Steve McKenzies's update
810 visits and travelled 22,219 miles! This is a great achievement and the most visits every carried out in the run up to our industry’s annual event.
It is always nice to receive a warm welcome during our visits and that is exactly what I got when I called in to Hares Hire in Rainham. The company is run by Daren Hare and his father David, and their enthusiasm for the business is infectious. They have an extensive hire fleet and service their local area in Essex, in addition to many customers in Central London.
Daren makes good use of social media and I regularly see posts of the company delivering equipment out of hours to help their customers get projects finished and meet their deadlines. This sort of service reinforces how the company go the extra mile for their customers.
Daren and David look forward to their annual visit to the Show and make great use of all it has to offer. Over the years, they have found numerous new products at the event, which have helped them service and support their loyal customer base. In addition to the business aspects of the Show, they also enjoy the opportunity to socialise with other hirers, suppliers and friends from within the industry.
During our visits, it is always rewarding to see hirers that we call in on turn up at the Show. The event brings clear benefits, including the opportunity to find new products and innovations, great Show-Only deals and the chance to come together with like-minded hirers and share experiences and knowledge.
I would ask any hirers who might not think about taking time to visit the Show: can you really afford not to? I know of many hirers who have found new products that have generated new revenue streams, which they would have missed out on if they did not attend!
I would like to personally invite all of the hirers that we have visited during this year’s National Visitor Campaign to come and see us on the HSC stand (E42). You will receive a very warm welcome from the HSC Team and we have a number of new products to show you, along with some brilliant Show-only deals!
See you at the Show!
