When your equipment budget does not quite stretch to buying from GEN3 outright, we can sometimes offer a rent-to-buy plan.

The process is simple, we structure a rent to buy plan to suit your needs. The basis of the arrangement is rental (for a minimum of 3 months). There is always the options to buy at any stage and any rental payments made can be discounted from the sales price leaving you only the balance to pay. The precise detail of your rent to buy plan will vary on circumstances and equipment value. Terms and conditions apply. Please contact us for further information.


A new feature to GEN3 is our TechShot™ page.

We pride ourselves on the quality of our technical back-up to customers.
We believe that the most effective communication tool is to offer a comprehensive range of support information through our free TechShot™ service.

TechShot™ includes:

  • Latest news and updates from GEN3
  • A forum where you can share your questions to be answered
  • Industry leading advice
