Rental Policy Terms and Conditions

We know production can be hectic, so we have included a brief overview of our terms and conditions that will hopefully assure that your production proceeds on track and as effortlessly as possible. Please allow sufficient time to complete the paperwork that is necessary prior to the beginning of the rental period. We require three items prior to rental: a signed rental contract, an insurance certificate and a credit card security form. Payment is due at time of rental.

The first item necessary is the Death Grip Electric rental contract; it must be signed by an authorized agent or officer of the company and returned to our office prior to pickup or delivery of equipment. The minimum rental period is one calendar day and all prices are on a per calendar day basis. Weekly rates are available. Rental equipment may be picked up between 12:00 PM and 5:00 PM the day before the rental begins and must be returned before 10:00 AM the day following the last day of the rental. Please help us maintain equipment availability by meeting these times; we appreciate your consideration. Late returns may incur additional rental charges.

Our second requirement is that we have on file an endorsed insurance certificate covering all areas as stated in our rental contract. This can be resolved easily by asking that your insurance agent send an acceptable certificate of insurance to our office. Your insurance should include an ALL-Loss Physical Damage/Miscellaneous Equipment Policy covering the replacement value of the rented equipment and provide a minimum $1 Million in General Liability Insurance. When renting a truck, you need to provide a minimum of $1 Million in Commercial Auto Liability and Physical Damage (Comprehensive/Collision) coverage for non-owned/rented autos or all autos. Truck rental price does not include driver’s wages, fuel, oil or mileage. Customer is responsible for any tolls, permits, parking fees, and parking violations. We will be happy to assist you in crewing up your production and we reserve the right of prior approval or designation of certified drivers or operators of our equipment.

If you do not have equipment insurance, Death Grip Electric, Inc. offers an Equipment Insurance Waiver for an additional 20% of the gross rental charges. This waiver allows you to rent without insurance; it is not insurance. If you opt to rent with the waiver instead of insurance and any rented equipment is lost, stolen, or damaged, you are responsible for the replacement/repair and lost rental income for the equipment. Equipment Insurance Waiver is not available for HMIs, cameras, lenses, or rentals with a replacement value of over $5,000.

The credit card security form, the third required item, needs to be filled out regardless of how payment is to be made. This is for security purposes, in the event that your rental incurs loss or damage below your insurance deductible or not covered by insurance, and for your convenience in the event that you choose to extend your rental.

Payment in full is due at time of rental pickup/delivery, before rented equipment may leave Death Grip Electric, Inc.’s premises. We accept as payment: cash, checks, and major credit cards. Credit accounts will be granted only upon approval of a credit application prior to rental. We reserve the right to not accept any credit application until a working relationship is established. If credit application is approved, net amount is due 10 days after the last day of the rental. Additional finance charges may be charged if the account becomes past due, as stated in our rental contract. Invoices paid with a credit card may be assessed a credit card processing fee.

Please make your specific rental needs known so that we may put a hold on key items for your shoot. Once you have placed your order, we will consider all equipment on hold with the first right of refusal. After we receive your order, we will provide you with a prompt and accurate estimate for your review and approval. As your shoot approaches, please consider the time we must have to properly prepare and load your order. Early location scouts and final approval of your order will help avoid any late loading or after hours charge.

When picking up the rental equipment we will be glad to provide instructions regarding the use of our equipment upon your request. It is your responsibility to understand how to set up and operate the equipment before leaving our facility. All electrical equipment and/or generators must be grounded and operated in compliance with the current National Electrical Code and any local codes that are applicable. No warranty of performance is made for equipment beyond it being in working order when it leaves our office. We are not responsible for any loss resulting from the use or misuse of our equipment.

Upon return of equipment we will inspect all items and report any loss or damage to you as soon as possible. Any burned out bulbs need be returned for credit. All broken or unreturned bulbs will be charged for. We will then generate as quickly as possible a final invoice detailing all rentals, services and expendables and send you a copy of the invoice for your approval before proceeding with billing.

Our goal is to provide you with meticulously maintained equipment and the highest level of professionalism and service. Our years of experience have taught us to anticipate your needs and hopefully we can help you through any trying production situations.
