Mini Digger Hire

Hiring a digger or a dumper can be a confusing process. Luckily, our knowledgeable team are on hand to guide you through the process.

A mini digger is a handy piece of machinery. Whether you need some excavation work for your DIY project or you require significant groundwork, mini digger hire is a cost-effective way to get the work done.

The hire of a mini, micro or midi digger is a costly undertaking. So it is essential to choose the plant hire company that offers you the best deal. Remember that digger hire will cost more if you hire an operator and depending on the distance it needs to be delivered.

For this reason, you should always choose the digger hire company closest to you. If you wish to complete a construction project in the Shrewsbury or Shropshire area, then call Shropshire Groundworks today.

How Much Does It Cost To Hire A Mini Digger?

When you are considering excavation work, you will need to address the question 'How much does it cost to hire a mini digger?'

The first alternative is to assess whether you could complete the work without a mini digger at all. If you are working on a small DIY project, the cost of hiring a mini digger may become too excessive.

This would be the best way to save money, but there are many groundwork and construction projects where it will be unrealistic to complete the digging work with a shovel.

You will also need to consider how much the deposit is to hire an excavator plant. Mini diggers are expensive machines and require a significant deposit before you receive your digger.

Often the delivery charge and other costs are taken from the deposit. Once you return the digger, you will get the deposit refunded to your account.

Self Drive Digger Hire

Are you looking for a self-drive digger hire in Shrewsbury? You should first ask yourself, are you qualified to operate the machine yourself? Or do you need to hire a contractor?

If you are trained at operating a mini digger or excavator, then you will be able to reduce costs by working the machine. However, if you are not experienced operating a self-drive digger, you may end up losing money.

You may think that you can save money by operating the digger yourself. But this can prove harder than it looks. It often takes a great deal of practice to operate a mini digger efficiently. As a result, you may waste several days of your hire cost learning how to drive the excavator.

Sometimes hiring a trained contractor can be the most cost-effective solution. A skilled driver will be able to complete the work in a shorter time. This will reduce the number of days required to hire the plant.

Contractors are also good sources of knowledge. An experienced contractor can offer helpful information about soil disposal, drainage solutions and other project advice.

Micro Digger Hire

One way to save money on your micro digger hire is to choose the right size machine. Some jobs will only permit access to smaller diggers, and there needs to be enough room to manoeuvre. A larger digger will also come with a higher hire rate.

It can be tempting to hire the largest digger available. This is rarely the most cost-effective option. A smaller digger will be more economical and cost less to hire. You should discuss your requirements with our hire team to find out which mini digger is best suited to your needs.

Remember that you will usually be able to get a discount on the fixed day rate if you hire a digger for a longer period. If you are not sure how long the project will take, it is safer to hire the digger for a day longer than expected at the reduced rate.
