  6. Booking the gear: when you have found what you were looking for, pick the dates, select your insurance option and a request to the Owner and decide a time and place for the equipment pickup. When he accepts it, the payment is processed. Delivery is also possible on request (contact us for a quote).
  7. Equipment handoff: the Renter and Owner meet and make sure everything is in order. A great opportunity to network too. After the shoot meet again and check the equipment together. You can also get the gear delivered! Please visit the Renter and Owner sections for best practices (preparing gear, QC check, …).
  8. Review: after the Owner has market the rental as complete, review each other to help future users and build your reputation. More about reviews.
