3D Scanner Store has a huge fleet of hire equipment enabling us to facilitate rapid response & turnaround times. The almost certain availability of equipment is extremely valuable to our customers & this allows our clients flexibility when planning projects. We all know how difficult it can be to plan projects around customer demands with regard to lead times.
We are able to ship scanners nationally (& globally with special permission). This can be done with surprisingly short lead & transit times.
We do not charge our customers for transit or downtime.
We can be extremely flexible and we are able to deliver & collect scanners out of hours and from anywhere in the UK under special arrangement. We strive to make the hire process as effortless as possible for our customers.
Our team of technical support staff have a huge wealth of practical knowledge in a diverse range of measurement applications. We are therefore able to guide, assist & advise you every step of the way. As Faro’s exclusive training partner for the UK for Focus3D systems we have an unequalled knowledge of the equipment. Our post hire support is 1st rate.
At 3D Scanner Store we offer several different hire options:-
1. Self-hire of equipment and accessories only
This option is best suited for intermediate or advanced users that have experience with using the scanners & data processing software. We would normally recommend that customers attend our 2 day basic training course prior to a self-hire.
2. Hire of scanner, accessories and operator
Clients are able to oversee one of our experienced operators carry out a live project and gain a feel for how the process works. Customers may wish to work as a collaboration in which case we would simply provide the scanner and operator.
3. Bespoke hire and training on live projects
We are also able to roll the scanner hire and training into one if needed. This way a structured training course is delivered on a live project. The client gains training at the same time as delivering a commercial project.
4. Overseas hire
Under special arrangement we are able to facilitate scanner hire globally with, or without, an operator.
5. Hire with insurance cover
We are able to arrange insurance cover for clients who do not have their own insurance cover.
6. Advanced training and consultancy
We can offer advanced training & or consultancy for intermediate / advanced user. Very often a list of specific requests can be addressed and we would tailor your learning to your exact requirement.
