Do I need identification?
We may request two forms of identity at the time of hire. A Debit or credit card, together with a driving license or current utility bill showing your address are ideal.
How and when do I pay?
All major credit cards are accepted. In most cases this means that your hire is completed before your card statement is due. For long-term hires, charges are made at 2-week intervals.
Cash or Debit Card
Customers who prefer to pay in advance will be asked for a deposit of around twice the weekly hire rate. On return of the equipment we deduct the hire charge and refund your balance.
Ultraquick 30 Day Account
If you wish to hire on a regular basis with up to 30 days credit, please call into your local branch.
Do I need to pay a deposit?
Deposits are required for all equipment hire. We may ask for a 2-week deposit which will be refunded upon return of equipment.
Will need Insurance?
For small items, we can offer Ultrasure cover which is chargeable. For larger items such as Plant, we will expect the client to insure the equipment and proof of insurance will be required before the Plant can be delivered or collected.
What's the difference between 110v tools and 240v tools?
240v are traditionally used in domestic circumstances, using mains electricity. 110v tools are normally used on building sites. 110v tools can be run from the mains, but will require a transformer to do so. Both are safe when used properly.
What is my responsibility for equipment return?
Equipment remains on hire (and chargeable) until returned to us. If you require a collection, please telephone and ensure you obtain an 'off-Hire' number. Security of equipment remains your responsibility until returned or collected by us.

Some amount of dust is acceptable. However a cleaning charge will be levied if equipment is returned dirty.
What happens if something is broken, damaged or missing?
We do charge for broken, damaged or lost equipment. Your are responsible to make sure the equipment is secured when not in use and protected from weather damage, vandalism or loss. You can avoid the risk of unforseen charges by taking one of our Damage Waiver options. Our highest level of protection, at 15% of the hire rate, protects you against the cost of theft and repairing damage of the equipment, up to the value of £2,000.
Our standard level of protection, at 10% of the hire rate, protects you against the cost of repairing accidental damage of equipment.
