BorrowLenses.com is a website that says they provide their customers with the largest online selection of photo and video gear available for rent in a variety of budgets made to fit your needs.
While there are many occasions in which people would like to have high quality camera and video equipment it is often an extravagant purchase that can be out of many people's price range. BorrowLenses.com wants to provide an alternative option for people.
How Does It Work?
You simply go to their website and search through their equipment by category or by using their search feature. Once you've chosen your equipment, you pick the duration of time you will need to rent it, the date by which you need the equipment delivered, and whether you want it shipped or want to pick it up at one of heir locations.
Your rental period is the length of the time you will physically have the camera for; the time it takes your equipment to ship there and back is not part of your rental period. When your rental period is up, you will receive a reminder email the day before the equipment needs to be returned.
Prices are based on the type of equipment you are hoping to rent. Some of their equipment is extremely expensive and may require extra money as a deposit, and rentals will be more expensive depending on whether or not you choose to purchase the optional insurance. In addition their blog offers weekly specials that customers may want to take advantage of.
Customers can receive a refund of their rental fee if they cancel their rental before their equipment is sent out, though there may be a restocking fee depending on how far in advance you cancel. Prorated refunds are also available for customers who return their equipment in advance of the end of their rental period.
