There’s a little-known curse in the world of creative projects – from the smallest backyard fix to the largest commercial build – but it’s a form of quiet, relentless torture that will sound all too familiar to hardworking tradies and those who truly relish the DIY lifestyle.

And it’s this: the struggle against rigid equipment return hours. For anyone even remotely invested in producing high-quality work, rather than frantically racing against the clock, it’s like running out of paracetamol after the chemist has closed – it’s an inconvenience coupled with a physical burden.

But it doesn’t have to be. Not anymore.

The DIY Dilemma

For DIYers, home improvement projects are often undertaken in spurts of free time. You might work on a project for a few hours one evening, leave it for a week, and then return to it when time allows. This sporadic schedule can be problematic when dealing with traditional rental companies. You might end up finding yourself pressured to finish your project quickly to get back your hire equipment during normal opening hours.

Sometimes, it’s not until you’re elbows-deep in a project that you realise that the sun has set and you’ve missed the time to return the equipment. With traditional return policies, you’re often stuck with the equipment until you can get to a branch during their working hours, which might not align with your busy schedule. That’s where Kennards Hire’s After Hours 24/7 return service swoops in to save the day.

The Tradie Trials

Now, let’s talk about the daily grind of tradies – the unsung heroes who keep our homes and businesses in shape. But we know it’s not all sunshine and rainbows. Imagine you’ve spent your day working on a busy job site. You’ve relied on Kennards Hire’s equipment to get the job done efficiently. But as your workday winds down, the last thing you want is to be rushed in to returning the equipment before you finish the job off perfectly.

The traditional return process could put you in a tight spot: either down tools and make another trip to the branch, or wait until the next day to return them. Neither is ideal solution when you’re under pressure to get the job done. This is where After Hours steps in as your trusty sidekick.
