Shorts Plant Hire, Milford is a large, compact-plant & tool-hire business based in Milford, just south of Godalming, Surrey. Now, with Shorts Plant Hire in Ascot, the area that we can both cover includes Surrey, Berkshire, parts of West Sussex & Hampshire & also parts of South-West London.

We carry a very extensive, in-depth range of compact plant, tools & equipment in our hire fleet, all of which is fully maintained by our fitters to a high standard. In Milford, we also have a comprehensively stocked shop where we sell a large range of products.

You name it we probably hire it - anything from a wallpaper stripper to a 13-ton excavator! If you can’t find what you want on our web site, or need some advice, do contact us.

We pride ourselves on giving a high level of friendly professional service. We are pleased to offer advice & appreciate a challenge!

The Shorts Group offers many other related services within our industry including plant hire, waste management (skips, muck away), demolition, recycling and agricultural contracting.

Tools and Equipment
One-, two- and three-day rates are available on most items. One week is seven days. Beyond that hire charges are per seven-day week with the hire charge for part week(s) after the initial week at 1/5 of the weekly rate per day. The maximum period for a weekend hire is 4.00pm Friday to 9.30am Monday and is charged at the two-day rate.
Large Plant
Again one-, two- and three-day rates are available on most items. One week is a five-day working week with the hire charge for part week(s) after the initial week at 1/5 of the weekly rate per day. The maximum period for a weekend hire is 8.00am Saturday until 7.30am Monday and is charged at the two-day rate.

Prices quoted on this web site exclude VAT and are subject to alteration without prior notice. Prices quoted are ex-depot. We operate a delivery / collection service ,if required, for which a very competitive charge is made according to the mileage and handling involved.

Are those of The Hire Trade Alliance. They appear on the reverse of our Hire Contracts, and copies are available on request.

We can now offer Hireguard insurance to our customers who don't have their own insurance. The cost of this insurance will add just an additional 15% of the hire rate to the hire cost. For example, for a micro-excavator the one-day rate is currently £80 - the rate with insurance will be just £92. Alternatively, you may want to visit JCB Insurance who can offer short-term hired-in-plant insurance.

The safekeeping of our hire equipment is Hirer’s responsibility from on hire until return to our depot or collection by us but we take security very seriously & fit, at some considerable additional cost, various insurance-approved security devices to all our major plant.

Account facilities are available to regular hirers. Please ask for an application form. Accounts can usually be opened within 24 hours.

Will be asked for a deposit, the level of which is at our discretion. This will be by card, and on return of the equipment the balance will be charged/refunded whichever is the case. Non-account customers may also be asked to provide identification.

Our equipment is checked between every hire. The checks vary according to the type of equipment but are comprehensive and full written details are kept of every check. To help you fulfil your duty of care for yourself and your employees and yours and their personal safety we check that what we provide you with in the way of equipment conforms to all current requirements. However you should check each task for product suitability, user competence and necessary protective wear. Advice available if required.

Monday to Friday 7.30am – 5.00pm
Saturdays 8.00am – 12.00pm
