GSE rental and operating leases

We can meet short-term requirements through our rental services and longer requirements through an operating lease from individual motorised and non-motorised GSE, to an entire fleet. Renting equipment can be more cost-effective for customers if required for short periods and cut investment risks.

Sale of used GSE and associated services for airports

Once the initial period of rental has ended, clients have an option to buy motorised and non-motorised GSE from TCR. TCR’s highly qualified technicians and mechanics ensure that GSE is able to meet specific industrial demands.

Refurbishment services are available depending on requirements, including routine maintenance and restoring equipment to factory condition. All equipment has been maintained in accordance with OEM standards and is thoroughly inspected for safety before delivery. All units will arrive ready for service.

Fleet management solutions for airports

TCR provides cost-effective solutions to increase, replace, back-up or build a new GSE fleet. Equipment is safe and reliable, with a long service-life and quick delivery times.

In order to provide a service that is both economical and high-quality, it is vital to have a cost-effective fleet.

It is vital to have substantial experience in GSE and comprehensive information of how all equipment is used. For this reason, TCR ensure it invests in the most advanced technologies for data collection and management.

Data gathered includes maintenance and service history, safety accreditation, and usage hours. All information collated is then used by customers to optimise the performance of their fleets.
