I have never rented from you before – how does it work?

We require the following for new rental applications:

  • Proof of residence (utility bill/bank statement in the name of the hirer)
  • South African ID/valid passport

*If you don’t have a proof of residence in your name and are residing with a parent, friend or partner, we need the following: 

  • Proof of residence in the name of the owner (utility bill/bank statement).
  • A letter confirming that you are residing at the address as stated; signed by the homeowner (must correlate with the name that appears on the proof of residence).
  • South African ID/valid passport of the person whose name appears on the proof of residence.
  • South African ID/valid passport of the hirer.

*If you are travelling to South Africa and do not have a South African proof of residence, we need the following:

  • Proof of accommodation whilst in South Africa
  • Valid passport
  • Proof of airline/transport tickets

Who do I send my new rental application documents to?

  • For applications, please email our Rentals Department at [email protected]. In the email, include the above-mentioned documentation, a list of the equipment you need and the dates you require it.
  • NOTE: Camera bodies, lenses, flashes and memory cards are all booked separately, so make sure you request every piece of equipment you need as there is no “combo deal”.

How long does the new rental application take?

  • Send your new rental application documents 2 working days prior to your desired booking collection date as new rental applications can take up to 2 working days to complete before a booking is made/confirmed.
  • Once the rental booking is confirmed, we will email you a completed client information form.
