Making sure you have the right tools and equipment for your DIY project, garden overhaul or everyday repairs makes things easier and safer. With B&Qs tool hire service powered by Speedy, you can select the tools you need, how long you need them for and have them delivered directly to your home. Choose from a range of everyday tools such as drills, saws, and ladders that make home DIY simple; or larger equipment which is needed for home renovation projects.

Working in partnership with Speedy Hire, we provide a wide range of tool hire options, from gardening equipment for landscaping projects to access equipment so you have the suitable ladder to work safely at height. All our tools are checked by Speedy before they are sent out for hire and adhere to safety regulations, plus with our flexible hire periods and delivery direct to your home or building site there's never been a more convenient way to access the tools you need.

We have a range of tools available for all your projects or emergency situations. Flooding can cause huge amounts of damage in a short space of time, meaning water needs to be moved away quickly, our range of water pumps to hire can be hired for short periods of time and effectively pump away excess water from basements and waterlogged spaces. To help minimise long term damage a dehumidifier can be used to remove excess moisture in the air and to help dry out the space.

Hiring tools is both cost-effective and convenient with B&Q tool hire, as you can be confident you are hiring quality DIY equipment. You can book your tool hire online or go into one of our 300 stores nationwide, where a store advisor will be able to help arrange for your equipment to be delivered to you.
