Nationwide Hire were contacted by Matt Jones, Red Bull sponsored, UK professional Mountain Bike athlete on the 14th April 2020 asking for help building his lockdown dirt jumps. Matt was struggling to find a supplier and thinking “should we actually bother with this, waste of time”.
Nationwide Hire managed to turn this challenge around in 3-days, leading to Matt’s latest dirt jump video being seen 400,000 times, adding to his channel’s massive 47 million view total.
Matt Jones had been building dirt jumps in his backyard, during Covid-19 lockdown for his YouTube Channel. He required 40 tonnes “as dug’ top soil with good clay content”, delivered in multiple 10 ton instalments, to stop trucks getting stuck.
The team at Nationwide Hire quickly used our extensive supply network knowledge to provide Matt Jones with exactly what he required, when and where he needed it.
“Nationwide Hire hooked me up with green fresh top soil which worked really well. You just call them up and they will find exactly what you need, in your area. They have been a godsend.” Matt Jones
