Kennards Hire celebrates its 70th birthday in 2018 and how it all began is now a legendary tale.
Walter Kennard started it back in Bathurst in 1948 when a customer walked into his small rural supply and machinery business and asked if they could borrow a new Lightburn concrete mixer rather than buy one. Wally famously said, “I won't lend it to you, but I'll hire it to you.”
And so it began.
Kennards Hire opened its doors in Goulburn in January 1995, following the acquisition of G.K.N. Rentals in the A.C.T. The acquisition included a small hire company (then called B.J. Hire) which became what is now the Goulburn Branch.
Kennards Goulburn has everything the DIYer needs to get their place spruced up for Summer and the holiday season – hedge trimmers, ride-on mowers, fans, tables and chairs – through to heavy duty access gear and earthmoving equipment. If you need to hire it, chances are that they will have it.
Branch Manager, John Bill and his team are locals. They’ve been around a while. They have a special rapport with their customers, most of who they know on a personal basis.
“Like all Kennards Hire branches, we offer quality equipment, competitive pricing, fast and efficient deliveries and pick-ups, all with a smile and friendly chat,” John Bill, Branch Manager, said.
“We’re locals and are all well-known in the community. We really just enjoy helping our customers and getting involved in local events. A couple of our favourites this year were the Relay for Life, Windellama Small Farms Field Days and the Color Me Fun Run.”
With the business being around for 70 odd years, Kennards is still proudly family-owned. They have never aimed to be the biggest hire company around, but the best.”
Year on year, Kennards Hire continues to improve its range of products and services, delivering innovative equipment hire products to its customers making sure they never compromise on their promise to make your job easy. Any job. Small to Big.
