5 reasons why it’s better to hire construction tools – not buy

15 August 2016

To buy or hire… that is the question. Whether you’re a construction company, or just an individual looking for specialised equipment for a home renovation project, having access to the right tools for the job is important. In many cases, buying new tools for a once off project is expensive – which is why tool hire from a company such as Talisman Plant and Tool Hire makes sense.

Cost effective

If you only need a specific tool for a once off project or for a limited amount of time, the cost of hiring compared to the cost of buying is much lower, which reduces unnecessary expense.

Better quality

Construction rental companies stock a range of the best brands of tools and equipment. High-quality tools are expensive to purchase but comparatively inexpensive to hire.

Reduced storage space

Construction equipment – especially large machinery – requires storage space. If you rent rather than buy, you don’t have to worry about where you are going to keep your equipment when you’ve finished using it.

No maintenance

All power tools and equipment require some form of maintenance. The larger and more complex the tool, the more maintenance required. Hiring reduces the cost and hassle of ongoing maintenance.


Every tool or piece of construction equipment produced leaves behind a carbon footprint. Hiring tools rather than buying them means that fewer tools will need to be produced, reducing long-term impact on the environment.

Talisman Plant and Tool Hire offers a variety of power tools and equipment for rent. For information, contact us today.
