Why choose Best at hire?

A wide choice of equipment

Best at hire is proud to be partnered with Hire Station plc - one of the UK's largest suppliers of tools and equipment for industry, construction and DIY.  With over 70 national branches strategically located across the UK, Best at hire are pleased to be able to offer our customers a convenient "Click and Collect" service located within the Hire Station depot.  If you can't collect from one of these local depots then Best at hire's national delivery service means that we can deliver your equipment directly to your door or site, and then collect it from you afterwards for a small fee of £7.50 + vat each way (no matter where you are in the UK). That's cheaper than most national tool hire competitors!
