Tool Hire for Easter DIY Jobs

Easter is usually the time when our thoughts turn to spring and summer. Not only thoughts about the weather being better, but time off work to enjoy with the friends and family. It may also be time to start or complete some of those planned DIY projects you have put off over the wet and cold winter. Those four days (or longer if you tag a few days holiday on!) over the Easter break gives you a good amount of time to get jobs done, either inside or outside your home.

So what do you need to achieve your plans? What tools do you need to make your life a little easier, that perhaps you can hire, rather than buy? FTH can support you with hire equipment to help make it all happen. We don’t just supply trade professionals with equipment – we help the home DIYer too!

The week leading up to Easter is always very busy at all of the FTH Hire Hubs!

Here we have listed just a few tools and tips to show how we can help with various jobs around your home over the Easter break:

For the garden

Moss has grown over the wet winter months and it has been quite prolific this winter with the amount of rain we have had. So most lawns will benefit from being stripped back and fed, before new growth really kicks in.

Or perhaps you need to tidy up areas with the use of a leaf blower or weed burner - very useful where there are lots of trees! 

Maybe the decking or patio needs a spruce up; we have plenty of pressure washers waiting to be hired. Then once the birds have finished nesting, you may have trees or branches overhanging, or on your property that need cutting back. We have hedge trimmers and brush cutters that would be ideal for this.

Are you putting up a new fence? Petrol post hole borers or manual rammers are available to hire for fence fitting and repair work. Take care of those pesky weeds and brush with a weed burner. And don’t forget the trusty pressure washer for your driveway! Click here for more information.

For the house

If you’re restoring floors or getting ready for summer, we have floor sanders and floor edging sanders to achieve a really professional finish. Or maybe you’re installing a new bathroom and need a tile cutter?

For the builder

Cement MixerIf you’re working on building a driveway, patio, shed base, or wall, you might need a mini excavator or cement mixer. For any demolition work, large or small, our breakers and SDS range of drills cover a variety of jobs.

For the decorator

Stripping wallpaper? We can help with a wallpaper stripper and hot air gun to make light work of those tasks. Painting stairwells also need a bit of thought as perhaps a standard ladder won’t be up to the job. Then why not give the carpet a deep clean after you’ve finished, to clear up all the dust, with our range of carpet cleaners, vacuums etc. 

This time of year is very popular for getting the exterior of the house painted, including walls, windows and soffits. Any exterior decoration might require low level access towers, ladders or steps

For the carpenter

If you need to cut timber, please choose from a range of circular saws. If undertaking roofing or more specialised fixing work, we have a full range of fixing and fastening tools. Including nailers for those first or second fix carpentry projects.  

Don’t forget, with all of these tools, you’ll need to consider the appropriate PPE such as goggles, gloves or boots (and more). All available if you drop by to any of our hire hub trade counters.

You may be in your back garden or go camping for the weekend. Well, get the barbecue out and enjoy the first of the season. Oh wait you’ve run out of gas? Make sure you don’t head into Easter and spring without getting your full BBQ gas cannisters from our hire hubs.
