Contract Hire

Simple, Powerful Performance with Added Flexibility

Contract Hire is a popular method of acquiring the use of assets without the need for substantial capital outlay. For a single monthly payment which covers financing, maintenance and repair, you can outsource the management of your fleet to the experts at Rushlift. Contracts vary in length but are typically for five years. 

Rushlift’s approach to the contract hire of materials handling and other equipment is unique in the industry. As a company that is not reliant on one manufacturer to source its equipment, Rushlift is able to advise you on the most suitable and cost effective equipment for your application.

Rushlift’s contract hire customers have access to our unique web-based Fleet Management System (FMS), allowing you to monitor performance and utilisation along with the ability to report breakdowns 24/7. FMS can provide customers with bespoke Key Performance Indicators and give access to your financial account details; as well as the ability to log accounts queries. Find out more about the Rushlift FMS system here.

Coupled with Rushlift’s approach to Account and Fleet Management, contract hire provides a very cost-effective outsourced solution for industrial equipment.

This was the biggest ground handling change that has taken place anywhere in the sector - in one of the most complex airport operating environments - which is a testament to the work carried out by everyone to deliver a seamless transition.
