D. Camera Loan

Hire A Camera loan Terms and Conditions

How it works

Any length of loan period is available up to a maximum of 14 days.

We always aim to deliver by 12pm on the working day before you want to use your equipment. That way, we have plenty of time to resolve any problems such as a mis-sort or failed delivery. On the rare occurrences of this happening, we will arrange for the equipment to be with you by 10am on the morning of the hire (subject to availability). Please note that if you are using the equipment before 10am on the morning of the loan, it is advisable to book a day earlier to prevent any issues.  Please do feel free to discuss this with us if you have any queries.

Collection takes place the working day after your loan period has ended..

Early return of equipment
You are more than welcome to return the equipment early. Just contact us and we can arrange collection. 

Cancellation of orders
As long as the loan is cancelled before dispatch you will incur no charges.  If the equipment has already been dispatched, handling and courier charges may apply. 

How we deliver
The equipment will be dispatched from us at around 5pm the day before delivery so to ensure that this deadline is made, all orders must be packed by this time. A dispatch email will be sent to you once the equipment has left us.

All deliveries will be attempted before midday on the day of delivery.  As we use a national courier, there is always the very slight chance of a mis-sort where part or all of the consignment is sent to the incorrect depot. In these instances, we will organise either for that equipment to be re-delivered or we will send out additional equipment – in both cases, this will arrive either later that afternoon or before 10am on the morning of the hire.

Please do contact us if your equipment has not arrived on time – the longer we have to resolve the situation, the better we can serve you! 

How we collect
Details of your collection will be included in your dispatch documents. Please do note that this is an all day collection so we cannot specify pickup times. 

If you are not able to stay in, you have two options – let us know an alternative address to have it picked up from or you are also more than welcome to take it to your nearest APC depot. Please note, if you do decide to do this, please can you let us know as we will need to provide you with a consignment number to present to APC upon arrival and book it with the depot before hand.


How everything is packed
Usually, all of our equipment will be delivered in a flight case (Pelicase or Storm Case). . We are realistic in understanding that things can get bashed around by the couriers, so we try to make sure that everything arrives with you in the best order possible. We are also aware that sometimes equipment can get damaged, despite our best efforts, so please do check everything as soon as it arrives.  You must let us know by 4pm at the very latest on the day of delivery if there is a problem.  If you do not inform us before 4pm, we cannot be held responsible and assume that any defects have happened under your care.

Delivery outside the UK
Sadly we can only deliver to the UK.

Checking equipment upon arrival
We will check everything thoroughly upon dispatch. However, should the worst happen and something gets broken in transit, we do need to know about it as soon as possible to ensure we get the problem sorted for you. So please do check everything is not only present and correct but also working once the equipment arrives with you and notify us before 4pm on the day of delivery should you have any concerns.

What to do in the event of damage
Please phone us IMMEDIATELY!

If the equipment arrives in a damaged state from the courier and we have established that nothing can be done to rectify the situation with that existing equipment, we will normally arrange for collection of the goods (please note, if we are not informed by 4pm on the day of delivery, we will have to assume that the goods arrived in perfect working order). Dependant on stock, we will always attempt to redeliver replacement equipment of the same or similar specification.

If the equipment gets damaged during the course of your loan, dependant on the extent of the damage, we will either arrange for the immediate return of the equipment or mutually agree that you use it until the end of the loan period as arranged.

On return of the equipment, our dispatch department will inspect it and a preliminary quotation for repair will be found out. If a deposit was taken and authorised on a debit/credit card, this amount will be held.  If the repair amount exceeds that of the deposit, the outstanding balance will be charged to your debit/credit card.  Dependent on the severity of the damage or supply of replacement parts and thus the length of repair, a penalty charge may well be incurred due to a loss of hire of the equipment to other customers.    

Wear and Tear
We understand that the equipment may overtime pick up the odd minor scratch or mark, however, any marks to lens glass and obvious neglect of use will be treated as damage and charged.

Good luck!
