About Martin Plant Hire

Martin Plant Hire is an independent, Scottish firm with depots covering the whole of Scotland. For nearly 50 years, we've been hiring tools, plant and equipment to customers throughout Scotland.


We're no.1 for a reason - we know what you need!

To us, it doesn't matter if you're a construction firm on a large build, or just a punter doing your own DIY project. Everyone needs a supplier they can rely on as they would their best mate.


That's us. We've got the widest stock, the best service and the keenest prices. Plus loads more as well - from Health & Safety Training Courses to repairs on your own equipment. All with friendly, no-nonsense service and a can-do attitude. Just as a mate never lets you down, neither do we. You can rely on Martin Plant Hire.

COVID-19 Update

In line with government guidelines regarding Coronavirus, we are adjusting to the new normal and are pleased to say we can once again offer the full Martin Plant Hire service in a safe and effective way.

All of our depots have thermometers in place to check the temperatures of our staff every morning, any staff member with a temperature exceeding 37.8 degrees will be asked to vacate the premises and follow the guidelines we have set out.

Within our depots and workshops we are practising social distancing, staggering shifts and planning breaks appropriately to allow for maximum productivity so we do not impede our customers whilst still keeping all our staff safe.

Stringent hygiene practises are in place with soap and hand sanitiser available and all staff encouraged to wash their hands regularly as outlined by government guidelines. A more frequent cleaning rota is in place, ensuring the workspace is regularly sanitised. We are encouraging staff to bring pre-packaged food to work and to dispose of rubbish into the bins provided.

Our workshop staff have their own sets of tools to avoid cross contamination.

Our customer facing staff members on our hire desks are working with plastic screens providing protection between the staff and visitors. In line with government requirements, face coverings are mandatory for all visitors when they are in a Martin Plant Hire branch.

Our drivers work to assigned vehicles and wear suitable PPE when delivering equipment to sites.

Staff who can work from home, such as our admin staff, are doing so – avoiding unnecessary travel to and from work as well as minimising exposure.

When it comes to offering our usual high standard of service and full range of equipment safely and effectively even in the current climate, you can rely on Martin Plant Hire.
