Hireacamera is part of the Simplysnap Group and is one of the leading Photo & Video equipment hire companies in Europe. We offer an extensive range of digital cameras, lenses, video, lighting and studio products for hire and, we are a rarity in that we specialise in both Photo and Video equipment in equal measure.
We are passionate about what we do and work hard to make sure hiring equipment for your shoot is quick, easy and reliable. Our experienced team offers friendly and expert advice on all your hire needs.
We’re the only hire company to offer 24/7 live availability and booking via our website which is fully optimised for both mobile and desktop. You can place an order at any time, from anywhere with complete confidence - no need to request a quote or wait for us to confirm price and availability.
Simply select the dates, choose your equipment and add it to the basket, checkout and you can relax knowing the kit is booked. If you have multiple shoots across multiple dates you can even book those too!
We offer nationwide next day delivery as standard and can offer a dedicated courier service for those last-minute requests.
Our products are delivered and collected right from your door by courier. In normal circumstances we also offer a click, collect, or drop of service via 38 retail locations UK wide, so if you can’t wait in, or just need more flexibility this is a perfect alternative.
We can facilitate bookings from 1 day to 28 days and beyond if you're planning a trip or a series of events where you need equipment for an extended time period. We can even help you with a Carnet if you’re shooting overseas.
Corporate accounts are available for any individuals or limited companies, once you’ve hired from us 5 times or more.
We continually invest in the latest equipment and technology to ensure we can offer you the industry standards you would expect, together with the most innovative equipment for photography, film, television and media content production available.
Nobody gives you more choice of lenses to support your shoot, as we offer an extensive range across 12 different lens mounts, from 14 different manufacturers.
We don’t stop here. We also carry a wide range of binoculars, scopes, audio, lighting, grips, streaming and accessories as well as the hard to source and more niche products too.
Our equipment is maintained to the highest level with regular servicing and is meticulously checked and cleaned before each hire and, is ready to shoot on arrival to give you complete peace of mind.
We know most rental facilities don’t like to show prices up front, preferring instead a more involved quote system. This often requires you to go back and forth over a kit list countless times, haggling each and every hire, and paying different amounts for the same kit across different hires.
We believe you should be able to see what you’re going to pay from the start and be able to make decisions based on your budget. Our prices are set to be competitive against the market. In the unlikely event you find a like for like item available for hire cheaper, please let us know, and we will do our best to help.
We believe in working hard and playing hard, which is why Sundays and Bank Holidays are always free when you hire from us.
It’s all very well having the biggest ranges and the latest kit but, it means nothing without award-winning customer service, which is why we're so proud of ours, together with the fantastic Trustpilot reviews we receive from our customers.
From your initial contact our experienced team is on hand to guide you through the process and give you advice, should you need it. We’ll even check your order at every stage for compatibility and to make sure nothing gets overlooked.
At Hireacamera we understand preparation is the key to a successful shoot. It’s why we follow rigorous processes to ensure everything is checked and accounted for before it leaves the premises, and again on its return.
It’s this obsessive attention to detail that means you can rely on us to provide the very highest level of service, and to deliver equipment, checked, cleaned, calibrated and ready to shoot with, straight away.
At Hireacamera we understand how difficult it is to keep up with the latest equipment and how, if you’re anything like us, you’re always looking at the next piece of kit you want to add to your bag.
We also know the great expense involved in purchasing these items and appreciate it’s hard to justify purchases for occasional use. This is why we stock the widest range of equipment, including all the accessories to completely kit out your shoot, so you don’t have too!
It’s also the reason we created our waiting lists. If you’re interested in a product that’s just been announced and want to be among the first to try it, join the product waiting list and we will email you as soon as it arrives in stock.
We can also look at a variety of ways to structure your hire. Perhaps you’re interested in a fixed term or contract hire, whatever it is, get in touch and together we can look at the options that will provide a flexible way for you to get the kit you need.
If you’re an experienced photographer or cameraman who knows exactly what you’re looking for, or a passionate individual looking for some guidance on your first hire, then we’re ready to help you.
Whether you are looking for just a few items for a trip of a lifetime, a long lens to add to your kit bag for a wildlife shoot, multiple action cameras to film from every angle, or have a complicated high value production across multiple locations, we can guide you through the equipment, processes, logistics and provide a solution tailored to your specific needs.
