What you really need to know about renting from Boels
Renting at Boels is actually very simple. Let us explain to you how it works and what it costs. That way you won't be faced with any surprises afterwards.
Discover how we make renting equipment as easy, carefree and clear for you as possible.
Bring proof of identity with you
In all Boels branches, we ask private customers who rent from us to identify who they are by providing a valid ID card with a passport photo. You are only allowed to hire equipment upon presentation of a valid passport, driving licence or identity card.
Do I have to pay a deposit?
Our machines and tools are worth a considerable amount of money. That's why we require a security deposit from private customers and companies that don't have a Boels account. The deposit amount varies depending on the item. Have you returned the item to us in good condition after the rental period? Then we'll give you the full deposit amount back. Any security deposit paid by debit card will usually be on your bank account in two working days.
Are there costs for cleaning, repair and wear and tear?
All machines and tools you hire from us are clean and in good working order when you collect them. We also expect you to return them clean and in good condition. If this isn't the case, we may have to charge you for cleaning and/or repair costs afterwards.
Wear-and-tear accessories you hire with equipment, such as diamond blades and diamond drills, are charged based on a cost table. For sharpening hired items such as chain saw chains, chisels, drills and planers, we charge a one-off fixed rate.
How do we calculate the costs for consumables?
The costs for fuels such as petrol, kerosene, gas and diesel are calculated on the basis of actual consumption. We make sure you have plenty of fuel at the start of the rental. Naturally, you won't be charged for any Aspen bottles that you return unopened.
Materials such as sandpaper, grinding wheels, etc. can be purchased with the hired machine or tools.
Unused materials/sealed containers can be returned. You will then be refunded the rental or purchase price.
Can I also have machines or tools delivered and collected?
Delivering equipment to your site and collecting it again is never a problem at Boels Rental. Please remember that you pay a fee for the transport costs.
How are the prices calculated?
The prices stated on the website do not include costs for maintenance, fuel, oil, sharpening, wear, transport, cleaning and accessories. We also don't include any environmental levies or surcharges for the Damage Waiver & Fire/Theft Scheme.
What's the difference between daily, weekly and weekend rates?
Boels lets you decide how long you rent equipment for. One day, a weekend, a week or longer? The longer you rent our equipment, the cheaper the rate. The total amount you end up paying is based on a maximum number of either rental hours or operational hours. And at weekends you rent at an even better rate.
|Rate||Maximum rental period|
|Daily rate||24 hours|
|Weekly rate||168 hours|
|Weekend rate (Saturday - Monday) - 1x the daily rate||48 hours|
|Long-weekend rate (Friday - Monday) - 2x the daily rate||72 hours|
When you hire equipment at the daily rate, you can use the tools or machines for up to 24 hours. Let's say you pick up the equipment from us on Monday at 10.00 a.m., it needs to be returned no later than 10.00 a.m. on Tuesday.
At the weekend rate (Saturday - Monday) you hire the equipment for a maximum of 48 hours, but you pay 1x the daily rate. Suppose you hire equipment at 10.00 a.m. on Saturday morning (branches are open on Saturdays from 8.00 a.m. to 12.30 p.m.) and you return it on Monday before 10.00 a.m., you only pay 1x the daily rate. Sunday is free.
You can also opt for the long-weekend rate (Friday - Monday). You rent the equipment for a maximum of 72 hours and pay 2x the daily rate. In other words, if you hire equipment on Friday at 1.30 p.m. and return it on Monday before 1.30 p.m., you only pay twice the daily rate. Sunday is free.
Are you renting equipment with an hour meter? Then the daily rate is based on 8 operating hours. The weekly rate is based on 40 operating hours. If you use the equipment for more hours, you pay a surcharge based on actual costs.
