I have been thinking about a 'for hire' section on the forum for a while now and if it would work. Maybe even a section for those looking for help/equipment in their local area?

I reckon there are a few guys on here with car specific tools they would hire out for a small fee - those tools are just gathering tools in the box otherwise.

I know I could help anyone out locally within Fife, and would travel outside Fife where possible.

I have quite a number of tools I could hire out, such as hydraulic spring compressors, gen2 wheel bearing tools, hydraulic press etc.

Here's my views on this and there would need to be some sort of disclaimer.

First of all, for me I won't be sending anything out by post, so it would all be face to face.

Anyone lending out tools/equipment surely should be looking for a deposit, ID etc.

As far as failures/injuries go. IMO just like we do in the trade - the person renting out the equipment should be inspecting it and making sure it's all complete and free of defects and so on, secondly the person who has hired it should also be doing the same and refusing to use anything they are not happy with. Again, some sort of disclaimer that says you use any equipment at your own risk. I wouldn't give out any equipment I'm not happy to use myself.

I don't have a low loader to move the hunter machine about and my diag tools do not go out of my sight, I am sure there are enough members to cover the entire country really and if a tool is needed I am sure fellow owners of the tool would gladly give a hand if possible. :D :driving:
