This About Us page lets you know that Trek Hire UK has been successfully supplying groups and individuals with good quality trekking equipment for the past 13 years.
Trek Hire UK Ltd was built on the back of a charity trek that set off from these shores at the beginning of the Millennium to conquer Kilimanjaro in Tanzania.
Barry Gill (founder) instigated the trek and enrolled the services of 10 of his friends to set about raising funds for his local charity. They had to buy all of the essential equipment which included four season sleeping bags, thermarest mats, rucksacks, duffle bags and walking poles to name just a few items, which as you can imagine, cost a pretty penny as there was no hire solution available at that time.
After months of preparation and planning the group finally set off on what turned out to be the adventure of a lifetime.
On their return, most of the group decided that, although demanding and enjoyable in equal measure they wouldn’t take it up as a ‘hobby’ and they were therefore left with a dilemma as to what to do with the equipment that they had bought
Solution: Due mainly to the fact that at that time eBay didn’t exist, Barry decided to buy everyone’s equipment, put together a simple web site and see if he could hire it out to other people who were embarking on their own adventure and who in turn also wanted to keep the costs to a minimum.
In the 13 years since, we have now put together a very comprehensive list of equipment that will enable trekkers to not only keep the costs down but let them enjoy their respective treks in the knowledge that everything they hire from us is exactly what they need to succeed.....
