Your FAQ

Question: How long do I wait for Equipment?

Answer: Following the assessment, any recommended equipment which is held in stock by our Stores should be delivered within seven working days (we do recycle equipment in order to make best use of resources, so some items you receive may not be brand new, however they will have been thoroughly checked and cleaned to ensure they are suitable for re-issue).

Specialist equipment which needs to be ordered, and which may need to be manufactured specially, may take longer to supply, depending on the manufacturer and also subject to the release of funds.

Most minor adaptations such as the fitting of rails should be carried out within seven working days, depending on the type of work.
