How long can I hire a tool for?

There is no limit to the length of time you can hire a tool for.

The average hire period is usually between one and two weeks, depending on the requirements of your job.

How much does it cost to hire a tool?

The cost of hiring a tool depends on the type and size of tool, as well as the length of time you need it for. Generally speaking, smaller tools such as drills or saws can be hired for around £27/day while larger tools such as Genie lifts start at around £100/day.

What happens if the tool breaks or malfunctions during my rental period?

If the tool malfunctions or breaks during your hire period, we will replace the tool as soon as possible. Please don't try to repair broken equipment as we have trained technicians for maintenance and repair work.

Q. How long can I rent plant machinery for?

Q. Can I operate the machinery myself or do I need to hire an operator?

Most small to medium-sized plant machinery can be operated by yourself, however larger and more complex machinery such as excavators or cranes will need an experienced operator. We offer both self-operate and operator-operated hire packages for all of our equipment.
