Nobody wants to return to a job after a couple of days and rip everything apart, only to start again because it wasn't right the first time. It's frustrating and can be a serious sapper of time, especially when you think about how much easier it all would have been if it had been installed correctly in the first place.

You need to make sure things line up the way they're supposed to, that equipment is always in the right place at the right time, and that everything is safely being transported. Without these three things, a work site, be it for a major national development or a simple piece of mechanical or bathroom DIY, will be dangerous until everything is sorted out.

Kennards Hire has a range of tools available that can help you to get the job done to the best of your ability, meaning you don't waste time coming back later to fix it all up.

Keeping a level head

One of the hardest things to do by using your own eyes is aligning products. It could be a major railway line, or a fence post, but using a precision altimeter is an easy one-man operation that doesn't even require lasers.

There are so many effective ways to measure height, but your eyes are not one of them.There are so many effective ways to measure height, but your eyes are not one of them.

All you have to do is wheel it out, and errors are not at all amplified over a larger distance. Amazing technology!

As the name suggests, these are perfect for height measurements, and are so simple to use that rudimentary ones can even be found in some watches.

Putting the gear right where you want

Once you've found the correct height for your installation to go ahead, you're going to need all of the correct equipment and product up there with you.

From timber to tiling to patches of metal, and all the tools in between, a tradesperson or DIY enthusiast can't really be of any use without the right kit. It's all well and good to say that 'it's not about the size of the tool, but the way you use it', but if you don't have it in the first place, you won't be much good to anyone.

Depending on the actual height of your workspace will depend on your requirement for a boom lift. Kennards Hire has a huge range of diesel and electric-powered options, but for many purposes, the diesel 60-foot knuckle boom will do the trick.

Your crane doesn't have to reach into the sky, but it does have to get you up safely.Your crane doesn't have to reach into the sky, but it does have to get you up safely.

If your warehouse needs a quick patch-up after a storm, for example, then a knuckle boom will get you up to the lofty height quickly and safely.

Your work might actually require the thing that needs fixing to be shifted as well, such as a car. When you need to get underneath the body and poke around a little, using a floor jack is a quick and easy way to get the car off the ground with enough room for you to slide in underneath. When doing this, it's vital that you locate the lifting points of a vehicle so as not to cause damage to the frame.

Rolling around the site

You might want to use your hired equipment for another job somewhere else on a site.

For when those tricky jobs are finished, you might want to use your hired equipment for another job somewhere else on a site.

With larger machines like the knuckle boom, moving is easy with the wheels already installed. However, for really heavy gear that you can't just push over to the next job, use a nifty little invention like the 20-tonne machine skate. Using a boom or lift, pick the piece of kit up, slide the skate underneath, making sure it's centred (or use multiple), lower and slide around as much as you like.

Work sites don't have to be hard places to produce quality craftsmanship in - you just need the right tools to be in the right places at the right times.
