What’s in a Wet and Dry Hire Agreement?

Wet & Dry Hire Agreements usually contain clauses that outline the following: description of goods, payment, dispute resolution processes, customer obligations, liability, term of hire, and what happens with damaged goods. Also, this document will usually contain a cover page where the hirer can fill out all the hiree details (including name, address and term of hire); viewable alongside the attached T&Cs. Having a properly drafted Wet and Dry Hire Agreement is essential for protecting your rights, limiting your liability and avoiding unnecessary disputes. In particular, it’s really useful because of its ‘damaged goods clause’, which states that the hiree will be responsible for repairing any damaged equipment or machinery. It’s important to seek legal assistance when preparing a Wet and Dry Hire Agreement to ensure all these key components are properly captured.
Our fixed-fee Wet and Dry Hire Agreement packages start at $1450 + GST. This includes a Wet and Dry Hire Agreement drafted to your business’ needs, phone consultations with a Sprintlaw lawyer, and a complimentary amendment to the final draft we provide to you.
A Wet and Dry Hire Agreement covers the hire of both the machinery and the operator who will operate this machinery. On the other hand, a simple Dry Hire Agreement does not include an operator; covering only the hire of the machinery.
