Step 1: Discovering what you need

Whether you require hydraulic power tools, access equipment, or welding machines, we’ve got you covered. Look through our vast selection of top of the range equipment for the perfect temporary addition to your toolbox.

We have extensive knowledge about every tool we hire out so if you are unsure about what you need, don’t hesitate to reach out to us.

Step 2: Receiving a quote

Up next on our ultimate guide is to receive your quote. When hiring tools, obviously price is important. At Allen Hire, we want to make our products as accessible as possible, so we have carefully thought out our pricing – It will be dependent on the type of tool you wish to hire and how long you wish to hire it for. We offer transparent pricing and flexible rental options to suit both your budget and project needs.

Step 3: Confirmation

Once you are happy with the quote, our team will finalise the reservation and confirm the availability of the tools for your desired rental period.

Once confirmed, you will need to provide us with your photo ID and pay for the hire. If you are an account customer, you will be invoiced at the end of the month.

Step 4: Delivery/ Collection

You have picked the perfect tool, agreed upon a quote, and had confirmation, now onto delivery.

If you are local to our depot (we’re based in Stockton-on-tees, TS18 3BL) you can collect at your earliest convenience.

However, if not, we charge a delivery and collection fee if you decide that is the better option for you.  We will deliver to your specified location, ensuring that the tools are ready for use as soon as they get to you.

Step 5: Now you have the rental tools

At drop off/ collection time, our knowledgeable staff will provide you with a comprehensive briefing on how to safely operate and use the tools. We will also answer any questions you may have, ensuring that you have the necessary knowledge to handle the tools effectively.

Now you can focus purely on your project with the utmost confidence. Our tools are regularly maintained and inspected to ensure optimal performance and reliability. This will allow you to work efficiently and achieve your project goals with no setbacks. Not from our tools at least!

Step 6: Time to return the tools

Now your rental period is complete, it is time to return the tools. You can simply return the tools to our depot or schedule a convenient collection time.

Make sure you remember us for next time!
