If you are undertaking house extensions as a contractor or skilled home DIYer, think about the equipment you will need to make sure the job is done efficiently and safely.
As a DIY project, house extensions can be a challenge - but it could work out to be more cost-effective, especially if you or members of your family and friends have skills or experience in renovations.
For contractors and builders, a higher level of experience can mean a more focused plan of action.
In both cases, equipment hire can add an extra level of speed and safety, especially when you consider the various tools and pieces of machinery available from hire companies.
Mini-loaders and mini-dumpers may be among the most useful devices for earthmoving when it comes to house extensions - they can move a lot of dirt and debris and are small enough to fit into small or narrow spaces.
Some models have high-lift action, so trucks or flatbeds can be reached for dumping - and the mechanical tracks they run on mean they can move across sand, dirt and other uneven surfaces with ease.
