Our history and evolution

Ridgway Rentals Ltd was originally founded by Bob Jones as RAJ Mechanisations Ltd.

In 1999, the company underwent a strategic restructuring to focus on promoting the self-drive rental of construction equipment. This change allowed us to cater to a wider range of customers and offer greater flexibility in meeting their equipment needs.






Meeting all your construction needs

We boast a diverse fleet of over 800 units, comprising a wide range of construction equipment.

Whether you require a 1.5-ton mini excavator, a 55-ton 28m high-reach demolition machine, or any equipment in between, we have you covered.

We have also established strong partnerships with customers not only in Europe but also in the Middle East, Australasia, and the USA. Our extensive industry network allows us to provide quality used equipment to customers worldwide.

Working toward a greener future

When it comes to fuel consumption, we understand the importance of making environmentally conscious choices in our industry. With the pressing issues our planet faces, it is crucial to make a change.

Here are our top five tips to save fuel and reduce your carbon footprint:

  • Use eco mode when the machine load is light or during low use.
  • Regularly check AdBlue levels to maintain optimal engine performance.
  • Minimise idle time by turning off the machine when not in use.
  • Plan machine moves efficiently to reduce unnecessary travel.
  • Pay attention to idling and eco mode prompts for fuel-saving recommendations.
