Rental Options

Customers find it useful to rent our meters because:

  • It is a chance to evaluate the meter as a potential purchase (and if you go on to purchase the meter then the rental cost is deducted from the purchase price);
  • You may only need a meter for certain times of the year;
  • Your budget can afford a smaller, regular payment more easily than a single CAPEX item.
  • You want to own a meter and would like to spread the payments over a long period.

All our rental meters are supplied in the standard package that you would get if you bought the meter outright, and benefit from full warranty support. Long term rental costs include an on-going warranty as well as a periodic return-to-base service and calibration check.

Note that all prices are in British Pounds (£ GBP), and are subject to VAT where appropriate. Despatch is normally 5 working days from receipt of order & payment. For long term rentals (12 months, or longer), ongoing payments are required monthly / quarterly in advance of the rental period.

Please contact us by phone or email to discuss your requirements.

Long term rental

If you take a long term rental then the meter kit is yours to keep after the final payment. A long term rental, therefore, can be seen as a way to spread the payments of a meter purchase over a longer term.
