Hiring Tools From A Shop

Home Page What Can I Hire Hiring Tools From A Shop Benefits Of Plant Hire Get Listed   Although each tool hire shop will have its own rules and regulations for the hiring of its tools, there are a few general procedures that you should be aware of before you arrive at a tool hire centre.

Firstly, tool hire shops will usually hire tools by the day, but may offer larger or more popular tools on an hourly rate. It is best to check the exact rate with the tool hire company you choose before agreeing to hire the equipment.

The next, and perhaps most important, thing to bear in mind is safety. You should ensure that you have the right protective clothing to wear when you are using certain tools, such as visors, ear defenders, a helmet, ballistic trousers, ankle protectors, ballistic gloves and boots with steel toecaps. Most tool hire companies will also hire out protective clothing along with their tools if you do not own the right gear.

It is also worth asking an assistant in the tool hire centre to show you exactly how to use the tools and equipment you are hiring, so that you use them safely and correctly. In addition you may want to check whether the equipment has been serviced and tested since it was last used, and exactly when it was last used.

Once you have used the tools that you have hired, make sure you return them on time to the tool hire shop or else you may be charged for a late return. If you need the equipment for longer than you first thought then get in touch with the tool hire shop as soon as possible and arrange extra hire time. In addition, you should also make sure you clean the tools before you return them.

There are many different tool hire shops and centres around the UK, including national chains such as Hewden tool hire, Jewson tool hire, HSS tool hire, Brandon tool hire and Speedy tool hire, and you can find a tool hire shop near you by using our comprehensive listings section.
