Kennards Hire has launched a new service in the Australian marketplace, offering 24-hour onsite equipment hire solutions during the execution of projects.

The newly launched service, Kennards Hire Site Solutions (KHSS) provides onsite solutions during scheduled site shutdowns, turnarounds, rail possessions and critical works as well as at both large and small project works that require an onsite equipment hire solution. KHSS is a customised onsite hire equipment management system that can be partnered with any project requiring tailored packages on worksites.

KHSS personnel work with all Kennards Hire business units to provide a customised solution for clients, identifying equipment requirements for projects of all shapes, sizes and durations. KHSS services can be provided for small one day projects with a handful of staff through to large yearlong projects employing hundreds of staff. Customised to specific requirements, these equipment solutions can be delivered via small site boxes, 20’ and 40’ containers, through to fitted-out trailers for easy low cost mobilisation to site.

The service begins with a meeting between specialised staff from KHSS and the client’s project team to confirm details about the equipment, scope of work, and whether Kennards Hire staff will be required onsite, and for what period/term of project. KHSS then coordinates with all Kennards Hire specialist and general hire offerings including Concrete Care, Rail, Lift & Shift, Test & Measure, Traffic, and Pump & Power to stock the required equipment.

Unstaffed options are available for smaller, more routine projects that only require products. With unstaffed KHSS options, additional products are available on call 24/7 and there is flexibility to extend or change products should project needs change. 

The client also receives detailed reporting for the Kennards Hire staff managed KHSS solutions provided onsite. KHSS utilises its own fleet management system for effective shutdown/project analysis, with the software recording and providing accurate and detailed reporting for every nominated person issued with a contractor card as well as details on equipment tracking, accountability of equipment, and utilisation information including any variations, saving the client time and money.

Kennards Hire also ensures all equipment available through KHSS is safe and ready to go for customers with the QR code plant portal system.

For a limited time and subject to approval, Kennards Hire is offering new clients the opportunity to discuss a one-off KHSS solution free of charge on their next project.
