Although there is nothing that can beat a professionally set up and run disco, live
event or conference with one of our top quality DJs, or lighting and sound
engineers, there are occasions when this may not suit you. If you want to
hire just one or two lights, a set of speakers, already have a DJ, want an
evening of Karaoke for a house party, need a screen or projector and PA
for a presentation or product launch or simply fancy having a go yourself,
then we offer the opportunity to hire all the equipment you need.
Much of our equipment is relatively simple to use and is supplied in good
condition with all necessary connecting and power leads (but not mains
extension cables) and clamps for lighting. It is regularly maintained and
checked for electrical safety (PAT tested). We offer a basic explanation
of how it works when collected or delivered and online links to
instruction manuals and video demonstrations are supplied beneath the
relevant item (where available).
Although we endeavour to supply the item described whenever possible, we
reserve the right to supply alternative equipment of an equal or greater
specification if unavailable. We are always adding to our hire stock with
the latest technology, so if there is something that you need but donít
see listed, please contact us.
As well as simple packages which are extremely popular, we also offer the
individual components separately to
enable you to hire just what you want or to add on special lighting or
special effects to those basic packages. If you are unsure of what you
might need, we are happy to advise you on what will best suit your event.
Items are priced on a daily, weekend or weekly rental basis. Daily rentals
run from midday on the day of hire until midday the following day, Monday
to Friday. Weekend hire (2 days) runs from midday on Friday until midday
Monday. In the case of a bank holiday, the rental period will be extended
but still treated as a single weekend hire and charged at that rate. Items
rented on a Friday that are not returned the same day will always qualify
as a weekend hire.
PRICING & PAYMENT
We can accept payment by cash, cheque, bank transfer or most major debit
and credit cards. If paid by cash, cheque or bank transfer, we require a
security deposit as indicated alongside the rented item(s). If paid by
credit card the security deposit is not required but we do require
pre-authorisation (but do not actually charge the card at that point) for
the same level. In all cases the hirer must agree to be responsible for
the cost of repair or replacement of the hired goods. Security deposits
will be returned in full (assuming that the equipment is returned in the
condition it was originally supplied) by the same method as originally
A non-refundable booking fee of 25% is payable upon booking
equipment, but this is credited against the total cost of the rental. Full
payment and the security deposit is due on collection or delivery when
paid by cash, bank transfer or credit card. However, if payment is to be
made by cheque, full payment (including the security deposit) must be
received no later than 14 days in advance of rental date to allow for
cheque clearance. We can also accept payment by PayPal, but any such
transactions are subject to a 4% surcharge to cover PayPal charges.
DELIVERY & SETUP SERVICE If you donít have the
time to collect and return the equipment yourself, donít have transport
large enough or are worried about the technical issues in setting it up,
we offer a service, where we will drop off and collect the rented
equipment from the venue of your choice. We can also set it up for you,
optimised to the surroundings.
The charge for local delivery or collection within a 10 mile radius of
Sevenoaks is £20; for locations more than 10 miles away, we charge an
additional 45p per mile in each direction. If you also wish us to set it
up as well as deliver it and then take it down after the event, prices
start from £50 (including local delivery) for one of our small packages.
Please ask for a quote for your particular requirements.
