Price increases from June 19th

Coventry Slings has been running now for an amazing three years, and we have grown and changed so much in that time. In that time we have only increased prices once, but now we feel the time has come to make a few adjustments.
Most of the changes are very small, so we hope that it won’t put you off using our services, however we are always to discuss payment options to help you when you need it. On a case by case basis we may be able to offer a payment plan or discounts so please don’t hesitate to contact us.
These changes will come into affect on June 19th.

Sling hires

Prices for two and four week hires will remain the same at £10 and £15 respectively and will continue to be half price for members. However there will no longer be a discount for renewals, these will be at the same price as the initial hire period. Members will continue to receive a 50% discount on the fees.
If you are hiring from a one hour or longer consultancy appointment you may also opt to have a one week hire for £5.
Hires will be available from all sling meets, and by arrangement from the homes of the consultants out of meet hours. Out of hours doorstep collections have a charge of £2. If you require a 15 minute demo at one of our homes out of hours this has a charge of £5.

Consultancy Packages

We are changing the prices slightly of our packages, and introducing some new ones. We are also updating details of when we will travel to consults and the cost involved.
All one hour or longer consultancy Packages include a £5 discount on any hire. This means a non member can have a free weeks hire following a consult, and a member can have two weeks for free.

All consultancy packages take place at the consultants house or include travel within a 5 mile radius of the consultants home. Travel further afield incurs a fee of 0.50 per mile and will be arranged with the consultant in advance
If the appointment runs over by more than 15 minutes the consultant reserves the right to charge an extra £3.75 per 15 minutes
