A new partnership has been announced between HSS Hire Group and Kubota. Under the partnership, 200 new machines from Kubota will be available with next-day delivery within the Greater London area.

HSS Hire will supply kit with GPS tracker technology installed as standard, and with a four-hour breakdown response service 24/7.

John Gill, chief executive at HSS Hire, said: “Mini-excavators are really important items of equipment to all our customers and there is clear demand for this type of mini plant hire throughout London.”

Kubota will be providing specialist maintenance, coordination and troubleshooting under the agreement that will, subject to a successful trial in London, be rolled out nationally across HSS Hire’s network of over 300 locations.
