Silent, Diesel and Petrol Generators in Edinburgh

For generator hire in Edinburgh visit Best at hire, your local tool hire centre.

If you are working with electric power tools or other on-site equipment in a spot where you cannot access a mains supply, you will need to buy or hire a generator. For short-term or one-off jobs generator hire often makes the best financial sense – and by choosing a leading hire company you can have peace of mind that you will enjoy competitive hire prices and reliable, modern, well-maintained machinery.

We supply electric generator hire to trade and domestic customers including diesel- and petrol-powered generators. These suit many different applications including home use, marquee use, remote / industrial site use and IT environments. 

Our generator hire range 

Our growing range includes:

  • Marquee generators : It is essential to achieve the right power supply when you are catering for an outdoor or marquee event to power lights, catering appliances and possibly some heating devices. 
  • Silenced diesel generators : Our diesel generators comply with the latest noise regulations and are very powerful and reliable – e.g. the 10Kva model can work for up to 11 hours continuously, producing 110v or 240v. 
  • Sensitive IT generators : We stock small, lightweight, petrol-powered generators designed for use in sensitive environments such as where you need to run laptops or desktop computers – providing the stable voltage required to run these safely. 
  • Back up generators : If you are running essential equipment and suffer a mains power supply, you will experience major disruption – but if you put in place a standby or backup generator you will have a power supply to fall back on in the event of a mains outtage (or a main generator failure). 

It's easy to hire generators online or by phone

You can simply go ahead and hire online if you have found the generator you are looking for, or you can call us for some guidance on 0344 288 8088.
