Basically Tool Repairs story

In 1999, Colin Cassidy decided he had had enough. If you were a working man, trying to provide for your family, how many times would you be willing to lend people your tools and equipment, only to have them returned broken? With a building built by his own hand, and originally intended as a sawmill, lying disused, he had the idea that maybe he could hire out his machines, rather than giving them away for free… and from there, one of East Scotland’s leading tool hire and repairs providers was born! We have grown from our humble roots to where we are now: with a hire fleet consisting of a vibrating plate, a Stihl saw, a cement mixer and a rotovator and more. Basically Tool Hire has grown in to a business with everything from floor sanders to excavators. At our location in Edinburgh, Scotland we stock a comprehensive range of tools and equipment available for hire. We have machinery for projects of all scales, from the professional builder and landscaper to a DIY-er ready to tackle any job in the home.

We provide for projects of every type or scale – domestic, commercial or otherwise.
