Rocket Rentals launch a new red & grey era

Gloucestershire based plant hire company Rocket Rentals has invested £1.2 million in a new fleet of 25 Takeuchi mini excavators, supplied by CBL.

The family run business was founded in 2003 by Managing Director Simon Tomblin, initially starting off with a fleet of 8 telehandlers, which went out on hire to local housebuilders.  Over the years that followed other equipment was gradually phased into the fleet, including mini excavators, excavators up to 20 tonnes, dumpers, rollers and access platforms.  The fleet just keeps growing to this day and is currently 450 units strong.

Takeuchi is a new product for Rocket Rentals and, talking about the deal, Simon Tomblin said, ‘Following a chat with John Elliott, CBL’s Regional Director, we took a Takeuchi TB260 on demonstration earlier this year.  We tried it and compared it to other brands we run and we found that the feedback from our customers was extremely positive.’  Simon continued, ‘We are convinced our customers will enjoy the Takeuchi product.’ 

Talking about Takeuchi, CBL’s John Elliott said, ‘We find that the Takeuchi brand itself is very attractive to independent plant hire companies like Rocket Rentals, who are not only passionate about the industry, but who want to offer their customers the very best from their investment.  For us it’s not just about the deal, it’s about how we support it over the coming years, in terms of warranty, service, parts and back up, it’s this level of service that makes the difference for us.’
