“We said “yes” to Preston Hire because of the type of equipment they have which is unique to the building industry and I’m glad we did because there’s no one else who supplies the same equipment that I need to use. Preston Hire’s service is good. They are punctual, reliable and professional. We have a good relationship and I can be sure they’ll sort anything out. They supply as needed – it’s the reliability factor”
Mick Ryan, Project Manager, Becton, Victoria
“Preston Hire is able to meet our needs with prompt service. Being able to call them at short notice and have loading bays picked up or delivered within our desired time frame is great. We choose to use Preston Hire because they have a good product, always have stock available, and are experimenting with new concepts in loading bay design such as monorails and retractable decks. When recommending Preston Hire I’d say, use them! They are great!”
S. Brownbill, Manger, Construction Industry, Victoria
“Preston Hire truly are leaders in their field. With a recent project that required a large supply of propping. Preston Hire were the only company who were able to not only supply, but to deliver in short notice to Bendigo. The presentation of their props was the best I have ever seen and all their props were individually safety checked and clearly marked. The quality of their product is a definite reflection of their business. Their after service and follow up was also outstanding. I would definitely use and recommend Preston Hire again for any upcoming projects.”
Chris O’Meara – Walsh and O’Meara Builders, Bendigo, Victoria
“Preston Hire offer good products and their organisation and skills are very good. It’s very important to be prompt and reliable when delivering to sites and they always are. I have never had any issues in more than 15 years of doing business with them.
We use Preston Hire exclusively and extensively for loading bays. They always look well maintained. Some hire equipment is scary when it arrives but not Preston Hire’s equipment. It always looks well maintained and with OH&S being so important, trusting that equipment is well maintained is critical for us.
Preston Hire loading bays, or super decks as they are also known, are excellent. They lend themselves to a variety of uses for engineering solutions because are manoeuvrable and save time on installation. When it comes to working on site, time is money and the bottom line is that super decks save us a huge amount of time.”
Stuart Loft, Site Foreman, Built, South Melbourne, 3205
“Safety is No. 1 for us and we know it is for Preston Hire too. As the site manager, I have to know that I can count on their expertise to tell me the equipment we hire is right for the job. Both the services and equipment provided by Preston Hire is good. We need to have an honest responsive service and not be stuffed around and Preston makes sure we’re all good.
Their responsiveness saves us time and money because it minimises down time.
The equipment they supply is always the right fit for the job which means we don’t waste time trying to work with something that won’t do the job as effectively as we need it to. For me, the big thing is their honesty and the fact that they get stuff to me when I need it desperately. From my experience, their performance is impressive – like when I needed a drop down kit for a loading bay seven months ago. One of my contractors damaged the kit and within two hours Preston Hire had a replacement to us.
Accidental damage on site is something that can happen and if we damage anything accidentally Preston Hire is a phone call away. That’s a really important aspect for us and I can’t stress it enough. We can’t have anything dodgy. I need to know I have the right product because it can be a life and death situation. We need the right back propping and the right engineering and that’s what we get with Preston Hire. As far as safety and performance is concerned, I believe Preston Hire provide an excellent return on investment.”
Murray O’Donnell, Site Manager, Brookfield Multiple Constructions, Parkville Neuroscience Project, VIC, 3053
“Super decks by Preston Hire offer a reliable, prompt, proven and guaranteed system. Super decks minimise façade ‘scar’ zones therefore having the ability to accelerate façade cladding infills and internal finishing elements within the building process. That provides an extensive saving on time and cost, both of which have a major impact on our ability to deliver and meet our client’s needs and expectations. Preston Hire’s products and services are reliable and a valued asset to our organisation.”
Cameron Demoy, Site Manager, Probuild Constructions (Aust) Pty Ltd, South Melbourne, 3205
“We’re glad we use Preston Hire because we use a lot of platforms. Their products are well maintained and I’d score them a 9/10 for their service, products and performance – no one can be perfect! I would recommend them on supply, quality and price.”
Andrew Head, Site Manager, Abigroup, Victoria
“We choose Preston Hire because of our relationship with them, their reliability and good service. I like their services products and performance because they work efficiently which is essential for me and I’d say to others to “just use them.”
Stuart Loft, Site Manager, Hamilton Marino, Victoria
“I’ve used Preston Hire for years and to be honest, I’ve never had a problem. They are 100% reliable and in my line of work, that’s indispensible. I can ring them at the last minute and they’re there. We use their loading bays as they are the best product of this type without a doubt. They are well maintained, simple and most importantly, safe.
I can’t fault Preston from an OH&S point of view. Their responsiveness and range of products allows us the flexibility we need for large commercial projects. While it is difficult to quantify in terms of actual money saved, Preston’s professionalism, without a doubt, provides a significant return on our investment”.
Ben Lumb, Site Foreman, Probuild, South Melbourne, VIC 3205
“Preston Hire’s services are professional, prompt and customer orientated and we choose them as our suppliers because of the confidence we have in their products.
Using Preston Hire super decks save us significant time and substantially reduce the chances of injury because they roll out and they are retractable. We don’t have to move or stagger equipment – we can just retract and roll. These are two important considerations in planning and while difficult to put a dollar value on it, saving time and injury prevention are critical considerations in the building industry. Our company is committed to ensuring the best possible outcomes for our clients and as such, we hand pick our suppliers and Preston Hire services meet our requirements.”
