Total Hire and Sales: Coronavirus Update and Opening Hours 06/01/2021 

The Government has announced that the UK will be in another national lockdown from Tuesday 5th January 2021 until mid February 2021. This is subject to ongoing review and will be updated in due course. 


As essential providers of equipment for hire and sale to the building and construction industry we will continue to support local and national businesses as much as we can. From Tuesday 5th January 2021 onwards, all Total Hire and Sales locations and services will be fully operational and adhering to government guidelines:


  • All our sites will be open from 7am to 5pm on Monday to Friday offering a full range of services


  • Every site has a COVID-19 risk assessment plan in place and all reasonable measures are being taken to regularly clean and sanitise the environment and equipment


  • A protective screen is in place at every reception desk and we are operating one person policy inside each depot to keep our staff and customers safe


  • Everyone visiting site must wear a mask, provide their own personal protective equipment and follow social distancing guidelines


  • All our deliveries and collections are contactless


  • All our team wear masks, use disposable gloves and are regularly briefed on any new health and safety measures required, to protect themselves and our customers


  • Anyone who is experiencing any symptoms of Coronavirus or is self isolating, we respectfully ask you to keep away from site until it is safe to visit



We are continually assessing our COVID-19 risk assessments and implementing rigorous health and safety measures to protect our colleagues, customers and suppliers. We are also working closely with our trade body Hire Association Europe (HAE) to adhere to the latest advice and guidance. For more details visit:


Our team is doing everything it can to safely keep services and sites running, however this maybe subject to change at short notice. We apologise for any inconvenience caused during this uncertain time and appreciate your patience as we navigate through the latest measures.


The next review is planned in mid February, however restrictions are expected to last for longer, potentially into March 2021. We will update our status if and when further changes are announced.
