How Does It Work?
Rent, shoot, return. You choose what you want, when you want to collect it, and for how long you want to rent it. You email us to confirm availability and we will get back to you within 1 working day to confirm your booking.
You can also call us to check availability. Please ask for the rentals department and we will try our best to assist you with all your requirements.
Once we have confirmed that the equipment is available we will email you an invoice for the period you require the equipment. You will need to make a payment of 50% within 2 working days to reserve the equipment as there could be another customer wanting the same equipment for the same time period.
For first time customers you will need to sign our terms and conditions and email it to us with a copy of your ID document/Drivers license and Proof of residence [utility bill, rental agreement] at least 48 hours before collection date.
You collect the equipment from our branch and when the rental is complete you return it back to our branch. Once we receive the gear back in house, we inspect and clean everything within 1 working day. Barring any damage or missing items- your rental is complete!
Please note that without the terms and conditions signed and copy of your ID and Proof of residence [utility bill] received we will not be able to release the equipment.
What Is The Condition of Your Rental Equipment?
Very good! We test, calibrate, and clean our equipment after every rental. There may be a few cosmetic flaws from a well enjoyed rental but each item is checked for full functionality before it leaves our office.
Can I Reserve a Rental Item?
Yes, we take reservations for any item in our inventory however we will require a 50% deposit from you to reserve it as there might be other customers wanting the same item for the same period.
When Does My Rental Begin?
It begins the day after you collect the equipment and it ends on the date stipulated on the invoice and rental agreement. The date you have to return the equipment will be clearly marked on the paperwork we supply you.
When Can I Collect my Rental?
You can collect your rental from 1pm on the day before your rental starts. So if you have booked for the Wednesday you can collect it from 1pm on the Tuesday. Please note that all our branches close at 4.30 pm.
