Have You Visited Our Trade Counters?

Our Trade Counters are a must for customers who are passing by or coming in to collect hire equipment. In the realm of construction and DIY, time is money, and having the right tools at your fingertips is paramount.

Trade Counter at FTH HireOur trade counters are great for early risers, wanting to get a head-start with their jobs as we open at 7.00am Monday to Friday.

All trade counter staff offer a wealth of knowledge about all the tools and equipment we stock. They can guide you in choosing the right tool for your specific project, offer usage tips, and troubleshoot any concerns you may have. We believe working closely with our customers is the only way to provide the best possible service alongside all of our hire solutions.

At our Trade Counters, you will be treated to expert help and friendly advice. They will even ease you into your day with a friendly chat over a cup of tea or coffee!

Customers can rent tools for specific durations, ranging from a few hours to several days or weeks. The rental period and pricing may vary based on the type of tool and the duration of the rental. 

We always prioritise safety, and will provide information on the proper usage of tools and necessary safety precautions. The tools provided by FTH Hire are always well maintained and regularly inspected to ensure they meet safety standards and perform effectively. We can also offer safety gear for rent or purchase.

We accept various payment methods, including cash and credit/debit cards. We also have our popular account options for regular business customers.
