Once your registration is accepted, you will be intimated by email and given a unique identification number for all our future transactions. You will also receive two discount coupons worth Rs. 250 each (totalling coupons worth Rs. 500 off), which can be used to avail of a discount on any two rental transactions worth a minimum of Rs. 500 each within six months.

Once you have been given an identification number, at any time you need equipment, you may enquire about its availability by sending a booking request and reserve it in advance, or simply walk into our store and hire any equipment that is available.
Your booking is confirmed only upon 100% advance payment. We do not block equipment without payment for more than a few hours.
