Hire Charges

We pride ourselves on exceptional customer service, as such we provide very flexible hiring options. Please find below an explanation of our hire rates.

1 day = 24 Hours

2 days = 48 Hours

1 week = 7 days. This is timed from the time of pick up on the first day, therefore if you collect your equipment at 9.00am Monday you will need to return the equipment by 8.59am the following Monday to not incur any sub day charges.

Weekend rates (Cash Customers only) apply to hires that are taken between 2pm on a Friday and close of business on the Saturday, and off-hired/returned before 10am on the following Monday morning. If the equipment is returned after 10am on the Monday, our standard 24-hour charging method applies based on a 7-day week.

Sub-days refers to 24-hour periods after the first week’s hire and each sub day is charged at 20% of the weekly hire charge, up to the next full week. For example, if the weekly rate is £100, for any additional days after the first week will be charged at £20 per day.

If an item has a minimum weekly charge, it means that the charge includes hire for a week regardless if you only actually hire it for one or six days.

Price on Application (£POA) – This applies to tools and equipment whose prices may fluctuate or tools and equipment secured from third parties and subject to change. To obtain up to date prices, please contact your local Frank Key Plant and Tool Hire branch.
