PRICES and PAYMENTS
Prices, deposits and specifications in our catalogue are subject to change without notice. Biggs Camera rental prices are based on the premise that the renters are experienced and well trained. Our gear is professional equipment and is not recommended to the inexperienced. Failure to understand the equipment operation is not an excuse for non-payment!! Payment in full is due at the time of rental. Rental payments may be made ONLY with Visa, MasterCard, Discover or American Express credit cards.
A deposit for the full amount of the equipment value, or up to $1,000.00, may be required for every rental at our discretion. If you do not have an established account with Biggs Camera, the deposit must be made with a Visa, MasterCard, Discover or American Express credit card with a sufficient limit to accept the full amount of the deposit. The deposit is made in the form of an Authorization Hold, which holds funds in the amount of the deposit for 7-10 days.
It is highly recommended that you inspect all equipment before accepting the rental. Although Biggs Camera inspections and maintenance prevent most problems, it is not possible to predict all potential problems. Notify Biggs Camera immediately of any problem with any rental equipment. Failure to do so may result in a full rental fee.
Insurance coverage is the responsibility of the renter and is strongly recommended due to the high replacement value of most of the equipment. As the renter, you assume full responsibility and are completely liable, for the condition of the rental equipment while it is in your possession. Insurance coverage is suggested for high value or high risk equipment. Proof of insurance may be requested prior to the rental, and must include the following:
Be “all risk” and equal the total replacement value of all rented equipment.
Name Biggs Camera as the sole “loss payee”.
Be the primary source of insurance coverage.
Be on file with Biggs Camera before the rental begins.
LOSS OR DAMAGE
The renter agrees to assume full responsibility for all rental equipment and also agrees to compensate Biggs Camera for any and all equipment that is lost, stolen or damaged. This includes paying for all repairs up to the full replacement value of the equipment if it is damaged beyond repair, and paying full replacement value for stolen or lost equipment. The renter will also be charged a rental fee for the time period in which damaged equipment is out for repair or until payment is received for replacement of equipment.
Spare bulbs are provided upon request. There is no charge for the use of spare bulbs as long as the “burnt out” bulb is returned. However, any missing bulbs, shock failures, over-volting or bulbs which show signs of overheating will be charged to the renter.
“TRY BEFORE YOU BUY” POLICY
If you rent equipment for the purpose of trying it out before purchasing that item, the following applies to the purchase of the same equipment: Up to 2 days of rental charges can be applied to the purchase of the same equipment that is new. The new item must be purchased within ten days of the return of the rental item.
Because all equipment is rented on a first come first served basis, a reservation is recommended and may be scheduled up to one month in advance.
All reservations must be cancelled with a minimum of 24 hours advance notice. Cancellations with less than 24 hour notice are subject to a cancellation fee equal to the full amount of the rental rate.
SPARE BATTERY POLICY
Alkaline, Lithium and Silver Oxide batteries are considered expendable items. Biggs Camera provides rested batteries for each rental item, but cannot guarantee the viability of the batteries. It is highly recommended that you carry spare batteries.Please allow ample time for charging of batteries, as we make every effort, but make no guarantees that batteries will be fully charged.
