One Stop Hire has announced the opening of its first depot in London. Situated on a two acre site in Erith, southeast London, the 20,000sqft unit will house all the company's hire, sales, training, non-mechanical and lifting divisions.

Speaking of the move, One Stop CEO Steve Hitchen commented: “Since we launched our nationwide 'Total Solutions Provider' service to our clients in the early part of 2023 we have been inundated with hire, sales & training orders for the London area, so it makes sense to now have a presence there and we hope this will be the first depot in a network that will see us eventually cover the whole M25 region.

"We have great depot coverage already in the Northwest, Northeast and  Midlands, and the truth is we have been looking for opportunities to bolster our Yorkshire and Eastern area to support our very busy Leeds depot, but this has been a challenge so far. We were very fortunate to find a perfect property and a great team in London and this has just taken priority for now.

"This is a great way to celebrate our recent 14th anniversary in October and sees us now evolve from a Northwest regional to pretty much a national operator. This is an amazing achievement for the whole management team and staff that constantly drives this business forward."
