Hire Procedures for Corporate Events, Weddings, Shows and Concerts and Personal Hire


What is the process for corporate events and weddings?

Here is a description of what you can expect from Edwards: visit the webpage or download the pdf


What happens if Noise Control seize equipment I hired?

You pay a fine when you collect it from the council on Monday and then return it to us. Hire charges accrue until returned to our warehouse so it is cheapest to get it back early!


Is hire equipment insured?

Not by us while it is in your care. If we are setting up and operating everything then "probably yes", otherwise you must arrange insurance for loss or damage, or check that it is covered under your "House and Contents" insurance policy which it most often is.


Doesn't the bond cover damage?

We only charge a small bond so it might cover minor damage, or maybe late hire return charges. You are liable to make good any damage or pay replacement costs if equipment is damaged or lost while on hire to you.


What happens if I can't remember how to put all my equipment together when I get it home?

Call us! We will talk you through the setup. Think about the signal flow. A CD player goes OUT to IN on a mixer, then the mixer goes OUT to an IN on an amplifier, which goes OUT to an IN on a speaker.
