The Benefits of Two Way Radio Hire

Managing a public event/display can be quite stressful and the use of two way radios can be a critical in ensuring that these events run smoothly. Most organisations will not own their own two way radios so a cost effective option for them is to hire.

A large number of organisations in the UK use two way radios for the first time when they hire radios to run a small event such as a country fayre, show, fete, sporting event etc. Hiring two way radios is the best solution as it is on a short term basis. A short term radio hire requires no capital outlay…you only pay when you need and use them. They also provide an effective way for your team to communicate with each other over a site, hopefully leading to a well run event as well as increasing the health and safety for both your team and guests.

Two way radios, by the way they operate allow your team to communicate with each other at the same time without the onerous task of contacting your team individually on a mobile phone. It’s a simple, press the ‘Push to Talk’ button and everyone on your channel can hear you, which is especially useful if you need to get important directions to the team quickly and clearly. Additional channels can be programmed into the radio so that you can manage your team in groups e.g. you could have channel one for everyone, channel two for car parking, channel three for catering and channel four for the management team and so on. By just selecting a channel you can call those who need to hear your instructions.

Hiring radios on a short term basis also means that you can get to use the latest radio technology with much less commitment than if you were going to purchase them outright. If you like what you are using, and think that they can provide value to your organisation, you can talk to your local radio dealer about either putting them on a longer term hire or even an outright purchase.

Most Icom dealers have extensive hire fleets which provide a convenient yet economical solution for a short term as well as longer term requirements. This is especially useful if you are seasonal business and you need to use radios for a longer period. Each dealer will have extensive industry experience and can provide anything from simple, basic two way radios to a complicated multichannel business radio system. More importantly they will have local knowledge and will understand your specific needs to give you the right system.
