Hire Our Tools CC was founded by Norman Scarrott in 1989 after a great run of 9 years the business was sold due to ailing health.
Stephen Vosloo aged 24 with a BEng degree in Industrial Engineering was given a donation by his grandfather and decided to buy the business.
Hire Our Tools CC was converted to a (Pty) Ltd Company and has been owner managed by Stephen with the help of his family and Fantastic staff for the past 22 years.
We are very blessed and grateful for the numerous clients who have been with us for as many years. Our sincere thanks to all, who over the years have become friends and not just customers.

  • Control Systems to help you.
    Our Hire Management System logs order numbers, site addresses and any other special instructions on each invoice for your record purposes. It manages our maintenance scheduling too. 
  • Account security.
    Please ensure that your order numbers (if you use them) accompany all requests for equipment to facilitate control of your profile. If you do not make use of order numbers, please advise us which people are authorised to hire on your behalf. 
  • We like to get it right first time.
    When placing an order please be specific as to which equipment is required, the exact delivery address and the contact person on site. We need to finalise your order correctly at the first attempt to avoid unnecessary delays to yourself and subsequent deliveries to other customers. 
  • Timing and risk management.
    When equipment needs to be collected, it is important to furnish the exact details as to when, where and at what time the collection must be done, as an extra charge may be levied for unnecessary trips. 
  • Minimize mistakes.
    Please never instruct our drivers about collections. All instructions are handled by our hire controllers at the counter, they control the Hire Management System, not our drivers. 
  • Cost saving.
    An “Equipment Still on Hire” report may be requested at any time; this report indicates in real time exactly which tools are still on hire and on which site. 
  • Superior equipment and great service.
    We provide equipment that is clean and in good working order. If a problem does arise the equipment will be replaced if necessary. 
  • Unlimited service. ​ 
    We do offer a repair service for your own equipment. Contact our Maintenance Department for more information. We also offer a full range of construction equipment and tools for sale. Please contact our New-Tools Sales Department for quotes.
