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.

Very helpful and good prices

Glenn Macarthur

Really friendly firm to deal with. Always try their best to sort you out and they seem a genuinely cheery bunch. I've been there many times and never had a bad experience. Prices seem competitive and there are a number of branches in the Morecambe Bay area. I never seem to hire stuff from anywhere else these days. The Lancaster branch is very handy where it is on Caton Road and you can park right outside the unit which is handy.
