Speedy has significantly enhanced its four-hour delivery commitment to provide thousands of customers across the UK and Ireland with faster access to hire equipment. 

Customers will now be able to use the service, the only one of its kind in the UK and Ireland, to hire from our range of over 350 most popular products for delivery nationwide within four hours. If we fail to meet the delivery promise customers receive a weeks free hire on the product. The service has been relaunched with a wider product offering after it was paused in March to focus on supporting the NHS throughout the initial stages of the Covid-19 pandemic.

Expanding the service, which originally provided a same day delivery promise for 52 of its top tool and equipment products, will meet the changing demands from customers and provide a much enhanced offering as output in the economy recovers.  

Access and lifting products, compressors, generators, hand tools, survey and lighting equipment have been added to the service, which includes zero and low-emission lighting towers to help customers reduce carbon emissions and cut fuel costs. 

Speedy became the first hire firm to promise same-day delivery on products hired before 3pm or receive one weeks free hire in May 2018 with the launch of our Capital Commitment initiative. This was enhanced to the four hour delivery promise in January 2020, and can now be accessed from our network of 200 depots across England, Wales, Scotland and parts of Northern and Southern Ireland*.

Russell Down, Chief Executive at Speedy, said: “We’ve seen demand for our products and services grow since sites re-opened following lockdown, and the new project pipeline is continuing to build.  

“Before the Covid-19 pandemic, thousands of our customers across the UK relied on our four-hour delivery promise to ensure they could keep projects on track. Now more than ever, product delivery and collection are critical capabilities that the industry needs in its supply chain, as projects demand tools and equipment quickly and at short notice. 

“We look forward to providing our customers with this new expanded fast and reliable service as work volumes increase.”
