14' Truck Delivery: +$175/Day

Big jobs require big vehicles. If your order is too large for our van, then we'll get a truck to make sure the delivery goes smoothly. Most rentals will fit in a 14' Truck, but we'll let you know if your order requires a bigger vehicle!

Long Distance: $0.65/mi

The term “+milage” above means “Plus Milage and Tolls.” Tolls are calculated at cash-value for a Class 2B Com vehicle (which may be more than a standard car) and milage is billed at 0.65/mi via the truck route that the vehicle took. Gas is included. Deliveries to NYC 5-boroughs addresses already include milage/gas/tolls.

After Hours: $75/Hr

If you need gear, we’ll get it to you. Our standard hours are 9AM-6PM M-F, excluding weekends and national holidays. We offer pickup/dropoff for other hours with a $75 after-hours fee per hour on each pickup. A round-trip job where both are outside of standard hours starts at 2 x $75/hr.


We offer free tandem gear pickups from these local vendors, along with your Lightbulb order!


Our after-hours program means that whenever you need gear picked up or dropped off, we'll have skilled technicians ready to help. 24/7.

Delivery Standard Agreement

For the safety of your staff and our crew, we have a few standard rules:

Standard Pickup and Return Times

Standard Delivery and Pickup times are 9am-6pm M-F, excluding weekends and national holidays. We offer After Hours service for all other times (including holidays). If you need gear, we’ll get it to you. 

After Hours Pickups/Returns

We offer pickup/dropoff outside our regular hours with a $75 fee per-hour on each pickup. A round-trip job where both are outside of standard hours starts at 2 x $75.00/hr

Deliveries and Pickups are Curbside Only

For insurance and safety reasons, we cannot enter your shooting location with equipment, or to take equipment back out for a pickup. Your crew must bring the equipment to the curbside to meet our van!

Multi-Day Shoots

A Round Trip pickup/return does not have to be same day to get the Round Trip rate. You can schedule them independently and still get the discount. If a 14′ truck is necessary, that rate is "Per 24hr Period".

All Items Shipped must be Received On Set

There will be no rejections from the order (unless a mistake is made on our end). This specifically applies to our pre-built equipment packages.

Truck Orders will be shipped in Hampers and Crates

 ... when possible. Please make sure your location can store hampers, as we cannot always take them back in the delivery vehicle.

Schedule Changes must be Announced

 Please let us know if your shoot is running late or ending early. We require 3hrs notice to change schedule and make sure we can arrive on-time. Rush pickup or rush dropoff under 3hrs is "as-available" and we cannot guarantee specific timing. 

Rush Pickups are Subject to Additional Fee

Rush Pickups are subject to a rush fee of $75/hr. Rush pickup is any driving that's within 3 hours of a client calling to request an urgent pickup. 

Long Returns are an Addtional Fee

Long returns are subject to an additional fee (meaning making the driver wait more than 30 mins past the scheduled time to begin loading.) The fee will be assessed at $75/hr, rounded up to the nearest hour. 

Guests are not allowed to enter Lightbulb’s Vehicle

... whether for loading or riding. We cannot accept passengers or guests by state law. Please wait by the end of the lift gate if you're enthusiastic about helping our driver get your order out quick and easy! 

Free Tandem Equipment Pickup Scheduling Requirements

We offer free equipment tandem pickups for the following suppliers. If you need us to pickup hardware from these suppliers, you must provide us a final copy of their gear list 48hrs in advance of the order. Equipment pickups are subject to available cargo space after Lightbulb loads their hardware.
