Tool and Equipment Hire in the UK

Whether you are a keen DIY hobbyist, a professional builder, electrician, mechanical engineer, grounds worker, joiner, plumber, or other trade contractor,  or someone who occasionally needs a particular item of equipment or a tool for a one-off task, the UK Tool Hire Directory gives you access to tool hire providers and suppliers across the UK offering everything you could possibly need.

You can hire tools for as little as a day, for a weekend, several days, or for longer periods if required, all depeneding on your individual needs and requirements.

We feature individual suppliers that specialise in certain types of tools - for example you can hire tools for carrying out building and construction work, gardening and landscaping, cleaning and decorating, for breaking and light demolition work, fixing, or simply for home DIY and decoration.

You can also hire products and tools for carrying out niche areas of engineering work - for example heavy machine moving and relocation work, or maybe metal fabrication and welding?

Plumbing equipment is another area that provides a need for tool hire, with products such as pipe bending machines, pipe threading machinery, and pipe freezer machines being regularly needed by the trade.

Access equipment is another area of equipment hire that is steadily growing year-on-year, this is being driven by factors such as the “working at heights regulations” where safe working at height is seen as a top priority. Here popular items of equipment being chosen for rental include access platforms and towers, safety steps, and more recently the portable podium step unit.

For larger projects powered access equipment is often required, and within this range are items of access equipment that include booms, cherry picker units, and all sizes of scissor lift platforms.

At we aim to bring together all these different suppliers into our UK Tool Hire Directory, providing a one-stop shop for hire customers, making it easier than ever for you to find whatever tool and equipment you require for the job in hand.

Hiring tools is a convenient and very cost-effective alternative to buying certain tools outright, and with the use of our UK Tool Hire Shop Directory, it has never been easier.
