Tool hire retailer HSS has launched a totally revamped website. Featuring over 1,000 different products to hire and a range of consumables to buy, the site serves both DIYers and professionals.

“The HSS site demonstrates Digivate’s skills at combining design and usability with bespoke programming to create first class websites,” said Will Gotley, Managing Director at Digivate.
