Our History


Brian Dent Limited is a family run company which was established back in 1958, initially as an agricultural contractor undertaking hedge cutting, bailing hay, ploughing, drainage and water pipe installations etc.


We have worked hard to grow and develop since our humble beginnings into today offering plant & tool hire as well as still contracting within the quarrying, landfill, utilities, local authorities, railway, building and civil engineering sectors throughout the North West.

Since our company was established we have welcomed many customers who have come to depend on us over and over again - such is the quality of our service and pricing!

We welcome all domestic and commercial customers from around the North West and we are happy to undertake work nationally upon request.

Our skilled team of staff are happy to operate the machinery if required, and we also offer our equipment on a self drive basis, if you would prefer to do the job yourself.

All of our staff are either CPCS or NPORs certificated and are competent in operating the machinery.


With over 600 items currently on our fleet and annual investment, we are certain we can meet your plant and tool requirements

Plant Haulage and Transport

HireSecure Loss & Damage Waiver

We all know accidents happen.

Some accidents can be more costly than others, especially when it comes to plant machinery.


As an active member of Hire Association Europe (HAE), we now offer their HireSecure and Loss & Damage Waiver product on hires.

This product will be required for customers who do not have their own insurance or those customers whose insurance does not cover the equipment value to be hired.


HireSecure Loss & Damage Waiver is there to act as a safety net, to give you peace of mind should the worst happen.


If you would like any further information, please contact us or call into our depot to speak with us about HireSecure.
