Professional tool rental in Spain

In partnership with Kiloutou, a materials rental company, Brico Dépôt is making it easier for trade customers to rent professional machinery at affordable prices.

Since May 2017, customers of Brico Dépôt Parets, near Barcelona, have been able to rent large machinery for use on construction projects. Due to the success of the pilot, the Brico Dépôt store in Getafe was added as a second test site, and will begin offering the service in October 2017.

The rental service includes construction equipment, ladders, platforms for painting, and sanding, sawing and drilling tools, all available to customers within 24 hours. The services are available directly from Kiloutou, or Brico Dépôt stores.

The aim of the pilot is to assess demand from both trade, as well as non-professional customers.

And the first analysis of the service has been very positive, with trade customers reporting a significant increase in turnover for their businesses, as they would otherwise have to purchase and maintain the machinery themselves.

This great initiative complements the Brico Dépôt product offer to trade customers – all in line with our ambition to make home improvement accessible to everyone.
