Exclamation Easter Bank Holiday hire special offer!

If you have been thinking about hiring a lens, or a camera, or an accessory, over the coming Easter bank holiday period, well here's some extra incentive.

We're offering 20% off all our prices for the four days including Friday (2nd April), Saturday, Sunday, and Monday (5th April).

We don't want all this gear sitting in our cupboard over Easter We want you to be enjoying its use!

The minimum hire period is 4 days for this offer because you won't be able to ship the lens back us until the Tuesday (6th April). But, for example, the deal still works out cheaper than the normal three day rate if you were to hire a 35-100mm f/2. In this case the 3 day rate would be 44.45, but 20% off the four day (48.15) rate comes in at 38.80, saving you 9.35.

The offer is first come first served and I warn you that, for example, we only have one 150mm f/2 at the moment. There is a small chance a second will come into stock before Easter, but it is by no means certain.

You can hire for longer than four days, but only the four Easter period days will be discounted. With the 35-100 example, the saving of 9.35 will be deducted from the rate based on the number of days longer than 4 days you opt for.

In case we are faced with a large number of bookings, I'd advise placing your booking no later than Tuesday 30th March so that there is enough time to process agreements and payments in time for shipping the following day. We can't send out an item if payment is unconfirmed.

Latest shipping (for the UK) is on Wednesday 31st March, for delivery by 4PM on Thursday 1st April (and that's no joke!).

To book your selection, either use the form at http://e-group.uk.net/hire (we'll use the date stamp as evidence of who enquired first) or phone 01442 242 960 during office hours (8:30AM-6PM). Prices and what we have on offer area also at http://e-group.uk.net/hire.

If you have any questions, just post them here and I'll respond as soon as possible!

Re: Easter Bank Holiday hire special offer!

It's worth mentioining that a couple of people who have used the form have found that their enquiry has not got through.

Please ensure that after submitting the form that a (plain) page comes up confirming that your enquiry has been sent.

You will normally get reply within a few hours or first thing the next morning. If you don't, then please email hire@e-group.uk.net, or phone 01442 242 960 during office hours.

We do have a rather determined spammer blocking up our online form at the moment - shame they don't know that their trash only goes to our office.

Exclamation Re: Easter Bank Holiday hire special offer!

Last call! If you need a lens (or camera, accessory, etc.) to use for Friday and through the Easter holiday period, and to take advantage of 20% OFF, you need you need to get your booking in so that we can send the item no later than Wednesday afternoon for next day delivery on Thursday. Ideally, get your booking in by the end of tomorrow (Tuesday), or you could be disappointed.

And of course you could get all or some of your hire fee refunded if you eventually buy the same model item from a bona-fided UK supplier.
