About TFM Hire Supplying Equipment To You

TFM Hire, originally trading as Thorpe Farm Repairs, was established in Thorpe on the Hill to service neighbouring farms.  On or around 1976 it was relocated to its current location in Whisby, Lincoln from where it has grown from strength to strength.

Throughout the 1990’s the farm repairs started to take a back seat and Thorpe Farm Repairs started to establish itself as TFM Countrystore stocking anything from equestrian supplies to dog food.

TFM Hire was established when the first hire manure spreader was purchased.  Which opened the demand for equipment hire, particularly aimed at farmers, the agricultural sector or those in rural properties who are most likely to benefit from one-off hires than owning equipment.

The family-run business, now mostly managed by Nikki, with Frank’s very important input is now a thriving country store and hire shop. The company has evolved even further in the last year years to where it is today and it will continue to change for the coming years.

Certainly wouldn't like to single out one particular person or member of staff. Always willing to go the extra mile and the hire equipment is always good and serviced so does the job unlike other hire companies out there. The hire prices are very reasonable as well great company great service keep it up.
