Hire or Buy Group Limited first began trading (as St Neots Tool Hire) in 1974 making it one of the very first tool hire firms in the region.

Since then the company has expanded to its current three depots which are situated along the Cambridgeshire/Bedfordshire A1 corridor, with branches in St Neots, Huntingdon & Biggleswade.

The Hire or Buy Group has hundreds of different types of plant, tools and equipment available for hire.The equipment ranges from 3 tonne mini diggers to hand held power tools, and we are constantly updating and adding to our hire fleet. We will always endeavour to satisfy every request - in most cases, even if we don't stock it, we can still get it.
