Our Builds


Charles Wilson Engineers started in Harpenden in 1979 and more than thirty years later, they are still a privately owned rental business, committed to offering their customers the best equipment, backed up by a high level of personalised service. Their ethos has never changed, they have simply expanded in order to offer their products and services to more people around the country. They now offer plant hire and tool hire not only in London but across all of the South East, South West, the Midlands and the North West of England.

They have hire shops located nationwide, from London, to Birmingham, to Leeds. Nationwide, you can visit their branches in order to receive a range of services, not just plant and tool hire. You can also purchase a range of products from them, including safety wear, drill bits, and similar items.
