We offer "industry" rates for everyone! Every extra day is ½ price or less and even lower prices once you hit a week or longer rentals.
No insurance or holds required!
We don't take credit card holds or full value deposits on gear and we don't require insurance unless you're renting cinema cameras like Reds. There you go.
We're friendly and easy to rent from!
Life is too short to not enjoy your job - we have fun at work! Expect music, jokes, and probably Timbits while we prep your gear. Being professional doesn't mean looking down on clients, at least that's our philosophy.
Don't know what you're doing??
Don't worry... we do! Everyone here has a background in corporate or commercial video production or filmmaking. If you need help picking gear, just ask, we do this all day, every day!
"I'm Dylan Couper and I own Gearbase Camera Rentals. You might think it's strange to see a testimonial from the owner, but I want you to know that before starting this company I worked as an indie video shooter and producer for about 16 years and rented gear from most of the other shops in town. I had some good experiences... and some bad experiences. Our shop is an ongoing experiment in how to create the opposite of the bad experiences and expand on the good experiences. Are we perfect? No... But every day behind the desk we do at least one thing that improves our services for our clients.
We have no intention of being the biggest rental house in town... But damn we are going to fight to be the best...
Owner of GearBase Camera Rentals
The folks over at Gear house have been around for a number of years. They've served Digital Cyclops Video Productions very well as we continue to grow to service our clients. Whether you're producing corporate videography, or filming that hot new indie feature, look up these guys.
Their new offices are swankier, and they now have parking! BONUS! They're always very helpful
I hired a lens from Gearhouse in December when i was i Vancouver for the Commonwealth Powerlifting Championships. I found them via a google search and after deciding I should at least price up hiring lens I contacted them via email for a quote.
The price was fantastic, (5 days for slightly more than the cost of a day in the UK)
Responses to emails were usually within a few minutes during their office hours and they even gave me directions from my hotel via public transport
If I ever need to hire gear in the Vancouver area again this will definitely be my 1st call
