Fat Llama is a new, fully-insured peer to peer rental marketplace for stuff. Whether you’ve got camera equipment, audio equipment, drones, lights (or pretty much anything else) you’re not using the whole time, then Fat Lama is the place for you. There are tonnes of like-minded people looking to hire Film & TV equipment. The best part? Whilst you’re lending out your equipment, it’s fully insured with Fat Llama. So if anything were to happen, they’ve got you covered.
There’s no way of getting away from it. Film & TV is an expensive business to be in. From lenses to lighting, gimbals and camera bodies themselves, it’s a passion which doesn’t come cheap. For many, the post-production process means that sadly, much of the time that expensive kit sits there unused. An increasing number of filmmakers (and photographers) are addressing this problem by renting out their equipment to fellow enthusiasts and professionals whilst it’s not in use.
Borrow Stuff You Need. Lend Stuff You Don’t.
Fat Llama isn’t just a great way to make money from your kit whilst you’re not using it, it’s also a great way to find the Film & TV equipment you need for your shoot. While traditional hire shops used to be a great option, they regularly require significant deposits and are often too expensive for most filmmakers. Many aren’t flexible enough to meet the modern demands of today’s freelancers. Fat Llama is often at least 30% cheaper than hire shops and since you’re hiring directly from other professionals, they don’t shut doors at 5pm. In fact, around a third of the rentals are booked and collected on the same day.
Is it safe to use?
Well, this is the first question you’re probably going to ask. What is to stop someone stealing, or damaging, your kit and making the whole process incredibly expensive? Fat Llama take 15% commission from your rental fees (which you can set yourself), and that covers insurance on your equipment. When you send out your kit, it’s important to take clear photos of the serial numbers and all faces of the equipment. You should also video the equipment to show it is fully operational. Don’t worry! They verify every user, through 2 or 3 forms of identification, to make it pretty difficult for someone to run away with your kit.
What sort of equipment can I hire out at Fat Llama?
Cameras, lenses, gimbals, drones, music equipment, bikes, clothes, furniture- almost anything! They can’t insure overly dangerous items (guns, chainsaws, chemicals etc), vehicles, properties, pets, or your grandma. But if your item isn’t one of those things, then you can list it!
A peer-to-peer rental site might be the perfect way for you to make a return on your investment. Not only will you make money from renting out your kit, you will also be helping other filmmakers continue to create!
