“Utility Rentals were a great help to the school and extremely professional in their approach.

Holmes Chapel Comprehensive School & Sixth Form College
Holmes Chapel Comprehensive School & Sixth Form College (HCCS), is a dynamic, innovative and ambitious school with a national reputation for excellence. Like most successful schools, HCCS sustains its success by regularly revisiting its values, vision, guiding principles and facilities to ensure it remains relevant in a world that is changing so rapidly.
It is vital for the school to provide up-to-date equipment for its students and staff. Offering courses such as graphics, resistant materials and food technology from Year 7 through to A-Level, the school’s Design and Technology faculty benefits from an excellent range of high quality resources, a number of which are supplied through Utility Rentals.
HCCS was already renting their cookers from Utility Rentals before the Food Technology department was refurbished. Gill Benning, HCCS’s Director of Business and Resources, worked closely with colleagues to determine the most cost effective way of acquiring new appliances. Gill highlighted, “We evaluated several different options, including the purchase of appliances, but with such competitive prices from Utility Rentals, it was a very easy decision to continue renting”.
Having built strong relationships with some of the UK’s biggest manufacturers, Utility Rentals have secured preferential pricing, geared specifically towards schools. And what’s more, the payments are fixed throughout the rental period; ensuring schools are protected against inflation.
Yet, it wasn’t just the great pricing that persuaded HCCS to continue working with Utility Rentals. “We liked the idea of the fully managed service Utility Rentals have to offer. Knowing that we have a team of specialists on hand at all times, to arrange delivery and installation, not to mention the removal of our old appliances, is a huge benefit for us.” explained Gill.
Gill continued, “The biggest advantage of renting however, is the full parts and labour breakdown warranty we receive as part of the rental agreement. It makes excellent business sense to know the equipment is covered for the lifetime of the appliance, rather than having to search for a repair agent every time a fault occurs, as we would have to with appliances purchased outright.”
Utility Rentals are already used by thousands of schools and provide a simple and cost effective method of acquiring equipment within the education sector, via renting. When asked if she would recommend Utility Rentals to others, Gill replied, “Utility Rentals were a great help to the school and extremely professional in their approach.
The delivery and installation were smoothly carried out and the team at Utility Rentals were in touch throughout to ensure all went according to plan with no problems. I would most definitely recommend Utility Rentals to other schools, not just for their great pricing and rental packages, but also for their excellent and friendly service!”
