At APDS, we offer Drives 2 Go: the APDS drive hire service – tailor-made to meet your production needs and avoid downtime.

Whether your inverter drive has broken down, you need to address critical downtime problems, or you simply want to evaluate energy savings before committing to a long-term investment, hiring a drive makes practical and financial sense.

Drives 2 Go: the one-stop hire drive service

Whatever size drive you require, we will be able to meet your needs.

The APDS Drives 2 Go hire service gives you immediate access to our extensive fleet of variable speed drives, ranging in size from 22kW to 800kW. Our drives offer a variety of IP ratings (IP21 and IP54) to suit the surroundings and may be wall-mounted or used freestanding, as required.

With our expert team on hand to help you to set up and commission your hire drive, you needn’t worry about having to set aside time for installation, and we can even supply additional cables for hire if required for easy connection.

With a same day delivery service available, you can be confident of receiving your drive at the earliest opportunity, eliminating disruption and inconvenience for your business, and giving near-instant access to fantastic energy and cost savings.


Why choose our Drives 2 Go hire service?

Purchasing a drive is, for many businesses, the solution they need long term, but there are many situations in which drive hire is a logical short term alternative, including:

Your existing drive requires an upgrade but you cannot afford a period of downtime.
 A hire drive may be more cost-effective than a purchase.
 Your project is running to challenging deadlines and you need to slash lead times.
 You only require a drive temporarily.
 Your existing drive is faulty or awaiting repair.

Hiring a drive is reliable, giving you access to the latest Variable Speed Drive technology, without the need for a capital investment in new assets.

If your existing drive is faulty, we can collect it when your hire drive is delivered and bring it back to our workshop for testing, repair, or replacement. We will arrange for the repaired or replacement drive to be brought back to your premises at a convenient time so that it can be exchanged with the hired unit.

Flexible short and long-term rentals are available to suit your requirements.
