What Does A QCR Rental Include?

Free delivery and installation

We offer free delivery of our rented recycling equipment to the majority of the UK with only some more remote areas where this isn't currently possible. Our highly experienced and accredited team of technicians will also install your chosen equipment and provide training to get you off to a flying start. You needn't worry about deciding on the most efficient location for it as this can be discussed at our free, no-obligation site survey service.

Free ongoing operator training for your team

We recognise staff and processes continuously change in a business, therefore we offer free baler and compactor operator training at any time during your contract. This training can be in person, over a video call or by viewing one of our online training videos and will always be organised at a time to suit you. When opting for baler rental, we'll also supply you with the necessary method statements, risk assessments and training certification to ensure your operators can use the machine efficiently and safely.

Upgrade your equipment during your contract with no administration fees

Some companies charge administration fees if you need to make changes during your contract but the good news is, QCR doesn't! We understand that every business has the drive to expand, and with expansion comes more waste. If you outgrow your baler or compactor, you can upgrade to a larger baler, or take on additional equipment without having to start a new contractual term or pay an administration fee.

No hidden costs when renting a baler

At QCR, our hire plans include free site planning (helping you to choose the most efficient location for your equipment), free equipment installation & delivery by one of our trained engineers, free operator training throughout your contract, risk assesments and regular maintenance & service checks at a convenient time.

Inflation-proof fixed cost hire terms

In general, our baler hire terms are 2, 3, 4 or 5 years. However if you need a shorter term, we'll try to find a solution for you. Whatever length of contract you choose, the price you pay remains fixed throughout your contractual term. No sneaky annual price hikes here!

UK Recycling Equipment hire service

For waste, look no further than our nationwide compactor or baler rental services which we've been providing in the UK since 1999. We have 3 hire centres across the UK enabling us to offer machine rental to the majority of postcodes in the UK. Our hire centres are not open to the public however, in most cases we'll be able to offer your business a free equipment trial at your own site on completion of a site survey with one of our team.

Collection of baled recyclable materials from your hired baler

If you don't already have arrangements in place, we can introduce you to our trusted network of local recyclers and waste carriers who can collect your bales of waste. Depending on your location, bale quality, bale size and quantity, this bale collection could free of charge. Better still, for customers producing large quantities of good quality bales you could even get paid for them. We can provide guidance on the current market prices for bales and the ideal specification to maximise your rebates at a free site survey.

Fast repair response and reduced down time

Our equipment is reliable and durable but in the unlikely event that your machine stops working, we have a dedicated service team who are ready to take your call. Most issues can normally be sorted over the phone but if a repair is necessary we will aim to be at site within 72 hours to get it back up and running. We're also Safe Contractor accredited, giving you added reassurance that we take health & safety seriously.

Customer service from our UK team of Waste Experts

From time to time, one of our nationwide representatives will contact you to ensure you are getting the best from your baler rental and to answer any questions you may have. You can also speak to us anytime during office hours where there is always a Waste Expert on hand to help with any questions or queries. Whether you choose to hire a small recycling baler or a large horizontal machine from us, the level of service you receive is the same.

Frequently Asked Questions

1. How do I hire a cardboard baler?

Please contact our team.

All our baling equipment is listed on our website but we recommend you get in contact with us to arrange a completely free and no-obligation visit from one of our team. They will help you review our range of options to help you decide which baler to hire from us as it will depend on your waste volumes, how it will be powered and budget. In most cases, if you're based in the UK, we'll offer you a free baler trial. Once we've quoted you a price for cardboard baler hire and the likely savings you'll make on your waste collection costs, we'll leave you to decide if you wish to proceed.

2. Do you have to hire a different baler for different types of waste?

Circumstances depend, our team can provide you with the ideal solution based on your waste sources.

In general, when you rent a waste baler for cardboard waste it'll also be able to bale your soft plastic waste, in effect giving you two waste balers for the price of one! However, there are some exceptions to this including baling hard plastics (eg fruit trays/plant pots etc), cans, drums where you may require a more heavy-duty machine. There are also some waste types that require specialist baling machines, for example, polystyrene. The good news is you do not need to navigate this decision making process alone as our Waste Experts are here to find the right solution for you. If your waste type is slightly unusual, we can also do some material trials with our baling machines to check which one will be more efficient.

3. Are all your balers available to hire?

Yes, all of our equipment can be hired.

We have small, medium and large baler and compactor hire options, not forgetting our range of mill size balers available to hire for larger businesses. We are providing baler hire to thousands of customers in the UK, with small baler hire being one of the most popular options available. We have three distribution centres across the UK enabling us to offer baler hire to the majority of the UK (with only some postcodes that logistically we cannot offer the same level of service to). Due to the number of hire customers we have, we can also offer great deals on ex-rental used cardboard balers which have been fully refurbished by our team.
