Hire Suspensions

What are hire suspensions?

During the Christmas break, you can suspend your hire charges rather than off-hire everything in December and on-hire it back again in January. This means that you won't be charged for equipment you keep on site during the Christmas break, and you don't have to worry about arranging collections and deliveries.

Here are some of the reasons we offer this service:

  • Sites are more productive from the first days of the new year because tools are already on site
  • Time saved requesting and arranging off-hires and collections
  • Time saved ordering tools in the new year
  • Avoid unnecessary transport charges
  • Reduced Carbon Footprint

How to arrange your hire suspensions

Arranging your hire suspensions is simple, easy, and you can do it in advance.

  • Email suspend@cityhire.co.uk detailing your request to suspend your equipment on hire for your account/s
  • We will send you an email confirming receipt of your suspension request and include the list of items not eligible for suspension, if applicable
  • Suspensions will begin automatically on Tuesday 24th December and stop on Wednesday 1st January

What equipment is eligible for suspension?

Most equipment we hire is eligible for suspension except:

*Cross-hired equipment is denoted by an 'X' in the stock number field of your hire report. By applying a filter to your hire report that shows only stock numbers containing 'X', you will be able to generate a report of all cross-hired equipment
