Frequently Asked Questions.

Q- Hi, I need some help, something’s not working right.


If you’re having a little trouble with the equipment you hired from Steadlands then don’t panic. You can call the office during normal working hours and ask for free help and guidance. If it’s out hours and it’s an urgent matter you can call us on 07920 773 217 – it’s helpful if you can text first, this gives us the opportunity to find somewhere quiet to talk.

Q- Can Steadlands deliver and collect my hired equipment?


Unfortunately, this isn’t something we currently offer.  We can arrange for local courier service to deliver and collect your hire booking for an additional charge if you wish.

Q- How big a car do I need to transport hire equipment?


The biggest of items are the flightcases which store four of the LED lights for storage and transportation. One case is rather large and is probably best securely strapped into a van if you need more than one lighting kit.  If you have a big enough 4×4/SUV type car, for example a Nissan Qashqai with the rear seats down, then you can fit in 1 flightcase.  Yamaha portable PA system should fit in a large car boot.  The longest item is the lighting stands at 2m long.

Q- Insurance


You need insurance to hire equipment.  You need to check with your insurance company that you are covered for loss and damage of hired equipment.  We will request that you produce proof of insurance either in person or via email at the time of booking.  On collection day, you will need to bring with you two forms of identification-  passport or driving licence and utility bill are acceptable. We will securely store copies of your insurance and ID on file for the duration of you hire.

Q- Can I extend my hire period if I already have the equipment?


Yes – well sometimes, if the equipment is available and not already allocated to the next customer. If this is the case, we can simply extend your hire period and take additional payment over the phone or in our office. Your insurance may also need to be notified of the extended hire period.
