Save hours on logistics with Deel Equipment

Managing the equipment process in-house often leads to a poor employee experience, tax non-compliance, and thousands of wasted hours for People Ops and IT teams. That’s where we come in.

Laptops, monitors, and headsets, oh my! Getting remote hires what they need can be a logistical nightmare—from finding a local supplier to filling out customs forms and tracking the delivery.

According to Hofy, a global equipment provider, it takes an average of over 1.5 hours for an employer to organize one international equipment delivery. And about 2-3 additional hours to sort out collection tasks like finding a courier and filling out international customs forms. It all adds up to days spent navigating this mundane process. IT demands won’t slow down as your business grows, and 10 new hires could mean 30 devices to source, ship, and manage.

Does the client pay a security deposit for the equipment?

If the equipment is out of stock, can a replacement be ordered?

Out-of-stock orders get placed on backorder; when this occurs, we’ll send an email to the team member with an expected shipping date. New hire laptops get marked as crucial, so if a computer is not in stock, Hofy Support will notify the team member’s manager with a proposed solution and ensure the new hire receives their laptop. Once it’s back in stock, the order will ship.

How can the employee/contractor track estimated delivery time? Is there a track & trace link?

Yes, a tracking link is provided for every order via email.

What happens if an equipment item is damaged, who is liable?

Hofy issues replacements for any products that arrive damaged or don’t arrive. All equipment comes with a premium warranty that includes the manufacturer warranty coverage for the lease’s lifetime. Loaner laptops are provided for items damaged after usage while an audit of the damage occurs. Once repaired, the team member will receive their device back, and the Deel customer will be responsible for repair costs.

Are there any options to purchase the equipment after the rental period?

Currently, renting is the only option. Members can reach out to Hofy directly to see about requesting an exception.
