BSS Industrial launches Hire-It service at five new branches

Published:  12 August, 2013

Following an initial launch in 2012, BSS Industrial has opened a further five Hire-It trade counters in Liverpool, Brentford, Birmingham, Sheffield and Gloucester.

Hire-It, which is also available in selected branches of Travis Perkins, Keyline, and Wickes, has received fantastic feedback due to its tailored portfolio of brand new equipment, backed by the expertise and logistical support of the BSS team.

The latest five branches feature a number of new delivery vans which reduce emissions and incorporate a bespoke tail-lift to make deliveries more efficient, especially within big cities such as London, Birmingham and Liverpool.

BSS Industrial’s Hire-It network is now also supported by an extended range of tools stocked at its National Distribution Centre, providing access to additional products which are not stocked at branch level. Utilising its delivery fleet, BSS Industrial can then ensure that products are with customers by the next morning.

Frank Elkins, managing director of BSS Industrial, said: “Hire-It has been a real success and I’m thrilled that additional trade counters are now open across the country, with another five planned for the autumn.”

Supply chain director David Rose, added: “The current economic climate has made the hire market more attractive – tradesmen can reduce their expenditure on costly and bulky equipment while benefiting from fully health and safety approved tools that can be delivered to site. We’re looking forward to the continued progress of Hire-It throughout 2013 and beyond.”
