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.
Ordering hire equipment in the MRES App
When creating an order scroll down to the 'Hire products' section and complete the fields:
Product field - no input required, automatically defaults to ‘ENZA276 – Hire – As Quote'
Supplier, if it is included in the Supplier list. If not, please leave as “No Supplier”

View your hire equipment orders
You can view all your equipment hire orders by selecting the ‘Hire Order Report Assessors’ option from your dashboard. The report displays the following information:

Status = ‘Waiting Invoice’ (until the hire order is complete)
Hire Billing = Dates of hire period (months)
Hire Billing ‘True’ = Supplier invoice paid
Hire Billing ‘False’ = Supplier invoice not received.
