Advice on Site


Our advice is usually free and if its not – then we will tell you in advance. We are happy to discuss a current or future project with you and  do our best to give you sound advice about  equipment you need to complete the job or project you propose.

If we don’t think you are capable or qualified to use the equipment we will do our best to guide you in finding somebody who may help. If we don’t have the equipment you need from our own hire fleet, our experienced staff will usually know who has.

We DO NOT recommend specific trades people or contractors but we will try to give you several contacts or even a list for you to contact.

If we do specific site surveys for lifting contracts or container deliveries, we charge £25 plus VAT.


All our equipment comes with a safety instruction leaflet. This will give you advice you MUST FOLLOW to ensure your safety. Many of the equipment listings on this site have links to manufacturers operating instructions and Fosseway Hire are frequently adding new demonstration Videos to the site – all of which can be found on our YouTube channel.

All our staff offer a demonstration on equipment use when you collect or upon delivery. Our staff can only advise you about a specific job if they have been told, by you, of the specific application.

Our staff are also instructed to refuse a hire and return equipment without a refund if they consider that a customer would be unable to operate the equipment safely and responsibly.

Our first and foremost concern is the safety of our customers and staff and those bystanders who may be where the equipment is operating. Please feel free to ask any questions or to ask for a call back by e mailing:
