Delivering the Highest Standards in Survey Equipment Hire

When you hire survey equipment from us, you will always get peace of mind. 

All our geospatial instruments are maintained in our Trimble accredited workshops – which just happens to be located at our largest regional hire depot in the UK, and we also have our Dublin workshop that services our Ireland-based customers. 

Our laser scanners, total stations and other surveying equipment are maintained to manufacturer standard, as well as being regularly updated and calibrated before we deliver it to your site. We follow a strictly BSI-regulated procedure to ensure that our product hire service is always of the highest standard possible.

Whether you’re looking for short-term solutions or long-term hires, we have the right mapping and surveying equipment to help. We aim to offer next-day delivery service but if you require a same-day delivery, KOREC will strive to achieve that. We’ll even deliver your equipment ourselves if it means you get the service you need.

Why hire instead of buying your survey equipment?

It’s cost-effective

Access industry-leading surveying equipment without a hefty purchase cost. Only pay when you need it.

It helps you balance your project costs

Lower cost-per-piece of equipment helps your budget stretch further. It gives you the freedom to get all the right geospatial equipment you need, ensuring your project goes as quickly and easily as possible.

It’s convenient

No need to worry about storing expensive equipment safely or securely for long periods. Contact us when you’re finished and we’ll whisk the instrument away for storage.

It’s quick

All our hire surveying equipment comes fully calibrated by our technical support engineers. Every instrument is ready to use from the moment it’s delivered to you.

You’re fully supported

You’ll never be left scrabbling for answers with our equipment for hire. From the extensive resources in our Knowledge Base, to the experts in our customer service team you’ll have full technical support and troubleshooting whenever you need it.

What does the equipment hire process look like?


Typically, the first thing we’d do is find out exactly which equipment is going to serve your needs best. If you aren’t quite sure, not to worry! Our dedicated hire service staff are always ready to offer guidance and advice, on everything from total station hire to GNSS system or laser scanner rental.

There’s also an option to visit our hire workshops if you wish, where we’d be more than happy to give you a demonstration in how our products work.

Product Check

Whether you want to hire a total station, laser scanner or GNSS system, once it’s been decided which products you’d like to hire, all the equipment will be thoroughly checked in our workshop to ensure it’s in perfect working order and ready to use.


Unless a delivery date is agreed, we would aim to send out all equipment within 24 hours. To ensure maximum efficiency, we also have our own delivery drivers to ensure products are delivered in exactly the same condition they left the workshop.

Having this autonomy also means we may be able to accommodate same-day requests if logistics allow. You’re also more than welcome to collect from our workshops if you’d prefer.

Equipment Use

There’s no time limit on how long a piece of equipment can be hired for. All our equipment is hired out on a weekly rate, with the expectation of the larger laser scanners which can be hired on a day rate.

During this time, we’re always on hand to offer support and advice. We have a dedicated hire service hotline for our clients, so you can rest assured you’ll always be able to contact us when needed.

Returning Equipment

Once your work is done, all you have to do is give us a call to tell us you’d like to return your equipment and we can start the off-hire process. We can either arrange a collection or you’re welcome to return the equipment to us yourself.

Once the equipment is back in our workshop, we’ll do the post-hire check to ensure everything is as it should be. If there are any issues, such as missing cable or antenna, we’ll let you know so you can return it to us, we typically give 10 days for this.

We work to a 28 day invoicing period for all of our equipment hires, once all is checked and any issues sorted, a final bill will then be issued.

If there is a survey or mapping instrument you require that is not listed, please don’t hesitate to call us and we will do our best to help you.
