All new customers need to set up an account requiring they provide identification, valid credit card, trade references, and proof of insurance naming: “AFFILIATED EQUIPMENT INCORPORATED” as additionally insured and loss payee. The process of collecting and verify information can take a day or more.
Should last minute equipment be required because another rental company is unable supply what you require, chances are they already have an account with us. In such cases have their CSR contact us and we should be able to immediately fulfill your order.

THE BEST WAY TO SAVE MONEY ON YOUR PRODUCTION
For new customers who have not yet figured us out, although we will rent equipment a la carte, as a rule, that is not our thing. If you are just after odds and sods our prices and gear are pretty well comparable to the competition, but our main thrust is toward Equipment Package Trucks, with generator, in combination with complete Camera Packages where:
If you rent an AE Equipment Package Truck with an AE Camera Package (Camera Body, set of Prime Lenses, Support, and Accessories) the AE Camera Body rate (one body/job) will be reduced by $333/day.
Sometimes it just doesn’t work to get both an Equipment Package Truck and a full Camera package from AE, so on any day that all your AE equipment rentals (all sub-rentals excluded) add up to $6000 or more we will reduce the cost of any AE Camera Gear you have rented by a maximum of $333/day.
