Everything You Need To Know When Hiring Tools


When you’re looking for the right tool for your job, it’s important to consider what it will be used for, who is going to use it and how often it’ll be used.

The first step in deciding which tool is best is to understand what you need from it. Are you looking for something that will help improve your workflow or do you need something specific? Do you have a specific task in mind or are you trying to find something that can solve multiple problems? this will help devise whether it’s a specific tool you need or a multitool that offers a solution to various needs and jobs.

Once you know what type of tool you need, it’s time to find one that fits your needs.

There are many different types of tools and equipment that you can hire. These include things like rotavators, commercial vacuum cleaners, cutting and grinding tools, landscaping machines and drilling tools. It is important to choose the right tool for the job you are doing so that you can be sure it will be done to the best standard. Should you require further information on choosing the right tool for your project and needs, then be sure to contact us and we will be happy to help.

It is important to know what type of tool you need before hiring them as this will help save time and money in the long run. Again, as a professional tool hire company, we will be more than happy to help find the correct tool for your job, simply give us a call for more information.


Different Types of Tools

There are a number of different types of tools and equipment that are available for tool hire.

Basic Tools

Hand tools are available for purchase at most hardware stores and online. They include screwdrivers, pliers, hammers and saws. You may also need a few other basic tools such as an Allen wrench set if you’re looking to do more DIY repairs around your house or business. You don’t often hire these kinds of tools as they are usually used on a regular basis. 

Electric Tools

Electric drills are fantastic for installing cabinets, plumbing fixtures and electrical outlets in your home or industrial site. However, they can be expensive to buy so it’s worth considering renting a drill from a tool hire company such as ourselves. 

Electric screwdrivers are another option for doing lots of small tasks around the house or site but they can also be pricey if you don’t want to buy one new each time.

Handheld Power Tools

Handheld power tools are great for working on large projects like remodelling bathrooms or painting walls. It’s important to check the weight limit for these types of tools as well as the length of time that they will be used and if it’s worth buying them on a regular basis over hiring them instead.


Machines such as sawmills and presses are designed for use in factories or construction sites. They’re often very loud, but sites usually are with the amount of work and construction going on. Be sure to browse through the range on our website to see more about the machines we offer for hire across the UK.

Consider How Often You Will Use The Tool

If you’re planning on using the tool for a few days and then will no longer require it, it makes sense to high it rather than pay to have something you won’t use again. This will not only help to keep costs down but reduce the amount of wasted space on site too.

The best way to determine which tools are right for your job is by going through a few common scenarios. 

The first thing you have to do is decide what kind of work you’re doing. Are you looking for the best tool for precision work, or one that can handle a wide range of materials? Do you need water-resistant tools, or will the material be exposed to water? If you need assistance with this part of your decision making, then please be sure to contact us and we will be happy to help. This will also allow you to ask any further questions regarding which tool is best for you.

Once you’ve determined what kind of tool is best for the job, it’s time to look at the different types of tools available on our website. You’ll want to find something that fits into your budget and gives you enough options for any situation that may arise during your project.

Tips For Hiring The Right Tool:

Look at the price of the hire. The first thing you should do when looking for a new tool to hire is to look at its hire price. This will give you a breakdown of how much it will cost to hire the machine or tool and what duration of time is most suitable for your needs and budget.

Look at customer reviews. Another way to find out what kind of tool or machine you require is to read the reviews. This will help to show which kind of tool is best for your needs and read the reviews from people who have already used the tool.

Speak to the hire company. One of the best ways to find out more about an individual product or which is best for your specific needs is to speak to the company you’re hiring from.
