Trevor’s Top Tips For Tool Hire

From high-end excavators to your everyday drills, you can guarantee that you’ll be hiring tools for most jobs but are you taking the right precautions?


We’ve had a natter with our Regional Tool Hire Director, Trevor Chapman, to get the low down on the best steps to take when hiring your tools.


Spill the beans, what are your top tips for tool hire?

It really comes down to communication. Our priority is always to help you get the best materials for your job and by giving us as much information as possible helps. This is even more important for tool hire. Imagine forking out for what you think you need only to realise you haven’t ordered the right equipment – nightmare! Taking the time to have a quick discussion with one of the team can set you off on the right track.

The tool should do all the hard work for you. Why break a sweat when you can gain some handy tips to make the tool work harder for you? It’s important that you’re comfortable using the equipment and you fully understand how to operate the machinery.

All our branches will offer demonstrations with every hire to make sure you’re achieving the best possible result. That’s why we only hire out top of the range products to ensure your tasks are completed in the safest and most efficient way possible.


How do you keep safe on-site when using tool hire?

Health and Safety when using construction tools will always be vital. There are some easy ways to avoid any dangerous situations and keep everyone safe on-site:

  • Assess the area – make sure there’s room to operate the machinery and that the area is in a good working condition
  • Equipment – we know its Health and Safety 1.0.1 but everyone should be wearing the correct PPE
  • Take your time – start the task in good time so you aren’t rushing or cutting corners


How can people get their hands on some juicy deals?

Luckily for you, we have frequent seasonal promotions, online and in branch, so you get the best value deals on the tools you currently need. As the winter months set in, keep an eye out for lighting and heating offers that are set to go live in the coming weeks!
