All Products are hired on a 3 day rate only unless otherwise agreed in writing by the Company. Minimum rates may apply when the term of the hire is not greater than one (3) days.



(a)    Full payment is required before the Product leaves the possession of the Company together with a bond payment of $150 which will be refunded to the Hirer upon return of the Product in good condition.

(b)   The Hirer hereby agrees to the terms and conditions as set out by the Company and agrees to pay any costs of collection and all legal fees incurred by the Company in the event of legal action becoming necessary.

    • Breakdown resulting from misuse shall not in any circumstances shorten the period of hire.
    • It is the Hirers responsibility to satisfy itself that the product is suitable for the intended use.
    • The Company is not liable for any loss suffered by the Hirer or liability incurred by the Hirer as a result of the breakdown of the Product howsoever caused.

In the event of breakdown the Hirer must immediately notify the Company.
    • Hire items should be protected from rain and high wind environments.



The Hirer shall not have any claim against the Company for loss or damage suffered by the Hirer as a result of the Hirer’s use of the Product and furthermore the Hirer will indemnify the Company against any claim by any third person in respect of any loss, injury or liability arising from this hiring or arising out of the use of the Product hired by the Hirer.



This Agreement is personal to the Hirer and is not capable of assignment by the Hirer, and the Hirer shall not sublet the product to any other person.



(a)    The Company may cancel this agreement by notice with immediate effect if the Company believes the Product to be at risk for any reason whatsoever including, but not limited to:

(c)  The Hirer grants the Company, or will procure that the Company is granted, an irrevocable right and authority to enter at any time onto any place where the Product is situated or thought to be situated to remove the Product in the event the Agreement is terminated.  The Hirer indemnifies the Company against any cost, claim, damage, expense or liability suffered or incurred by the Company whether arising directly or indirectly from the Company exercising its rights under this clause or otherwise acting to recover any Product hired or monies payable by the Hirer pursuant to the Agreement.

The Company is not liable to the Hirer or any other person for any loss suffered or liability incurred arising from cancellation of the Agreement or repossession of the Product.  Cancellation of the Agreement by the Company is without prejudice to any rights that the Company may have under the Agreement.
