General notes about insurance concerns.
Check your business or home contents poilicy – you may already be covered for equipment on your premises. Perhaps call your insurance company and get temporary cover, or ask the venue owners if hired equipment is insured under their contents policy
If cover is not possible, not available or too expensive, as is often the case, our advice is that the hirer should inform their management and staff that the person or company that hired the equipment from SoundWorks is taking full responsibility for the hired equipment. Common sense prevails; ask for and follow set-up and operating instructions, employ security, keep the public away from the equipment, or, hire experienced tech support to operate. 

To summarise; SoundWorks does not provide any insurance cover for you or for your event. SoundWorks is not liable for any injury caused by or in any way related to the equipment hired. You are responsible to effect and maintain your own insurances for your event including but not limited to public liability and property damage insurance.
Note: These provisions are standard, there are no sound hire companies in New Zealand who will automatically have their hire equipment fully insured when out on hire - it's just too expensive and would increase the hire costs substancially. The hirer is responsible for all loss and damage of the equipment while on hire.
SoundWorks is able to offer a SSSP, (site specific safety plan) for any event at any location, on request.
General notes about Noise Control Officers
Beware of the Noise Control Officers from Auckland Council. If a member of the public complains about the sound levels at your event you will get a visit from 'Noise Control' who will ask you to turn it down if they think it's too loud. Sometimes they carry a decibel meter. If an annonymous member of the public thinks you have not turned it down enough, Noise Control will come back, shut you down and take the gear away, they may also have the Police with them.

If they do take the gear away, you will get a  Noise Control Seizure Notice documenting the items seized. You are unable to emit noise from the property for the next 192 hours.  You will have to call 
Auckland Council (Noise Control option)  09 301 0101 quoting your Noise Control Seizure notice number.  They will then email you an Application for Return of Property form and the fee you have to pay, which is up to $450.  Ask them for the closest Council office near you, or a local public library.  You must go into the offices and physically pay the amount and get a receipt in your name. Make sure you bring a proof of ID (driving licence , passport, etc).They will then arrange for an interviewing officer to contact you in the next 3 – 5 days.  The interview is simple and can take place over the phone.  They are just confirming that you have paid the fee and that you are the person who is collecting the equipment.  Following the interview you are instructed to collect the equipment from the noise contractor, for example, Armorguard in Spring Street, East Tamaki.  Once again bring a proof of ID.

Hire charges continue until the equipment is returned to our depot – although this is at the discretion of SoundWorks. Just keep us advised of things.

Having said all that, SoundWorks has only once in December 2023 had equipment confiscated and yet Noise Control have turned up at many private events we have supplied. Often they just informed the event organisers there has been a complaint and they will request the sound is 'turned down', which actually means 'turn it off'. Most people comply with the Noise Control Officers, and that's our advice. In brief; it's your responsibility. Contact numbers for more information:  Auckland Council (Noise Control option)  09 301 0101.
