“We and all the staff would like to thank our customers for their loyal support over many years and commend Kennards Hire, also a family business, to you for their excellence in customer service and equipment. After many years of providing community and customer service through Hire It, the time has come to pursue some personal interests…”, Mike & Lesley Gaffney and Rodger Knights, Hire It Plant Hire.

With the merger comes an expanded range of equipment, familiar faces and some new faces to the team. Local customers’ transition from Hire It to Kennards Hire will be seamless, as all their accounts will be transferred to Kennards Hire.
