FAQ – New Clients

kss_nz15_holding_zeiss

Welcome to Kingsize.

When you have successfully completed the new client process, you automatically receive $100 towards your first hire. Even if the value of the item is less than $100 ! Or you can put it towards a bigger job.

1.   How do I get started?

Please check How it works, and follow the steps. You need to fill out 2 forms, the New Client Form, and the Credit Card Authorisation form.

2.   What is a day rate, and how does it work?

Equipment is hired based on collection at the beginning of the day, and returning the next morning. If you collect at 12pm or 3pm or 6pm, the gear is still expected back the next morning by 8am, and this is still a 1 day charge.

3.   Do you do half days?

Yes for studios. No for gear.

4.   What if I break the gear, or it gets stolen?

Please see our Terms & Conditions, and Insurance Quick Guide. You are responsible for the return of the equipment in the same condition it left Kingsize. Any loss or damage will incur charges that you must pay.

5.   I’ve never hired a studio or equipment before. What do I do?

First of all, we welcome everyone: and we love helping people get started. Where ever we can we will talk you through the process, or equipment usage, and assist you in having a successful shoot.

We recommend you come visit us well before your shoot, and familiarise yourself with the facilities, or equipment, and general procedures.
