Private/Individual Media Clients
Individual clients should provide us with their account/billing/home address and contact information as applicable, and supply two trade references. Again these are preferably other facility houses but production companies or other professionals are acceptable. We kindly ask that you complete the account application form below and submit it to us at least 48 hours before your hire. You must also provide us with proof of “hired in equipment” insurance for value of the full replacement costs for the equipment being hired.
If you don’t already have insurance there are a number of companies that offer insurance on a short term ad-hoc basis. Their inclusion here does not mean we approve or recommend them in any way and would also advise you to chose a policy that adequately covers your specific requirements.
Your first hire with us is on a 100% prepayment basis and will be invoiced for prior to the hire which should be settled immediately preferably via a BACS or CHAPS transfer, however payment on collection is also permitted. (Please note at this time we cannot accept credit/debit cards and ask that payment is only made via one of the following: CHAPS, BACS, Cheque and Cash). All subsequent hires can be invoiced and settled on 30days. In the event that a first hire is cancelled (minimum 24 hours advanced notice) after making prepayment a full refund will be given.
Due to the increasing nature of fraudulent hires and thefts within the broadcast industry we may ask for a deposit to be made upon equipment collection which shall be returned upon its safe return. This amount will be proportional to the costs of the equipment requested and will be advised prior to collection / delivery. We will also require proof of identity and address for the hirer and may ask you on collection of the equipment to bring with proof of identity, see below for what we can accept as proof. All new clients must complete the form below and in submitting this form acknowledge and agree to abide by our terms and conditions. We may undertake a credit reference check against you or your company and in submitting the form below you grant permission for us to do so.
Proof of Identity
All clients will be requested to provide proof of ID upon collection, as with private companies these are:
- 1x Form of photo ID (Passport of Drivers License)
- 2x Utility bills for your billing address.
Original documents must be provided and photocopies will not be accepted. We will then make our own copies of these which are taken and stored with your account application for reference. We may ask to take digital photo of you upon collection of equipment in addition to the above.
