UK equipment rental company P.E.T. Hire has added 11 Snorkel electric scissor lifts to its fleet.

Based in Crewe, Cheshire, P.E.T. Hire Centre was established in 1974 and remains Cheshire's largest independent hire company. Offering a wide range of services to the region, P.E.T. Hire provides tool, plant and access hire and repair for many leading brands, including Stihl, Makita, DeWalt and Metabo.

P.E.T. Hire moved to a purpose-built 2,000 sqm hire depot in 2015.

The order for 11 electric scissor lifts was placed with Joseph Whitton, sales representative for Snorkel UK, by company director Carl Banks. The order included six Snorkel S3219Es, four Snorkel S3226Es and a Snorkel S4732E electric scissor lift, which have already been deployed in its access hire fleet.

Banks says he placed the order with Snorkel based on the quality and competitive pricing of the product. "Additionally, the numerous design adaptations on their new range of electric scissor lifts helped to swing the balance in their favour. We have always found that, with good spare parts back up and personable engineers at the end of the phone, downtime is kept to a minimum when we have a rare breakdown in our existing fleet of Snorkel lifts."

Andrew Fishburn, managing director of Snorkel UK, adds that P.E.T. Hire is a well-rounded, independently owned rental company which "clearly takes pride in delivering excellent products and customer service to their regional customer base".
