    Anyone else come across this a local person has his combo amp speaker pack
    up on him. UK manufacture and inside warranty but quoted by the company at
    least 10 days to repair and he would have to pay one way courier cost of a
    30Kg lump. Maybe they would have refunded that but his bugbear was the 10
    days plus 2 transits time delay, he would have had to hire a replacement for
    the coming weekend. I said I could probably turn it round in a few days with
    about 80 percent probability of not having to wait for spares. Repair was
    actually mainly an amp that does not seem to be aware that it will be
    sitting on a vibrating box in its working life, plus a couple of other minor
    problems.
    Anyway returned to owner in 3 days with cost a bit over the one way courier
    cost, anyone know what the hire cost is for 2 to 4 weeks of a 200W bass
    combo ?

    Certainly likely to be several 100s of pounds. It'll vary hugely who you go to.
    Figure not less than £30 for a very competitive daily rate.

    They charge £180 p.w. for a very nice Trace Elliot. Hire companies tend not to
    hire out rubbish.
