About us


I set up Hireacamera in 2003 after trying to hire a digital SLR for a holiday without much success.

Today our little company has grown to become one of the most popular suppliers of cameras and accessories for both stills and motion, hiring all over the UK.  We cater for personal, professional and corporate needs - whether you want to try one of the latest cameras, need an extra lens for a shoot or are after a full package, we can fulfil your requirements.

Our growth over the last few years has been quite phenomenal - we've come a long way since our first camera purchase.  However, our core values remain the same and are without doubt responsible for that growth - we value our customers and always work hard to provide them with everything they need - we're very proud of the job we do.

Every one of our customers is invited to fill out a feedback form and I personally read them all to ensure that we are doing things right.  We also work closely with the manufacturers to ensure we are offering the best options and that we have stock of any new equipment at launch.

2015 is an exciting year for us, starting with the launch of our new website.  It's not just the front end that has changed - to ensure it's as efficient as possible, we have had to start from scratch.  With some 10,000 stock items, it's been a long job.  But we hope that features such as live availability will make booking even easier for you and we're not stopping there - we have a 12 month development plan in place to add features as we go through the year.  We love feedback so please do let us know what you do and don't like!  We have tried to listen to our customers' needs and now we've got our new platform, we will be announcing new services this year to make life as easy as possible.

Product wise, we have invested more than ever before in ensuring we offer everything you need.  Our principles still remain the same - we will always attempt to find the best value solution for you - after all, it's your profit margin!

Thank you for taking the time to visit our site.  If you have any questions at all, please do not hesitate to contact us - we are always happy to hear from you.
