Tool and equipment hire and services provider Speedy, has invested over £3.2 million in new kit to support the launch of a UK-wide, four-hour delivery commitment to provide customers across Britain with faster access to construction kit.

This investment includes a mix of access, tools, concreting, lighting and generators selected from customers’ most popular products.  

Contractors will be able to use the new service - the first of its kind in the UK – to hire the company’s most popular products from its 200 depots across England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland. And follows on from a successful 12 month trial period in London.

Speedy became the first hire firm to promise same-day delivery in May 2018 with the introduction of its Capital Commitment initiative.

Customers can access the four-hour service when ordering products through the Speedy app, online or over the phone.

Russel Down, Chief Executive at Speedy, said: “Expanding our four-hour delivery promise across Britain represents a major step forward for the hire industry and epitomises our commitment to providing customers from all corners of the UK with the fast and reliable service they need to deliver projects on time.

“Customer expectations are shifting as the Amazon effect normalises same-day delivery and we’re proud to be pushing the boundaries of how products can be hired across construction. Delays caused by not having the right tools and equipment on site can have a significant impact on productivity, making quick access vital.”
