A. In rare cases when our machinery does break down we will have a mechanic out to inspect it as soon as possible. If the machine is repairable on site then we will do so at minimal inconvenience.  If the machine cannot be repaired on site then we will do our best to replace it the same day.


Q. I'm not happy with aspects of the hire, what should I do?

A. Unfortunately, on very rare occasions problems can arise. We do not wish to leave our customers feeling dissapointed and we will endeavour to reach a resolution as quickly as possible. It is important that any problems encountered are notified to us at the time they occurred.
