The Company

Late 2016 myself (Andy Dance) along with John Slone of John Slone contracting limited as partners, created the company name DS SITE SERVICES NW LIMITED.   DS PLANT HIRE became a division of the company.
My background is 35 years in the plant hire industry, covering all aspects from small tools to cranes, including plant & powered access.   Within them years I have collated I wide range of  loyal customers who hire from me knowing that they will get a first-class service at a very realistic price.  DS Plant Hire will always go that extra mile, to ensure the customer gets what they order on time. This goes the same for John we are both well known in the Furness area for being honest and reliable.  Our customers base is based upon mainly contractors who work at BAE SYSTEMS Barrow in Furness and BNFL Sellafield.  At DS Plant Hire, we hold a vast amount of plant,  DS Plant Hire also act as a broker for all other items we don’t own or we are out of stock at the time of the hire.
