How long can I rent a laptop for?
With our short term laptop rental service, you can hire a laptop or suite of laptops from as little as one day upwards. And if you are unsure of how long you might need a rental laptop for, no problem, you can always cut the rental short, or extend the rental so you have the laptop(s) for longer. Get in touch with our friendly team and we will arrange collection by our couriers and refund or take any difference in price due with your agreement. We are able to be really flexible so just ask!
Whatever your need
Whether you need a short term rental for a day or two to cover a conference, festival, additional staff or to temporarily replace a broken machine(s), or whether you need to hire one laptop or 20+ for 3 – 6 months or longer, we can help. Renting is a cost effective, no worry solution when you choose Smart.
When you hire your equipment from Smart Computers you can be sure that it is in good hands. We have a network of dedicated couriers ready to fly around the country at any time.
How long will the laptop take to arrive?
It is always best to plan in advance if you know you have a rental need coming up, especially if it is for 5 or more laptops. This allows us time to do the relevant checks and tests we need to do. However, we find that often the need is fairly urgent and laptops are required in the few days following an enquiry. In most cases this is absolutely fine. There is some paperwork that needs completing when you agree to a laptop rental contract from Smart, and we ask this is completed before a 1pm cut off along with payment. This allows us time to arrange the courier and offer a NEXT DAY delivery service (providing the laptop(s) you require are in stock). If you miss the 1pm cut off, the laptops can be delivered within 48 hours generally – note, we do not deliver on Saturdays or Sundays. Speak to the team for more guidance.
Our courier service works across the whole of the UK, and we are able to offer an installation service too. This is charged at an additional cost, please ask a member of the team if you require installation and set up.
