Where do you hire your kit from for projects or shoots?
This is primarily for UK readers. I am very keen to know where amateur and professional creatives hire their kit from.
If you're looking to rent photographic or AV kit at very low prices, or want to make extra money it's worth checking out this site www.kitmapper.com.
It is a peer-to-peer rental for creatives, it's both for professionals and amateurs needing short-term rentals of creative gear — such as cameras, lenses, lighting, projectors, monitors and TVs, sound recording, VR kit and much more.
KitMapper is not only unique in the fact that it is a platform for you to network and borrow gear from like-minded individuals, both Lister and Renter using KitMapper are covered by their KitMapper Guarantee, a legal rental agreement which makes sure you’re covered should anything happen to the kit whilst it’s out on hire.
Why use KitMapper?
The online platform allows creatives who own kit to loan it to users who are looking to hire kit, the prices for hires are set by users with the recommended price of 30-50 % less compared to rental houses.
You can make money from the equipment laying around not being used all the time. It's quick and easy to rent it out to other trusted users. You could make over £1000 a month from renting out kit.
You can access professional or niche pieces of kit which are not cost-effective to buy for short-term projects. Hire the kit you need from someone in your location for low prices.
