Based in Onehunga, eight kilometres south of Auckland’s city centre, Hire Towers has been serving the greater Auckland area and surrounding regions since its establishment in 1962 and is known as a specialist in access equipment for a wide range of industries.

Hire TowersSince buying into the business 25 years ago, Hire Towers’ Director Kerry Farmer has been a driving force in maintaining the company’s stellar reputation and a key decision maker in purchasing the 83 JLG machines that make up the majority of the Hire Towers fleet.

“Hire Towers acquired its first JLG machine in 1994, a couple of years after I entered the business,” Kerry said. “We have 85 machines in the fleet now, booms and scissor lifts, and 83 of them are JLG – which says a lot about our belief in JLG equipment.

“We pride ourselves on our service and equipment being the highest standard, and guarantee our machines will complete the work efficiently to save our customers' time and money, and you can really only do that when you do provide the best.”

Delivering as they do equipment designed to make difficult access jobs easier, Hire Towers’ most recent fleet addition was the JLG 520AJ Articulating Boom Lift; offering fast lift speeds for increased work efficiency plus an industry-leading work envelope and capacity, it was the ideal machine to add to the hard-working Hire Towers fleet.

Along with the quality and performance of his many JLG machines, Kerry Farmer was also pleased with the service and spare parts support Hire Towers receives from JLG.

“We do have a service technician on staff, but primarily JLG does the servicing and they do a good job with that…their service and their parts supply is very good and we strictly use JLG parts,” he said.

For his part, JLG Sales Executive – NZ, David Morris, says JLG is extremely proud of the fact that the Hire Towers fleet is some 98%-JLG and pleased to be in a relationship with a fellow business dedicated to quality and outstanding service.

“Hire Towers is a great company and a great team to work with and our relationship is going from strength to strength as we work to meet their needs and support their promise of excellence,” David said.

Echoing David’s sentiments, Kerry Farmer said he too appreciates the Hire Towers-JLG partnership.

“We’re very proud of our reputation for service, on-time delivery and safety...and JLG helps us in delivering that,” Kerry concluded. “Our relationship with JLG…it’s good and we’ll stick with them.”
