Working with Our Staff
Noted below are some recommendations that we feel will foster a good working relationship between you and our staff. Our suggestions are meant to help you avoid delays and insure your peace of mind.
1. Book equipment and supplies in advance.
2. If you are ordering both equipment and supplies, request that your supplies be placed with your rental order.
3. Remember that our service does not end when you leave our premises. If special circumstances or problems arise in the studio or on location, notify us as soon as possible so we may respond with technical help or replacement equipment.
4. Telephone changes to your order as soon as you have decided on them.
5. If changes in the agreed upon pick up or return time become necessary, please call ahead and make arrangements to avoid additional charges.
6. Call in cancellations. This is a normal courtesy. Keep in mind, we reserve the right to charge a prep fee if cancellation is received less than 24 hours prior to the agreed upon pick up time.
Accounts and Deposits
We offer two types of accounts. The first one is a standard business account, which allows you to charge rental services and supplies and is invoiced on a net 30 day basis. This account normally requires that your business has been operating for a minimum of 3-5 years and that you submit current trade references and financial statements for your principals.
The second is a “deposit wavier” account, called a DW account that allows you access to our rental equipment. With the DW account, we require payment in full for rental services and supplies upon pick up, but no deposit or cash security is required. In order to apply for an account you must submit a credit application to our accounting department at least five business days before your planned pick up time.
If you do not have an account established with our company, we welcome your rental business with the following limitations : you may use a credit card as a deposit on equipment totaling more than $3000 in value, or you may leave us a cash deposit equal to or greater than the replacement of the equipment you are renting. Equipment in value of the $5000 requires proof of insurance with a deposit for the deductible Insurance needs to be based on the value of the equipment listing Adolph Gasser Inc. as the loss payee and additional insured. While adequate for occasional small items rented, we can streamline your service and offer much more flexibility to you as an account customer.
