My flash has never really been all that wonderful, so I hardly ever use it. Well, I volunteered to take some pictures of Florida Governor Charlie Crist for the Orlando Job Fair and decided to try out my flash before the big day. Good thing I did, because the battery cover wasn’t fully closing, which meant the flash wasn’t charging.
Uh oh! 4 days before and now I’m all in a rush to rent a flash. My “go to” rental place here in town didn’t have a flash available at the time, so I decided to go through the links in a previous blog post about lens rental sites. Surprisingly a few of the rental places don’t rent flashes.
I ordered it on 4/13, before noon, and it shipped the same day. So it arrived, on time, on 4/15. The box arrived via FedEx very well packaged.
Included in the box with the flash was: the instruction manual for the flash, table stand, case, a copy of my order, rental guidelines/return date, checklist of what came with my order, the 3 closest FedEx locations around my area, return shipping label and a feeback form.
For an eight date rental on this flash, the amount was $21.00.
Two day shipping (including return) was $14.49.
So, my total bill for 8 days and shipping was $35.49.
Not bad when some places charge for shipping AND return shipping separate, plus some rates are more expensive.
I would highly recommend LensGiant.com. And I made sure to send my feedback form in with high ratings!
