Dry Hire

Dry hiring equipment could save you some money...


Dry Hire is the industry term for the 'unmanned' hire of equipment, meaning that you hire equipment without any sort of engineering assistance. You will responsible for the collection of equipment as well as returning it to us at the end of the hire period. If nessicary we can arrange to deliver to you and collect at the end of the hire period for an agreed fee which will be based on mileage.

If you want to Dry Hire, we advise you to ensure that you have the ability to competently operate the equipment. There is no point in hiring a complex mixing desk if you have little knowledge of how to get the best from it - you could end up spending hours figuring out how to make it work! If you have reasonable technical skills though, Dry Hire provides a very economical method adding expensive equipment to your production that you may otherwise not be able to afford!

We do of course provide Dry Hire on items as basic as Microphones, Stands and Cables. Please note that we do not supply 'freebies'. If you want to hire a Speaker, hire a Speaker. If you want to hire a cable, hire a cable. If you need a Speaker and a Cable, you will need to hire both. That said, we can offer dry hire packages where you can hire an entire system at a discounted rate.

For Dry Hire you will need to satisfy certain identity requirements - we like to ensure the safe return of our equipment! You will need to provide positive proof of who you are and where you live. We will also ask you to read our full Terms & Conditions of Hire and provide a dated signature to indicate your acceptance of those Terms & Conditions.

We need to see and copy some form of Photo ID; such as a current Driving Licence or EU Passport, which must include your current residential address - if you have Photo ID that does not show your current residential address then a recent (less than 3 months old) utility bill or bank statement would be satisfactory alongside the ID. If you cannot satisfy these requirements, we will regretably be unable to release equipment you.

All Dry Hire fees must be paid prior to the release of any equipment to you. We accept payment in Cash, by Cheque (subject to clearance terms) and we also accept payment by PayPal. We have no method of accepting direct payment by Credit or Debit card, but you can use these to pay us via PayPal.
Depending on the overall value of the equipment we may be required to take a fully refundable monetary deposit which will be refunded upon the return of items hired.

Below is a sample of some of the equipment we have available for Dry Hire - if what you need is not listed, please contact us and ask, we can probably supply it for you. Prices indicated are for ONE DAY of Hire. Weekend Hire is DAY PRICE x 1.5; Week Hire is DAY PRICE x 3.
