iSeekplant is a business that is remunerated by plant hire companies paying for us to market their business to project managers and generate earthworks project leads for them using our online plant hire portal. We therefore, have a duty to prioritise our paying members over our free listings. The system gives priority to our paid up members first, HOWEVER – iSeekplant will ALWAYS do what is best for your project: which means, if there are not enough paying members to service your enquiry, we will allow the free listing suppliers to quote to ensure you get the information, and plant you need.
In some cases, customers who are free listings will submit their plant rates via iSeekplant's Projects Team and we will pass them onto you.
