Commercial Drone Hire

Commercial drone hire can be very cost-effective and give you results, fast.  Using a qualified operator, drones can fly close to buildings, in an emergency, where access may not be safe, appropriate or cost-effective. You can hire on a daily, weekly or monthly basis.

Drones must only be used by CAA qualified operators and are subject to specific safety rules, underpinned by UK law. Regulations are contained within Air Navigation Order 2016 (ANO 2016) and if a drone is being flown for commercial operations;

  • Operators must have a licence even for one-off use and CAA permission.
  • Permission must be renewed 30 days before the expiry date.
  • Drone insurance is required that complies with EC Regulation 785/2004.
  • All relevant permissions must be obtained in advance so that any city or town areas, sites, and venues are aware of any planned drone activity.
  • Commercial drones must be flown at least 150 metres from congested areas, 50 metres away from people and cars and must not fly above 400ft.

What are Commercial Drones used for?

Commercial drones can be used for both routine and emergency work; inspecting wind turbines, checking pipelines, assessing the condition of many types of buildings, inspecting roofs, quickly assessing hard to reach or unsafe structures or for surveying land, crops and livestock.

Commercial drones can capture high-resolution photography or video footage that can be used for mandatory reporting, providing evidence or highlighting specific areas needing attention, useful for insurance claims or confirming compliance with building regulations.

I just wanted to pass on my thanks to yourselves and in particular Emily. She is always polite, friendly and professional and I must say of all the companies we deal all your staff are great and helpful.

Emily has just got me out of a dire situation today and has gone above and beyond (which she always does ) and I feel she needs to be praised for her commitment.

Please pass on mine and my colleagues thanks, she really is a credit to your company.

I just wanted to write and let you know how grateful I am that your staff are switched on and are always so helpful. In particular Leanne who recently helped me out of a very sticky situation regarding a skip exchange being requested for the incorrect site. She went above and beyond to make sure that we had skips in the right place and I was very impressed with how quickly she got things organised for us.

Balfour Beatty asked a national Platform supplier at 9:07 for a 14 tonne Tele-handler for delivery by 10 am the next day.

The best they could do by 3:25 pm was a 5.5 tonne Tele-handler.

Balfour Beatty then called Nationwide Hire at 3:30pm. We presented them with two options in 25 minutes.

Anon, Balfour Beatty
On behalf of our company I would just like to say what an absolutely fantastic service Nationwide Hire has provided so far and in particular Nathan Whitton.
Generally the whole team has been very polite, friendly and extremely helpful with an out-standing service provided to us. However Nathan we feel has bent over backwards to provide us with the help we need.
When dealing with Network Rail, we are requested to provide immediate updates etc when dealing with faults, and Nathan has kept us in the loop all the time when dealing with any works. He has returned calls when he said he would and even gone beyond and called to update when not even required, so going above and beyond.
So please accept this compliment to you all and the team

We will be using your services again and I have notified all of my colleagues about your services.
We continue to look forward to dealing with you again now and in the future
