Our Hire Customers

  • We are proud to work with a number of key players in London and around the UK including Vinci Group, Siemens, Doosan Babcock, HTC Wolffkran as well as many branches of the UK Police Force, Military divisions, shopping centres and local Government. Read a selection of comments and testimonials from some of our long-standing customers:
  • Working with our customers


  • In all industry divisions, supporting communications between you and your employees is important in maximising efficiency, thus resulting in greater customer satisfaction.
  • We welcome enquiries from all industry sectors in London, whether it’s for a short term or long term two way radio hire.
  • Here are some of the sectors we have worked with:
  • Hospitality & Leisure, Security, Utilities & Power, Construction, Local Government, Education, Warehousing and Short Term Events (these will be clickable).

The construction industry is SFL’s biggest market sector within the UK, with many of these projects taking place in London. Since 1997 we have supplied, maintained and partnered some of the largest construction firms in the industry for digital radio hire, including Vinci Group, Costain, Carillion, HTC Wolffkran, Renaker Build and Mace.

Examples of SFL Mobile Radio working together on construction sites

  • SFL’s hands-free crane radios play ‘vital role’ on HTC Wolffkran sites
  • Next day mobile radio delivery to Canary Wharf development
  • Hands-free crane radios used on Tottenham Hotspurs development
  • SFL develops bespoke crane hands-free radio system
  • Costain chooses SFL mobile radio for Immingham bypass project
  • Hands-free crane radio on construction sites
  • In addition to standard two-way radios, our design engineers have developed a sophisticated crane hands-free radio system, which has successfully been adopted as a safety tool by many of the UK’s tower crane and crawler crane providers.
  • The crane radio set-up which employs a Motorola platform and utilises digital DMR radio technology offers crystal clear radio transmissions and increased radio coverage, whilst reducing interference and background noise.
  • The hands-free radio system allows the crane operator to fully concentrate on crane operations on a construction site, whilst maintaining contact with their lifting team, critical for safe lifting operations.
  • The crane hands-free radio is available in two forms; a single and double. The double option is for multiple cranes on site where a ‘crash’ emergency radio system is used independently and two separate radios are required. Both options are approved by Ofcom for use within the UK.

Radio equipment hire for short term events is another popular sector in London. Whether it’s a sporting, music, conference or carnival, SFL can provide a short term personalised radio solution to make sure that your event’s communications run smoothly and efficiently, in order for you to concentrate on making the event a huge success.

Whatever your budget, we can offer Ofcom approved analogue simple two way walkie talkie communications to a full digital radio network with trailer mast for increased radio coverage requirements all within minimal notice period.

We only stock radios and accessories from the most recognised manufacturers including

  • Motorola
  • Hytera
  • Kenwood 
  • Icom

Continued commitment investing into our hire department has created a fleet of over 11,000 units and this is rapidly growing. And for your peace of mind, our equipment is one of the youngest fleets of hire radios within the UK.

As well as 2-way radios, we also have a full range of earpieces, headsets, lapel microphones available for hire, please see our accessories page for more information.

We are more than happy to carry out a site survey in order to check you receive the necessary coverage across your site. If a greater coverage area is required, we may need to employ a repeater or a sequence of linked repeaters into your radio system. Repeaters are also available to hire.

We offer a free one week trial period on equipment, so you are able to evaluate your radio equipment in its planned location.

In order to access a dedicated frequency, a radio licence granted by Ofcom is required by law. Licensed radios have a larger power output and so offer increased range and coverage. Licensed radios are generally more robust, with clearer audio quality and the conversation more secure. SFL’s Ofcom licence covers all our equipment hired out, so the majority of our customers will not need to obtain an Ofcom licence of their own.
