About Basically Tool Hire

Tool and Equipment Hire in Edinburgh, Scotland
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 his machines, rather than giving them away for free... And here we are! From humble roots, with a hire fleet consisting of a vibrating plate, a Stihl saw, a cement mixer and a rotovator, we have 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 everyone, from the professional builder and landscaper, to a DIY-er ready to tackle any job in the home.

At Basically Tool Hire, we pride ourselves not only on our quality of work, but also on our turn-around time. Our aim is to provide you with all the tools you need, but to also have your equipment back in working order. Gone are the days when all our machines were repaired by a flustered Irish man called Ben, we now have fully qualified mechanics, so whether it be Paslodes, chainsaws, lawnmowers, woodchippers or excavators, we can service and repair almost anything.

A family owned and ran business, we haven't forgotten where we have come from, or who got us there, and we hope that if you are in need of anything machine-related: hire, repair or sales, we're you're first port of call. Just call to speak to a member of our team today 0131 663 9563!
