Our company policy states that plant & tools can only be hired out by non account customers when covered by a deposit from a valid Credit/Debit card, which must be in the name of the hirer. Cash and cheques are not accepted.


Two forms of identification must be submitted confirming the hirers address (this must be the same address that the Credit/Debit card is registered to) together with a landline telephone number and mobile number.


A deposit of up to £500 per item hired plus hire fees will be taken from the hirers card before the hire commences. Hire charges will then be debited at the end of the first complete hire week and every Friday thereafter until the hire is completed.


Deposits and overpayments will be credited on termination of hire.


A visit to any of our branches is required before the hire can commence.


Please Note: The hirer is responsible for theft and damage to the machine(s) and should have adequate insurance to cover this.


All plant & tools, no matter how big or small cannot be supplied without Insurance. Customers must supply proof of insurance before commencement of hire.


We are able to offer HAE HireGuard insurance at an additional cost but it is up to the hirer to decide if this cover satisfies their requirements.


Please contact our hire desks to discuss HireGuard Insurance in detail.
