Trollies Hire

Q: How long can I hire for?

A: Short-Term Hire - With options from one month up to one year, the hire periods are flexible enough to fit the demands of your busy season or workload.

A: Long-Term Hire, the most cost-effective option. A long-term lease means the trolleys are in your possession for a minimum of five years. At the end of the five-year period, you can either return your trolleys, or your lease will auto-renew, with no additional lease fees! Annual fees still apply

(Annual maintenance and administration fees will continue to be charged every April for as long as the trolleys are in your possession)
