Hire Association Europe is the leading trade association for hire and rental companies in the UK, Ireland and Europe. Its membership encompasses companies from the tool, equipment and plant hire sectors

Hire Association Europe is the leading trade association for hire and rental companies in the UK, Ireland and Europe.

Hire Association Europe formed as a trade association in 1974 and now represents over 1000 member companies, operating over 3000 hire and rental outlets. Through their membership, all Hire Association Europe (HAE) members are represented at Uk and European level adding a significant benefit and ensuring that changes proposed and pending by both the UK and EU can be brought forward for debate by our members. Operating in the UK alone involves in-depth knowledge of a complex array of reglations and possible pit-falls. It is therefore understandable that it would be daunting for a Hire Company owner to venture into the European hire market without the professional support of an organisation such as HAE.

By visiting hireassociationeurope.com you will have access to specialist, real-time information in the form of the popular blog from the main Hire Association Europe (HAE) website. You can also follow the HAE on Twitter from this website, and this will give you invaluable information on what's happening in the hire industry.
