Sydney’s Tool Rental Price Guide

Sydney’s Tool Rental Price Guide

Sydney-siders in all areas have quickly caught on to the prospect of hiring tools instead of buying them straight-up from tool houses and large companies. If you’re reading this, maybe you have too. Large companies, like the ones we have listed prices on, have set the bar when it comes to rental prices…and often times the prices are not substantially lower than the prices of simply buying the tools.

We went roaming to compile per day (/day) and 7-day (/pw) rental prices on some of your favorite tools. These charts compare the prices of various tools available to rent from conventional hire companies with the prices you could be enting your tools out for on ToolMates Hire.

Please keep in mind that listed prices are subject to change.

With other every-day items, such as with cars for example, the rental option is normally quite cheaper than the option to buy straight-up. Shouldn’t it be that way with tools as well–especially if the tool is only needed for the completion of a short-term job or DIY project?

That very question is part of the reason why we at ToolMates Hire developed this platform which allows users to locate tools for hire in ANY suburb and rent them for a not-so-commercial price.

Now for tool-owners… With ToolMates Hire comes the freedom of being able to rent your tools for any daily, weekly, bond-included or excluded rate. But with that freedom also comes the question of how much is the right rental price for your equipment. Our suggestion is to use the price guide that we compiled to determine how much you should be renting your tools for. Another option is to look at tools already for hire on the site– anything from smaller tools like hand tools for rent to larger tools like trailers for rent–and determine pricing of your own tools according to prices listed by other users.

When hiring-out tools you use more frequently, it is easy to block-out dates where renters will automatically be unable to request the tool from you. Easy, huh?

Happy hiring!
