Christmas Shutdown 2018

As we approach the Christmas Holidays, Skipton Hire Centre would like to give you notice of our proposed arrangements over the festive period across our depot network:

Monday 24th December: All Depots Close at Midday
Christmas Day, Boxing Day & New Years Day: All Depots Closed
Open: Skipton Depot only – Thursday 27th Friday 28th and Monday 31st (8am to 5pm)
Saturday 29th December: All Depots Closed
All Depots Re-Open: Wednesday 2nd January 2019 – 7.30am

There will be no charge for Plant and Small Tools which continue ‘on hire’ during our shutdown period, these will automatically be suspended for the following dates:

• Tuesday 25th December 2018
• Wednesday 26th December 2018
• Tuesday 1st January 2019

None Mechanical items such as Acrow Props / Site Fencing / site generators etc. will remain on hire during the Christmas shutdown period.

If you wish to retain equipment there is no need for specific instructions to us as we will automatically suspend hires for our published closure dates, however if your shutdown period differs from ours please complete the details below and send back by email to or by post to SHC Hire Centres, Carleton New Road, Skipton, BD23 2DE. All allowances will be automatically calculated where appropriate, for the Christmas and New Year period.

If you require Plant to be collected, please ‘off hire’ in the usual way (obtaining an off-hire number) and allow at least 5 days for us to organise collection as this will be a particularly busy time. If, for any reason, we are unable to collect, you can of course return equipment to any of our depots up to and including Monday 24th December 12 noon. Naturally you will be responsible for all items which remain on your site.

Thank you for your co-operation; we would like to thank you for your business throughout 2018 and hope 2019 is a prosperous year for us all.

Wishing you a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.

Neil Bravery
Managing Director
