Tool & Plant Hire


From large excavators for site work to a heavy duty drill for a home DIY project

Our tool and plant hire offer is the most comprehensive in the far north of Scotland, and in any given week we have various plant on hire to construction sites across the north of Scotland, plus tools and other equipment hired out for DIY projects.

We keep a fairly wide range of tools and plant at our base in Thurso, but with a long-standing relationship in place with HSS it means we can get anything else that required within a day or two. And we really do mean ‘anything else’, and as an outline of the sort of tools and plant we have in stock or are quickly available to us:

  • Excavators, dumpers and rollers
  • Access equipment (ladders, towers, staging, platforms) and including powered
  • Tower lights and other moveable lighting systems
  • Breaking and drilling (heavy duty drills, breakers, jackhammers and accessories)
  • Building and site works (roadworks, traffic management, site equipment and storage)
  • Heating, drying and cooling (air conditioning units, dryers, heaters)
  • Gardening equipment (chippers, shredders, clearance tools, hedge and tree cutting)
  • Fuel bowsers (e.g. as a fuel tank for a construction site)

Collect from us in Thurso or we’ll deliver to you

If it’s a relatively small item such as a drill or breaker then our customers normally prefer to collect from us, but in any event and certainly for larger plant, we will deliver to wherever the equipment is needed.

All the brands for plant and tools that you can trust

Although the quality and reliability of anything hired from us is obviously our responsibility, for us and our customers it obviously makes sense that all tools and plant are fit for purpose (we know our customers won’t thank us for anything less). We therefore favour trusted brands for all our plant and tools and these include:

  • JCB
  • Thwaites
  • Towerlight
  • Pike
  • Bell (mixers)
  • Wacker
  • Honda
  • Bosch
