Speedy, the equipment rental and support services business has proved true to its name by getting a fully operational temporary depot up and running just a month after a fire damaged its original Grantham site.

Determined Speedy employees set up a temporary office at the original site on the same day as the fire happened and calls were re-routed to the nearby Leicester depot to ensure there was no disruption in hire support for Speedy customers.

Members of the local business community stepped in to assist Speedy, for example their customer Grantham Estates helping them source a new temporary location just a mile away from the original site.

The original Grantham depot is expected to be open again by February next year and from the 17th October Speedy Grantham can be found at: 18C London Road Industrial Estate, Spring Gardens, Grantham, NG31 6JP.

Gary Lloyd, Regional Director at Speedy, said:

“I’m proud of the way our staff showed the ‘Speedy spirit’ after the fire at our depot. They acted quickly to ensure customers were unaffected and we could be back up and running as soon as possible. The only day we weren’t trading was the day of the fire itself.

“I would also like to give special thanks for the support given to us by our customers and other members of the Grantham Business community especially Colas and Grantham Estates.”
