About us

Whatever your plant hire needs, we can help you to find the right solution.

Established in 1993, Acorn Plant Hire is very much a family business, run by father and son for over 20 years. With very few companies in the market at that time offering a door to door service, we began with a single 1 tonne mini tracked excavator and quickly expanded, meeting a growing demand from smaller businesses who need to hire plant equipment for site clearance, landscaping and other projects.

Today we offer our service to a wide range of clients, from small builders to major contracted works with Lancashire County Council and UK Coal, working on restoration of the county’s old landfill sites, motorway construction projects and the opencast mine at Cutacre near Bolton.

What makes us different from other plant hire companies is our personal approach and commitment to customer service; we offer a bespoke package to help you source exactly the right machinery to get your job done right and on budget. Our aim is to ensure that you get the best equipment for the job at the best possible prices, helping you to make savings without any compromises on quality.

We can also help you to find the right specialist tradesmen to complete your project – we have excellent relationships with a wide network of industry professionals, and we can put you in touch with experts on tree felling, fencing and more.

We are proud to offer this personal service to each and every one of our clients, no matter the type or scale of your project, and we believe this is what makes a difference to our customers.
