We never like to see you rushed; we want everyone to enjoy the suit as much as possible. For this reason, we ship to you the day before hire starts, so you’ve got it for that little extra time. After all we know you’ll be in it as soon as it arrives.
Spacesuit rental can be done by single days or group days together for a better deal. Weekends are great fun and for those that want something longer we’ve got you covered too.

Fill out the form and our team will be in touch with you promptly. Thank you for your interest!
Please be aware as standard we do NOT rent the suits for use in Europe. This is simply due to the very high shipping costs and the risks of shipping.
We are very happy to work with you on shipping but unlike UK rental YOU will have to pay for the shipping costs.
Some recent costs we have for shipping one suit to Portugal (12Kg , box is 60cmx60cmx60cm) 3 day service fully insured is £134 + VAT EACH WAY!
DHL Next day one way was £534
There is a solution!
We have agreed with clients that they fly the suit out with a member of their crew (or ours if possible) and pay the baggage charge and send the suit in oversized luggage.
We have done this to Romania & Germany. The cost for the flights return was £100 with excess baggage at £106. This had the benefit of being fully accompanies both directions and you have no customs clearance.
So the best thing to do is contact me at Info@Spacesuit.Rentals and let me know your location and dates and we’ll see what we can help work out. There’s always a way!
Where possible we do like to give a personal service.
If we can, we’ll arrive and spend some time with you to show you how to get the best out of the suit. Fitting for the 1st time can be cumbersome, and there are tips and tricks with items like the overboots that can help. Before booking for this amount of time, let us know what your plan is with the suit, and we can work with you to get the best from it.
The collection of the suit will be via courier.
Max Time Shipping
Because we want you to have as much fun with the suit, I’ll always try and get it delivered early the previous day and picked up PM the following day.
I’m not going to get too strict on the time you have the suit we want to be open and flexible. I do however need to make sure the suit is back for cleaning and inspection in good time for the next user.

1. Do not fart in the suit, this is not space; everyone will hear you scream. Seriously it’s awful, just don’t.
2. The spacesuit did get inspected before launch for damage and defects. If there were any found, a defect note would have been attached to the suit. The suit is inspected on its return against this condition note. If there are any defects missed by our inspection team then, do not use for real space flight, and these must be reported the same day of delivery.
3. The spacesuit did get cleaned before rental to you; I understand that dirt is an everyday occurrence, and that is fine. However, any excessive wear or heavy stains will be charged against your deposit. A ‘deep’ suit clean is 50 of your earth pounds while severe stain removal is £100.
4. None of the items supplied in the rental agreement is intended for use in wet weather conditions, as they may succumb to moisture damage.
5. You’ve selected the LARGE spacesuit. This caters for astronauts 5ft 10in to 6ft 2in. Outside of this range it’ll either be baggy or tight. By all means have fun but let’s be careful out there.
6. Helmet! This bad boy may be the most important part of the outfit. Protect it and it’ll keep you (and your wallet) safe. A new visor is £350, and a new helmet is £500. No letting face hugging aliens bust through to try and lay their evil spawn in your belly.
7. Making PSSSHHHHHT noises is mandatory, but telling anyone ‘Houston, we have a problem’ will earn you a time out in the corner of movie quote shame.
8. FINALLY: Enjoy the suit and enjoy yourself.
I love the suit and have started to hire it out so everyone else could enjoy it also. So please take care of it and I’d love to see your photos in it.
