Had a great day, all very well organised by Mark and the gang. They were really accommodating and even kind enough to give us a lift back when we got a bit stranded! Would highly recommend!

We had a two day hire arranged and Mark & team couldn't have been more helpful. They were flexible on the drop-in and pick-up times and locations. All equipment included and we enjoyed a thoroughly good weekend.
