20+ Years Experience
Specialist Generator Hire
Generators are a vital part of many different industries, but that does not always make them something you can buy. Whether it is budget limitations or just for practical reasons, many companies (and individuals) have to rely on hired generators instead.
Fortunately, the generator hire market is an incredibly broad one – and we are one of the companies at the centre. If you are looking for generator hire options all across the UK, then we are one of the best places to get your generator options, no matter how large.
We are one of the UK’s most prominent generator hire companies in December 2023, offering a huge range of different generator types to clients from all industries. Our work is focused on offering a reliable supply of short-term generator hire options to clients, making sure that they can get the power they need for whatever project they are currently working on.
Our generator hire options are incredibly varied, and we approach each customer with a range of options that might suit their needs. Our team is made up of dedicated specialists with a lot of knowledge about generator designs and operation, giving us an edge over many other generator hire companies.
We aim for maximum quality in all of the generators we stock, maintaining them on a regular basis and making sure that they are ready to hire at a moment’s notice. Every hiring arrangement is unique, and we do our best to provide customers with whatever specific generator types or features they might need most.
We can offer nationwide generator hire options, providing generators to even the most remote locations in the UK. Whether we are working with trade customers or independent clients, we understand that equipment like this is incredibly valuable. Having an easy supply of these generators allows people in remote locations to benefit from them just as easily as anybody else.
We know what we are doing when it comes to generator hire. Unlike multi-purpose companies like Brandon Hire Station, all of our staff understand generators and have been trained on all relevant equipment, allowing us to advise new customers on the best generators for their needs.
We have served countless past clients, offering generator hire options to hundreds of sites all across the UK. Each one has walked away pleased with their generator hire compared to results from groups like Brandon Hire Station, whether that was a long-term main generator hire or just something very temporary for a single outdoor event.
We can provide generator options for all kinds of domestic purposes, allowing homeowners to keep their properties powered during emergencies or unexpected blackouts. Our generator options are suitable for all kinds of properties, and our services allow them to be delivered and set up with ease.
Commercial premises and businesses can also benefit from generator units. A generator provides reserve power, offers a way to power specific pieces of equipment in a standalone way, and ensures that you can keep everything running in remote locations.
We offer both diesel generators and petrol units in our range of generator hire options, along with some gas generators. This means that individual customers can choose whichever generator type is going to suit their needs, property or site the best.
Diesel generators are the more powerful option, offering a better power supply overall. However, they also use a diesel fuel supply, are heavier, and require more maintenance support on a regular basis.
They also tend to have longer lifespans than alternative options due to the way that they start up. This means that a diesel generator can provide power for longer before completely breaking down.
The fuel-efficiency means that fuel management is less of an issue and that fuel produces more power overall. However, this increased power generation and better durability also comes at the cost of being heavy, hard to move around, and difficult to work with
Petrol units are quiet and often quite compact, allowing them to be moved around quickly. They also do not always need as much maintenance and can produce a good amount of power per unit of fuel you are using.
This kind of generator is going to be slightly worse at overall power generation, but fuel management usually is not an issue outside of remote locations. They are also easy to move without having to be road-towable, and some can be pushed around by hand.
Gas generators are cheap, effective, and surprisingly efficient when it comes to power generation. However, it is also the least impressive of the three types, producing a fair amount of power per fuel unit but not really standing out as a main generator choice.
These can still be worth using, but they are often more of a support generator. Even so, in remote locations, sometimes this can be the best option.
Our silent generator hire options are a great way to get extra electrical energy without having to worry about the noise level. This can be important for cramped spaces or remote locations where you still live with other people.
We can help find you a main generator (or temporary option, if needed) that keeps the noise level down. Through this, you can support your own property or business without producing too much excess noise.
In emergencies, having a suitable generator can be invaluable. If your main source of power goes down, having a generator on standby allows you to support yourself until the power is restored.

Generator hire costs can vary quite rapidly, with prices changing depending on the kind of unit you use and the exact design you go for. There are quite a few factors that can influence how much a simple system costs.
Different fuel types cost different amounts. Petrol and diesel are priced differently, and in some areas, it may be more practical to choose petrol over diesel.
Since you can’t use petrol in diesel units or diesel in petrol units, you are stuck with either diesel or petrol in most cases. The longer you run the generator, the more petrol or diesel you will consume, meaning higher costs overall.
Some generators are more complex than others. A basic petrol or diesel generator may only cost a portion of the price of a more complex model, even if they use the same petrol and diesel fuel.
Higher prices do not always mean that you get something more reliable and efficient, but it usually does. This means that you need to choose a unit based on what you think is the best fit rather than the most popular generator model.
A larger generator takes more to deliver, and some units may require specialised equipment to be delivered along with them. Larger generators are usually going to cost more to deliver, so a smaller option can be far more practical.
This is especially true for remote locations, where not all roads and paths may be safe to travel with a heavy load. This could mean that your generator has to take an alternate path that extends the trip, costing even more money as a result.
You can sometimes reduce the cost of your generator by selling excess power back to the government.
This is not always a reliable option, but it can still be important for people who plan to use their generator to power a lot of equipment that may leave excess energy in limbo.
Some generators may cost more due to their emissions. However, this cost will not be in the generator price itself but the laws or rules behind using it. This depends entirely on local laws, so read up on any relevant legislation beforehand.
VAT applies to generator hire. Most of our service options include VAT, and the petrol or diesel you use requires VAT too.
We can talk you through the prices involved in your generator hire, showing you any generators that fall within your price range. This saves you from having to search through our generator offerings just to find one that suits your limits.
