Hello,

 

I am investing in some camera equipment that I will be trying to rent out in addition to using myself. I was planning on doing all the advertising myself, but has anyone ever heard of having a rental house rent out your equipment for you and let them take a percentage? I'm talking about guys that I trust and that I've worked with before. They don't have what I'm offering, but I don't have the contacts or the publicity that they have.

Sharegrid.com  Kitsplit.com, cameralends.com and many others have changed the game entirely.  You can rent out using any of them.  But just be aware that the market is totally flooded with people renting their wares at bargain basement prices and you won't get much action out of any of them.   

 

Unless you're buying at the very high end of the market and even then your pool of clients is harder to access.

Sure you can cosign your  kit over to rental houses. Generally  too, you can use it whenever you like as well so long as it's  not booked on a job and your give them enough notice. It can be very very nice if you can get it in there.
