates shown our website are for non-operated dumpers and there will be an additional cost for any fuel you need as well as transport of the vehicles to and from the site.
- The rates are based on you using the dumper for a maximum of 8 hours a day and 40 hours a week.
Why Dumpers Are Great in this Time of Year:
- This winter we are sure to have to endure, blustery winds, constant downpours as well as several dumping’s of snow, and it’s this sort of weather that other machines and vehicles will often fail in – but not Tracked dumpers.
