The Shareplant Concept

Shareplant is a service that connects equipment owners directly to hirers so that they can rent construction equipment to each other when it would be otherwise be sitting idle – maximising utilisation and profit.  

Equipment owners can join and list any type equipment for free, whilst hirers can join to find nearby self drive or operated specialist equipment to rent in seconds!

This new way of thinking is based on the ‘Sharing Economy’, which is based on two concepts:

  • The assets we own aren’t used all of the time.
  • We don’t need to own everything – we can rent other people’s equipment.

Increase Construction Utilisation & Profitability

Owner benefits

As a plant owner, maximising utilisation and profit is one of your goals.  By using Shareplant, you have access to construction organisations that need your equipment, allowing you to rent it out when you aren’t using it.  Shareplant will help you mange your workload, access new markets, find new clients and earn extra money, helping you grow your business.

Constructor benefits

As a constructor, you need to find the right equipment when you need it, in the right location at the right price.  By using Shareplant, you can search your local area to quickly find and rent a wide variety of nearby, self drive or operated specialist construction equipment.  You can grow relationships with local organisations who can offer you excellent customer service, flexibility and value for money.

Client benefits

As a client or end user, obtaining best value for money and environmental performance from your projects are paramount.  By encouraging your construction providers and supply chain to use Shareplant, you will encourage predictability and best value on your construction projects by facilitating collaboration between main contractors and the supply chain.

Supply chain benefits

Smaller equipment providers offer great flexibility and very competitive prices, but often struggle to find a way to market when dealing with large client organisations.  Shareplant connects these smaller service providers with the large construction organisations through our innovative platform, allowing equipment owners to offer their plant for hire when they aren’t using it.  By using Shareplant, you are helping to nurture and grow the supply chain

Environmental benefits

By using Shareplant to find local equipment, transport costs, CO2 emmissions and wear and tear on the roads network are greatly reduced.
