We understand the importance of keeping workshops and garages suitably warm, particularly during winter. Large open doors, concrete floors and general draughtiness all contribute towards creating a cold, damp environment. There is a correlation between the contentment and productivity of staff and the comfort of their surroundings, so we will always act quickly to ensure output does not drop.

Our portable heaters for hire are designed to raise temperatures fast and ensure they remain at an appropriate level. We have a wealth of experience in providing heating systems to garages and a broad network of depots located throughout the UK - guaranteeing swift delivery of your equipment at any time of day. We also offer a free site visit at a time convenient to you, allowing us to select the best solution for your premises.

Our range of electric heaters is ideally suited to garages and vehicle repair facilities because of their adaptability and instant effect on the environment they are placed in. We also offer units with built-in circulation fans in order to successfully heat larger areas. Our unrivalled selection of units allows you to choose the safest and most cost-effective heater for your location - with same-day delivery guaranteed.

In garages where fuel oil is stored we can provide indirect fired units which supply high volumes of safe, fume free heating. These units can be automatically controlled by a remote thermostat to enable your garage to be kept at the set temperatures that you require.

We specialise in the short-notice provision of heat for hire, ensuring your business or operation can proceed unhindered.

Keeping your workshop or garage warm is important not just for the comfort of employees, but also their safety. Using machinery or tools with cold hands is more difficult and so the risk of injury rises as the temperature plummets. There are a number of ways to heat your workplace, with electric, oil-fired and gas-fired units all available for hire. From basic frost protection to a comprehensive heating design, our workshop equipment can be tailored to your exact requirements with fuel efficiency the key component in any solution.

We understand that working environments of this nature have limited floor and wall space, so we have developed smaller, compact heating units to overcome this issue. Fully portable and extremely robust, our models can generate large amounts of hot air instantly and even have adjustable settings - depending on which heaters you hire.

During colder periods especially, heating systems are prone to failure or breakdown. Whether you require an emergency boiler replacement or a temporary heating solution to bypass your current system, we can help. Contact us for a free site survey and one of our experts will visit your building to ascertain the most suitable remedy to your problem.
