Open An Account
If you’d like to hire from us, you need to complete our account application process.
The process includes the supply of two trade references who will be contacted to confirm your trading status and payment history.
In addition, please supply us with a copy of your insurance policy cover note that provides adequate cover for the equipment you’d like to hire.
This can be emailed to email@example.com. Alternatively Shift 4 can provide insurance in certain circumstances – please enquire.
If you are a sole trader or freelancer, we will also require the following when you come in to collect your first hire equipment – we will then take copies and return originals to you:
- Originals of two utility bills showing your full name and current billing address.
- The original of your passport.
If you are a company, we also require a purchase order document (with order number) on company headed paper. This can be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please allow a minimum of 48 hours for your application to be processed. Completion of an application does not guarantee that an account will be opened.
For first time hires, we ask for full payment in advance along with a £500 deposit, refundable upon return of the hired equipment. Payment and the deposit can be taken with a credit or debit card either by phone or in person at our offices.
There is a minimum first hire charge of £100 + VAT.
