What’s X-Hire all about?
SXS has launched the new X-Hire platform. This revolutionary system is now running, taking the internet by storm and helping producers, event managers and technicians do amazing things for their events and budgets.
X-Hire is a bespoke online hire platform that gives users access to an incredible amount of technical data and imagery but more importantly access to SXS’ immense stock of production equipment.
SXS holds the UK’s broadest stock of event production equipment and this is now available for dry hire.
The platform has been developed in-house by Head of Dry Hire, Joe Sandford-Hughes. I was brought into SXS to fulfil excess capacity and asset utilisation through the means of dry hire says Joe. There are some really good suppliers in the market already but what I found surprising is that, despite being a in tech industry, none of the incumbent suppliers had a strong platform for accessing information, compiling costs and seeing historical data. We thought to ourselves Amazon, Hilton hotels, Easyjet, tesco and even the local yoga studio have platforms where users can see all the data they need – yet our industry lacks this. So we built it.
Equipment holdings, manuals, weights, power consumption, pricing, billing and live chat are all available on the X Hire platform. Visit the platform here:

SXS immense stocks of production equipment have been developed over the last 20 years and funding from delivery high-level production solutions. For this reason X-hire does not need to solely fund assets which means lowered prices to customers.