Our generator hire terms and duration are very flexible, allowing customers to get their generators for a varying amount of time, depending on their needs and goals.
Our experts are happy to discuss the specifics of your hire requirements with you, so get in touch with our office if you need to talk about options.
Long-term hire can be important for remote locations or areas that will be without power for quite a long time.
Having a backup generator on standby can also be an invaluable tactic in some situations. Hiring a generator just in case when you expect power issues can help you avoid unexpected blackouts.
Short-term hire is best for a single event, whether that is large events in open areas or smaller gatherings in remote locations.
Generators can be powerful tools to have, even in the short term. This might make them ideal for basic construction work or to assist in something that will only take a few days at most.
While other companies like Brandon Hire Station provide mixed unit options, we aim to stock as many variants as possible.
Canopied generators are ideal for any outdoor event, boasting a canopy that protects them from bad weather. This can be invaluable in remote locations without much shelter.
Containerised generators use special containers to reinforce them on all sides, providing even more protection.
This makes them incredibly reliable for events in remote locations, power generation during storms, or in any other situation where a conventional backup generator might fail.
Secure generators are locked down to prevent damage or tampering, which can be important if you worry about them being stolen. This is especially important for portable generators that you are using as an emergency backup.
Even generators installed in a proper area of flooring could be locked down to prevent vandalism. Basic security accessories can keep your equipment safe on-site.
Solar generators generate power from the sun, rather than from fuel like petrol or diesel. Naturally, this means that they do not require fuel costs and can be more reliable in remote locations where you need constant power.
However, they only work when it is sunny and enter standby when there is not any sunlight. Even with a storage battery, this can make your supply less than reliable in bad weather.
Battery storage units can retain a limited power supply, allowing you to power equipment even if you are not burning any fuel.
How reliable this is, depends on the battery itself. We offer a huge range of hire options, and that includes batteries as a standby or emergency power option.
Smaller generators can be important for getting a small supply of power when you need it most. Sometimes, a small range of reliable power generation is all you need.
We stock a range of generator accessories, many of which are practical accessories that offer some distinct benefits.
These could assist with power distribution, protect the generator from the weather during outdoor events, make them road-towable, make them more reliable, or even just streamline their operation.
Welder generators are specifically for power tools related to welding, allowing a welder to keep working even without a mains supply as long as they have a suitable fuel source.
Mobile generators that are road-towable can be important for people who plan to use them in multiple locations or who want to keep them attached to their vehicle alongside other equipment for easy relocation.
Skid-mounted diesel or petrol generators are partially modular, allowing them to be secured for transport easily without being towed. This allows you to transport the generator more directly without needing a tow-capable vehicle.
A truck-mounted diesel or petrol generator can be important equipment in many situations, offering mobile support on the back of a simple truck. This removes the need to take the generator off and lets you get a reliable power supply from the vehicle itself.
We can provide some specially prepared diesel or petrol generators that are ready for one specific purpose, such as powering broadcast equipment. Our experts understand the technical requirements you may have and can work with you to satisfy them.
Trailer-mounted diesel or petrol generators allow you to tow the generator while keeping it mounted safely to a trailer, preventing unintended damage.
Static diesel or petrol generators are simply any units that are not meant to be moved after delivery. Our services include us being able to arrive on-site and deploy a generator, collecting it only after the hire period ends.
We can account for all generator maintenance done on our products in stock and will be able to provide emergency maintenance if something goes wrong with a hired generator.
If you notice excessive emissions, issues with the generator no longer being reliable or another similar fault, contact our office. With such a wide range of generators, there is always a slim chance that something may be overlooked, and we will correct it immediately.
We can also handle diesel or petrol generator repairs if something goes wrong. We do our best to ensure that none of our hire generators is easily damaged, but if something does go wrong, we have a service in place to fix the problem.
The smallest generators cost around £500 to about £2,500, depending on the model. The most basic hire options can be surprisingly cheap, making them an affordable hire choice for small-scale needs.
For a typical home, you want a hire generator of around 3 KVA at a minimum, with 5 KVA being recommended. A business often requires a stronger generator due to having more appliances installed.
Events are much more varied. Some events may only need a 2 KVA hire. Others may need a much larger-scale hire, especially if a wide range of appliances are involved.
A 2.5 KVA unit can run small appliances, like those found in caravans or included in camping trips. They are not enough to run a house, but they can be a good hire choice for smaller events and getaways.
The cost to hire a 5 KVA unit can sometimes be as high as £30 per hire hour, if not more. However, we can help you search for the best affordable option for your needs.
3.5 kVA is good for powering many small appliances, as well as power tools and other individual items. However, they can’t power homes.
A small 2.5 KVA unit can have a fuel tank as tiny as almost 0.5L. Of course, this depends on the model – there is no specific way to answer this question.
A 10 KVA unit will use roughly 2.4L per hour at maximum speed, on average. Of course, this will drop if you load it with less fuel.
A generator can be used on a worksite, on a landscaping site, at events, at your home, at an outdoor sports site, or even within your own hobby site/area. There are almost no limits to how a generator hire can be used.
A hire like this still takes in VAT. VAT may not be listed, but the hire price still includes VAT – just like any other paid service involves VAT. However, there are ways to reduce or remove VAT from a hire like this.
The DIY Housebuilder’s Scheme and similar programs can sometimes eliminate VAT. The VAT you pay for the hire service is stripped away because that VAT is being paid for something that will power tools and equipment used for DIY.
We can deliver the perfect generator options for your needs every single time. Contact us if you want to know more about our hire options, the kind of generator hire that would suit your site, and so on.
