  1. COVID-19: What’s Changing at MKE

    Contactless Equipment Rental with our lockers
    Our new lockers let you pick up and return,
    without needing to talk to a rental specialist.

    At MKE Production Rental, we’re doing everything possible to keep our customers, employees, and community safe. As part of that effort, we offer zero-contact pickup and returns for all renters.

    Please use the phone or email to place orders. All pick ups and returns will use our contactless lockers, or our outdoor loading dock. If you’re using our loading dock, please call when you arrive and someone will come out to meet you.

    We have implemented the following policies to help keep everyone safe and do our part.

    All items are wiped with sanitizing wipes at pick up and return
    Employees and indoor visitors are required to wear masks
    We use UV sterilization in our office and warehouse air filters
    Hard-to-sanitize items, like cameras and lenses, are quarantined for 96 hours between rentals
    We now carry PPE as part of our expendables offerings
    We rent clear vinyl floppies and flags

    Renters will need to complete certain requirements electronically. After you make payment, we will send you a link to digitally sign your rental contract and upload identification documents.

    We have resumed our regular business operating hours. Our most current hours are always available on Google.

    As always, we can deliver and pick up any size order. We can also ship your order via FedEx or UPS. Fees vary, please check with your rental specialist for pricing.

  2. Updated Cancellation Policies due to Coronavirus/COVID-19

    At MKE Production Rental, we take the health of our community and employees seriously. We have implemented our COVID-19 response plan, and it includes some added flexibility for you, our rental customer. These policies are changing as we learn more about the situation, your terms will be specific to when you confirmed your rental.

    On rentals of items we have in our regular stock, we will waive cancellation charges if your production or event is forced to cancel or postpone because of a state or federal government health order.

    If the above does not apply, your order will be subject to our standard cancellation policies.

    This policy is in effect for a limited time, and is likely to change as our industry continues to adapt to COVID-19. For help understanding how this temporary policy applies to your particular order, please ask your rental specialist.

    Flexible cancellations are just a small part of our COVID-19 response plan. We’re all in this together, and we’re glad to do our part. Please wash your hands, #StayHome, and stay healthy!
