Rented the Nikkor 70-200 F2.8 to shoot my first Motorsport event.
highly recommend to anyone, lens was in brilliant condition and performed extremely well.
One thing to point out. don't try save money on the return fees. I was quoted £19 for the lens to be picked up via lenses for hire courier, I thought I would save money using royal mail but ended up costing me £29 to return, don't make that mistake :)
The whole experience of hiring the lens went without a hitch. The web site was clear and easy to negotiate and the company kept their promises as regards delivery, The parcel was packaged extremely well. I would use the Company again.
I've seen their ads, I've heard from my hairdresser and now, first hand I can say I've used Lenses for Hire with 100% satisfaction. All members of staff I dealt with were friendly, polite and knowledgeable. The service from start to finish was first class, competitive prices and faultless equipment and instructions. Would highly recommend.
I found the whole process very easy, from searching & booking, to delivery, use and return. L4H included detailed instructions both on how to use the lens and how to return the equipment. I found the rates very good, and getting the lens 2 days early (over a weekend) for no increase in cost was a huge bonus. Overall, one very happy and satisfied customer. Will be using again, and would happily recommend them to family and friends. Thanks for the great service and excellent product!
Great choice of lenses including third party options. All charges clearly explained, nothing hidden that pops up at check out! Had a small hiccup with the courier, but LFH staff helped mitigate the inconvenience, which was much appreciated. Full instructions (if you require them) included with lens, along with returns label and packaging. Received an email from them confirming that they had received the returned lens and a further one confirming everything okay once it had been checked. Will definitely use their services again.
My general experience was fine. I placed the order, I received the lenses on the arranged delivery day and I arranged collection on the agreed day.
My collection had to be arranged via JCA couriers, who then subcontracted to Citi Link. I had no issue with this, until the collecting driver was rude, agressive and abrasive with a member of security staff (the collection was from my workplace). This subsequently got myself into trouble.
I have emailled LFH regarding the issue and 4 days later, I finally received a response apologising for not seeing my previous email.
Due to the issue with collection, the cost was refunded. I'll possibly avoid using the collection agents in future, but hopefully this was a one off!
There are quite a few lens rental companies to choose from these days, and I really wanted to trial a lens prior to possible purchase. LFH's website is easy to navigate and very user friendly. My lens arrived by 9.30 (extra courier cost but time limitation due to shoot), well packaged, in good condition. Easy to arrange return with their courier. Smooth, effective service. Will use again as required.
i found the website incredibly easy to use, the range and availability of equipment was great. i had one small problem with the delivery address which was resolved with a very quick phone call. the staff were very helpful, and the prices reasonable, i would definitely use lenses for hire again.
Utterly professional and efficient. Competitive prices for hire, adult attitude to deposits and insurance, Messages confirming order, despatch and approximate time slot for delilvery. Well packaged in reusable boxes with return outer packaging provided. The right lens delivered when promised and all as promised. 1st class service - exactly how it should be.
I hired the quality Nikon 200-400 F4 lens along with the Manfrotto gimbal head and Gitzo mono pod, I will definitely use Lenses for hire again.
The whole experience, from the user friendly website, to the helpful and friendly customer service staff was trouble free, the equipment was a joy to work with and definitely helped to provide me with the means to take some very memorable action sport images.
Rent with confidence, the team at lenses for hire are keen and eager to help.
