Forbes Rentals Acquires Rental Accounts from Stuart Darling Ltd.

Forbes Rentals is delighted to announce their recent acquisition of the rental accounts from Stuart Darling Ltd. The accounts will be readily absorbed into our existing business and will benefit from our first class engineer response service.

We have known the directors of Stuart Darling for over 25 years and both they and we are long established family companies with a strong customer service ethos. They were established 40 years ago and their customers will have the consistency of remaining with an independent company, and will benefit from our 93 years’ industry experience. Their customer base was centred around the Milton Keynes and Bedford area and will continue to receive a first class service from our expansive network of field engineers. The AV and appliance rental equipment mirrors ours so we have all the requisite engineering knowledge, spare parts and replacement machines readily available.

Acquisitions such as these are intrinsic to our business strategy and the synergy between our two companies makes this a very straightforward investment. Stephen Edwards, Finance Director at Forbes and our key contact for companies throughout the acquisition process, says “We are thrilled to have purchased the rental accounts from Stuart Darling. This is the 55th company from which we have acquired contracts so we are well placed to carry out a seamless transfer. We look forward to continuing to deliver all of their customers with a consistently high standard of customer service.”

Our full range includes robotic and cordless vacuum cleaners and iPads to our product range which also includes: laundry and dishwashing appliances, mobility scooters, televisions and home cinema, fridges, freezers and ovens. We use Feefo as an independent party for collating reviews and feedback from our customers and this year we once again attained Gold Trusted Award, the highest available standard — with an average score of 4.8/5 across all of our reviews from last year.
