About Us

Need A Tool has been at the cutting edge of the machinery and equipment rentals industry since 1968. We have since grown enormously and have become the most trusted name in the construction equipment hire business. We are constantly discovering and distributing the most technologically advanced and innovative tools and machinery to our clients. We offer everything from generators and garden equipment to boom lifts and scissor lifts.

We have incomparable experience in the business and continue to grow and flourish. In 1994 Need A Tool reached new heights and we moved our premises from Main Road, Pinetown to Falcon Park, New Germany. We needed to move our business to an environment that had the capabilities to cater to our multitude of clients and their specific machine and tool requirements.

Incomparable Services and Products

As our sales team gained momentum we became the agents for the best construction, DIY and engineering equipment brands in the industry. These brands include HILTI, HITACHI, BOSCH, HONDA power products and MAKITA. We are the supplier of choice for all industries that require our services.

Not only do we supply the highest quality of engineering equipment, DIY tool and construction machinery, we have also invested hugely in Access Equipment. Our team realised that there was a lack of access equipment available on the South African market. This equipment is of great importance as it offers construction sites and builders a chance to increase their productivity and add to their overall safety. The access equipment that we have for hire is of the highest quality, international standards and are cost-effective. Some of the access equipment platforms that we offer include boom lifts, personnel lifts and scissor lifts.

We guarantee that we will give you the most superior products at the most affordable rates.
