About this agreement

These are terms and conditions for the hire of products to businesses or consumers. They are intended to be sent out with a quotation or placed on your counter, ready for a customer to sign. You can also adapt them for use on your website.

We use audio-visual equipment as the example type of product that you might be hiring out. However, the document could be used for any type of equipment or product, from vintage clothing to machine diagnostic tools.

You might rent the equipment on a short-term basis while you are not using it, or you may be in the business of hire.

The benefit of clear terms

Our use of plain English makes this document easy to edit to match your business model, without having to be your own solicitor.

T&C are probably the best example of a legal document where use of plain English strengthens the legal effect. If a dispute should arise, it would be hard for a hirer to claim that he did not understand, even if English is not his first language.

Using this professionally drawn document will give you the confidence to know that your valuable goods have the best possible legal protection.


This agreement includes provisions for:

  • the basic contract
  • includes alternative draft quotations text
  • responsibilities for delivery and return covered, with options
  • compliance with Consumer Contracts (ICAC) Regulations 2013
  • compliance with your return and refund terms
  • extensive disclaimers place liability on hirer
  • loss or damage caused by third parties
  • breakdown and repair of equipment during hire period
  • hirer indemnifies you
  • miscellaneous legal matters

Alternative to this agreement

If your hire only to other businesses, you will not need to comply with consumer protection law. Our B2B version of this agreement is a simpler document for such circumstances.

Review of the Australian version
Easy Customisation

The template was perfect for what I needed, and explained in clear English what was to be expected of the owner and the hirer. The only reason I didn't award 5 stars is due to the fact I couldn't find another template suitable for another requirement I had, for a template contract related to the sale of services with a focus on indemnity (I am a newborn photographer and wish to have a contract for clients to sign related to provision of services and indemnity should something happen to them/their child during the shoot).
I decided to buy from you because I felt your templates provided good value for money, were easy to understand and customisable to my needs within reason. I would recommend Net Lawman to others, and thank you for making the process easy.
