Step Inside Our Innovative Welfare Units, Without Leaving Your Desk

Eco10 Welfare Unit

Mobile welfare units are often simply considered a matter of Health and Safety compliance. But the truth is, the facilities you hire can be a defining factor of your project, setting the tone from the get-go and determining what kind of environment your site will become. 

The best mobile welfare units provide a comfortable space for workers, making them feel safe and valued – and that directly impacts staff wellbeing, motivation and productivity. So choosing the right welfare pod is not merely a case of reading about the unit’s capacity or ecological efficiency – it’s about understanding how the units add value

This is exactly why we pride ourselves on providing a fully immersive 360° virtual tour that allows you to step inside our welfare units. Because while our range is designed to cover all needs, and you can pick and choose depending on your site requirements, it’s still vital that you understand the kind of environment you’ll be creating.   

Why we created the immersive 360° virtual tour 

In an ideal world, we’d let every customer come and test out our welfare unit in person – that direct experience has always been a big part of our customer service. 

But let’s be honest: we don’t live in an ideal world right now, and that means we need to find new ways of showing our customers exactly what it is they’re hiring. 

We pride ourselves on having the largest, most modern and innovative fleet of mobile welfare units in the UK, so it’s only fitting that we solve the problems COVID has presented in an equally innovative way. 

How does the virtual tour work?

We’ve designed the virtual tour to give you as much control as possible: you can click on the ground to ‘walk’ through our showroom, and you can control the view of the camera so it really feels like you’re moving around inside the range of welfare hire products

We’ve ensured you can get an inside look at the ECO7, ECO10 and ECO14 mobile welfare units. That means you can see the various innovative features – like the smart water WCs, separate offices and XL spaces – up close and personal. And as you explore, you’ll notice various information icons: you can click on the info points to read in more detail about the feature you’re looking at.  

We want you to see what makes our ECO units unique

There are lots of things we want our customers to know about the unique benefits our mobile welfare units offer – in particular their positive ecological impact. But there’s only so much you can read before it starts to feel abstract. 

We hope being able to actually immerse yourself in our welfare units will help you truly understand how they can positively impact your site. 

So step inside our innovative welfare units for hire, and see how it feels: 

Did You Know We Also Lease Access Vehicles?

Kelling Group Access Hire Units

For many organisations, buying access vehicles is simply inefficient: the cost of maintenance grows rapidly over time, and the hefty investment makes it financially challenging to upgrade to new vehicles when the moment comes. 

An alternative you may not have considered could be to lease your access vehicles, giving you the best combination of quality, flexibility and long-term security possible, whilst spreading the vehicle cost over time.

However, not everybody realises they can lease essential products like vehicle mounted access platforms or pole erection units. So we’ve put together this short guide to help you understand how leasing with Access Lease works and what benefits you can expect.

How leasing works

Leasing access vehicles is similar to short-term hire, but spans a longer period and is typically at a lower average monthly cost. You decide what deposit you would like to initially pay, followed by regular monthly payments throughout the term of the lease. At the end of your contract, you simply return your vehicles and decide whether you’d like to upgrade to a newer model.

This is ideal for those who currently own their vehicles and want to replace them, but find the cost commitment of brand new vehicles out of reach.  It’s also great for those who are used to short-term hiring and wish to get more control over their long-term finances.

Here are three key benefits our clients see when leasing access vehicles from us:

Three key benefits of leasing from Access Hire

1.  Get the best products cost effectively

The best vehicle mounted access platforms can be expensive, especially if you are borrowing to fund, or using cash reserves which could be alternatively used to help grow your business.  This can lead to many organisations having to settle for second best. Leasing enables you to access the most up-to-date, modern  products, without the cost barriers associated with buying. You get the quality you need for a price you can manage.

This also means you can upgrade to a new model when your contract is done, without any excessive balloon payments to worry about. So, you will never risk missing out on exciting new technologies or falling behind the competition. 

2.  Manage your money more easily

Leasing allows you to spread the cost of your access vehicles , ensuring your income always keeps up with your payments. This provides you with the stability to do long-term budget planning, and ultimately make your operation run more smoothly.

Many of our clients also find they are able to deduct the full lease rental cost from their taxable income or claim capital allowances on the asset cost. Such savings pile up across a full fleet, unlocking the potential for far greater financial efficiency.

3.  Fully inclusive safety and maintenance support

At Access Lease, our lease contracts include full maintenance coverage, meaning we ensure your products are fully compliant with all regulation and safety standards. We also provide 24/7 support to ensure you are never left waiting around for help or the technical assistance you require.

Not having to worry about booking inspections or critical work means you can simply focus on your projects, freeing up valuable time and resources in your business, taking pressure off your management team whilst providing you with peace of mind.  This makes leasing vehicles from Access Lease a major time and cost saver for your business.

So don’t delay, get in touch today. Our team are ready to discuss your needs and design a bespoke plan to best suit your specific requirements.

Groundhog Day Is Over: Try Something New This Year

Groundhog Unit Hire -

Do you ever feel like you’re living the same day on repeat? Like it’s Groundhog day, all over again?

Well, you’re not alone: recent data shows that UK construction sites are not making nearly enough effort to innovate or introduce cutting-edge tech into their processes. And the result is sites that feel like they’ve barely evolved in the last twenty years.

At Kelling Group, we’re dedicated to changing this: our fleet of mobile ECO welfare units are the most innovative on the market, and we continually invest in incorporating the most exciting new features, so that they remain best-in-class. Changing Groundhog Units for the better.

Most companies find that innovation pays for itself many times over. Yet investment in state-of-the-art equipment appears to be falling. 

The proportion of UK construction companies actively involved in innovating has fallen by 11% in the past couple of years, according to the ONS.

And that’s at a time when we’re seeing unprecedented pressure being put on firms to improve their environmental efforts and become more economically efficient.

Innovation should be instrumental in making this happen: innovative mobile welfare units and lighting can actually reduce carbon emissions, lower service costs and boost firms’ bottom-line.

But that’s not all they do: they also help revitalise your site, improving staff wellbeing with improved facilities and internal space, ultimately creating a more positive working environment in the process.

And what could be more welcome in 2021 than a significant refresh?

Take a look at Kelling’s truly innovative mobile welfare hire facilities

Not only is Kelling’s fleet ofECO mobile welfare facilities the UK’s largest – it’s also the youngest. With over a decade of experience, we’ve developed specialist expertise in innovative welfare products with our own proprietary design and unique look and feel. And that means we continually source the best and most exciting new features available, to ensure our clients never have to settle for second best.

Take our ECO7 Mobile Welfare Unit: it has been designed specially to increase both employee wellbeing and eco-efficiency. It offers 20% more internal space, and runs on hybrid power that dramatically reduces fuel consumption. The smart water system further reduces site operational costs and carbon footprints with fewer services required.

You can see for yourself here, with our fully immersive 360° virtual tour.

So if you’re looking for a fresh start, let’s move on from Groundhog Day and try something genuinely new and innovative this year with an ECO friendly mobile site cabin from Kelling group,
