Following rapid expansion of their branch network, Kennards Hire now have the capacity to support customers in all sorts of locations, including remote parts of the nation.
According to Bill Whitehouse, National General Manager, Kennards Hire, with more than 90 locations, can mobilise equipment for work anywhere in Australia. It is not uncommon for us when longer-term projects are involved to purchase new equipment specifically for that job.
For example, a recent hire involved supplying a contractor, who was working on a building project in a remote area, with a new tele handler and two new 13.7m (45ft) knuckle booms. Kennards Hire also provided a tip truck and dozens of small equipment items, including concrete vibrators, trowels, safety harnesses and chain blocks.
The access machines were manufactured by JLG, which means they are serviced on site by their technicians every three months, regardless of where they are located. With three branches in Far North Queensland, at Townsville, Mackay and Cairns, they are well positioned to support projects in places as far from the coast as Mount Isa or Birdsville. They can also reach into remote parts of South Australia, Western Australia and other states. Kennards had huge quantities of products across their branch network, thus their equipment could be gathered together at short notice.
