Frequently Asked Questions


Click on a question below for more information

When do I need to book for recording equipment hire?

It’s always best to book as soon as possible. We don’t hold equipment based on quotations and get very busy near the end of school terms.

Which type of recording equipment hire do you provide and which is best?

It all depends on what you are using planning to record. We stock a range of equipment and have experience of location recording.

If you call us, we can advise.

Are cables included?

Yes, we supply short cables with all equipment. However if you require longer cables, please add the 20 metre XLR cables or a multicore to your basket.

When will the equipment be delivered and collected?

Our couriers work Monday to Friday only. Your equipment will be delivered on the working day before and collected on the working day after between 9am and 4pm. Unfortunately we can’t give more accurate times.

However if you provide us with your mobile number you should receive a text with a 2 hour time window on the morning of delivery.

Will you come and set up the equipment up for us?

In certain circumstances, we can provide a technician. Contact us for details. However we are a “dry hire” company, meaning we usually supply the equipment by courier and leave you to set it up. We send you a simple guide for how to do this and supply 24 hour telephone support.

We take payment by BACS or with a card online or over the phone. We accept all cards, except American Express. In addition, for certain customers, we offer 30 day payment terms (with a purchase order).
