SAY NO TO SUBHIRE
IF YOU HIRE KIT FROM BUDDHA GROUP IT WILL ALWAYS BE OUR OWN EQUIPMENT - WE PROMISE
WE NEVER HIRE IN GEAR FROM OTHERS TO COVER HIRES - EVER
In the early days of Buddha Group (When we were known as Event Buddha) we had lots of sub hire arrangements in place to sub hire equipment. When we were fully booked with our own inventory, we supplemented that stock with gear from partners. This is something almost all hire companies do, but it comes with some major pitfalls, that we quickly discovered.
Quality of kit can never be guaranteed
Specification of kit can never be guaranteed
Delivery of kit can never be guaranteed
Additional charges cannot be controlled
....plus so many other aspects which remove the control we have in ensuring our customers are looked after 100% of the time.
We are super proud of the quality of our kit due to our RENEWAL PLAN and our service from start to finish. Sub hiring equipment was starting to damage that.. so we made the decision to stop.. and since then we have had no problems... we promise we will never sub hire equipment ever again!
Always make sure your supplier assures you your kit will not be sub-hired!
PS - We do offer sub-hire the other way, many hire companies including most of the Nationals now hire from us on a regular basis.
