Do I have to rent for a certain length of time?

All our equipment is subject to a minimum rental period and this period can vary between 3 months and 12 months depending on the type of equipment and rental plan selected. This minimum rental period is clearly displayed on every item on our website.

While the nature of your contract is a rental agreement, you can still apply to purchase at any time you choose and make an offer at any price, even during the minimum rental period. Our website gives you an indication as to the value we will consider and a more detailed guide is sent to you at the commencement of your rental agreement. The acceptance of your offer remains at our discretion.
