Customer Flowchart Guide

You can download the flowchart guide below to help ensure the correct terms are used when hiring to your customer, and the correct checks are made.

Clarification on Sub-Contractor Status

From time-to-time, a hirer/customer who wants to hire your plant and equipment will view you as a sub-contractor and insist you sign their terms and conditions. 

To avoid any misunderstanding as to your status - that of a plant supplier and not a sub-contractor - the download document below is a draft letter, that can be ‘top and tailed’ with your company information, which you can then send to the hirer/customer.
