Test and Measurement Hire Ltd offers a hire service which is second to none. Our test and measurement equipment can be supplied the next working day (or even same day if required) and is the most cost-effective option on the market. Our products cover Electrical Power Monitoring, Electrical Testing, Fiber/Fibre Optic Testing, Pressure Measuring, Temperature Measuring, Calibration, Power Supply/Frequency Conversion, Portable Appliance Testing, Cable Testing & Fault Finding, Electrical Recording, Environmental Monitoring, Flow Measuring, Power Analysis Services, Remote Visual Inspection (RVI), Battery Cell Testing, Circuit Breaker Analysing, and many more.

We also have a cutting edge range of calibration instruments and professional software enabling us to offer an instruments re-calibration service including automatic recall of test equipment and traceable certification. So that we can offer an even greater range of stock and services, Test and Measurement Hire has recently acquired Direct Instrument Hire, a leader in its market. Both companies are QA registered to ISO9001, and are committed to offering an excellent service. Our comprehensive supply means that the busy Commissioning and Electrical Engineer has a one stop source for all of their equipment needs.

We are committed to a long term strategy of growing and developing our business so that we can supply engineers all over the UK and beyond. This is why we have plans for additional branches up and down the country, as well as overseas. Test and Measurement Hire now stocks test equipment manufactured by market leaders such as Dranetz, Omicron, Fluke, Megger, Seaward, T & R Instruments, Elcomponent, Olympus Industrial, FLIR, CEL Casella and many, many more. We also have distributorships with several leading manufacturers, and we provide all equipment quickly and cost-efficiently.  Our customers’ needs are the most important thing to us. This is why we pride ourselves on offering a personalised customer service ethos within both our businesses, ensuring that we continue to offer expert guidance to the customer, whatever his/her technical level. Placing the customer first is paramount to our success, and we will never stray away from these core values. This is why we have significantly grown in a relatively short space of time, and this is also why we maintain close business relationships with our clients.

Our philosophy on customer relations saw us awarded “Start Up Business of the Year 2002” by our local borough of Warrington.  After moving to a larger site in Burscough, St Helens, we now offer an even greater range of products and services than when we first set-up business. This is a sign of our intention to provide all your test and measurement instrumentation needs. We constantly invest in these products and services in order that we continue to supply only the best Test and Measurement instruments. In early 2001, we further developed operations in the UK Offshore Gas & Oil market by opening a branch in Aberdeen which is fully supported by our head office in Burscough. A range of Instrumentation rental, sales, calibration and technical services are available from this office. 

The capital investment we have made has enabled us to extend the range of equipment for hire, especially in the fields of Energy Consumption and Environmental Monitoring. Despite the phases of growth we have been through, we still retain our customer focussed hire service benefits by offering long term hire discounts, free calibration certificates which give traceability to National Standards, free consumables for the duration of the hire contract and a free downloading service when using the software we provide to accompany our equipment. To provide our clients with complete management of their equipment, Test & Measurement Hire also offers an Instrumentation Calibration & Repair service on- and off-site.
