Washington, Tyne & Wear, U.K. (1st March 2019) Phoenix Hire & Sales recently boosted their powered access rental fleet with delivery of multiple Snorkel lifts.

In response to increasing customer demand, Phoenix Hire & Sales made the decision to expand their powered access fleet this year. Following careful consideration of the options available, Phoenix placed an order with Snorkel UK for Snorkel S3219E and S3226E electric scissor lifts; as well as adding their first compact rough terrain scissor lift, the Snorkel S3370RT, and their first towable boom lift, the Snorkel TL37J.

These units join the Snorkel S3010P and Snorkel A46JRT which Phoenix already operate within their fleet. The new models, which are all manufactured in the UK by Snorkel, were handed over to Phoenix Hire in February by Scott Holtby, Area Sales Manager and Trevor Williamson, After Sales Support Manager of Snorkel UK, who provided technical training to the workshop team, and product training to the sales team to help them win hire and sales opportunities.

Operating from six branches across Wales, Phoenix Hire & Sales is a leading independent tool hire provider that celebrated 10 years in business during 2018. Offering a wide range of products for hire, ranging from building and site equipment, to landscaping tools, welding, compaction and access, Phoenix Hire & Sales has enjoyed continued rapid growth and recently moved to larger premises for its Cardiff location.

Of the new equipment, Jason Derraven, Sales, Marketing & IT Director, at Phoenix Hire & Sales said, “Our customers have been asking us for an increased range of powered access products in our fleet. We carefully considered this investment, and chose Snorkel as we have been very happy with their products already in our fleet, and we appreciate that they are manufactured right here in the UK. We have also received excellent service from Scott and the Snorkel UK team, as well as fast delivery.”

Andrew Fishburn, Managing Director at Snorkel, added, “We are extremely grateful to the team at Phoenix Hire & Sales for their continued business. At Snorkel UK, we like to partner with our customers and we are very pleased to be able to provide their team with sales and technical training to help them to maximize the return on their investment.”
