All prices quoted in this book are exclusive of VAT. Rates for Plant and Tool Hire are based on a 5- day working week. Rates for all Non-Mechanical Plant are based on a 7-day working week. After the first week, rates then revert to 1/5 or 1/7 of the weekly rate for each day as appropriate. We also have a standard weekend hire rate. All periods are chargeable, including Bank Holidays. Some equipment may be subject to minimum hire periods. We reserve the right to change rates, without notice.
Customers must call the office to off-hire any equipment which requires collection. This practice also applies to short term hires. Equipment will remain on-hire, chargeable until we are notified otherwise and an off-hire number is issued.
Trade accounts are available subject to the completion of a written application form requiring two separate references.
Deposits are required from all customers who do not hold current trade account facilities. We do not accept cheques as deposits or payments. Cash deposits are subject to conditions. The chosen method of deposit is Visa/Debit card. We also require two separate forms of identification, showing name and current address, ideally driving licence and passport. Deposits are refunded, less any hire charges on safe return of the equipment.
