All equipment is quoted “per day”. Weekends are considered to be 1 day. Discounts apply for longer term rentals. “Half days” are considered to be 5 hours from the time the equipment leaves MIDCAN until it returns, and are billed at 2/3rds the rate of a full day. Data management & offloading, mileage, parking, consumables, couriers and shipping are extra. All prices are in Canadian dollars, and subject to applicable taxes.
Proof of production insurance and/or a $500 to $2000 damage deposit is required on all rentals. The deposit charge will be determined by MidCan staff at the time of rental based on a number of variables. Deposits are placed as a hold on a valid credit card. Once equipment is returned it will be checked for damage and the deposit, minus any damage, will be refunded within 72 hours. Cash or debit deposits will not be accepted.
Equipment rented will be available for pick-up between 1500 & 1800 the day prior to rental if possible. Rented equipment must be returned during morning drop-off hours the day following the rental otherwise you will be billed for another day. Morning drop-off hours are between 0830 & 0930 on weekdays. We are closed on weekends, so weekend rentals must be picked up between 1500 and 1800 on Friday. Weekend rentals must be returned between 0830 & 0930 Monday morning.
Batteries for wireless microphones are available at an additional cost.
When using cameras or audio recorders that record to memory cards, for an additional charge, MidCan can offload your data. Any hard drives provided to MidCan for this purpose must be blank, and the client must inform us of how the drive is to be formatted. Otherwise, the Renter is responsible for ensuring the proper off-loading, backing up and archiving of the media recorded to the cards. This process must happen within the rental period, before the camera or audio recorder are returned. Unless other arrangements are made at the time of rental, the cards will be erased and re-formatted upon the return of the device.
