We estimate the late return fee based on what time the gear is received back from the client. Half day or full day charges will apply. Half day charges will apply if the client brings the gear back 5-6 hours later than expected. A full day fee will be charged if the client brings back the gear any time after 6 hours of expected return.



The client is fully liable for any damages to the equipment and for any equipment not returned or not returned in the same condition it was in at the commencement of the hire. The damage cover includes any negligence, hi-jacking, fire, flood. water damage, loss, theft, and any other damage or stolen items.

In the case of damage during a shoot day, DT Film Services will supply you with alternative equipment. The client is liable for all damages to the gear, therefore the client is liable for the repair or replacement of that equipment.

The client(s) agrees that if without lawful cause the equipment is not returned within 48 hours after the agreed hire period, without any notification, the equipment may be regarded as stolen in which event, criminal charges may be laid with the South African Police Service without further notifications to the client. The client(s) will still be liable for the full replacement / damage costs. The Client(s) confirm they accept responsibility for the full, new replacement value of items which cannot be repaired.

The latest available model will replace items which have been discontinued by the manufacturers. All directly related costs such as freight and custom levies will form part of the claim.



The insurance of all photography equipment is mandatory, and is charged at 10% (Ten Percent) of the total rate. These charges are valid within the borders of South Africa only.

In the event of the equipment being used outside the borders of South Africa, additional insurance will be required at the client’s expense on ALL EQUIPMENT TYPES. The renter will need to provide DT FILM SERVICES with proof of additional insurance before the equipment leaves DT FILM SERVICES.

The renter is also responsible for an excess payable at 15% of the new replacement cost of each item of equipment, and at a minimum rate of R8000.00 per item, in the event the equipment cannot be repaired as per above. Should the value of an item be less than R10,000.00 then insurance will not apply and the Renter shall be liable for the full replacement value of the item. Any Items booked out under loan or sponsorship will not be covered under this section and the recipient of such will be liable for the full replacement value in case of damage or loss, no matter the value.

Where certain items of equipment cannot be insured for whatsoever reason, the Renter will be liable for the cost of the repair (if possible) or the full replacement cost of the item
