Rental Agreement Terms and Conditions
LUM-N-8 LIGHTING & GRIP, INC. encourages the renter to inspect and test all rental equipment prior to said rental. Except for normal wear and tear on rental equipment, the renter assumes all responsibility for damage and or loss of rental equipment.
Equipment should be returned in the same condition as when it was picked up. An appropriate clean up and/or repair charge will apply to equipment or packages returned in non-rental-able condition, due to damage and/or a degraded state caused by contact with elements such as mud, sand and salt water.
The acceptance of the return of the rented equipment is not a waiver of claims by LUM-N-8 LIGHTING & GRIP, INC. that it may have against the renter for latent or patent damage to the equipment caused in any way by or because of renter’s actions or inaction.
Spare bulbs are furnished at no extra cost. Burn-outs must be returned. Renter will be charged for broken or missing bulbs. There is no burn time charged on any of the lamps or instruments.
Delivery charges will be billed where applicable.
Expendables and other supplies used from the rented truck are sold on an "as used" basis, meaning that renter will be charged an additional amount for each expendable or other supply kept on the truck that is used by renter.
As a free service to production companies and producers, as well as to try to assist in the hiring of the most qualified personnel possible, LUM-N-8 LIGHTING & GRIP, INC. will call and book grips and electricians for your shoots when requested. However, such individuals are paid directly by you and LUM-N-8 LIGHTING & GRIP, INC. accepts no responsibility or liability for their actions and/or injuries to them. You are responsible for negotiating rates directly with freelancers. You are, of course, free to book your own crew, subject to the following clause.
LUM-N-8 LIGHTING & GRIP, INC. requires, in most cases, the right to designate one or more of its designated contractors to be hired to drive the rented vehicle and/or operate the rented generator(s) and to otherwise work with the rented equipment on the production. However, such contractor(s) will be working for you as stated in the above clause.
