Walkie Talkie Hire - Common questions and answers




Q: How do I Hire?

A: Contact Digitall Comms Ltd on either by phone 01274 602 504 or by email for an instant quotation.

Preferably with a Purchase Order provide the following information:

- Confirmation of the equipment required.
- Confirmation of hire dates.

A confirmation email will be returned and the week prior to despatch an invoice will be forwarded for immediate payment.  Once you have used our services we are more than happy to offer standard payment terms of 30 days.

Should you be a newly incorporated company or have no financials lodged at Companies House additional identification may be sought.  If you are a company we may ask for a copy of your letterhead and if you are a sole trader we would need proof of address.  We would require a copy of your driving licence and a copy of either your bank statement or utility bill.  The radios would also need to be delivered to this address.

Q: Do you include chargers with the walkie talkie radio hire?


A: Yes, and the chargers don’t add any additional fees.



Q: How far do the hired walkie talkie radios transmit?


A: The range of walkie talkie radios are dependent on objects between transmitting/receiving radios. But usually, in urban areas the range is from around 1 - 2 miles and 2 - 3 miles in rural areas.



Q: Is a license required to hire your walkie talkie radios?


A: You do not need a license all equipment will be programmed to our existing license prior to despatch.



Q: What is your minimum/maximum walkie talkie radio hire time period?


A: Minimum: one day and the hire radios are available for as long as you require.



Q: Is there a difference between analogue and digital walkie talkie radios?


A: Yes. Analogue radios broadcasts as a continuous stream of electrical signals, which makes the transmissions easily interfered with by natural disturbances such as storms etc. But, analogue will still provide some kind of signal even when interfered with.

Digital radios don't send a continuous signal. When a digital signal experiences interference, the entire signal is lost. However, when the signal is present it is easier to tune into than analogue. Also, digital radios can reduce background noise and have a larger range.
