GR8 Tool Hire: The Basics of Hiring Tools


Tool hire is a great way to save money and get the job done faster. If you need anything from a drill to an electric saw, there are plenty of options available for you in the UK. From leading brands like Makita and Bosch, to budget friendly options, there's sure to be something for any project! GR8 tool hire can offer everything from cordless drills to plant hire that do all the work for you - we even have scaffolding kits if you're working at height. GR8 Tool Hire is your one-stop shop for all things construction related!

The benefits of hiring tools

When you work with GR8 Tool Hire, you save time and money. It means that if there is a job you need done, you don't have to spend your money on the tool. And it also saves you time as well. You don't have to go out and buy a new drill if yours is broken; you can hire one for a day or even for days at a time without having to worry about the cost.

The benefits of hiring tools include:

Hiring a tool saves you time on two fronts. Firstly, if there is a job that requires you to use a tool, the best thing to do is hire one. That way, you can get it done quicker and have the time left over to finish other tasks. Secondly, if your own tools break or stop working properly (perhaps because they are old), then all you have to do is hire another one for a day or even for days at time without having to spend money on buying an expensive tool as well.

The GR8 Tool Hire is a UK company that offers the best and most effective tools for any job. Their prices are affordable, they have a variety of brands from Makita to Bosch. Although they offer these great services, there are some common mistakes made in the process of hiring tools.

Mistakes often made when hiring tools

One mistake that people make when renting or hiring tools is not stopping to read all of the terms and conditions before making any decisions. By reading and understanding everything you are agreeing to, you can avoid being surprised by hidden fees or miscommunication. The second mistake is assuming that because you're paying a rental fee, you can keep the tool for as long as you want. This isn't true; if it's rented out twice while you have it and the person after you needs it, then you can be charged for failing to return it on time. And finally, always keep an eye out for any damage that could happen while using a tool. If there is any damage done to the tool during your lease, you may be asked to pay for the repair yourself or even incur additional fees.

Getting started with GR8 Tool Hire is easy. Simply fill out the form on our website to request a quote or get a call back. We will then get back to you quickly with an affordable price and delivery options.


If you're in the market for a drill, saw or any other tool to help with your next project, GR8 Tool Hire is here to make it easier. When you work with us, we'll provide anything from Makita and Bosch tools all the way down to budget friendly options that are sure to fit any size job! In addition, by hiring one of our tools instead of purchasing one new yourself, you can save time on two fronts: firstly because they will be delivered quickly and secondly if something happens to your own equipment while using them. That means less downtime for keeping up with other tasks. If there's ever an issue at anytime during your rental period (for example if someone needs the tool after you) then don't panic! Just contact our friendly customer services and they will find another solution.

This is what happens when you hire our JCB Scissor Lift for your warehouse

The customer hired one of our GR8 JCB scissor lifts to help them access areas in their warehouse that they were struggling with. Access equipment makes it so much easier to access hard to reach areas compared to trying to climb up and down ladders or scaffolding, not to mention safer.
