Consignment Rental


consignment-camera-rentalHow many hours a week do you use your camera?  Wouldn’t it be great if you could make extra cash when you’re not using it?   MKE Production Rental is always looking to add cameras and a few other pieces of equipment to our rental inventory.

What is consignment rental?
Consignment rental is a simple agreement between you and us that lets us rent your equipment to other people.

How much money will I make?
For most equipment, we’ll give you a 50/50 split of the rental revenue.  For equipment on our Most Wanted list, we’ll give you even more (60/40 split).

Is my equipment safe?

We use the same procedures with your equipment as we do with ours. When your equipment is in our care, it’s covered by our insurance. When it’s with a customer, we require proof of their insurance, and we complete a background check. In the unlikely event something permanent happens to your equipment while part of our consignment rental program, you’ll be paid the replacement cost. If your equipment needs repair due to misuse, we will pay for it. Maintanance costs, like re-lubricating gears, replacing lamps, etc., are split at the same ratio as rental revenue.

Can I use my equipment for my own projects?
Of course! If the equipment is not already committed to a rental, you can pick it up and return it during normal business hours.

What kind of equipment is acceptable for consignment rental?
Most 4K and cinema cameras, as well as professional photo and cine lenses are the most popular items.  We are also a big renter of stills cameras, so high end DSLR and mirrorless cameras less than three years old are in demand.
