Why choose FTH?Why Choose FTH?

We understand that there are many plant hire companies in the South East that you can choose from. But we believe hiring from FTH Hire Group gives you many more benefits, and why we think you should choose FTH as your plant, tool and equipment hire company.

Core Values

FTH Hire Group from the very beginning has been a family run business; supplying tools, equipment and plant machinery for over 40 years. Over this time our core commitment has always been to our customers and our staff.

This commitment is part of our customer charter, and helps us to supply our customers with quality equipment, that’s always in stock.

Coverage & Delivery

With an ever-expanding network of hire hubs throughout the South East, it has never been easier to find an FTH Hire Hub that’s convenient for you. For example, our latest hire hub in Southampton is perfect for customers looking to hire equipment in Hythe, Totton, Lyndhurst, Eastleigh, Romsey, and all the towns and villages in between.

With 8 Hire Hubs across the South East, we’re also able to offer flexible transport of our compact plant; from excavators and telehandlers to essential tools like wacker plates, cement mixers and aluminium towers - this includes delivery into London and surrounding areas.

We now have over 20 of our own transport vehicles available, from 26 tonne lorries, flatbeds and pick-up trucks, to deliver you what you want, when you need it.


Plant machinery, tools and equipment should always be kept in excellent working condition to ensure the safety of operators. That’s why everything we have available to hire at FTH Hire Group is maintained to the highest standards by our in-house workshop team.

Our equipment is also replaced every 12 – 18 months, ensuring customers are always hiring machines that are up to date, efficient, and reliable.


We understand that security is important, particularly for plant machinery. That’s why we offer free security tracking on plant machinery hired through us. If a machine is stolen, it can be traced with our security tracking technology.

This gives you added peace of mind, as well as being a deterrent for thieves. It also offers compliance for insurance purposes.


We have a consistently growing number of plant machinery, tools, and equipment available from all our hire hubs. We currently have over 7,000 items in our Plant, Tools, Access and Landscaping ranges. A number of our products are also included in our Core 80 Product Promise; these items are guaranteed to always be in stock at all of our hire hubs across the South East.


Using FTH also allows you to manage your hires online at the touch of a button. Our customer portal allows customers to order, off-hire and manage their accounts fully online.

This, teamed with our competitive pricing to suit a wide range of budgets, means that choosing FTH Hire Group allows you to be incredibly flexible with hiring the equipment you need.
