If I need to pick up rental gear when Barn Door Lighting is closed, can special arrangements be made?

Equipment return is between 9:00 a.m. and 11:00 am. If equipment is returned later than 11:00 a.m., an additional day will be charged. However, we are reasonable, so don’t rush to get here. If you are running a few minutes late, that’s ok.
If I am on set, and I need additional gear that I didn’t anticipate, can I add additional gear onto an existing rental order?
Yes, give Barn Door Lighting a call. If the equipment is available, it will be set aside for pick up, and the additional rental cost will be added to your order. If you cannot pick up the gear, you can arrange for Barn Door Lighting to deliver the gear to your location, if in CT, for an additional charge.
If I rent a van or truck from Barn Door Lighting Outfitters, can I drive it?

Our approved drivers are experienced electricians and grips and typically are booked as a crew member on the job. When you call, we will discuss what drivers are available, who would be best for your project and quote you the daily rate for their services. The driver will bill you directly for their services.
