Frequently Asked Questions


Do you hire portable air conditioning units to private residences? 

Sorry, we only work in the commerical sector and do not provide temporary air conditioning to cool your lounge or bedroom.

Do you arrange delivery?

We sure do. A freight charge applies but this charge will also include installation of the units you are hiring and their pick-up when you are ready to return them. Deliveries and pickups are generally made between 8.30am and 4.00pm Monday – Friday 

Do you clean your air conditioners?

Yes! Filters and coils are cleaned and, together with internal ducting, are treated with food grade bacteriacide between hires.

How many branches do you have?

We have one branch in Auckland and service the greater Auckland region only

Do I need to have an account with you?

Payment before delivery is required for initial orders. We can send you a credit application form to be completed and returned for on-going long term hires.

What if I cancel my order?

In the event of a cancellation by the customer up to five (5) days prior to any hire of equipment Airconditioner Rentals reserves the right to charge a cancellation fee equivalent to the costs incurred by ACR covering administration fees, freight costs and/or any loss of hire if applicable. Unfortunately credit cannot be issued for Goods ordered and delivered, but not used by the hirer.

Do you have EFTPOS or credit card facilities?

Yes - we accept payment by EFTPOS, MasterCard and Visa, or you can pay via Internet Banking.

What are the advantages of hiring instead of purchasing?

Renting is a great solution for your short and long term Air Conditioning requirements, offering:

  • Total Flexibility - Why commit to purchase or long term lease! With rental you can return or exchange equipment when your needs change.
  • Reduced Capital Requirements - Don't tie up your capital in depreciating assets when you could be using it to increase profits! With rental you don't need to find the cash to buy equipment and it doesn't appear on your balance sheet.
  • Tax Deductibility - Did you know that rental costs can be claimed as a tax expense?
  • Predictable Cash Flow - With rental you pay a fixed amount each month;  maintenance is at our expense (with the exception of a unit being contaminated, damaged, changed or set up by the client in a way that has caused the unit to malfunction).

Do I need to clean the filters? 

Yes, when dusty filters need to be vacuumed to ensure they work efficiently.

Do I need to duct the hot air out of the room?

Yes, this needs to be done on all portable units. We normally duct the hot air into the ceiling cavity or if this isn't possible we will duct out through a window. If you have a suspended ceiling we will insert one of our custom-cut half tiles to allow for tidy ducting into the ceiling area.

How long is my quote valid for?

Our quotes are valid for 30 days and product is subject to availability at the time of booking.
