Mullum-Hire_picMark Thomas has owned and run Mullumbimby Hire & Sales for 10 years. He is a qualified builder so he knows his tools and what you need for the job. He also has extensive knowledge about organising functions (even if you don’t!). His expertise doesn’t stop there, though, he also knows a lot about pools.

Mark and his staff are known for their knowledge and their friendliness. Some of Mark’s staff have been with him for 15 years, they are ready to advise you on what tools you need to do the job or which marquee would best suit your wedding or function. You name it:  from scaffolding to  diggers and mulchers; from chairs and trestle tables to beautiful big marquees, they are your ‘go-to’ shop.  And don’t forget the pools!  They can test your pool water, help you with the necessary chemicals and they also do pool servicing.  It’s a wonder they get any sleep!  What gets them up in the morning though, is being a part of a very encompassing community – ‘From fairs, trade shows and community support for people in need. We all look after each other with a huge smile,’ says Mark.
