Guide to Becoming an Authorized Person on ShareGrid:

Hello and welcome to ShareGrid! If you've landed here, you're likely on a mission to assist someone in their film or photography equipment rental journey. We appreciate your involvement, and here’s a streamlined guide to ensure you smoothly navigate through the process.

Understanding Your Role:

ShareGrid is a platform facilitating the rental of film and photography equipment between peers. As an Authorized Person, someone has nominated you to either pick up or return equipment on their behalf.

Let's dive into the steps you need to follow.

ID Verification Process:

  • Step 1: Click the verification link from the message you received.

  • Step 2: You'll be prompted to submit a picture of both sides of a state-issued ID, like a driver’s license or passport.

  • Step 3: Capture and submit a selfie to confirm your identity.

Tips for a Smooth ID Verification:

  • Ensure ample lighting to capture clear images.

  • Hold the camera steady to avoid blurriness.

  • Remember, all data submitted is treated with utmost confidentiality and security.

Should there be any hitches or additional requirements, the primary renter, who designated you, will be contacted.

Coordinating the Equipment Handover:

  • Step 1: Connect with the primary renter (the person who nominated you). They will share the equipment holder's contact details, pick-up/drop-off location, and the timing.

  • Step 2: Always carry your ID during the meeting. The equipment holder will match the ID with the one you provided during verification.

Completing the Digital Check Sheet:

You might get a text containing a link to the Digital Checksheet after being designated as an Authorized Person. This tool is vital when:

  • Picking up Equipment: You're required to fill out the Digital Check Sheet, marking the equipment's condition and confirming the items received.

  • Returning Equipment: The equipment owner takes charge here. They will complete the Digital Check Sheet. So, relax; your job is to ensure safe delivery!

Thank you for playing a pivotal role in the ShareGrid community! Should you have questions, our support team is always here to assist. Safe handling and happy filming!
