Hire – How to Pay

IF YOU HAVE ANY QUERIES, give us a call on 0345 230 1381 (a mobile-friendly number).

Baptistry Hire Prices

Use the tables below to calculate your hire & carriage fee.  For example, a standard nonagon hire with heater and standard carriage would be £350 (the £150 bond could be sent as a separate cheque if there is time).  If you didn’t want a heater, deduct £25.  All hire prices already include VAT.

Or use the booking form at the foot of this page and we will do the workings out and email you the completed paperwork and pro-forma invoice.

Payments for hires can be made by BACS, online banking, card over the phone or by cheque.

The hire is for all necessary equipment: a baptistry; heater (if ordered); pipe for filling and emptying; tap adaptors; an electric pump for emptying; insulating cover; basepads to protect floor and liner, and a step for in the water (additional steps may be available if requested). Full instructions are also enclosed.  The only thing you may want to supply yourself is a hosepipe; our piping can be used to fill but is designed primarily for emptying the baptistry.  We normally send the baptistries in a combination of card board boxes for the panels, and plastic crates for the kit.

The carrier (DPD) generally give an estimated time window for delivery or collection. The address for delivery and collection needs to be staffed 9-5 on the days of delivery and collection.  If this is not possible, consider using a home or work address. Our full terms can be found here Terms and Conditions of Hire.  Terms and Conditions of Hire.

*Delivery Options

DPD are the standard as they are the cheapest to the customer and give a time window for delivery.  Other options are:

  1. DHL service is available for the Nonagon and Croydon pools only.  DHL are the most reliable courier we have found but they do not always give a time window hence the need for the venue to be staffed 9-5.  This costs an additional £75.
  2. Parcel Force fall between DHL and DPD.  Again, they do not give a time window for their arrival, so the need for the venue to be staffed 9-5.  This costs an additional £25.
  3. We can also send them palletized if you are able to re-palletize them for the return trip (re-usable straps and pallet wrap is provided!) prices depend on distance but a 2-3 day service this way is often CHEAPER than DPD.
  4. Customers local to our depot in Mid-Wales may wish to use a ‘man-and-a-van’ service or to collect and return in person, this can save a lot of faff for both sides.  Please contact us to discuss this:  0345 230 1381 or via the contact sheet below.

Cut-off point for despatches: for any weekend hire, the cut-off will be noon the previous Tuesday for pools, and noon the previous Wednesday for any smaller items such as heaters.   Items can be sent out after this time but they may not arrive in time.  For heaters, there is the option of them being sent by Royal Mail for a higher delivery charge.

Please contact us to ask about leasing a baptistry as this will work out as a better rate: on the 5 year lease, as soon as you use the pool for the third time in the year, you’ve saved money!
