Naturally, when it comes to buying gear online you don’t have to go quite as far as America. We have an excellent online store right at your fingertips, excellent delivery service all over South Africa and Namibia and if you did want to visit us in store, be sure to grab a free coffee. Remember we also have an excellent Rentals department at Orms, so if you are interested in trying something specific before making up your mind, be sure to give the team a call. In addition to all of that, we also do Used Gear. You can find out more about how that works in our Guide to Buying and Selling here on Orms Connect, or by getting in touch with the Used Gear team.
