We used Rockthorn for a 12m Cherry picker for resealing windows and painting a mural on the side of our commercial building in Portslade, the customer service all the way from enquiry to pickup was phenomenal, I simply could not have asked for better, and at such a competetive proce point, we were pleasantly surprised when I came to discussion of costs! Thankyou so much to all the team who helped us and we will definitely be coming back if we need another hire in future!

I have used Rockthorn many times over the last year and have found them to continually deliver, we get good prices and great service taking the hassle of organising hire kit to site away from me, allowing me to get on with the project management. The team really excelled yesterday when we had an urgent requirement for some diesel tower lighting, the requirement only came to me mid afternoon and the kit was delivered to site less than 3 hours later to a very grateful client, magic :)

A brilliant and accommodating event partner for a music festival in London, June 2022. Adam Farrow was nothing short of excellent in his guidance and outstanding customer service not to mention his patience as we sorted the various admin issues. Highly recommended

I needed a 30m cherry picker and was lost at how to go about sourcing this and rock thorn made the process so simple. Always available to answer my questions and vehicle turned up on site early and was a pleasure to use. Highly recommend this company and special thanks to Adam farrow for making this process so easy and stress less
