The debate around whether it is more beneficial to buy new equipment and tools or to simply hire them is not a new one, and it's not going away any time soon.
However, there is an array of reasons why you might consider hiring anything from a concrete grinder to a dumper for those professional construction and tradie jobs, or for work around the home.
Here are our top five reasons why hiring has the upper hand in this debate.
Picking up your equipment one day then dropping it back off at your local Kennards Hire centre is simple enough, and one of the best things about it is that you won't have those tools cluttering up your home in between uses.
This is especially useful for those who don't have a lot of storage space, or want to ensure the kids don't have access to potentially harmful tools if they get into the wrong cupboard.
Unless you're using these tools on a regular basis, it is often cheaper to buy a piece of machinery for a short period rather than pay for the full price of a hire in one go.
You also don't have to pay for costs associated with running the machinery as time goes on, such as repairs and general cleaning expenditures.
Similarly, you don't have to pay for the equipment to be maintained, and you also don't have to do any of that work yourself.
General repairs and cleaning are undertaken by staff at Kennards, so you don't need to worry about making sure that the machinery gets some TLC over the winter months.
There are plenty of tools out there, and as they all require their own sets of safety measures and instructions, it's good to know that you'll have an expert on hand to teach you how to use the equipment if you are unsure.
The team at Kennards will also be able to point out any uses that you might not be aware of, such as helpful tips and tricks that only a seasoned professional would know!
Since Kennards organises hire tools for professionals around the country, its job is to make sure that modern, efficient tools are always on hand for rent.
This means that rather than buying a piece of equipment that may soon be outdated because of new technologies, new products will always be available when you need them.
