Equipment hire is exempt from OT charges; unless part of an "all-in" deal.

Equipment Insurance Responsibility

All kit provided by me for use on production is rented to the production company and should be covered by Production Insurance. This is especially relevant to equipment not in my direct control; i.e. radio mics, IEMs or other kit used by people other than myself.

All equipment lost or damaged by cast or crew through misuse or misadventure must be covered by Production Insurance.

Production are also responsible for kit held in storage areas, both on the day and overnight.

International bookings must also provide appropriate travel insurance.

Full breakdowns of kit values are available on request.

If you think a description is unfair or misrepresented then I will consider returns and refunds.

Queries are welcome on all items prior to purchase.

I am not a creditor. Any client suggesting payment terms in excess of 30 days will be rejected.
