    Tool Hire FAQs

    Can you hire a mini digger without a license?

    Operating a mini excavator on private land, worksites, or access roads does not require a driving licence. However, if you plan to use a digger on public roads, a valid licence is necessary.

    It's important to note that proper qualifications are required if you intend to work on roadsides or public spaces. 

    To operate all sizes of digging machines with a rotating base in any location, you would need to become a 360 excavator operator with a valid Construction Plant Competence Scheme (CPCS) card. This card can be obtained by studying at a training provider. Additionally, a Construction Skills Certification Scheme (CSCS) card is needed to work on a construction site. So, before starting your mini digger hire near me, ensure you have the appropriate licences and qualifications for the intended use.

    How much does it cost to rent a excavator for a day?

    £160 Ex.VAT per day or £200 Ex.VAT for a week.

    Mini diggers are incredibly versatile and can be used for a wide range of projects. Whether you're a homeowner tackling a DIY task or a professional in need of a reliable tool, a mini excavator is a great choice. These machines come with various attachments and instruction manuals, making them easy to use even for beginners.
