Are you satisfied with the equipment that you tried on hire? In that case, you simply pay for the cost of the equipment but you won't need to settle the cost of the hire.
Are you not satisfied with the equipment that you tried on hire? In that case, you simply settle the cost of the hire and try out something else.
