So you have a job to get done – landscaping, earthmoving, electrical, at height, construction, or other – and you know you need to hire tools and machinery. But which machine will be right for your job? And once you know which machine to hire, how do you use it properly?

Whether, for example, you’re a business operator requiring equipment hire for building a driveway, undertaking in-roof electrical work, or you’re a DIY enthusiast looking to undertake a renovation, construct a deck, build a wall, or landscape your property, you need to know you’re using the proper equipment for your job and that you’re using it right.
The easiest way to achieve both of these is to hire from the experts – and in the Launceston region, this means choosing Tamar Hire.

Which Machine?

Depending on the job at hand, and its size and scope, Tamar Hire has a wide array of equipment for hire in different sizes. These range from the larger/heavier items suitable for commercial projects to the smaller/lighter options that will often suffice for a DIY home project.

Our machines for hire include but are not limited to:

  • Earthmoving equipment
  • Access equipment
  • Concreting tools
  • Compactors
  • Generators
  • Electric tools
  • Air compressors
  • …and much more

If you’re unsure exactly what you need, give us a call and tell us what kind of job you’re tackling and what you hope to achieve. We have the experience and expertise to understand your job and to recommend and provide the right machinery or tools to get it done.

Once you’ve hired your equipment, how do you operate it?

When you hire our large equipment – i.e. excavators, elevated work platform, rollers, etc – these have user manuals advising of how to operate the machines and we supply these with your hire machinery.

Our smaller equipment – e.g. electrical tools, high-pressure cleaners, etc – has only the standard safety sticker/instructions attached.

Here at Tamar Hire, we will give you a complete and comprehensive rundown of how to operate all of our machines before you take them, and we will also start the machine up in front of you to make sure you have no issues.

For further instruction or tips, simply check out out “Tony’s Tips” page on our website, or call us and ask if you’re unsure.
