Requests: Production Services
All production service requests must be made a minimum of two business days prior to the date of event. Requests received with less than two business days notice cannot be guaranteed for service or specifics of equipment and will not qualify for any normally applicable discounts. Larger events (i.e. live entertainment, corporate video, large venues etc.) will necessitate booking a minimum of 6 business days in advance. Click here to request an estimate.

. There are no guarantees that any one, or multiple, piece/s of specific gear will be in stock at any given time. If specific equipment is required, early booking via email is the most effective way to reserve any of our products. Rentals for pickup always qualify for any normally applicable discounts.
Responsibility: Production Services
The client will assume full responsibility and liability for any damages to, or loss of, any and all equipment provided by AVTEK Productions, or it’s subsidiaries, contractors and suppliers, regardless of ownership, that occurs during the time period that the client has care and control of the equipment. The client will assume this responsibility from the time/date that installation is complete until the agreed-upon removal time/date. If the client is not present at completion of installation, transfer of liability is still in effect and enforceable. If the client is not present for removal, and that absence causes an inability for AVTEK staff to remove said equipment, the client will retain responsibility for the equipment until such a time that access to the equipment is made available to AVTEK staff. The client will also be responsible for any and all extra charges relating to removal of equipment. If AVTEK staff are operating the equipment for the duration of the event, AVTEK will assume responsibility only for operational damage to the equipment WHILE AVTEK STAFF ARE PRESENT. The client still maintains responsibility for loss or other forms of damage to all items provided.
The renter agrees to return all rented equipment in the condition in which it was rented. The renter will assume full responsibility and liability for any damages to, or loss of, any and all equipment provided by AVTEK Productions, or its subsidiaries, contractors and suppliers, regardless of ownership, that occurs during the time period that the client has possession of the equipment. The renter will assume this responsibility from the time/date of equipment pickup until the agreed-upon return time/date. All rental equipment must be returned by 10:00am on the designated return day. Failure to return equipment on time will be subject to further rental charges and a late penalty may be incurred. If late returns become habitual, preclusion of future rentals, at AVTEK’s discretion, may occur. Projector rentals are for a maximum of 10 (ten) lamp hours per rental day. Any additional hours will be billed as additional days at a rate of 10 (ten) hours per day. If the renter has little or no experience with the equipment they wish to rent, AVTEK will provide a working knowledge of the equipment in question. If the equipment requested is of a more comprehensive nature, AVTEK will require proof of competency from the client’s intended equipment operator before the rental can take place.
