After more than 35 years Flints is saying goodbye to our last connection with Walworth as we close our hires arch at the Elephant & Castle. Our hires customers will now be serviced from our main warehouse in Deptford.
Unfortunately, there is not room for all our hires stock at Deptford so we will be taking offers on ex-hire equipment at two open mornings on Thursday 17th and Monday 21st June from 8.00 am to 12.00 pm. On offer we have both SpeedDeck & Megadek staging, truck winches, access equipment -including a tallescope & an access tower - and numerous ancillary pieces. Delivery within the London area can be arranged, and no reasonable offer will be refused, but it is all on a first-come first-served basis.
Why not come down and grab a bargain? You will find us at Arch 177 Robert Dashwood Way, London SE17 3PZ which is just off the Walworth Road and a five minute walk from the Elephant & Castle tube and railway stations.
Please be aware that our Trade Counter is remaining closed for the time being, but we are hoping to re-open in the not-to-distant future. In the meantime you can of course order online, by email, or phone and either collect from our Deptford Warehouse (must be pre-arranged), or have your items delivered. We apologise for any inconvenience caused.
Raw material shortages
Customers may be aware from media coverage of global shortages of raw materials effecting all sectors of the economy.
These shortages have primarily been caused by the pandemic both directly, and indirectly through the knock-on effects to the shipping industry. Even where there is availability, prices are rising sharply as a result.
Flints have been warned by many of our suppliers of forthcoming price rises and potential interruptions to supply, and we wish to warn our customers in turn that we expect lead times and prices to increase, and advise customers to take this into account when planning for the re-opening of the theatre and live event industries in the summer.
