What forms of ID do I need for a plant hire cash sale?

Plant hire cash sales refer to hiring out plant equipment, such as construction machinery, to other businesses or individuals in exchange for a cash payment. Cash sales is a common practice in construction and other industries where companies may need to use specialised equipment on a short-term basis and want to avoid opening an account.

Plant hire companies may accept a few different forms of identification when engaging in plant hire cash sales. Some options could include the following:

    1. Driver’s license: A driver’s license is a common identification used to verify a person’s identity. It includes information such as the person’s name, address, date of birth, and photograph.
    2. Passport: A passport is a government-issued identification document to verify a person’s identity and citizenship. It includes information such as the person’s name, photograph, and date of birth.
    3. Debit or credit card: Most plant hire companies will take a deposit from your debit card to cover the week’s hire, transport, fuel and VAT.
    4. Utility bill: A utility bill is often a requirement as proof of address.
    5. Business registration: If a business is hiring the equipment, proof of your business registration will be required.
    6. Plant hire insurance: Proof of hired-in plant insurance is required and must cover the value of the plant hired. The plant hirer can offer you short-term hired-in plant insurance, and it’s typically worked out at an additional 15% of the weekly rate for the plant. The percentage can vary, but it is often around 15%. so if the weekly rate for the plant equipment is £300, the insurance cost would be £45 (15% of £300).

Plant hirers may offer various types of plant equipment on a cash-sale basis. Some examples of equipment that may be available for cash sale hires could include:

Mini diggers
Skip loaders
Site dumpers
Small telehandlers
Compaction rollers
Power barrows

Plant Tip:
Typically, plant hirers only offer cash sale hires on smaller equipment.
