About Us

Distinction AV is based in Dorset, providing equipment hire including PA, Lighting, Video and Stage Hire. We are a small business but we take pride in what we deliver to our customers and ensure they are satisfied every time! We also have an amazing team who want to ensure your event goes without a glitch, every time, which is why we spend so much time in the background ensuring everything is ready so you don’t need to panic. Plus, we really love what we do!


We started 5 years ago, when we were working on a production and found a lot of equipment was failing which we had hired from another company and we got fed up with the poor quality of the equipment so we decided to start renting out our equipment to ensure other people did not have the same experience as us!


We are different to other AV hire companies because:


  • We have got a large inventory of exceptional equipment 

  • We care about the success of your event 

  • Engineers with lots of knowledge

  • We offer delivery and collection, all hours of the day 

  • Our team is always there for you with 24/7 support

  • Regular customers are eligible for discounts

  • ALL of our equipment is PAT tested before and after every rental

  • We can process small rentals within 1 hour of you sending us an email which means if you are stuck on a show we can get equipment to you with very short notice


We found that sometimes hiring equipment can be very draining, but we believe this should not be the case! We will ensure that we take care of all your sound and lighting which allows you to continue the planning of your event whilst having fun doing it!


We have you covered whether you just need one speaker for a party in a garden or a large PA system with a large stage and lighting rig for an outdoor event! We promise a friendly and easy experience when booking your equipment, whilst taking care to understand your exact requirements. We are open from 8am to 9pm, 7 days a week, however please give us a call on 07920 395387, if you need to make an urgent booking or require support, any time of the day!
