Guidelines For Overhead Projector Rental

10th December 2009

When you need an overhead projector rental, there is more to

consider than just the equipment itself. You must also consider what is

required by the rental company, how the equipment will be paid for – and when –

and so much more. Make sure that you get all of the pertinent details by using

the information found below when before you rent the projector.

  • Is

    the equipment in good shape? Obviously, if the equipment is not in good

    shape, it won’t do you much good, and it may completely ruin your

    presentation. Make sure that the equipment that you are inquiring about is

    in excellent condition and working properly before agreeing to anything.

    Find out all of the details of the rental agreement as well, such as delivery

    and setup, and technical support, if it is needed.

  • What

    do you need to supply for the overhead projector rental? Will references

    be required? Is there an application form to fill out? Does the rental

    company only accept certain credit cards? Will you need to pay a deposit?

    Find out exactly what the rental company needs from you for the rental.

    Often, in the cases of large corporations or businesses, a purchase order

    may be required if the cost of the rental is to be billed to the company,

    and not all rental companies are open to this. Find out early!

  • Will

    there be a credit check? Usually, you only need references for a rental;

    however in some cases a credit check may be required. Usually a credit

    check will be required in the event that the rental company will bill your

    company for the expense, instead of being paid upfront. Make sure that you

    have a clear understanding of how the transaction will work, and whether

    or not you will need to supply information about your company for a credit


  • When

    exactly should you pay for the overhead projector rental? Again, in the

    case of large corporations and businesses, you may not be required to pay

    for the rental upfront. Instead, you may be able to have the rental

    company send you a bill for the expense. However, not all rental companies

    are open to this, and payment may be needed at the time of the rental, in

    which case you need to be prepared for this.

  • What

    is the return policy? Will you be required to return the equipment

    yourself, or will it be picked up? You also need to know about refund

    policies in the event that the equipment doesn’t work, or isn’t delivered

    on time. If you are reserving the equipment in advance, you also need to

    know about the cancellation policy – especially if you have already given

    the company some form of payment.

If you follow these guidelines for your overhead projector

rental, there shouldn’t be any issues, and everything should go smoothly. Of

course, no matter how professional you are, you must also make sure that you are

dealing with a professional audio visual hire company as well in order for things to go

the way that you desire.
