The simple answer, unless you consider yourself to be a very lucky person, is that everyone needs some type of protection whether that is your own insurance or our protection plan. If your home owner’s or business policy cover rental equipment, fantastic! If not, please consider adding in the optional protection plan we offer. Though having insurance or our protection plan is NOT manditory to rent gear, believe us, you’ll sleep easier knowing that our gear in your hands is covered just in case something happens!
The protection plan will cover repair or replacement of a lens if it is damaged. You will then be responsible for paying the deductible which is 10% of the replacement value. If you do not purchase the optional rental insurance, you will be responsible for the cost of repairing or replacing the damaged gear.
You rent a lens that has a value of $1,000 and you then damage the lens while you are renting it and the lens requires repairs totaling $300.
You are responsible for the entire $300.

Loss due to negligence on the part of the renter will not be covered. Theft will not be covered. Water damage will not be covered.
