5 reasons to choose Gibbons Drive Hire

If the worst happens and you experience a variable-speed drive failure in your electric motor-driven process, you need to choose the right provider to help. Following the launch of our new Drive Hire division, we’ve got five reasons why you should look no further than Gibbons for emergency VSD rental.

Immediate response and same-day delivery

We’re available round the clock via our 24-hour emergency number (07970 676272), so you can be assured of an instant response. A team of ABB-approved engineers and a fleet of vehicles are ready to deliver your hire drive to site in the shortest possible time.

Industry-leading ABB drives

Our hire drives are ABB units rated up to 400kW. ABB supply the most advanced VSDs on the market, and as an Authorized Value Provider, Gibbons has a wealth of expertise when it comes to drive selection, installation and commissioning.

Delivery, installation and commissioning

Gibbons offer a complete drive hire service, allowing you to resolve a VSD failure by using a single provider. Once our engineers have arrived on site with your hire drive, they’ll connect and commission it to get your application up and running as soon as possible.

Drives pre-programmed and ready-cabled

The cost of lost production means that every minute is crucial when replacing a failed drive. That’s why to save time on site and ensure your drive is ready for immediate installation, we can have it pre-programmed and ready-cabled for you.

Repair service available

While your hire drive is in place and keeping your process operational, we can repair your faulty drive – no matter what make or model – and re-install it at a convenient time for you.
