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.
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.
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!
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
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.
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.
