Rollin’ on the river with our Ride on Rollers

Unlike Tina Turner, we won’t be rollin’ on the river. However we can provide you with rollers to hire so you can go rolling around your site, we would advise against doing this on the river though! Instead enjoy some relaxing punting along the river Cam to relax after a long day of constructing, digging or excavating.

A Boatload of Machinery

Cambridge is infamous for the historic Boat Race, one of the biggest boating events in the world. The contest between the rival Universities of Oxford and Cambridge takes place annually and attracts a global following. It is a gripping event for the city which is famous for its beautiful University, with the fastest recorded time for both the men’s and women’s races being set by Cambridge!

Cambridgeshire itself was founded by the Vikings, who battled their way through Suffolk and Norfolk to reach it. They decided to call the city home and became the rulers of East Anglia. The Vikings were well known for being incredible craftsmen, especially with their remarkable ships. It is clear from the buildings and landmarks in Cambridgeshire that the apple hasn’t fallen far from the tree, with brilliant craftsmanship being maintained in the county. To carry that legacy on we provide all the necessary machinery required to keep sites running and add to the fine craftsmanship of the county.
