West Sussex is a great location for building development. Whether you are extending your own home, landscaping your garden or working on an entire development, a mini digger is a must for all of your groundwork needs.
Mini digger hire in West Sussex is available from S&J Mini Diggers. We have a vast range of mini diggers in all different sizes that can do a range of different jobs on your site. A mini digger does not just dig holes, it can break up concrete and it can be used to reduce the number of labourers needed on your site by using it to shift heavy items like bags of cement or hardcore that can be back-breaking to move.
In fact, hiring a mini digger with a driver is much more cost-effective than you might imagine as it will help you to get a range of jobs done much faster than you could by hand. So whatever construction job you have in mind, it is always a good idea to hire a well-maintained mini digger with an experienced driver to get your job done in a timely and cost-effective manner.
At S&J Mini Diggers, all of our mini diggers for hire come with a driver. We believe that having a trained mini digger operator is essential to getting the job done properly. Mini diggers are not that small, despite the name. The smallest mini digger available for hire on the market weighs almost as much as your average car, and you would expect an unqualified driver to operate a car safely with no experience.
All of our mini digger drivers have years of experience on busy construction sites and have a vast knowledge of all of the health and safety concerns surrounding the use of mini diggers on a building site. Our mini digger drivers can safely manoeuvre our mini diggers in the tightest of spaces possible and will get the job done quickly and efficiently. Our drivers are insured and are likely to do much less damage than someone without their years of experience!
Choosing the right mini digger for the job at hand is essential. The needs of your site will also affect the type of mini digger that will be appropriate for your needs. If a mini digger is too small, it can be unstable and therefore hazardous on site. Please do not be tempted to try to save money by hiring a smaller sized digger – this will actually end up costing you more money as it will take a smaller mini digger longer to get the job done! If you hire a mini digger that is too big, it will be a problem to fit the mini digger on to your site and it could cause damage to your site and even to the surrounding environment.
If the mini digger can’t easily be moved towards the skip, it won’t be able to shift waste products or move heavy objects, so it’ll cost you more in labourer hours. A reputable company like S&J Mini Diggers will be able to advise you on the best mini digger hire for your needs.
Our most popular mini diggers for hire are the 0.75-tonne mini digger and the 1.5 tonnes mini digger. The smaller of the two can fit through the standard sized UK residential doorway, making it a great choice for areas that are restricted or where space is limited. Even in hard to reach areas, the 0.75 tonnes mini digger can excavate to a depth of around 1.8 metres. It is often chosen for landscaping works in residential gardens as it can fit through a gateway without the need to remove walls or fence panels.
The 1.5-tonne mini digger is able to fit through a relatively small gap of around 40 inches and can excavate up to 2.3 metres, making it ideal for utility works. The 1.5 mini digger is probably the most versatile as it can squeeze through small gaps whilst being incredibly powerful and durable.
Both of these mini diggers are available with breaker attachments, meaning that they can be used to break up concrete. This is great for the removal of old driveways, patios and paths. Our range of mini diggers extends well beyond this, and we also have dumper trucks available for hire with drivers to meet all of your ground works needs in West Sussex.
At S&J Mini Diggers, our pricing structure is completely transparent. All of our hires are charged at a flat rate – there will be no hidden costs. You will know exactly how much you are being charged, and how much it’ll cost you should you need to extend your hire period. We understand that delays happen on construction sites. As long as we have availability, you can extend your hire period against the flat rate that we charge.
It is always wise to plan for this within your budget, as all kind of things can happen outside of your control. Your project manager should be able to advise you on how long you will need the mini digger for, otherwise we can give you our expert opinion. Our prices include VAT and insurance. You will also be safe in the knowledge that you are also getting an experienced driver included in the cost and that our mini diggers are maintained to the highest possible standard.
