About us

It all started with a ladder…

Believe it or not, Bents first started out life many moons ago as a painting and decorating company.

Back then, company owner, Edward Bent, got fed up with other painters asking to borrow his extra ladder, and the idea for Bents was born.

More than 50 years later, we’ve grown as London has grown, hiring out plant and tools for many iconic projects, including Wembley Stadium, Canary Wharf, The Gherkin, Westminster Palace, the Shard, Spurs Stadium and the 2012 Olympic Park.

Thanks to our independent roots, we’ve evolved as the world and our customers have evolved. But one thing’s for sure, we’ve always been the plant and tool hire company you can count on for a fast and reliable service that’s fairly priced and speaks your language.

Why choose us

Dedicated service

We provide our customers with what they need when they need it. In most cases, we can deliver on the same or next day. And we rarely say ‘no’.

Unrivalled knowledge

After 50 years in the business, there’s nothing we don’t know about plant and tool hire or can’t help you with. Our site equipment experience is unrivalled – have you put it to the test yet?

Tried and trusted

We’re not tried and tested; we’re tried and trusted. Our customers can depend on us to deliver the goods when they need them because we always deliver on our promises.

Breaking the mould

We’re not like any other plant hire companies you’ll find out there. Being independent means we write our own rules and can flex our services to meet your construction hire needs.

What our clients say


They have consistently delivered an extremely professional service, meeting my exacting standards in plant hire requirements without failing to meet expectations."
