Speedy Hire launches members’ club for small plants 30 March 2011

Plant and equipment rental and support firm Speedy has launched a members-only service for tradesmen and small to medium size businesses.

John Byrne, product development director and head of Speedy Assist, says the scheme is aimed at supporting members in winning work, cutting costs, complying with regulations and getting training.

He estimates that membership could save individuals and companies up to £1,400 in the first year, on a wide range of products and services. New business leads and advice lines will be free, he says, while other services will come from selected partners "at very competitive and exclusive rates".

Byrne cites car and van hire, mobile phones, small business insurances and other services, and adds that Speedy Assist will also provice access to expert advice on legislation, insurance, self-employment and legal issues affecting the industry.

"As budgets get tighter and contractors strive to fill order books, we felt it would help our SME customers, if we could use some of our scale and buying power to leverage benefits and share them with our customers," explains Byrne.

"SMEs are the backbone of the UK's industry and very important to us: if we can help maximise their potential, it's good for all of us," he adds.
