FAMILY OWNED AND OPERATED SINCE 1999

Basically Tool Hire is proud to be one of the leading tool hire and repair providers in Edinburgh, the Lothians and Borders.

GETTING THE PUBLIC WORKING FOR 20 YEARS

Founded by Colin Cassidy in 1999, our family owned tool hire business has over two decades of experience.

Originally based in a self built sawmill, and after lending over and over again to friends, Colin decided to put his deep reserve of tools and equipment out to hire, and Basically Tool Hire Ltd was born.
