The rental desk has opened at UTF's Takeley branch, offering customers the option to rent tools and equipment as well as book technical and safety training with HSS.

"We've got a nationwide network of branches and supercentres and as we look to maintain and grow our presence, concessions like this partnership with UTF add yet another channel for customers to hire from HSS".
UTF director, Carol McLaughlin, said; "We are delighted to expand our business into Hire Service. HSS Hire was the obvious partner for us, with their huge breadth of fleet equipment, national branch network and impressive safety record".
