Terms & Conditions

All prices quoted are excluding GST so attract an additional 10% on the total.

A one day hire period is 24 hrs. Equipment returned late without prior arrangement will be charged at the daily rate.

Cancellations

Once your equipment hire has been booked we may then be turning away other clients wanting that same equipment therefore if a confirmed booking is cancelled within 48 hrs of your booking a cancellation fee of 50% of the total will be charged. If cancelled within 24 hrs of your booking a 100% of the total fee will be charged.

Payment Terms

Once you confirm your booking we will send you an invoice and full payment is required prior to the commencement, pick-up or delivery of your equipment.  For regular clients we are happy to set up a trading account so please enquire with us if this required. Payments can be made either by EFT or EFTPOS. We accept Visa, Mastercard & Amex (2% fee applies to all cards).

Insurance

A 7.85% (of total x-GST) insurance fee is charged on all hires. This covers you for theft and accidental damage during your hire period with a $1,500.00 excess up to the total value of $10,000. and $3,000.00 for total value over $10,000.00. In other words, the hirer will still be liable for the first $1,500.00 or $3,000.00 of any claim. Any theft or loss claims are to be backed up with a police report or in the case of loss while in transit is to be backed up with a claim from the Airline or transport company. All due care must be taken in handling and storage including hiding it from view while in locked vehicles.

NOTE: Equipment stored in locked vehicles overnight on the street or in public areas IS NOT COVERED BY INSURANCE BETWEEN THE HOURS OF 7.00PM – 7.00AM so you will be liable for the full replacement cost of the equipment if the equipment is stolen from your vehicle between these hours.

Equipment must be protected from rain and other corrosive or damaging elements such as dust, mud and sand etc.  If working on beaches or muddy/dusty surfaces tarps or towels are to be laid down to place stands and other equipment on.

A minimum cleaning fee of $350.00 will be charged if equipment is returned dirty.
