The Dos and Don’ts of Generator Hire

Key Considerations Before You Commit To Generator Rental

Do you need a generator for extra power? Swot up on these points before you choose a generator and hire company.

If you need to hire a generator either as a dependable backup option, as a response to your changing requirements during the pandemic, or to power a particular event, then you’ve come to the right place. Templant Group are experts in providing generators and related equipment to businesses across London, Essex and Herts. Before you commit to hiring a generator, make sure you ask yourself some key questions to ensure that you’re receiving the most appropriate unit for your needs. Here are some dos and don’ts to consider.

Do Choose A Company With 24/7 Availability

If you need power in a hurry, then our generators London team are on hand 24/7, 365 days a year. Once you’ve spoken to our engineers, we can offer a rapid response time for your generator unit using our very own transportation fleet. Our depot is located just 20 miles outside of the capital, so we can answer your power needs in a flash.

Don’t Choose The First Generator You See

If you’re browsing for generators, take the time to understand exactly what you’re looking for, how much power you require and what you’ll be using it for. You wouldn’t want to use a generator that is insufficient for your needs, nor would you want to waste money on a unit which offers too much power. Of course, when you use a reputable generator hire company, you can expect to receive suggestions about the most suitable model for your needs.

Do Consider Where To Site Your Equipment

Have a think about where exactly you plan to house your generator and whether it is to be used as temporary power, or installed on a more permanent basis. The size of the generator as well as the layout of your site, and its access points, will all be factors in determining where to position the unit. Smaller sizes can be delivered by van, whereas larger models may need to be placed down by crane.

Don’t Overlook The Time of Day

When do you plan to use your generator? During the day or throughout the evening and night? If you expect to need your generator to provide power all night, then this could be a problem if you’re based in a built-up area. Speak to your generator hire team about choosing a hybrid model which can run silently.

Do Choose A Green Supplier

As the corporate world is adjusting to more sustainable working policies, make sure that your generator supplier fits in with your eco-friendly values. Hybrid generators use 70% less fuel and produce significantly less emissions which makes them a great option for companies who want to achieve reduced pollution rates.

Don’t Forget About Compliance

Health and safety is the cornerstone of compliance regulations in any industry. When you’re hiring and siting your generator equipment, make sure that you adhere to strict company or industry regulations with regards to fuel safety, cabling and safe usage. You should follow the directions of your hire company to the letter and get in touch with the response team if you have any queries about how the equipment is functioning.
