Quality ex-hire tools up for grabs at bargain prices

Anyone who has ever hired a steamer to strip stubborn wallpaper or a hot power washer to give the patio it’s annual deep clean will know that the tools available are good quality and will be reliable enough to get the job done.

The brands on offer tend to be the best on the market, used by craftsmen and professional contractors – plus, hire companies service equipment regularly to keep it in tip-top condition.

But what happens when tool hire companies to want to update their stock? The chances are that despite no longer being the most up-to-date model, the vast majority of equipment will still be reliable and have plenty of miles left on the clock.

In addition, businesses and private buyers may be looking to source quality used tools with a far lower price tag than their brand-new equivalent.

Both vendors and purchasers can benefit from turning to a reputable online auction site, such as BPI Auctions.

Tool hire companies can free up space and enjoy a welcome stream of revenue through an online asset disposal, while prospective purchasers have access to a wide variety of tools for sale.

We regularly work with some of the biggest names in the tool hire sector – Hire Station and Jewson to name but two – to sell their surplus hire stock.

In addition to regular online sales, we also conduct ‘live’ auctions of ex-hire tools and equipment, where bidding takes place in real-time. Currently scheduled is a three-day live auction of items from Hire Station, many of which have very low reserve prices.

The sale includes everything from angle grinders to concrete mixers and dehumidifiers to transformers and even a hydraulic block splitter. Floor planers, work light chargers, floodlights and an electric chain hoist are all included in the list of items going under the hammer.

Other stock up for grabs includes ex-hire gardening equipment ­– such as lawnmowers and strimmers – along with various high-quality saws, power tools and workbenches. All tools are from quality manufacturers such as Bosch, Stihl, Honda and Husqvarna.
