Hire out your kit for cash!

Sponsored promotion: Start making money from your filmmaking kit with peer-to-peer rental firm KitMapper.

If you’re like most filmmakers you own a huge amount of pricey equipment that you’re not always using and therefore is not making you any money. And sometimes, there’s that special bit of kit you need to complete that one-off job. That’s where KitMapper comes in, as the first UK-based peer-to-peer rental platform for creatives, granting vetted users access to a community of photographic and video equipment at affordable rates.

You can list your gear on the KitMapper website, where fellow filmmakers can browse their nearby locations then rent it from you. So it can not only help fellow filmmakers create their projects but become a source of regular income.

It’s easy to do as KitMapper makes everything quick and simple for rentals, with user reviews, a chat system and rental tracking so you can keep tabs on your kit. If you want to rent, just put in details of the kit you’re after, chat to the user who has what you need and arrange a time to pick it up. KitMapper has most of the items a filmmaker needs including cameras, lenses, lighting, grip, monitors, projectors, sound equipment and even studios.

And all users have to be verified by KitMapper to keep renting as stress-free and safe as possible, with all hirers and users protected by a legal rental agreement. And the KitMapper Guarantee ensures all equipment is covered during the hire period if it gets stolen or damaged. Check out the KitMapper Guarantee for more details. 

There are no huge deposits needed, and KitMapper is reducing its fees this winter from 17.5% to 14%. If you join now you get 10% off your first rental. Just select the ‘Pro Moviemaker’ option on ‘How Did You Hear About Us’ and you’ll be sent a special code.

So don’t delay, register today so you can start making money by renting out your kit or hiring kit for your next money-making project.
