When would you need to hire equipment?

Gators at an eventThere are stages of event production that would require hiring equipment for. These stages are:

  • Pre-Event - This is when you need to set up the area of the event. This could be protecting the ground, setting the area for controlling the crowd, or erecting temporary structures with the help of our telehandlers, boom lifts and scissor lifts.
  • During The Event - This can be keeping the event running with power (using our generators), having welfare facilities available and lighting areas for the public that are being used.
  • Post Event - This can be using the same equipment used in the pre-event stage to help set down the structures created.
