Rental periods are based on a four day week and 12 day month. Minimum rental period is one day. However rental equipment shipped out of the Boston area is subject to a two-day minimum charge. Equipment shipped back to Talamas should be insured for the full value of the equipment and sent Priority Overnight with the freight prepaid. Rental costs cannot be applied to past or future purchase. Cancellations must be made 24 hours prior to time of scheduled pick up or a cancellation fee will be charged. Lease packages are available.

We are not responsible for typographical or other errors.


Equipment should be returned in the same condition that it left Talamas. Damaged equipment is the sole responsibility of the Lessee. Our rental contract states all of our terms and conditions.


A Certificate of Insurance covering the full value of the equipment rented or leased, as well as liability coverage indemnifying Talamas is required of the Lessee. The Certificate should list Talamas Company Inc. as the Certificate Holder and state that the Certificate Holder is Loss Payee and Additional Insured with respect to rented or leased equipment. The Certificate must also list the equipment value at Full Replacement Cost.

If you do not have insurance, you may purchase it through Talamas rental insurance through The Film Emporium.
