Brief history of your operating experience?

I started operating machines in 2007 ranging from 21 tonnes up to 85 tonnes
for J. Mould in Reading.

I left after 4 years and worked for various companies and agencies gaining
lots of experience in all aspects of machine driving from demolition to
recycling to working on housing developments.

In 2018, I decided to take a risk and bought my own mini digger which led to
me starting my now successful business – On Your Marks Plant Hire. I work
as an owner operating digging out footings, driveways and garden
