The benefits of tool hire
To me when I think of tool or plant hire I think of gigantic machines
that scrape and impact, drill and crush. Times have changed. Hiring
specialised, or even ordinary tools, is available for even the most
mundane job now. Take for instance a ladder, it’s a tool yet not many
people own one, or if they do it is probably one that can’t help them
repair roof tiles. What a Hilti gun, that ingenious machine that shoots
out nails in the blink of an eye? It’s not a tool that people usually
keep in their arsenal out in the garage, but the use of one can take
hours and hours of time off a project. And to buy one for the use of
only one project doesn’t make sense at all.
What about tools? Angle grinders, orbital sanders, jigsaws? If you
haven’t got them and you need them, hire them!
Do you need to resurface your wooden deck, or re-seal your antique
oak flooring? Your choices in hiring range from something quite
small and adequate up to industrial sized machines that will remove
heavily coated areas while sucking up almost all the dust residue.
Even those pesky areas like edges, skirting’s or hard to reach places
like under stairs – you will be able to hire the perfect tool to do
the perfect job.
Maybe you need to pressure hose your deck before sanding? A pressure
washer is not something one usually has lying around, and to hire a
professional to do the job for you often doesn’t seem economically
viable. The hire of equipment alone without paying for labour can
mean hundreds or Rands savings at the end of the day.
If you are an avid DIY enthusiast with a limited budget or space to
store equipment, the option to hire simply makes perfect sense. From
cutting bricks and tiles, to jack hammers for breaking up that old
Perhaps you need to attend to your garden and need a chain saw to cut
down that overgrown hedge, a lawnmower or a weed eater to smarten up
your borders or even a leaf blower to tidy up your estate. Even a
wheelbarrow to cart away your hard work, you’ll find one!
Hiring elminates the cost and expense of buying, plus hire rates
include delivery, maintenance and installation, if need be. You use
it and return it, no hassles, no fuss.
Most Plant Hire and tool hire companies offer a full range of equipment
from burdensome concrete mixers to simple cleaning equipment, from ladders
to full scale scaffolding. Earth moving equipment, compactors, heavy duty
breakers, and compressors; welding machines, concrete finishing machines,
survey equipment and conveyor belts; water pumps and even specialised
saws for cutting into concrete.
Portable high pressure fire fighting equipment that can be put onto the
back of a bakkie and taken where it’s needed in hurry is no problem.
And, if you need a compressor for spray painting or for driving
pneumatic tools, you can get it.
