Carvers Tool Hire Centre

Carvers suffered a devastating fire back in February 2012, which destroyed offices, warehouse and stock. After an extensive rebuild programme, the Company is now thriving once again and operates from a brand new builders village facility, featuring Kitchen, Bathroom and specialist Cooker Centre showrooms and has welcomed franchises - Tile Choice, S.J Dixons, Rayton Electrical and Bespoke Windows on board.

A Drive Through Warehouse also operates to service trade customers with all materials kept undercover, ensuring a fast and efficient service.

Over the years, Carvers have expanded into timber merchanting and bottled gas distribution and in addition have introduced a tool hire and sales centre and landscaping display, making Carvers the complete one stop shop for both trade and retail customers.

Carvers are constantly working to meet the changing demands of their customers by introducing new product ranges and running regular price checks to ensure their customers are getting the best deals around.
