We are glad to offer postal hire locally and around the UK.

We offer short, free appointments with one of our experts to discuss your needs. This is very helpful if you’re not decided on what is best/will fit/be most comfy!

How to arrange a postal hire

Please create a hire account with up-to-date card details, make your choice of carrier via our catalogue, then pick the dates you need. (Don’t forget to include the extra days it may takes to post and return!) Let us know you wish it to be posted.

We send our hires via Royal Mail Special Delivery (a tracked and insured service) to ensure your carrier arrives in good time.
