Pressure washers make cleaning up around the house a breeze, especially when it comes to cleaning large areas like decks, driveways and siding. For many home owners, they are a “must have” in the outdoor power equipment arsenal. But if you can only picture using it once or twice a year, maybe renting a pressure washer from our tool rental center is a better way to go.

Pressure washers are one of the most rented tools from The Home Depot. We carry an outstanding line of pressure washers from leading industrial brands Mi-T-M and Landa with pressure ranging from 1400 psi up to 3500 psi in electrical- and gas-powered models. Associate Tony English highlights our line of pressure washers and accessories, and describes PSI in detail in this video:

 

 

The products featured in this video include industrial pressure washer models from Mi-T-M in 1400, 2700 and 3500 PSI’s. Pressure washer models available for rent at your local Home Depot may vary. Check out our tool rental page for additional information. If you decide you would like to explore buying one, you can find many electricalgas-powered, and professional pressure washers online at homedepot.com and at your local Home Depot store.

Our First Look series gives Apron Blog readers an inside look by highlighting some of the videos our store associates watch to learn about the new products and services available at The Home Depot.

    Thanks for the ball park figure. Without it I would not have moved forward with the trip to your store. Everything is done online these days. Without this bit of information I would have looked elsewhere before continuing to investigate pricing. I’m glad i searched for this post. Thanks again.

    Do you rent heated units? I could use extra units at times when doing pressure washing services in elk grove, CA

    Diane, Craig and “John”,

    I too searched throughout the site for pricing. As a marketing professional, who has dealt with this issue before, I would address the pricing this way…

    - PRESSURE WASHERS -
    2000 psi or 3500 psi – for as little as $00.00 per hour
    (Check you’re local store for availability and regional pricing)

    or

    - PRESSURE WASHERS -
    2000 psi or 3500 psi
    From $00.00 to $00.00 per hour or $00.00 to $00.00 per day on average
    (Check you’re local store for availability and regional pricing)

    Although, I too was a bit frustrated while searching for pricing, I did intend too visit my store to check it out.

    Ditto on the good response Craig.

      The availability of specific tools for rental varies from store to store, and in some cases the rates can vary a little, depending on what region you’re in.

      To answer your question, a 2000 psi pressure washer should rent for about $50 for 4 hours, or $72 for a whole day, along with a deposit of about $100. A higher powered washer would be a bit more, one with lower power will be a bit less.

    Ditto what was said below. I wanted an approximate cost to rent a pressure washer. None to be found. Ever hear of Marcus Sheridan? He had a pool business that was on the brink of failing during the economic downturn of 2008-2009. So he started answering his customers’ tough questions, like how much does a fiberglass pool cost. Result? He has one of the most successful pool business on the East Coast, primarily because he cares about what his customers want to know and gives them the answer. Try that!

    • Craig Allen says:

      Thanks for the feedback about displaying pricing information online, Diana (and others here).

      I made sure your comments made it to the people here who manage our rental services. They told me that they also want to see that information available online, and it is definitely on the road map for online upgrades.

      The rental inventory varies from store to store, and in some cases the pricing of rental tools varies somewhat by region. Making sure we can deliver the correct information to you is actually a fairly complex challenge, and it’s not something that we could just hammer together and roll out over night. But it’s gradually moving up the to-do list. Meanwhile, every month, we’re quietly rolling out upgrades and new features to our website and mobile apps. Some is visible to the user, but much is of it is technical improvements behind the scenes that make navigating our website (and with our mobile apps, navigating actual stores) and quickly finding exactly what you’re looking for much faster and easier.

      I’m afraid that might not be a very satisfying answer, but it’s the best I can give at the moment. You’ve told us what you want, and it’s our job as a retailer to deliver that.

      In the meantime, please don’t hesitate to telephone your nearest Home Depot store for anything you might need. What we currently lack in a technological solution will be more than made up for by the people who wear the orange aprons.

    Exactly what this guy said. I got so frustrated looking for prices I just went somewhere else. Unfortunately, I stumbled across this page (which doesn’t list prices either) and happened to scroll down to comments.

    • Craig Allen says:

      Thank you for the feedback, John.

      I made certain your comment made it to the folks who manage our rental services.

      Please find the response I wrote to Diana Kightlinger here in the comments section. It’s meant to address your comment, too.

      We do appreciate your business, and we appreciate you taking the time to let us know how we’re doing.

    Would greatly appreciated rental rates for rentals, or at least cost ranges. Really got a headache for not being able to find prices. You should state that customers will not find prices so dont look for them.

      Hi, Ed.

      The availability of specific tools for rental varies from store to store, and in some cases the rates can vary a little, depending on what region you’re in.

      • Steven says:

        I just wanna say to Craig Allen, that you sir did a great job. The customers asked a specific question, and you answered professionaly and provided a ball park figure. I’m going to rent one you folks tomorrow and I think you deserve the credit. Nice Job!

        • Craig Allen says:

          Mom? Is that you?

          Seriously, thank you for the nice comment, Steven. Enjoy your pressure washer.

          -Craig, from The Home Depot

          • Dave says:

            I too am now going to rent the pressure washer because I now have some sense of what the cost is going to be. Thanks Craig!

          • Dennis says:

            I second that. I’ll also consider renting a pressure washer now. Even if we can get a range of cost, that is better than nothing. I’ve tossed around “should I buy one or rent one?” and this summer definitely steers me to renting one.
