  • How Long Can I Rent For?

    You can rent by the day, week or month. We specialize in renting for short term needs and events. When renting monthly, the final month can be prorated for a partial month's use.

    Get the latest technology delivered directly to your event for a fraction of the cost of purchasing equipment that you will only need for a short term.

    A qualified business rental with a true short-term need requires 2 years established business history and an identifiable online business presence. If a customer doesn't fall into that category it is most likely considered a personal rental and we can not assist in these cases. For more information check out our Business Rental Requirements
