Hire equipment orders

Sometimes it may seem easier to hire equipment for a short period. But it's important to consider purchasing equipment rather than hiring as a cost-effective solution.

Short-term equipment checklist

If you answer 'yes' to any of the questions below it is appropriate to proceed with purchase or to re-issue equipment with a recall date.

  • Is the equipment on the ACC list?

  • Is there a re-issue item available? (check equipment inventory in the MRES app)

  • Is the proposed equipment for hire likely to be re-issued to another client?

  • Is the hire needed longer than 2 months?

  • Is the anticipated total cost of hiring more than the purchase?

If none of these applies, then it is appropriate to proceed with the hire.

Note: Hire equipment can also be considered if urgent and available faster than purchase.
