Hiring Charges and Conditions

Hire Charges
Hire equipment charges are based on the following calculation. However, there are some groups of hire equipment that are exceptions and these have specific charges for day hire or week hire. Each class of equipment on this website has its own rates and these can be seen under the groups on the left of the home screen.

1 day 50% of a week
2 day 65% of a week
3 day 85% of a week
4-7days 100% of a week

Charges after 7 days are charged per day as an equal percentage of the week rate.

For the rates on plant hire equipment please ask at your local depot.

However, should you require equipment delivered to you urgently or by a set time then this delivery would incur and emergency rate. For further details please ask at your local depot.

You can save yourself this charge by collecting/returning equipment from/to any of our depots.

Some of our equipment is heavy and bulky. Please ensure that you bring along a suitable vehicle or trailer and have some method of loading/unloading the equipment safely, as well as a method of securing the equipment in transit.

We are happy to advise you regarding the weight and size of the equipment you are collecting.
