The respected IPAF Rental+ quality mark shows that we operate to the highest standard and have been independently audited by an ISO 9001 lead auditor, within the last 12 months, to meet the most stringent standards of training, advice, equipment and customer satisfaction.
Silver accreditation confirms that we employ good practice and comply with the requirements laid out by the FORS Standard. By achieving FORS Silver accreditation our fleet is proved to be compliant with the CLOCS Standard for Construction Logistics and with TfL’s WRRR (Work Related Road Risk).

It demands collaborative action to prevent fatal or serious collisions between vehicles servicing construction projects and vulnerable road users: pedestrians, cyclists, and motorcyclists.
