Equipment setup and engineering

We can supply experienced staff to simply set your equipment up and take it down for you or to engineer and run your whole event. Engineer rates start at £20 per hour. Our staff include sound engineers, stage managers, lighting engineers and more.

Terms and Conditions

Equipment hire bookings of £200 or over will need to be secured with a 20% holding deposit. This is refundable up to 48 hours before the agreed collection date. Deposits paid for last minute bookings i.e 48hours before the collection date will be refundable in all circumstances.

On the day of the hire a security deposit will need to be taken on a card, in the form of a Pre Authorisation. The standard amount is £100.00 however for high value hires a larger fee can be applied at staff discretion. This is to cover any loss or damage that might occur when the equipment is in your care. This pre auth amount will be withheld from your account for the duration of the hire and may take up to 10 working days to be returned. Please note that you will be liable for the full replacement value of the equipment, should any loss or damage occur.

In addition we also require a form of photo ID such as a passport or driver's license, and recent proof of address (utility bill or bank statement from the last 3 months).

All hires run on a 24 hour duration from the time you come to collect. Any late returns will be deducted from the deposit.

  • THE HIRER will be liable for the full replacement value should any loss or damage incurred exceed the deposit.
