There could be many different reasons why you might need to hire tools or plant equipment. Most people have a power drill or cordless drill/driver handy for drilling holes and screwing in screws but if you need to dig a trench in your garden for some new drainage you may not be lucky enough to have a mini digger or dumper lying around to help you out so in this instance, hiring these items is what you need to do.
On the counter side of this argument you may decide it makes more long term financial sense to buy a ladder so that not only do you have one readily available when you next need to clear gutters you have them for any other jobs that involve working at height and the. If used quite regularly, the cost of hiring each time will eventually out-weigh the expense of actually buying them.
Going back to our original scenario of digging drainage, it's all very well buying a hammer or set of ladders, but laying out £30,000 on a mini digger that you'll use once is, quite frankly, ridiculous and this is where tool hire services come into their own. For those one-off jobs that require specialist equipment that you could never justify buying.
To summarize why hiring tools is a good idea:
Hiring a tool can be much cheaper than buying a tool you may only use once
You can hire tools for as long or short a period as you need them
Hire tools and plant equipment is regularly serviced and kept in tip-top condition
Full instructions included with all hire tools and equipment
Saves wear and tear on your own hand tools and power tools
Hire Tools and Health and Safety
There is always an inherent danger when hiring tools, especially large items such as plant equipment.
Picture this - You have never driven a dumper before and suddenly you have a set of keys to a brand new one sat right in front of you - Whoop-whoop you shout as you jump in, floor it and go right through the neighbours fence and end up their pond, wrecking the dumper and causing £00's of damage to the fence and pond.
Ok, we jest slightly, but it can easily happen. Fortunately whenever you hire goods they will be accompanied with a full service certificate, confirming that they are indeed safe to use and also a leaflet containing full safe operating procedures - Find out more here.
