Heavy Construction Equipment Rentals for the Film Industry
Everything you need to know about renting construction equipment for the film industry from Rent1
When you’re in the pre-production phase of filming a movie and putting together a budget, you want transparency of costs and firm bookings for your production days. If you’re in the middle of film production, the last thing you want to worry about is delays due to equipment arriving late or not having a certified operator onsite to use the construction equipment you’ve rented. We help you avoid all of these problems with simple online ordering, fast delivery on your schedule, and certified operators for hire that can use any equipment rental you get — and we have the guaranteed lowest rates in British Columbia.
Rent1 is your production partner, making sure that we stick within your schedule and that equipment costs stay within the budget you set. We also have the largest fleet of like-new equipment and experienced operators who can complete excavations and landscaping tasks required to set up a scene, or act as extras and use equipment in a safe and professional way. Contact us with your film’s details and what you need the construction equipment for, and we’ll be able to provide you with a complete estimate of the costs and timeline.
What kind of equipment do you have available for rent?
We have the largest fleet of excavators, skid steers, compact track loaders, front end wheel loaders, dump trucks, crawler dumpers (crawler loaders), mini excavators, utility vehicles, backhoes, and telehandlers. If you need anything else, we can generally source it at a fair price.
How long can I rent equipment for?
Equipment rental duration can be for as long or as short as you need it. During our busy summer season, equipment goes quickly, so be sure to book in advance.
How much notice do you need before starting a rental?
We can generally deliver equipment within a day or two, and sometimes same-day — it all depends on the season and how busy we are. Give us a call or send an email with what you need and where it’s going and we’ll let you know how fast we can have it delivered.
Can you transport equipment to remote locations?
Absolutely. We can deliver equipment on ferries, up steep hills, and in remote locations along the B.C. coast. Let us know where it’s going and we’ll take care of the drayage and logistics.
What areas do you service?
We service the lower mainland of British Columbia, including Vancouver, Burnaby, Delta, Langley, Richmond, North Vancouver, Squamish, Whistler, Pemberton, Surrey, Langley, and Chilliwack. If you live in the interior of BC or beyond, we can typically work something out, so don’t hesitate to give us a call or send in your email.
What kind of operating certificates are needed to run construction equipment?
Safety and operational certificates are machine-dependant in many cases, and our operators are experienced professionals in using every piece of machinery safely and productively.
How many hours per day can your operators work?
Our operators can work on a rotating shift, so if you need an operator onsite for 24-hours a day, we’ll send out 2 or 3 different operators on a schedule that makes sense to get the job done.
How do I refuel the equipment that I rent?
We can take care of all equipment refuelling for a fee — if you prefer to do it yourself, we can let you know what type of fuel the equipment takes (usually diesel fuel) and show you how it’s done.
Who will clean up the equipment once I am finished renting it?
Once you’re finished renting the equipment, you can either clean it yourself, or pay us to do it for you. Ask about our cleaning fees when you provide your job details and inquire about renting construction equipment.
What kind of landscaping can you do to help my production set up a scene?
Our professionally trained, certified operators are experts with construction equipment and can complete a wide variety of landscaping, excavation, grading, and even demolition jobs. Let us know the scale and scope of your project, and we can recommend the heavy duty equipment required to get it done.
