In some cases, however, particularly if your request is more complex, more time may be required up to a maximum of three months from the date we receive your request. You will be kept fully informed of our progress.

Since buying my first new excavator from Joe, I have purchased numerous Kubota’s and Thwaites off of BTE.
The Kubota is unbeatable in the hire industry due to its reliability and simplicity for the user, backed up with Joe and BTE's excellent service there is no reason to look elsewhere.
Joe has helped me to grow the fleet with expert knowledge of the machinery and at competitive prices which is why I have stuck with BTE. The company as a whole is well organised and can’t do enough to help even when there have been issues, we have worked together with the staff at Leyland and they have been rectified easily and quickly.
Both teams have been invaluable over the years, the knowledge and help they have given has helped our service team get our machines back up and running as quickly as possible. Help with wiring diagrams, updates on breakdowns, offers and help with parts cost have also been a massive part in great customer service.
