Why Hire to Buy?

The Concept2 SkiErg was designed to replicate the poling action used in all types of skiing, but offers much more than that. It provides brilliant core exercises and body conditioning as well as ski specific training.

The Indoor Sport Services hire to buy scheme provides a perfect no obligation way for you to try a brand new Concept2 SkiErg in the comfort of your own home or gym before you commit to a purchase.

All hire to buy agreements have a 6 month minimum hire period

A Brilliant Core Trainer and Body Conditioner

The range of movements possible on the SkiErg concentrates the work through the upper body and core muscle groups. Exercises strengthen the core muscles, abdominals, back, shoulders, arms and legs, whilst providing a high level of cardiovascular and neuromuscular fitness. They are simple to do, can be performed at very low intensity and provide a noticeable improvement very quickly. In addition to the core and toning benefits the exercise range is superb for developing flexibility, coordination, balance and posture.

Get Fit to Ski

Whether you are a cross-country or downhill skier the SkiErg is the perfect training tool for you. It provides the combination of leg and core strength with poling action that is required in all skiing disciplines. In addition to improved fitness, balance and flexibility, using the SkiErg can help you enjoy your skiing trip right to the end.

Subject to an administration/carriage charge of £75.00 for Concept2 Machines and a minimum six month hire period.

How It Works

Getting your equipment:

There are 2 different forms depending on whether the application is for an individual or a commercial institution. Once you have decided to hire simply fill in the relevant application form:

Individual Application Commercial Application


You will be asked to pay the first month's hire to buy fee(s), the £75.00 per machine admin charge† and £50.00 refundable deposit via our secure SagePay page. We will then email you a link your completed application form that you just need to sign and return to us with a copy of your passport or driving license and a current utility bill. Once we receive the paperwork, (you can fax, email or post this to us ), we will contact you to within 1 business day to organise delivery of your hire machine (Standard delivery is included and is a specified working day but no specific time can be given. AM delivery is available for £15 and Saturday delivery is available for £25).

The £50.00 deposit is fully refundable on the condition that the machine is returned in good condition and with all the items it was delivered with.

The hire to buy fee will then be taken from your account by direct debit each month on the same date as the delivery took place until you decide to return or purchase your SkiErg

If you fall in love with the SkiErg:

If you fall in love with the machine you have on hire you can purchase it from us. We will deduct 50% of the hire to buy fees that you have paid so far and the machine will fully belong to you.

Returning the SkiErg:

When the SkiErg is delivered by courier and you have set the it up, keep the packaging in a safe place (garage/shed/loft etc). If you decide that the SkiErg is not for you and the time has come to return it then simply repack the machine in the packaging it arrived in (see FAQs for instructions) and give us a ring. We will book a courier to come and collect the boxed machine from you on a weekday of your choice between 9am – 5pm. Should you lose or discard your packaging, we can send you a replacement at a cost of £30.

For hire applications of 5 machines or fewer the admin fee is non-refundable on return of the machines. For 6 or more machines the admin fee is refundable on either purchase or return of the hire machines subject to a 6 month minimum hire period.
