EQUIPMENT RENTALS

All rental prices listed below are for a 1-day rental.

Rentals are billed as follows:  1 day + 1/2 day + 1/2 day...and so on.  One week is billed as 3 days, one month as 3 weeks...so a month-long rental is only 9 days billable.  Weekends are billed as 1 day.  We will always try to work within your budget when necessary, so feel free to ask if you're going over and would like some consideration.  

We're very happy to be located outside Chicago and no longer required to charge the ridiculous 8% Rental Transaction Tax
