Quality instrumentation is fundamental for data integrity, which is at the heart of everything we do. That’s why clients who hire from us are reassured that the technical equipment they use will always be of the same high standards as our own.
Instrument hire is also cost-effective and stress-free, as clients do not have the capital cost of ownership and all calibration and maintenance is handled by our specialist technicians.
First class instrument hire
With a large stock of instruments at SOCOTEC’s central Bretby facility, and the majority of all repair, maintenance and calibration work undertaken at our own workshops, we can guarantee a fast and efficient service. We will advise on the most suitable instrument for any application and deliver it straight to site ready for use, along with a current calibration certificate so that you can be sure it is the most appropriate instrument for your monitoring requirements For long-term hire we will also ensure that all calibration certificates are kept up to date and notify you when the next service and calibration is due.
