Equipment Insurance

All equipment is covered by insurance and included in the hire fee with an excess of $500. 

If the equipment is lost or damaged, photohire Ltd will charge the full current replacement price or value of the repair, whichever is most suitable to photohire Ltd up to the value of $500.

Person Responsible

It is important that the person responsible for hiring the equipment maintains direct care of the goods, as they will be liable. If they let someone else use the equipment they are still responsible if something goes wrong. 

Insurance Notes

Equipment left in unlocked premises, unattended cars or left unattended on location is not covered. 

Any equipment taken on to beaches, wet places or in or near any hazardous locations may not be covered by insurance, so if you have any doubts please ask first and we will check.

All electronic lighting and digital cameras are susceptible to dust, humidity, damp, and rain and if you intend to operate our equipment in these conditions you will need to take extra care to keep it dry and clean.
