Civil Engineering


At Enable Hire, we’re well aware of the huge variety of civils projects our customers are involved in and we have wide experience of supporting them. It’s because we understand just how much work you have to put in to see complex projects through to completion that we aim to keep things simple when it comes to tool and plant hire.

We have immaculately maintained plant of all sizes, from the humble push roller through to large excavators and cherry pickers, supplied with or without an operator, as required. Our tool range is enormous, too: whether it’s lighting, safety equipment or power tools (or pumps, or storage, or communication equipment…you get the picture!), we’ve got it covered. We have long experience in rail, so come to us when you need specialised rail equipment. And we’re also well-known for our expertise in providing welfare for your workers.

Sustainability and reducing carbon emissions are key concerns for many businesses delivering new infrastructure today, and naturally Enable Hire offers a number of low-carbon options in plant and tool hire. In fact, we’re acknowledged experts in eco-friendly welfare: not only can all our vans and trailers run on HVO biofuel as well as ordinary white diesel, but we offer a very extensive range of vehicles with solar-powered hybrid generators. For the ultimate, there’s even a state-of-the-art ZERO CO2 hydrogen-powered towable welfare unit.

So whether you’re working in a congested urban building site, a boggy field miles from anywhere, deep down underground or high among the skyscrapers, come to us for plant hire and welfare. Beavering away at a dam or landing a jumbo contract at the airport? You’ll find we have the perfect selection of specialised tools you need.
