Boat manipulating kit needed

An acquaintance wants to buy the following kit - any pointers for a good UK supplier or someone selling used would be appreciated - Thanks!

2 x 10 ton toe jacks
A quantity of Skates with 10-12 wheels - c.5-10 tons rating each
A quantity of Twin Wheeled Castors - 5 ton capacity each

Bit of heavy shifting to do, apparently

More of a Diesel Man, surely?

Does yer man need to buy the kit or is it for a one off? hiring will be much cheaper, obviously.
