A higher level of service from MB Hire

MB Hire is based in four key branches at Antrim Building Supplies, Antrim; Lowden Building Supplies, Duncrue, Belfast; Bangor Building Supplies, Bangor; and Macnaughton Blair Building Supplies, Balmoral Road, Belfast.

From small plant and power tools to scaffolding and even plumbing and electrical equipment, MB Hire has a vast array of branded products on offer, with the company enjoying a strong reputation with small to medium builders and tradesmen across Northern Ireland.

“Our product range is superb and we work hard to back this up with a great service,” explained Andy Thompson, Group Hire Manager. “It is important to find the balance between both products and service and that is what we consistently deliver.

“Most of our customers are regularly in our branches and know the high level of service we deliver so being able to get their hire organised as part of their usual orders is a big plus.”

Andy has a decade of experience in the hire industry, so he knows what customers expect and he believes MB Hire’s strength lies in its people.

“We have a great team, both behind the scenes and in each branch,” he explained. “We have our own workshop in Antrim, so all equipment is regularly serviced after each hire to ensure that, as a minimum, we meet the standards set by the Association of Europe.

“We also have at least one hire expert in each branch while I work across Northern Ireland dealing directly with our customers. We all receive regular training so we are able to offer comprehensive advice and guidance.

“We also have a dedicated delivery service, meaning that equipment can go direct to site anywhere in Northern Ireland.”

Competitive pricing is another reason why customers are attracted to the services of MB Hire with, in particular, the company’s range of power tools – both corded and cordless – proving to be increasingly popular.

“We are always listening to our customers and if they would like to see a certain product added to our hire offering then we will always do our best to make that happen,” concluded Andy.
