You can basically hire almost anything you need nowadays. This is particularly true for tools, machinery, and equipment. Today, you have the option of hiring tools, machinery, and equipment, whether it’s for a simple DIY project at home or a big construction project for your company. The UK has a good number of shops where you can hire tools as well as plant hire service centres spread across the country.

In general, the different tools and equipment you can lease or hire include tools for trade, tools for DIY projects, gardening tools, and even machinery and equipment for construction. Here are some of the most commonly leased or hired tools and equipment today:

  • Do-it-yourself tools

Obviously, do-it-yourself tools for hire are for those who are taking on simple projects either for their home or for a small business. These do-it-yourself tools can include tools for decorating, painting, grouting, tiling, and polishing. There are specific tools for specific tasks. For instance, if you are planning to remove wallpaper or paint, you can simply hire an electric paint or wallpaper stripper. Other do-it-yourself tools for hire include scaffolding, which comes in very useful when you are refurbishing or remodeling. There is also floor equipment for hire, such as sanders, and different kinds of saws that can cut through plastic, wood, or metal.

  • Construction machinery and equipment

There are a range of plant hire services in the UK, but it is in your best interest to hire a service that is in your local area. If you have a project in Preston, for example, then you should go for a plant hire Preston service – this not only saves you time; it saves you money and hassle as well. Also, if you hire a service that is locally-based, you can easily verify their reputation and reliability. When it comes to machinery and equipment, you can hire almost anything you need, from cranes built for rough topographies to the most advanced excavators. If this is your first time hiring plant machinery and equipment, remember this: it is often divided into several categories – power access, lifting, transporting, compaction, and extraction. If you have a construction project, then you need machines from each category to complete your project. Examples of lifting machinery and equipment include cranes, lifts and hoists, while examples of extraction machinery and equipment include excavators (both tracked and 180-degree ones), and 360-degree excavators as well.

  • Gardening tools

On a lesser scale, you can also hire gardening tools nowadays so you don’t have to spend on tools that you might only use once. Some common tools for hire in the garden include lawn mowers, electric rakes, and chainsaws, as well as hedge trimmers, shredders for compost, and more.
