About Us

The Hireman is an award-winning family business that has been providing tool hire and equipment services to our customers since 1985

Having won Executive Hire's award for 'Most Impressive New Small to Medium Outlet' in 2013 with our East London Tool Hire Depot, been runners-up for 'Best Super Centre' with our central London Tool Hire Depot in 2012 and finalists for the 'Passionate Hirer 10/10 Awards' in 2016, The Hireman has proved to be a driving force within the construction support and equipment hire industry.

Tool and Equipment Hire has always been our main focus, and as the company has grown we have expanded our services to include consumable sales, equipment repairs and a dedicated PASMA approved safety training centre offering a broad range of general and industry-specific courses.

We've built our business on a same-day delivery service with well-maintained equipment, competitive pricing and accurate invoicing. Our knowledgeable staff will help you get the right equipment at great prices, whatever the job.

Our training centre offers first-class training delivered by industry specialists from our state-of-the-art facility in Canning Town.

From humble beginnings in Black Swan Yard, Bermondsey, where Bruce and Jean Graham began trading over 30 years ago, we now have three depots across London. Here is our story:
