Many larger home renovations need the kind of tools that the home handyman may not have stashed away in the garage. They are both too costly to buy and take up too much room to store. Purchasing them outright would add considerably to the cost of renovation, especially if they were never used again. This is where equipment hire can save you.
If you are adding a deck, verandah or room, or building a gazebo or carport on a block that has sloping ground you will need to level it first unless you want to use piers to hold the floor. Otherwise, an excavator will be needed to do the work of removing all the soil and putting it somewhere else useful, such as building up a garden bed.
