We want to offer renters great value and ensure owners get as many rentals as possible. So we've adopted some industry-standard discounts for multi-day rentals.
Here's how pricing works.
No charge for pick-up and drop-off days
Pick-up and drop-off days are free because they're intended for checking, prepping, and packing up your gear.
When you rent on ShareGrid, you'll pick up your gear after 2 pm on the rental date and return it before 12 noon on the return day.
Unless you're booking a one-day rental, you should not plan to shoot on these days.
The cost of your rental is based on the number of shoot days. These are the days you'll actually be using the equipment.
1 to 3 Shoot Days
If you rent for 1, 2 or 3 shoot days, you pay for the shoot days only.
Example: your shoot days are Tuesday and Wednesday. Pick-up is Monday, drop-off is Thursday. You will be charged for 2 shoot days.
Example: your shoot days are Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday. Pick-up is Monday, drop-off is Friday. You will be charged for 3 shoot days.
The full-week rule (5 to 7 days)
Just like rental houses, we’ve adopted a weekly discount.
If you rent gear for 5 to 7 days, you only pay for 3 shoot days.
The week rule is up to 7 days of the gear being in your possession. i.e. Picking up Monday and returning Monday (at the standard pick-up/drop-off times) falls within the full-week rule.
The full-month rule (23 to 31 days)
Just like rental houses, we’ve adopted a monthly discount.
If you rent gear for 23 to 31 days, you only pay for 10 shoot days.
Weekends count as one day
We've adopted another industry standard discount: weekends count as 1 day (Saturday + Sunday).
Example: your shoot days are Saturday and Sunday. Pick-up is Friday, drop-off is Monday. You will be charged for 1 shoot day.
