The Data

17 March 2008

We have obtained information from publicly available sources, from the companies themselves, and from official registries. We have made some estimates and also used the incomparable access industry grapevines and rumour mills.

Often information from official government registries is older than that which is reported quarterly to the various stock markets, so some of the information in the averages is a blend of dates, including varying year ends.

It is important to note that the figures for the bigger companies are for their entire business, not just access equipment. In addition, some of this data includes sales of equipment and not just equipment rentals (for example, H&E Equipment). It is extremely difficult to obtain detailed financials for just the access rental component of a rental business, even where access is run as a separate division.
