Kelm Hire Kelm Hire Hiring Policy

When it comes to hiring tools and equipment, there are certain things you need to consider before you get started. Of course, it’s important to do your due diligence by reading customer reviews and finding a hire company that has high quality equipment, service and delivery standards – but what about the fine print?

Although it’s tempting to skim over the details when you’re in a hurry to get the job done, it’s not worth the potential financial and logistical headache during your project. As a rule, things you should look for in a hiring company’s T&Cs include: 

  • Whether or not you are required to pick up and drop off the equipment yourself.
  • Whether the equipment you’re hiring requires a specific licence. 
  • If you are liable for any damage to the equipment. 
  • Payment terms: when is the full payment due?
  • Is there a minimum rental period?


To help our customers avoid hidden costs, liabilities and unexpected surprises, we’ve put together this helpful guide to the Kelm Hire Hiring Policy. Here are the key sections you need to have a look at and what they might mean for your equipment hire:


Binding contract

This section of our hiring policy outlines the fact that the contract is binding for both you as the hirer and us as the equipment owner. That means, once we offer you equipment at a specific price and you sign on the dotted line, we have both entered into a binding contract. Until you have accepted the offer, Kelm Hire can withdraw it via email, fax or letter at any time. Typically, this is because the equipment is no longer available.


Terms of payment

Like any hire policy, Kelm Hire’s terms and conditions outline the fact that, when we hire out equipment to any business or individual, we must provide them with a tax invoice. If payment in advance or COD is required, it must be paid before the equipment is dispatched.


The equipment

At all times, the equipment hired to any business or individual will remain the property of Kelm Hire. When we deliver the equipment, you must inspect it to ensure that it is in good working order and suitable for your needs. Any malfunctions in the equipment we provide must be reported to us in writing within 24 hours of delivery. 

While you, the hirer, are in possession of the equipment you are a bailee. That means you must:

  • Exercise reasonable care and due diligence in accordance with Manufacturer’s specifications.
  • Return it to Kelm Hire in good working condition.
  • Ensure that, if Kelm Hire is collecting the equipment from you, that it is ready to collect at the agreed time and place. 
  • Not tamper with or attempt to repair the equipment.
  • Be responsible for any damage or loss caused to the equipment.
  • Keep the equipment safe and secure during the hire period.
  • Not remove or deface any label on the equipment. 
  • Not allow anyone to misuse the equipment.
