Roadsweeper Terminology

As with all companies, Internet marketing has become a huge part of JPM Contractors Ltd day to day running of the company. Part of this marketing campaign is the inevitable need for a website that can be found by our customers looking for our services.

This has lead me on the quest for relevant keywords for our main core of activities. This has lead in turn to a long list of different words used to describe our offering. While i can fully understand that people refer to items and services from a broad perspective and that names used for services may vary, i had no idea of the exhaustive nature of the list that i would be confronted with for such a relatively simply service as Roadsweeping.

With this in mind i thought i would share some of the names that i have uncovered and offer our readers the opportunity to add to this ever growing list.

Below are the names that have come from a small group of people in the office (4 to be exact):

  • Mechanical Road Sweeper
  • Mechanical Road Sweeper Hire
  • Mechanical Road Sweeper Rental
  • Mechanical Roadsweeper
  • Mechanical Road Brush Hire
  • Self Drive Road Sweeper
  • Self Drive Road Brush
  • Johnston 600 Road Sweeper
  • Johnston Road Sweeper
  • Roadsweeper Rental
  • Operated Roadsweepers
  • Operated Road Brush
  • Road Sweeper
  • Roadsweeper
  • Sweeper Hire

  • 7.5 tonne Roadsweeper Rental
  • Scarab Minor Hire
  • Scarab 3.5 tonne Hire
  • Scarab Minor Rental
  • VT650 Road Sweeper Hire
  • Johnston VT650 Road Sweeper Hire
  • London added to all of the above as a variable
As you will see from the list above (and that’s not all of them) it’s quite a wide and varied range of different terminologies for the same service, the sweeping of a road by a mechanical machine.
Lets have your thoughts, please add a comment below.

Johnston Compact Sweepers

JPM Contractors Ltd is proud to announce the addition of Johnston Compactor Sweepers for self drive hire through it’s sister company UK Sweepers Ltd.

These smaller road sweepers are ideal for public areas due to the low noise of the sweeper. Compact sweepers are also highly manoeuvrable making them extremely versatile in areas with large amounts of street furniture.

One of the most attractive features of the Compact Sweeper is the ability to tip the waste collected into standard height wheeled bins, avoiding the need for costly journey’s to and from prearranged tipping sites.

With this amount of sweeping power in such a small road sweeper, Trigger will soon be out of a job!

Below is the promotional video from Johnston Sweepers with more information regarding these powerful, versatile sweeping machines.

Operated Road Sweeper Hire

People often ask what is Operated Road Sweeper Hire.

The simple answer to this question is that the company providing the road sweeper also supply a fully qualified operator as part of the hire along with the machine.

Some companies specialise in the plant hire aspect only which is simply the road sweeper without an operator. Allowing the hiring company to use their own operator. Some companies prefer to work this way.

JPM Contractors Ltd provide fully trained and vetted operators with all road sweeper hire.

While this appears to be the more expensive option on the face of it, a poor operator can cause extensive damage to the road sweeper which can result in a greater cost for the entire period of hire.

Any damage caused to the road sweeper by the operator supplied by JPM Contractors Ltd is covered under the hire agreement. Keeping overheads to a minimum.

A recent unnamed company recently ran up a repair bill of £2678 for damage caused to a hoover box. The untrained operator made the school boy error of reversing the vehicle with the hoover box in the “down” position, not something that a fully trained operator would do.

The only other point worthy of consideration when using Road Sweeper Hire with or without an operator is that a fully trained road sweeper operator will also be much more efficient at carrying out the task required and therefore a time saving aspect will come into play, which in turn will allow the hire period of the road sweeper to cover larger areas quickly and without any down time.
