Scaffold Rentals

Hire or PurchaseAre you a scaffolder needing scaffolding for a contract, but don’t want to buy? SafeSmart Rentals provides a dry rental service from all our NZ locations, allowing scaffolding companies to say YES to contracts, regardless of availability of their own gear, thereby aiding cashflow.

Talk to us about our dry rental options to get the gear you need now, with no capital outlay, and look for this icon within this website for products available for both purchase and hire.









Fixed term rental agreements are offered for a duration to suit the renter, with rates based on the total period of rental (longer durations will attract more favourable rates). Required equipment is delivered to one site at the rental commencement date as specified in the rental agreement for use as required.

How does SafeSmart dry rental work?

The rental period begins on the day the equipment is received onsite as per the agreement. The renter is required to confirm receipt of all items listed as being delivered and notify SafeSmart Access of any missing item(s) on the day of receipt. All scaffold components included within the rental agreement may be used by the renter at their discretion and are to be returned to SafeSmart Access’ Wiri yard within 2 days following the date of expiry. Hire of the scaffold equipment will be charged for the duration of the agreement regardless of its utilisation.

What if I haven’t finished with the gear when my rental agreement expires?

Should the scaffolding equipment be required for a period beyond the expiry date, a subsequent fixed term rental agreement can be arranged with 3 days’ notice. The new rental agreement will commence the day following the date of expiry of the previous agreement, with a new expiry date agreed to suit the renter. Rates for the original contract will remain valid for the subsequent contract.

If I finish with any of the rented gear prior to the agreement expiry can I return it early?

You may return any item to SafeSmart Access any time up to the expiry date of the agreement. SafeSmart Rentals is not obligated to refund or reduce originally agreed rental rate for early return of equipment.

What happens if I do not return the gear on expiry of the rental agreement?

SafeSmart Rentals requires all items listed on the rental agreement to be returned to SafeSmart Access within 2 days of the rental agreement expiry date.  Any items not returned on time will incur a non-refundable penalty fee as details in the rental agreement.

Can I purchase ex-rental scaffolding that is no longer subject to a Rental Agreement?

SafeSmart Rentals often have Ex-Rental Gear for sale at competitive rates.


SafeSmart’s Dry Hire service has allowed me to build my scaffolding business with minimal capital outlay - and my monthly payments are tax deductable, aiding cashflow.  It makes good business sense for me to rent from SafeSmart at this point in my business.” – Wiremu Gray, Evolution Scaffolding


SafeSmart Access is not responsible for any incident resulting from the non-compliant use of scaffolding equipment, and strongly recommend review of, and adherence to the PROSCAF SAFETY GUIDELINES, and the Worksafe website before installation and use of the equipment.
