St Christopher’s CE High School
St Christopher’s is a Church of England High School based in Lancashire. It’s a school that recognises that each member of the school community is an individual with specific needs and so offers pupils equal access to all areas of the curriculum. Consequently, it is imperative for the school to provide pupils with the best equipment possible, but not just inside the classroom.
In order to provide a safe, modern environment throughout the school, St Christopher’s approached Utility Rentals after having used them already to rent a variety of white goods for their Food Technology Department. However, this time it was regarding rental of the Dyson Airblade hand dryers.
The Dyson Airblade hand dryers are able to offer several benefits to schools over traditional drying methods, including a fast drying time, low running costs, reduced carbon footprint and a variety of hygiene advantages. After previously purchasing a number of Dyson Airblade hand dryers, St Christopher’s were well aware of these rewards.
“The new sixth form building needed to be fitted out with Dyson Airblade hand dryers” said Peter Crewe, Project Manager at St Christopher’s, “They are extremely effective and reliable, with no mess or waste as with paper products.”
As Utility Rentals are able to offer the Dyson Airblade hand dryers on a flexible rental contract designed specifically for schools, St Christopher’s was able to acquire several more of the Dyson Airblade hand dryers at one time, without using their capital budget.
Nonetheless, Peter says it was not just the convenience of having annual payments, rather than one large upfront payment that attracted the school to the services Utility Rentals offer: “We chose Utility Rentals having had previous experience of renting from the company. We found they were able to provide the full service we wanted and not just a piece of equipment. Costs were also competitive.”
Utility Rentals handled all aspects of delivery and installation of the Dyson Airblades. In addition to this, each dryer rented by the school is covered with a parts and labour breakdown warranty for the full duration of the rental period.
Peter said: “We have always had very effective and supportive service from Utility Rentals. They offer quick delivery and a quick follow up service. We are now using Utility Rentals for a number of other items including cleaning machines. I would be happy to recommend the services of Utility Rentals as a cost effective method of keeping equipment up to date, supported by a friendly and efficient team.”
