Playground Hire / Lease

When the capital/budget constraints prevent purchasing a new PlayLand outright, then consideration should be given to either hiring or leasing as an alternative.

Hire involves a relatively short term using one of Playtec’s available rental stock.

Leasing is a longer term option where clients can select a brand new PlayLand under an operating lease. The principal differences of longer term lease and the short term hire is that:

  • Hire stock is limited. Playtec have four hire playgrounds available and they may not be available at any one time.
  • Stock hire PlayLands are well maintained but are used and it is obvious they are not new
  • There is limited ability to adapt stock hire PlayLands to the centre’s particular needs. For example, change the shape, reduce height or width to better suit site characteristics.

Long Term Lease Option

Under a longer term operating lease Playtec can provide (subject to usual approvals) a brand new PlayLand. The operating lease would have a minimum term of 24 months and clients can choose a new PlayLand either from our PlayLand library design brochure or have a PlayLand tailored a little more for their site needs. At the end of the operating lease there are three possibilities:

  1. clients can talk to us about purchase;
  2. renew the operating lease; or
  3. ask us to pick it up.

This is a brand new PlayLand so the monthly cost for the operating lease depends on the size, style and PlayLand features. If this is an area you want to explore further, please contact us to discuss.

Short Term Hire Option

The following information relates to short term hire options available.

Current Availability

We have four hire stock PlayLands (the designs and photos of these can be seen above), however, only PlayLand Option 1 is currently available. Please find below information about all the options. We can not determine when a current on hire PlayLand will become available until a month or so before the expiry of the rental period.

Hire Options

All the hire options are designed for children up to five years of age. PlayLand Option 1 and 4 are the larger options and offer the most activity for children. However their size is not always suitable. Playland Options 2 & 3 are ‘low level’ PlayLand playgrounds, perfect for mall environments where there maybe sight-line sensitivities with adjoining retailers.
