Tool hire is the perfect opportunity to complete a project to a high standard without investing in expensive power tools. You can hire a tool for days, weeks or months in order to get the job done. Quite often, there are unique power tools that are perfect for specific, niche tasks on-site, that you won’t need to use in your everyday kit. The ability to hire, instead of buy can save you money without sacrificing the quality of your work. To help you through the process of using a borrowed tool, we’ve created this guide.
Choose The Right Tool For The Job
Whether you need a compactor, concrete saw or heavy-duty jackhammer, you need to hire the right tool for the right job. Not only will it save you money, but it will prevent damage to hired tools. For example, if you choose a cordless hammer drill to break up steel-reinforced concrete, it’s likely to take you a long time, and possibly burn out the tool. A heavy-duty, 240v jackhammer will make short work of what it’s designed to do. We recommend you assess the job at hand before rushing into tool hire and consult a professional for advice if you’re unsure.
Read The Owners Manual For Your Tool Hire
The right tool is not the only requirement of correct tool usage. There’s a right way and a wrong way to use a tool, even if it’s perfect for the job. The owner’s manual will contain all the relevant information you need to ensure safe and appropriate use. Not only this, but there may be settings or attachments you weren’t aware of that could be convenient for other jobs around the site. We advise reading this information before you get to work, to ensure the tool stays in working order, and you can complete your project efficiently.
Store Your Tools Appropriately
Tool hire storage is essential for several reasons. Firstly, many power tools have electrical components that will seize, spark or break in the presence of excessive moisture. If you leave a tool of this style in the rain overnight you could be looking at a hefty repair fee when returned. Not only this, but certain power tools are expensive and targets for theft. We advise keeping all your hired tools in a dry, safe place, such as a locked garage, to avoid these issues.
Cleaning & Maintenance
Once you’re done with your tool hire, it’s important to return it in the same condition as you received it. This means cleaning any debris, dirt or dust with a clean brush and damp cloth. Additionally, it’s important to pack it away properly to avoid damage in transit and to mitigate any missing attachments. This way you won’t run into any cleaning or replacement fees on your invoice.
