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. Monthly payments are allowable as an operating expense, making contract hire a very tax-efficient method of operation, as well as improving your company’s cash flow.

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.

We have been with Rushlift for about six years – a long-standing relationship, where the trucks and the service & maintenance have always been good.
