Hire abroad, pay in UK


A GOSPORT tool hirer claims to have beaten its bigger rivals to be the first to offer contractors which work in Europe the chance to source tools from local suppliers, but with the orders and invoices dealt with in the UK.

Nationwide Services, which specialises in shopfitting and construction, has struck deals with two large European hire firms, allowing it access to 700 outlets in France, Germany, Belgium and Luxemburg.

From May, customers will also be able to hire skips and book hotel accommodation in Europe.

Managing director Howard Wilkinson said: 'We identified that many clients had difficulty in obtaining the equipment they require when working abroad.'
