Ardent are the biggest telehandler supplier to the UK housing Market, supporting the UK’s £100bn housing sector, and its 2.1 million jobs, by forming true collaborations with leading house-builders, which span the full lifecycle of their developments.

From affordable homes to exclusive executive residences, from brownfield and regeneration sites to quiet country locations, Ardent understands the range of challenges facing the growing homebuilding industry. We’ll help you to rise to those challenges with innovative, strategic hire solutions that make a huge difference to your budget and your timescale.

Ardent has all the equipment you need to clear and prepare your site, move and manipulate materials during the build process, and finish your development to the highest standards. And we’re constantly extending and expanding that range, investing in the very latest construction equipment, such as state of the art telehandlers, to keep you at the cutting edge.

We’ll help you maintain momentum with next day delivery, rapid response servicing and full health and safety support to reduce lost time. Plus we’ll add value to every hire, with expert services such as fuel management, telematic tracking and error-free paperless delivery and collection.

We know that you’re not just building homes, you’re creating communities, and we’ll work with you to develop the good will of that community through sustainable low emission, low noise alternatives and efficient, effective machines that get the job done on time with the minimum of disruption.

And it doesn’t end there. Ardent continues to support the housing industry long after homes are completed, through maintenance, repair and refurbishment of existing properties, for builders, housing associations and private landlords.
