Tool & Plant Hire For Home, Garden & Trade

Coronavirus Update

Further to Britain's prime minister Boris Johnson's announcement this evening, Monday 23rd March 2020, Hartley Hire will only be accepting equipment back into branch on Tuesday in anticipation of a full closure. ALL bracches will be now be closed from Tuesday night at 5pm until further notice.

Hires can be suspended with notification provided they are not in use or used throughout the enforced shut down period. I would like to remind all customers they are fully responsible for the equipment whilst it is in their care under the HAE contract terms and conditions. Customers should check with their insurance companies that they are fully covered for theft and damage to the equipment for this period. I will update the website as further information becomes available.

We wish all our customer well and hope to see you again once this terrible period has come to an end.

MD Hartley Hire 


Over the coming months we aim to add more detail and advice which we hope will help you to complete any job you hire equipment for.

Flexible hiring periods, advice on the proper use, and charges at a fraction of the cost of buying means hiring is the sensible option for one-off home improvement jobs or specialist longer term commercial use. What's more when you hire, you don't have to worry about long-term storage.

With five branches covering North Lancashire and South Lakes, Hartley Hire's range includes virtually everything from carpet cleaners to 6 tonne dumpers, from floor sanders to alloy scaffold towers.

Notes before you hire/price advice

Some items on this website may require further accessories to successfully complete your intended task i.e. a Floor Sander needs sanding sheets, Carpet Cleaners need shampoo, Breakers need chisels, such items might affect the total hire charges.  To check if additional item(s) will be required and to gain free advice/tips or to check availability please always call your local Hartley Hire Branch for a complete quotation.

Local delivery is available on all items.
