  • Can I pickup at 9am or even before 12pm on my scheduled pickup day?
    Yes, IF you book for a pickup the day prior. While we do our best to accommodate your production schedule we ask that if you are shooting on a scheduled pickup day that you pay for that day as a shoot day. Pickup days are just that, reserved for your pickup and prep and as such the gear you are booking may not be ready by 9am as it likely could be coming back from a prior rental which could be as late as 12pm and then we need to clean, test and recheck it out to you. If you have a flexible schedule and are just looking to grab some extra shots on your pickup day, then we will do our best to get your gear to you as early as possible, but please plan around the fact that likely it wont be till after 12pm in many cases. If you absolutely need the gear early for your shoot the same day please book for a pickup the day prior, this assures you availability and then you can pickup either the day before or the day of as early as 9am..
  • Is there parking?
    Yes we have parking lot and ample street parking.
  • I see that my direct quote prices differ from prices I see on sharegrid?
    In regards to sharegrid pricing vs our pricing when working with us directly. A few things to consider. Sharegrid charges a community fee which does increase the listed price to some extent. As well when we do booking via sharegrid they handle a significant amount of the overhead such as verifying identity and insurance, processing payments, and managing the overall booking experience. This overhead is something that we have to account for on our end when booking with us directly. Please consider this as we do put in a great deal of effort working with you to craft a package that will fit your needs, this service is what sets apart the experience when booking on sharegrid directly as there is no one to one support for choosing items etc. While we do try to maintain competitive pricing to the wider industry, you may see some differences when booking with us directly. As well as are always happy to still work with you via sharegrid in cases where that workflow is more efficient for your project. Alternatively if you do have budget limits please communicate that to us when you are requesting a package so that we can best work to find tools that fit or best your budget. thanks DeHaven Staff

    24hrs. We generally will give you 24hrs to find and return missing gear unless we have an existing arrangement with our team. After 24hrs you will be charged the full replacement value of the missing items including shipping tax and service fee up to your deductible amount. If you find the gear and return it after we have charged you but before we have ordered a replacement (usually 5 to 10days) we will refund you the full amount. After we have ordered a replacement we are unable to offer any refund. Any items whos value exceeds the deductible of your insurance will need a claim filed within 48hrs or we will charge the full replacement value without the use of insurance.
