With a clampdown on support from banks to lend money to home and business owners, Skibbereen Tool Hire have decided to take the matter in to their own hands by introducing staged payment for customers who may not otherwise be in a position to hire the equipment required to begin new projects or complete unfinished tasks.
Speaking of the new initiative, Vincent Hurley, owner of Skibbereen Tool Hire said, “We decided to offer people the option of staged payments for equipment over ten months to free up some cash for those who may be struggling to get work completed either at home or in their businesses.
“With banks less inclined to approve loans these days I felt it was time that we did something to help out customers who are feeling the pressure.
“We have machines here that are needed but people may not be in a position to pay upfront for hiring them so staged payments is the perfect solution.
“We will work together with customers to set up a payment scheme over a period of ten months or less.
“This will allow our customers to get their work done and allow us to hopefully generate more business to get things moving once more.”
He continued, “Times have changed and sometimes you need to change with the times so I am delighted to be able to offer our customers the option of staged payments.”
