Tool and Equipment Hire Bristol

About Us

Welcome to Murray Hire Centre

John and Ann Murray moved from London to Yate to try and make a better life for themselves and their two children, Mandy and Ian.

The opportunity arose because a Bristol hire company wanted John to work for them, and employed Ann to do the Accounts.

As time went on they both thought, why not try going into Business for ourselves, with the experience that they both had, many years in London and Bristol, lets go for it, and thats how Murray Hire Centres was formed way back in 1982.

Their first Unit was on the Beeches Trading Estate off Stover Road, Yate, where they formed a nice liason with their customers, and soon got regulars coming in for a chat and a cup of coffee. As well any friendly advice they asked for about any job, big or small.

Ann and John sadly passed away in 2008 and 2015 respectively

Those we love don’t go away
They sit beside us every day
Unseen, unheard but always near
Still loved, still missed but very dear

Everyone is welcome, accounts or D.I.Y’s, we are only too happy to help out.

About eight years on, we found that we were running out of space, so we had to make the decision to get bigger premises, we were able to purchase a piece of land on Armstrong Way, Yate on which to build a Unit . Unfortunately, it was another two years before we got the planning permission we desperately needed, but big celebrations when we got it.

Our Business is a family concern employing son Ian, daughter Mandy and Granddaughter Kelly, son-in-law Keith and daughter-in-law Elaine, who ,with the good and hard working members of staff keep it all going. Working together to keep a happy, friendly and helpful team. Making it one big happy family.

Happy to be of good service to you!
