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
