Get the job done with DIY tools for hire

Date posted: 30 July 2010

There are always those necessary home improvement jobs that we all have to do once every year or so. These tend to involve buying expensive or specialist building tools and equipment that can be used for that one job and that job alone, tools that, for the rest of the year, lie dormant and neglected in your garage or the dark recesses of your garden shed.

Buying tools, like hedge trimmers, carpet cleaners and paint strippers to the average DIY enthusiast has always felt like throwing money down the drain, particularly if the item is for a specific job that may never have to be repeated, or at best done every 12 months.

However, that is all about to change as Best at hire has teamed up with a number of UK tool hire companies in the South West covering Bristol, Welksham, Chippenham and Swindon, that hire DIY tools and equipment specifically for these jobs. For consumers that regularly hand over their credit cards to DIY stores like B&Q and Homebase, they can now hire the DIY equipment they need and benefit from a cost-effective alternative to buying.

Renovating your family home? Building an extension may require tools such as floor sanders, heat guns and wallpaper strippers. So, before you buy think about hiring the equipment you need because once the job is done and you are left with a beautiful new home, you can sit back and relax knowing that by hiring DIY tools you got the job done without it costing the earth.

Carpet cleaning and floor polishing are also sporadic jobs and investing in specific equipment appears relatively pointless. Cleaning the stubborn green moss from a patio requires a pressure washer, which aside from being fairly costly also takes up a huge amount of storage room, so keeping one with the intention of using it once or twice seems pretty inconvenient. Damp problems from flooding, which have been particularly prevalent recently in the South West of England, may require domestic or industrial dryers or dehumidifiers, which again are not items that many of us regularly use.

Best at hire has UK tool hire suppliers that offer a huge range of DIY equipment for rental including companies that hire specialist garden tools like backpack sprayers for treating fences and panels, as well as landscaping machinery such as safety harnesses for tree felling or excavators for moving earth and preparing ground. Such projects can add value to your home and hiring tools for these one-off jobs ultimately keeps costs down. Furthermore, seasonal jobs such as fixing guttering, cleaning windows and painting your house require equipment such as ladders and scaffolding, which can also be hired.

Such intermittent home improvement tasks can be made easier on the wallet if consumers focus on hiring tools that can be conveniently delivered and collected from their door for a nominal rental fee.
