HireHub Saves Time

If you have a busy schedule juggling many jobs and working with many suppliers, HireHub helps to streamline the access platform hire experience. Without needing a phone call or email, simply order or off-hire in a few clicks through HireHub, day or night. You can even get spend and invoice information quickly should your boss or finance team need it. Want to extend your hire? With HireHub, you can do exactly that in just one click.  

This online platform lets you view and manage quotes, hires, off-hires, and invoices in moments.

HireHub is Efficient

HireHub is impressively efficient and reliable. Every time you order with HireHub, you’ll automatically receive an order confirmation email to your inbox, giving you a reliable paper trail for enhanced project managment and accountability. 

Plus, in the unlikely event of machine failure, you can contact us via your HireHub account, in addition to calling or emailing. Our team will then arrange for an engineer to contact you, or even visit your site, minimising downtime and stress.

Want to know what you’ve got on hire or extend a hire? It’s all there. Need to find an invoice? It’s super quick and easy. With HireHub you have everything you need all in one place. 

HireHub is Transparent

At Horizon Platforms, we have an open and transparent relationship with our clients, which is why each HireHub account has a personalised dashboard featuring carefully tracked MEWP hire statistics. This includes dates, times, delays, repairs, spend and more for complete visibility from us to you. Why? The dashboard holds Horizon Platforms to account and makes sure we always focus on what matters most to our clients.

In the unlikely event that Horizon is late on delivering an order or providing maintenance or repair work – a rare occurrence as we have 98% effectiveness on all orders – that will also be recorded on your dashboard for absolute transparency.
