The Benefits of Drone Hire
Drone hire offers a range of benefits for both small and large organisations. Renting a drone provides businesses with a more affordable alternative to buying, offering access to state-of-the-art drone equipment without the large price tag.
DARe-3D’s unique B2B drone hire offers daily and weekly rentals. Alongside drones from brands including DJI, Autel Robotics and Yuneec, we also have a wide range of specialist drone equipment available for hire including payloads, accessories and 360 Degree cameras.
Benefits of Drone Hire
There are several advantages of renting a drone rather than buying outright. These include:
Hiring allows businesses to access drones and specialist equipment as and when required. This eradicates issues of expensive drone equipment lying unused for long periods and depreciating in value.
Drone hire is particularly useful for:
- Conducting Bespoke Missions – Different drones work best for different projects. Drone hire allows you to take advantage of this. For example, a business in the construction industry may hire the DJI Mavic 2 Enterprise Advanced to conduct infrastructure inspections one week and then hire the DJI Phantom 4 RTK for mapping purposes the following week.
- Projects With a Short Time Frame – Hiring a specialist drone for a short duration is much less of a commitment than purchasing. A drone package can be hired for the required period and then returned when no longer needed.
- Business Within the Drone Industry – Companies that operate within the drone industry – whether that be a freelance UAV pilot or a business providing drone services – can hire drones for daily or weekly rentals.
Obtain the Latest Drones and Equipment Available
The drone industry is continuously evolving, with new models constantly appearing on the market with improved and innovative specs. For example, the DJI Inspire 2 which was launched in November 2016 has upgraded features compared to its predecessor, the DJI Inspire 1.
By renting, you can enjoy the benefits of using the most advanced drones available in a cost-effective way.
Try Before You Buy
Drone hire allows individuals to trial drones and payloads prior to purchasing outright. You can test drones from a range of brands to decide for yourself which drone best suits your needs before investing.
You Are Not Responsible for the Maintenance of the Drone
Through our unique B2B drone hire, we at DARe-3D are responsible for the maintenance of our drone fleet. This takes this added stress away from you.
All our drone equipment goes through vigorous quality control procedures before and after being sent out for hire, and we ensure all our drones are consistently maintained to an extremely high standard.
Affordable Alternative to Purchasing
Renting can work out significantly cheaper than buying a drone, especially when drones are being used infrequently or for one-off projects.
This is particularly appealing for smaller businesses who find the large costs associated with buying a drone off-putting. Alternatively, large businesses with an existing drone fleet can hire drones as back-ups when conducting drone missions or hire specialist equipment to add to their kit.
How Much Does It Cost to Hire a Drone?
Drone hire presents an opportunity for businesses to access the latest equipment available without the large price tag. For example, purchasing the DJI Mavic 2 Pro with Hasselblad Camera would cost £1,349.00 (at the time of writing). Hiring the same drone through DARe-3D costs just £99 per week.
We have a range of drones available for hire including DJI, Autel Robotics and Yuneec. Prices vary with our drone package prices starting at £89 per week. Some of the drones we have available for hire include:
Autel Evo II Pro Rugged Package
DJI Inspire 2 Drone Package
DJI Mavic Air 2 Package
DJI Mavic 2 Enterprise Advanced
DJI Phantom 4 RTK Enabled Drone Package
DJI Mavic 2 Pro/Zoom Smart Controller
What You Need to Hire a Drone
DARe-3D’s business-to-business drone hire is safe, simple and secure and was specifically created to enable other businesses to benefit from our wide range of drones and equipment. We offer the latest drones available, delivered to you fast and maintained to an extremely high standard.
All you need is:
- A valid A2 CofC, GVC or PfCO qualification
- Valid insurance for the full duration of hire
- Be a business – whether that’s a freelance UAV Pilot or a large-scale corporation – based in the UK
That’s it – it’s as simple as that.
While there are benefits of purchasing a drone outright – particularly if a drone is being used regularly and a company is in the financial position to make an investment – this is not always the case.
Drone hire offers an inexpensive alternative that allows businesses to use the latest drones and equipment available on the market. Renting provides companies with greater flexibility, particularly for those who conduct bespoke missions and are not in the position to regularly invest in the latest drones available.
