Hi everyone :)

What do you generally charge for a kit rental if you are keying? Are you negotiable at all, depending on the project? Does this vary from area to area? (I am in NYC). Is there anything special in your kit that warrants the price?

Thank you for any responses.

The area, the size of your kit, the size of the budget make the kit rental vary.

I have a full speed rail kit and car mounts and a 4ft slider. I try to charge the slider on a 10% discount compared to a rental company. the speed rail and car mounts all are determined by haw much usage and budget size. It is something you have to really work out with the producer. Try to be reasonable but also do let the producer push you around. Remember these are things that they may be able to do without that make your life easier, not their's.
