We're Utility Rentals and you're in safe hands


“We evaluated several companies before installing our hand dryers. Utility Rentals’ pricing was extremely competitive; although they were not the out and out cheapest, they offered us the best value for money for our requirements. I was also impressed by the sales service they offered – their attention to detail was excellent!”

With shrinking budgets in the education sector, buying new equipment for schools is not always a viable option, especially when high quantities are required. Consequently, many educational establishments are choosing to rent hand dryers via the flexible and affordable rental contracts Utility Rentals are able to offer.

Downsview Community Primary School, is dedicated to giving all of its students the very best. When it came to evaluating their hand drying methods, staff at Downsview were keen to acquire hand dryers that were both energy efficient and effective. And so, Downsview approached Utility Rentals who were more than happy to suggest a variety of hand dryers to meet their requirements.

Utility Rentals’ rental agreements are usually considered to be a revenue expense, enabling schools to reserve their capital budget. The payments are fixed and are due on the same date each year, so schools can easily plan their budgets accordingly. Duncan Edwards, Headteacher at Downsview Community Primary School, explains “We evaluated several companies before replacing our hand dryers; but as a school budget is very tight, we were not in a position to purchase them outright. Utility Rentals’ pricing was extremely competitive; although they were not the out and out cheapest, they offered us the best value for money for our requirements. In addition, I was impressed by the sales service they offered.”

Utility Rentals unbeatable rental contracts include delivery of the hand dryer, as well as installation to an existing electrical spur. In addition to this, each dryer is provided with a full parts and labour breakdown warranty for the duration of the rental period, protecting the school from any unexpected repair costs. Duncan said “We felt that the rental option was best for the school as it gives us flexibility. Plus, should we have a problem with one of the dryers, we simply contact Utility Rentals and they will arrange for any repairs required until the unit is back up and running again”.

By upgrading to energy efficient hand dryers, schools can save money and power, as well as reduce their carbon footprint. There are no paper towels to dispose of and washrooms can be kept clean and tidy. When asked whether Duncan would recommend Utility Rentals he said “Yes – the service and attention to detail was excellent, from the initial call to the final ‘How did the installation go?’ call! We were fully informed throughout the process and kept up to date with any developments or changes to the schedule. They gave us complete ease of mind. Thank you Utility Rentals for helping us to become more environmentally friendly and hygienic too”.
