How Equipment and Tool Hire Can Help the Homeowner

Posted by: Carlo Rosales on 28 Dec 2016 | 0 comments

It is surprising just how many homeowners are actually into a spot of DIY when it comes to home renovations and repairs, and without the help of a tool and equipment hire company, many would be unable to carry out those much needed repairs. This essential partner would not only be an oasis for the handyman, these hire companies also supply the construction industry with many essential items. Let us examine just how the residential home owner benefits from their local hire company.

Power & Hand Tools

There are so many different devices, each with a specific purpose, and no handyman would have the entire collection, so hiring is the best solution whenever a tool is needed. Hammers, screwdrivers, and saws of all descriptions are available for short or long term hire, and a wide range of power tools means the work will be completed before the weekend is over.

Building Materials

Whether you are redecorating the spare room or building an extension, the wide range of construction materials would be more than adequate to get the project rolling, and with trade prices, you won’t find a better deal anywhere. Here are just some of the items you would expect to find in a trade supply company’s inventory:
  • Cement
  • Plywood
  • Nails and screws
  • Sealants
  • Waterproofing and sealing tapes


Working above ground level requires strong ladders, whether you are tree pruning or painting the side of the house, you will need something suitable and an established trade supplier would have an extensive range.
Irrigation and Plumbing Equipment

If you are completing a major landscaping project and require irrigation, your local supplier would have a range of pipes and fittings, so you can set up that water fountain next to the terrace. If you are adding to the water network, you would need certain items to do this successfully.

Car Overhaul

If you plan to restore dad’s old Holden, you can hire a comprehensive socket set, and any other specialised tool, such as an engine lifting block, spanners, pliers or grips. Mechanical overhauls go so much better when you have the right tools, so make sure you browse the site before starting work.

Sourcing and ordering the things you need has never been easier, and with an easy to navigate website, you can quickly order your items. At Direct Trades Supply, we have sheds full of materials and equipment, all ready to be used, and if we haven’t got it, we can soon source it.
