Birkenhead Car and Van Hire, a trusted name in the self-drive vehicle hire industry for over 40 years, serves the entire northwest region of the UK. They offer a wide range of vehicles, including cars and light commercial vehicles, some equipped with specialised features like tail-lifts and cranes. Arfon Engineering Services, a valued customer of Birkenhead Car and Van Hire, specialises in motor rewinds and pump servicing; efficiently loading and unloading heavy motors onto their vehicles is vital to their operation.
When Birkenhead Car and Van Hire needed to update their fleet, they had to choose between purchasing a new crane or seeing if it was possible to relocate the existing one. Confidence in the reliability of the transferred crane over the next 5 years was paramount for both Birkenhead Car and Van Hire and Arfon Engineering Services. Their existing crane was supplied, installed and serviced by Penny Hydraulics previously, so we already had a firm understanding of its history and duty cycle. This meant that we were able to advise on the suitability of the crane to work reliably for the life of the new vehicle, as well as the crane refit process.
