Homeowners are being encouraged to fix up their properties before the winter weather sets in during National Maintenance Week, Friday 22nd – Friday 29th November 2013.
Regular maintenance is essential for our homes but can prove a costly business, which is where high street retailer Cash Converters can help.
New research released by the UKs top second hand retailer has found that one in five people spend over £100 on tools and DIY equipment which rarely or never gets used.
Cash Converters is offering a solution to help reduce the expense by providing good quality second hand tools at reasonable prices, which people can sell on again once they have finished with them.
David Patrick, chief executive at Cash Converters, said: “Our 227 stores across the UK buy and sell a wide range of DIY tools. From tool kits to sanders, to power drills and angle grinders, even up to air compressors and generators for the more adventurous DIY person, all of which can help you with those last minute jobs around the house before the winter sets in.
“In this economic climate more people are doing DIY to save money and Cash Converters offers the perfect place to buy second hand tools or sell them, turning unwanted items in to instant cash, enabling you to fix up your property on a budget. “
With more than a third of men and a fifth of women claiming to be DIY pros, customers are being encouraged to pop in to their local store to pick up a bargain.
Cash Converters is the UK’s number one retailer of buying and selling pre-owned goods and a financial services provider, with 227 stores in the UK and 730 worldwide.
