Contractors working at events are among Enable Hire’s most frequent customers. So while we understand that no two events are ever exactly the same, we are very familiar with all the typical requirements for plant, tool and welfare hire.

It doesn’t matter if your event is a graduation ceremony for 1,000 or a huge festival drawing 100,000 – or whether you’re the contractor setting it all up, or the security firm tasked with keeping everyone safe and secure: we can provide everything you need to make it run smoothly.

Need easy access? Come to us for scissor lifts and cherry pickers. Keen to keep the site secure? We can supply a call centre-connected CCTV tower. Power tools to help the crews working on the ground? From cordless drills to hedge cutters, we have it covered.

Where utilities are an issue, we can supply water bowsers and portable toilets. And, of course, no event can run without electricity: we offer generators in a range of sizes, as well as our Solar Pod hybrid power generator – an eco-friendly solution that also cuts down on noise and fuel consumption.

There are plenty of low-carbon options when it comes to welfare vans and units, too – in fact, we are acknowledged experts in environmentally friendly welfare. Every Enable Hire welfare unit provides a refuge away from the crowds ­– a safe place compliant with all current legislation, where your workers can recharge their own batteries, while our solar-panel equipped vans and units top up theirs. For the ultimate eco solution, there’s our quiet-running, hydrogen-powered ZERO CO2 welfare trailer. Welfare vans are great for smaller and shorter events, especially when access is tricky. For bigger and longer events, our welfare units can be used single-storey, or stacked to maximise capacity. Full site set-up, as well as cleaning, emptying and servicing are all available.

At Enable Hire, we aim to keep rentals simple, helping you run an event that is successful, enjoyable and, well, uneventful!




Here are the answers to the questions that our customers most often ask.

  • All equipment is 110V maximum.

  • Yes. Depending on the location, we will either use our own vacuum tanker to service sewage waste and water for our welfare units, or we will arrange for the servicing to be done by one of our partners.
