Dry Hire

We’ve been leading the way in broadcast rental for 30 years, and in that time have been continually investing and exploring innovation to enable you to focus on serving your audience.

With no hidden surprises, we manage your risk and help you take care of your reputation.

Whether you need to add to the kit you’ve already got because it needs that something extra, you need the latest technology to equip your production or if you need to add an unusual element to your next shoot, we can be there to make sure that the kit is where you need it, when you need it.

But having the hardware is only half of the story.

While some of our customers know precisely what they want and trust us to deliver a complete working package, others may need a bit more support to build their system. An exact configuration may need to be worked out, or you might have an idea and not know if it’s even possible to do!

Our expert staff know the right questions to ask to ensure you get the right solutions – complete, comprehensive and concise. And, if necessary you can even talk direct to the engineer on the bench who has prepped the kit.

Your expectations

We know and understand that you have deadlines and all kinds of deliverables to meet, especially on tight budgets.

Our team understand that the technology you require has to be faultless. It has to arrive tested and ready to use at a moment’s notice. It has to be clean, calibrated and configured for your requirements and it has to be cost-effective.

We are on the end of a phone 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year, so you can be sure that you can speak to one of our experienced team members who understands your predicament and pressure whenever you need to, regardless of your timeframe.

But our skills extend beyond the conventional dry hire.

Our specialist knowledge and experience in audio and RF is unrivalled. Our wireless coverage has ensured flawless live pictures and sound from events as diverse as the London Boat Race and a state funeral in Singapore.

The trust factor

Trust is a big part of risk management. When we reduce your risk it enables you to trust us to provide the best solution available.

It’s as important to us that we have thorough quality control, with our test & engineering departments  examining all outgoing and incoming kit, as it is to you.

Every single piece of equipment is checked, tested, fully cleaned  and realigned before it’s put back on the shelf ready for its next outing.

This programme extends beyond the routine; the rigorous check and test methodology is repeated when the kit is hired out – however large or small the production/event – and all software upgrades and recommended modifications are done so you can be sure you are using the latest from the market leaders.
