Event hire specialist, Briggs Equipment, has provided a fleet of short term hire equipment to help successfully complete the set-up and removal of a number of stages and platforms at Crufts 2020.
Crufts is well known across the globe as the world’s biggest and most prominent dog show. Each year thousands of spectators and participants descend on the NEC arena in Birmingham for a week of thrilling competition.
For any event operating at the scale of Crufts, a vast support infrastructure is required to ensure the show goes ahead as scheduled and provides a safe environment for all attendees. As part of the preparations and closing of this year’s show, Briggs worked with key partners to ensure an appropriate equipment fleet of Yale counterbalance forklifts and Yale powered pallet trucks was delivered on-time.
Briggs continues to invest strategically into its short term hire solutions, with a recent £6.1m investment bolstering its fleet to more than 5,500 machines, ensuring the dedicated team can respond efficiently to a wide range of requests.
Kate Hill, Specialist Hire Manager, said: “We have built up an excellent reputation for providing quality hire solutions for some of the world’s biggest events and venues and we’re proud to have once again been involved in the Crufts show.
“One of our key processes before any event is to fully understand the environment that we’ll be supplying our equipment into and the specific requirements of our customers. This helps ensure we’re delivering relevant solutions that can be used immediately by on-site staff.
“Crufts 2020 was no different, and the feedback we’ve received from our customer regarding the quality of our machines and service has been exceptional. Our activity in the events and exhibitions sector continues to grow and we’re always increasing our capabilities in this important area of business.
“By having an incredibly diverse set of machines and equipment in our short term hire fleet, alongside unrivalled engineering support, we are able to stay ahead of the competition and provide a truly unique offering for our customers.”
