- Auto Liability $1,000K (if Renting a Vehicle from DFS)
- Rented Equipment $500K
Digital Film Studios must receive advance notice of any rentals that will be used outside of the US.
If you do not have equipment insurance, we may be able to assist you in contacting the appropriate parties to obtain such insurance.
We require you to sign a contract, which can be found here: Rental Agreement
If you are renting a stage, you will also need to sign the Stage Rental Agreement as well.
Prior to your job, please click the above links, where you will be taken to a secure web site where you can review and sign the forms.
When renting a truck, equipment or our stage, you must fill out and sign the DFS Credit Card Authorization Form to 818-351-1155. Clicking the link will take you rightsignature.com where you can securely review and sign the form.
In general, we will place an authorization on your credit card for the amount of your insurance deductible or for the value of the equipment (whichever is lower) unless prior arrangements are made. This authorization will be used to satisfy any residual charges to your account, and any remaining amounts will be released by your credit card company at their convenience.
If you are unable to provide us with a Credit Card please call to make other arrangements.
All invoices are COD, meaning we require payment prior to equipment pickup or the start of production at our facility. We will charge your credit card unless you make payment by other means.
We accept cash, company checks, Money Orders or Credit Card payments (Visa, MasterCard or American Express). An additional 3.5% charge will be added to ALL VISA/MASTERCARD payments and 4.5% to ALL AMERICAN EXPRESS payments.
