Right,give us a clue.??
Are you talking about the suppliers in Alcester Bernard?
I’m sure They don’t do ones for hire. I use a gadget from Ebay it’s plastic and you screw it to joist then this holds the board at one end, it’s called Boardmate.

How do you get 8 x 4s through houses in domestics???
I never use em upstairs just use 6*3's now I got lwb van I just make a note when I quote if small uns or big uns. Just finishing a nice kitchen diner that was straight through the front door fully boarded so that got the 8*4 treatment, wish I could use them all the time speeds me up no end

You can get 6x3 fireline. Order them if you need a lump. local merchants to me stocks them, handy if I want 8x4 I just go Travis

Them lifters good in big empty rooms other than that they’re a ball Ache.

1 labourer 1 day so much quicker. They ain’t even heavy.
