Do your machines have non-marking tyres?
Only our electric range have standard non marking tyres. However we can offer tyre covers to fit the diesel range if your job requires specific non marking tyres.

If you have a diesel machine then you will be charged for the diesel you use at the end of the contract. If you fill the machine back up then there will be no charge. You will also be charged if the machine comes back damaged or if the machine comes back dirty.

I have been able to build a strong relationship with Bella Access over the last few years and they have provided a fantastic service, their product knowledge of machines is great, if there is something that is not listed within their product guide then they will go all out to find me the correct machine for the job. It’s great to always have a friendly voice on the end of the phone.

I have been working with Jason and the team for over a number of years and have always had a great service from them, their machines are on site when they say they are going to be and I find that their machines are reliable and in good condition.

I always like to know who I am dealing with each time I call and like the fact that am not getting put through to a call centre where the person on the other end of the phone does not know who I am. They always go that extra mile for us.
