Summary of our Hire Terms:

The hire period is one week (7 days), and this is also the minimum hire period. Should you need the units for 10 days for example, you would be charged for 2 weeks.

The units will arrive to your specified delivery address on the Hire Commencement date and a collection will be arranged on the Hire Cease date from the same address, unless otherwise specified.

We don’t hire the batteries or SD memory cards for security purposes, but these are available for purchase.

We do not insure the units during the hire period – this is normally covered by your ‘Hired in Plant Insurance’. You will need to confirm to us that you are covered for this.
