Smiths Hire Invest £130,000 in a New DAF 26t Customised Wagon for their Leeds Depot

Due to the ongoing growth of their Leeds depot, Smiths Hire have invested in a new ‘state of the art’ delivery wagon which has been customised to their own design by Sterling.

The new wagon will be delivered into the Leeds depot this week and be able to handle local site deliveries of the larger equipment in particular Powered Access Machines and Plant.

Thomas Smith – Joint Managing Director said “Our Leeds depot opened only some 7 months ago at Overland Park, Gelderd Road and is going from strength to strength. This growth has been achieved by delivering first class customer service driven by quality equipment and tools. He went on to say… “Customers are enjoying the benefits of quality new equipment and working with an experienced and knowledgeable local team who really do go that extra mile and its showing on the numbers hence the addition of the new wagon to their fleet”.

The investment is all part of Smiths Hires ongoing strategy to grow the business and improve the quality of the fleet across all of its 11 other regional Hire It Centres. Customer service is at the heart of everything they do and this was recently acknowledged on a national level when they won the HAE Plant, Tool and Equipment Hire Company of the Year award for 2018.

Andy Bishop – Smiths Hire Leeds Manager said – “It’s great to see all our hard work recognised with the purchase of this new wagon. My team can now literally go that extra mile and deliver what our clients need when they need it to site across the whole of the Yorkshire region to help when you need us the most”.
