Cronyism. Lot's of excellent companies out there that keep their heads down and run a good professional business, but simply wouldn't even waste their time entering something that means nothing.

Finding it hard to understand why NWP would be named in the Access Rental Company of the year award, they have made redundancies, lost customers by dozen under invested in equipment and cut rates the bare minimum to try and mitigate some of the losses when everyone in access should be trying to increase rate, and are pretty much a shadow of the company Loxam acquired. That sounds like the type of company that should be winning hire access company of the year, lets all vote for NWP.
