    Default Wanted - painters trestiles or scaffold to buy or hire - Brisbane area

    I'm thinking about painting the exterior of the house myself. At the moment I am just trying to price it up to see if the saving is actually an amount worth saving or not.
    It's a two story timber weatherboard home so I need some sort of elevation for three sides of the house (can stand on the carport roof for the last side).
    I'll be tackling this job myself on weekends and my days off, or potentially can schedule a week off to have a go at it, but I have no idea how long it will take me.
    Ideally, I am looking for someone who has painting trestles or a scaffold system that can be set up and moved by one person and does not need use of this equipment for at least a month or more.
    I can't imagine I'll ever need this equipment again, so I would prefer to rent it, but if you're done with it and the price is right, I can purchase outright.
    Thanks.
    Brad.

    A mate of mine in Tassie hired something similar to this to paint the upper level of his place.

    Costs a bit but you will save a heap of time moving scaffold. It depends on your access.

    Thanks Jon.
    One of those would definitely do the trick, but since I can't just block out a week or two to get it done, the rental fee for the time I'd need it for is more than the cost of getting it professionally painted!
