The Rental Process
Every order follows the same process:
What Do I Need to Rent from Lightbulb?
We expect customers to purchase their own rented equipment insurance policy from a reputable US Insurance vendor. Customers must provide us a copy before checking any hardware out of the warehouse.
Your rental agreement will include a total of the cost to replace all of the items in the event of theft or damage. This will tell you how much coverage you will need to get for the project.
PAYMENT BY CREDIT/DEBIT CARD
We have an easy-to-use Lightbulb Payment Portal. We will send you a link to fill out a quick form with your card's information, and then payment will be processed immediately.
You will receive an email copy of the receipt for your records, and your job's final invoice will reflect those payments.
A VEHICLE FOR GEAR
Gear can be tough to move. Plan ahead, and think about the dimensions of your vehicle and what you're ordering.
If you are looking to rent a van or a truck, we recommend the Uhaul, around the corner from our shop. For larger productions, you can talk to Courier Car Rentals and Edge Auto Rentals for vans and trucks.
If you're not sure what vehicle to bring, feel free to ask your rental agent for an estimate. We'll take our best guess from our experience!
Lightbulb does not currently rent vehicles to customers, or allow customers to drive our vehicles.
You're gonna love this - There is none. There are no PDF's, no application forms, no clicking furiously, no printing anything out. Zero. We're completely paperless and PDF-Free!
Once you reach out to us to start an order, we will get you a rental quote as quickly as possible. Then we collect all the rest of the info we need from you effortlessly as the order comes together. But we promise we will never make you fill out PDFs, send in PDF credit card forms, or anything of the sort.
If you are representing a company that needs a formal legal review of a rental contract, we can offer a generic copy of the rental contract for review that includes the maximum length contract text. Our rental software dynamically-updates the rental agreement to fit your job (meaning sections are added or removed as appropriate). Since this is algorithmically-generated and we cannot edit it for a single customer on our end, there are no alterations accepted for the rental contract. Please let your legal team know this before they begin their review.
