About Us

Who are North West Tanker Hire?

At North West Tanker Hire, we believe in offering our customers the most comprehensive and cost effective tanker hire service.  A rapidly expanding, family run business, North West Tanker Hire have made a firm commitment to providing a superior tanker hire experience for all customers, and continue to invest in the most modern tanker trailer rental fleet, in order to offer the widest choice of the best equipment.

Our customers are rewarded with the peace of mind that comes from knowing you have reliable, specialist equipment for your project.

From our strategically located base at the former chemical works at Thornton Cleveleys, Lancashire, we operate a fleet of vacuum tankers, both artic and rigid, with capacities ranging from 4500 litres up to 33,000 litres, for the transportation of all liquid waste.

We are proud to offer our customers maximum flexibility, with minimum hire periods from only one week, and recognise the value of a prompt and personal service, so aim to have your tanker available within 24 hours for collection, or nationwide delivery.


For customers experiencing a shortfall in their own fleet, we offer the facility to hire a new, artic tanker trailer from us, which can be delivered directly to your location, and can be supplied with pipes and fittings to suit.

All artic trailers are fitted with donkey engines, and are supplied for immediate deployment on your Operator’s Licence.

Alternatively, North West Tanker Hire can offer customers the choice of a manned operation, whereby we supply the tanker, tractor unit and labour to carry out a task, and, as we have a bank of tankers without a distinctive corporate livery, there would be no conflict of interest when attending site as your subcontractor.

In addition to these artic vacuum tankers, we can supply rigid vacuum tankers for servicing locations where access is restricted.

Please see our tanker pages for further details on these, and our associated services.
