Equipment Hire

With a vast portfolio of equipment, we can cater for any requirement large or small.

Building a successful event requires reliable, robust and solid equipment including Speakers, Microphones, Mixers, Projectors, Screens and much more.

We offer two types of equipment hire services as detailed below.

Dry Hire

All of our equipment can be hired in a "dry" format, this means that we deliver the equipment as ordered directly to the client event and collect when complete, all equipment is tested prior to delivery and it is expected that the client would setup the equipment themselves.

Wet Hire

The option of wet hire is the most common option for our clients. We will prepare the equipment and arrive at the event in plenty of time to setup, test and demo the equipment either handing over to the client’s own technician or we can include a professional engineer to manage all the equipment, levels and AV needs of the event.

8 Frequently asked questions about equipment hire

I’m not sure what equipment I will need for my event?

Our team are always happy to advise you on the best equipment you will need to fulfil your requirements. We can advise on all aspects of equipment hire.

Why will I need somebody to operate the equipment?

In the event you are having equipment that requires operating there is the option to have a member of our staff on hand if you do not have an engineer of your own.

There are cases where you would not need an engineer for your event. It may be that the option for one of our engineers to do a handover to your in-house engineer or event manager would be preferable. These requirements can be discussed during the initial contact with one of our event coordinators.

What is a handover technician?

If you are hiring equipment that we are installing and testing but does not require an engineer to be on hand for the duration of your event we can offer a handover service.

Will there be enough battery power in the remote equipment for the full day?

With all our equipment hires the items that require batteries will have a new set of batteries installed. There will also be spare batteries available.

What if my laptop doesn’t work with the supplied equipment?

During the booking process we can discuss the equipment that you will be bringing and ensure that any issues such as connecting your laptop to a projector or PA system are resolved long before the date of your event.

What should I do after the event if you are collecting the equipment?

If you need to remove any of your equipment such as laptops for example, please do so as instructed during the booking or by the handover technician. We will arrive after the finish time of your event to pack down and collect all the hire kit.

Is there a booking fee required?

With all equipment hire the booking fee will be 25% of the final hire amount and confirms all the equipment necessary to fulfil your requests.
