About Us

Established in March 2007, based in Fulbeck Lincs, the company grew rapidly from an initial order of 10 Bobcat excavators to what is now one of the largest small excavator hire companies in the east midlands with over 50 machines. Our smallest being 0.8T and our largest being 8T all rubber tracked, all piped for various attachments.


2008 saw Richmond Plant Hire moving to purpose built premises adjacent to the A1 at Long Bennington between Newark and Grantham, this new location gives easy access to the road networks in and around Nottinghamshire and Lincolnshire.

In Sept 2009 the opportunity to expand came about with the acquisition of the Mansfield branch of BHE Ltd, with a vast range of equipment we can now supply virtually anything in the plant and tool hire market.


With over 50 years combined experience our staff are on hand to offer expert advice on finding the right tool for the job, we appreciate our customers demands, that’s why our equipment is delivered on time and above all ready to work, we set ourselves high standards we pride ourselves in the quality and appearance of our equipment.

March 2017 saw Richmond celebrate it's 10th Anniversary commemorating it with raffling off limited edition Bobcat scale model excavators.

Richmond Plant Hire are keen fund raisers for Cancer Research UK and have raised £12,813.00 for the charity via various expeditions and projects throughout the years.


We respect you, our customers. RICHMOND PLANT HIRE LTD is plant and tool hire as it should be.
