What We Do

From material handlers to special machinery, we have a diverse range of machinery that can support any project you may have. As well as our exceptional equipment, we also have an extraordinary team on hand who have decades of experience meaning they are able to understand your project and advise on the best equipment or machinery needed. Having our headquarters in Bristol also gives you the added benefit of being able to get machinery on-site to you much quicker than many other competitors.

Why Pick Gorrel Plant Hire

Part of what makes Gorrel stand out from its competitors is its dedicated national support team. The team is made up of Engineers from around the UK, all of which are able to provide expert support and an immediate response time at a call, 24/7. Another reason why our clients continuously use us over other competitors is because of our incredible fleet of vehicles and equipment on offer. In fact, most of our current fleet is less than 3 years old meaning you can place full confidence that the machinery we provide will be the best option on the market and have the lowest chance of faulting.

Our Bristol office is the headquarters for Gorrel, as such it’s where we ensure that all of our operations are fully compliant under ISO standards and various other bodies, more of which you can find under our compliance page. As a multi-national company, we understand that the industry we operate in comes with its impacts on the environment, as such we take these compliance issues very seriously.

Gorrel sits under the Walters Group, a multi-faceted organisation who cover everything under civil engineering, development and plant hire. As such, we have a highly knowledgeable team who will be able to understand your needs, and provide the best possible service.
