Our Retail Proficiency

At Andrews heat for hire, we understand the importance of merchandisers keeping their customers warm. We can help facilitate a more comfortable shopping experience for your clientele during the colder months. With a wealth of experience in the hire of portable heaters to independent stores and high street chains, we have the capacity to satisfy your precise needs. We also offer free site surveys which allow our consultants to provide the appropriate system for your circumstances.

Seasonal temperature drops often necessitate an immediate response – particularly in a retail environment where constant custom is imperative. You may simply require basic maintenance for your own system, or even emergency action if a breakdown occurs. At Andrews we possess the country’s largest selection of compact, adaptable heaters for hire, suitable for modest shops or the largest retail outlets. We supply independent operators and include the largest retail chains amongst our major account customers.

We work with retailers and supermarkets nationwide, developing and installing heating hire packages subject to defined specifications. Whatever your requirements, we can be relied upon to provide a quick and effective method to solve the problem at hand. With depots spanning the UK, our substantial fleet of heaters will normally be dispatched within 4 hours of clients getting in touch. Our expert team will be able to swiftly respond to your call and professionally process your enquiry.


Heating within a supermarket environment is one of many significant variables which can directly affect a customer’s shopping experience. If your store is not sufficiently warm, it can deter people from visiting again with so many alternatives available. We at Andrews appreciate that lower temperatures are required in some areas in order to preserve certain foods, but this needs to be balanced with comfort heating during the winter period.

As well as keeping customers comfortable, we also acknowledge the importance of heat with regards to stock and storage. Produce, including the majority of fruit, cannot be allowed to get too cold or it will become inedible. It’s also naturally vital that members of staff feel suitably warm, in order to keep both morale and productivity at peak level.

In recent years, we have worked in conjunction with major supermarkets to guarantee the perfect environment for consumers. Heating systems are known to fail from time to time, and when this happens, we are here to help you. Our extensive range of electric, gas and oil heaters ensure every possible client requisite is catered for, irrespective of your property’s size and dimensions.

Shopping Centres

Shopping Centres -like most buildings frequented by the public – need an apposite heating system during opening hours. If this failed, customers and members of staff are likely to cease carrying out their task at hand – whether that be shopping or working.

At Andrews Sykes, we specialise in providing replacement commercial heaters at short notice, keeping your business in operation. We strive to supply safe, reliable heat for hire seven days a week from our network of depots across the UK. If you are looking after a shopping plaza and in need of emergency heating for the building, we can assist you.

Our wide range of portable heaters for sale or hire have been manufactured and produced to the highest industry standards. With thousands of units in stock, you are guaranteed to have equipment dispatched within hours of the initial problem report. We can even advise you on which heater is most befitting of your situation and can devise systems which may ultimately save you hundreds of pounds.

Whether you need an immediate resolution to a broken system or you’re simply planning maintenance and upkeep for the future, we can help. Call us on 0800 211 611 to discuss what’s best for you, or fill in an on-line enquiry form and one of our proficient contact team will follow up your query.
