Rental Terms & Conditions
Nobody enjoys fine print, so we provide all the details up front
Calagaz Photo & Digital Imaging is open M-F 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m., Saturday 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. and closed Sunday and Select Holidays.
Any individual or company wishing to rent equipment from Calagaz Photo must have a valid drivers license and a major credit card. Cash deposit customers must pay in advance for the rental equipment. Deposits for the full replacement value of equipment will be required for all rental customers. Only Mastercard, VISA, American Express and Discover are accepted. Deposit will be made at the time of pickup for each rental item. Authorization holds on credit cards will appear as a "pending charge" and will fall off after 5 to 7 business days.
We strongly recommend against the use of debit cards for the deposit authorization. Each individual bank holds debit card authorizations for varying amounts of time (up to 30 days) and the funds placed on hold during that time are inaccessible. If you do not have a major credit card, a cash deposit is the best option. This will be secured in our safe during the duration of your rental and returned at the time of pickup.
NO CHECKS ARE ACCEPTED FOR DEPOSIT. NO EXCEPTIONS!

Rental fees are computed on a 24-hour/daily basis only. There are no half-day or hourly rates. The rental period begins at the pick-up time and all rentals are due no later than 4:00 pm on the return day. Rentals returned after 4:00 pm on the return day will be assessed as another day’s rental. Rentals returned after the return day will be subject to rental fees for each day late.
