About Rhino Plant Hire

Plant Hire and Repair Services Company based in Doddinghurst, Brentwood, Essex
At Rhinos Plant Hire we provide a second-to-none service to the building and construction industry, supplying a bespoke range of high-quality, reliable plant tools and equipment for builders, contractors, and tradesmen throughout the Essex and London areas.

Heavy & Small Plant Hire Specialists in London & Essex
Since 2002, Rhinos Plant Hire have been offering a wide range of heavy and small plant machinery, tools and equipment for a hire. We cater to professionals within the construction industry, such as builders, contractors and tradesmen, in and around London and Essex. We are also the ‘go-to’ place for many DIY enthusiasts, when a project requires that elusive tool fast.

We offer the latest mini excavators, dumpers, skidsteers, telehandlers, bowsers and rollers from names like Kubota, Thwaites, Manitou, Bomag and CAT. Attachments are available for these machines, including grapples, breakers, augers and grabs for an even more versatile hire experience. Our stock is regularly replaced with newer versions, and maintained by our own expert team of qualified mechanics.

Versatile Range of High Quality Machinery, Tools & Equipment
Demolition specialists, civil engineers and construction companies regularly hire our high-quality range, whatever size of project they are working on. Whether it’s a large piece of machinery for a new-build development or a mini digger for a bit of weekend landscaping, you’ll find it here.

The plant we stock is not only functional, but is designed for ease of handling and operator comfort. State-of-the-art coded key security is also a feature, avoiding the chance of inconvenience due to theft or meddling. Hire rates at Rhinos are customer friendly, and our fleet vehicles are economical to run, and incorporate the latest emissions technology. We are on hand with friendly advice and guidance on using our plant machinery, too, and always endeavour to give a tailored hire solution.

We offer a wide range of bowsers for the safe transportation and storage of various liquids. At Rhinos, we’re experienced in helping customers find the bowsers they need. This starts with our extended fleet, which has plenty of choice. Our site tow bowser, for example, comes with a range of capacity options including 500 litres or 1,100 litres. We’ve also got site tow bowsers with other specifications, too. And when it comes to accessories, our offer is second to none: from pumps to fuel delivery extension hoses, there are all sorts of useful add-ons we can provide.

Our dumper range is from 1-9 tonnes. We stock various models, including front tipping, side tipping, and high discharge dumpers. At Rhinos we know that dumpers are some of the most important items to have on a construction site: they’re versatile, and are pretty essential when it comes to shifting materials from one place to the next. Most of our dumpers come from market leading brand Thwaites. Thwaites has plenty of experience in the plant-manufacturing sector. It was founded in 1937, and has since become a well-known and reputable brand.

Mini Excavators/Mini Diggers
Mini Excavators are ideal for smaller building sites and domestic use such as landscaping and grounds maintenance. All Rhinos excavators are supplied with buckets; however, optional attachments are also available, as needed. We’ve got a whole host of items to choose from here. With sizes beginning at 0.8 tonnes and going all the way up to 8 tonnes, we’ll have the mini digger or mini excavator that’s right for you. And with a variety of widths, heights and digging depths also available, we’ll be able to pair you with the perfect plant.

Vibrating and non-vibrating rollers and compactors, suited for numerous sites and terrains. At Rhinos we know that it’s important for our customers to have a full range of choice at their fingertips when selecting which variety of roller they need. And for that reason, we also offer slightly different models, too, such as trench compactors.

Skidsteers & Bobcats
These skidsteers are ideal for applications including demolition, clearing, sweeping, and loading. A familiar ‘tool’ of the construction trade, skidsteers come in useful for all sorts of construction site jobs, but especially those which involve demolishing constructions or buildings, as well as clearing away debris, sweeping it up and more. Our skidsteers all have their own advantages. Some, for example, have a tight turning radius, while others come with short wheel bases. Each skidsteer in our range has its own set of width, weight and height statistics, too, so you can pick one with a specification relevant to your own needs.

Here at Rhinos our telehandlers are the best of the bunch – and we design our fleet with your needs in mind. First off, we make sure we stock telehandlers with a good range of sizes. Our smallest telehandlers, which measure five metres, are handy for those who need to complete a more compact task. For those who need a more intensive telehandling experience, our 18-metre options could be handy.

- Rhinos Plant Hire attended the Essex Young Farmers Show in May

- A Kubota mini digger was exhibited by the company on the day, and was used for fun events

A leading independent plant hire company in South East England enjoyed a day at one of the region’s premier farming shows recently.

Rhinos Plant Hire, which rents out heavy and small plant to customers across Essex and beyond, visited the Essex Young Farmers Show at Boyton Hall close to Chelmsford.

The event, which took place on Sunday 19th May, was a great success.

About the event

The Essex Young Farmers Show is designed to be a family-friendly event and a traditional agricultural show all in one.

In addition to trade stands from firms such as Rhinos Plant Hire, the event also contained an equine area, a livestock tent and a food hall for sampling and purchasing locally produced items.

Children under the age of 15 were able to attend for free, and there were also refreshment options – such as a bar run by the Young Farmers group – available.

Rhinos’ presence

The team at Rhinos Plant Hire were proud to participate in this event, which saw well over 15,000 people in attendance.

Rhinos took one of its Kubota mini-diggers to the family-oriented event, and attendees participated in a “digger challenge”.

The company organised the challenge as part of a structured day of activities in a dedicated area of the event site.

The challenge, which was monitored and operated in a safe environment, saw attendees attempt to use the digger to stack a group of tyres on top of each other without them falling down.

This year marked the first time that Rhinos Plant Hire attended the event, which took place at the agricultural estate in Roxwell, a village outside of Chelmsford.

Steven Shelford, Managing Director at Rhinos Plant Hire, said: “We were very pleased to participate in this event, which is rightly a fixture of the young farming calendar in Essex.”

“At Rhinos we cater to professionals in all sorts of sectors, including agriculture. It was a real pleasure for our team to meet so many people of all ages at this event, and for our team to talk to them about our heavy plant and what it can achieve.”

“As a business rooted in the Essex community, we are happy to participate in events like this and to get the word out there about our services.”
