Groundforce launches e-commerce capability

13 Jan
E-commerce site launched by Mr Cropper, Piletec and Sandhurst is believed to be the UK’s first.

Specialist construction services supplier Groundforce has launched what is believed to be the first e-commerce site for excavator attachments hire in the UK.

The site gives all customers the ability to hire excavator attachments online at any time of the day or night, making hires simple and convenient for customers. Many of the attachments are available for next day delivery when ordered before 3pm.

Signing up to the site allows customers to access their personalised hire rates, with payment available by purchase order. Product pages are updated constantly to ensure the latest information is available and to optimise fast and easy checkout.

The new e-commerce site covers the complete Mr Cropper, Piletec and Sandhurst portfolio for customers in the civil engineering, plant hire, housing, construction, utilities, demolition and rail sectors.

The development also includes a new ‘My Hires’ section for all Groundforce customers, allowing them to easily track orders online, view live and previous hires, and to extend hires if required.

Groundforce Mr Cropper, Piletec and Sandhurst director James Burchell said: “The launch of our e-commerce capability is testament to our commitment to the continuous development of our business by actively promoting innovations in technology as the market demands.”
