All you wanted to know but were afraid to ask

????????????????????

Q. What kind of vehicle do you need to own in order to get rental work?
A. Any kind. Vehicles of all kinds and conditions are used in filming. We rent out on a regular basis cars, trucks, motor scooters, motorcycles, trailers, and motorhomes.
Q. How old does a vehicle have to be in order to be eligible to list with and get rental work?
A. Any year. Vehicles of all years are used. We have rented everything from a 1903 Oldsmobile to a 1999 Dodge Viper.
Q. Does my vehicle have to be in mint condition?
A.
No. The majority of time production companies actually prefer something in good condition. However, certain shoots call for vehicles to be in show condition, and then, on the other hand, sometimes they are specifically looking for something with dents and or faded paint. Exotics, such as Lamborghinis, Maseratis, Porches, etc., and luxury cars such as Rolls Royces, Mercedes Benzs, Jaguars, etc., generally are wanted in good to mint condition. In contrast to pick-up trucks in the 50's, 60's, and 70's, which are generally wanted in poor to fair condition. The bottom line however, is that vehicles in every condition are used.
Q. Does it have to be in running condition?
A. Yes. Even though the shot might not call for the vehicle to move at all, it often has to be moved several times to get it in the proper shooting position and the crew frowns upon having to push vehicles.
Q. What about airplanes?
A. No. We don't rent airplanes, boats, or bicycles, although we have rented all of these at one point in time in the past. Us getting requests for these happens so infrequently, that it wouldn't be fair to take your money. Their are companies that deal exclusively with these, and your chances for getting work would be much better with them.
Q. Can I drive my own vehicle in productions?
A. Yes and No. The decision is yours. Obviously, if you vehicle is chosen to be driven by the character played by say Brad Pitt, then unless you're the spitting image of Brad Pitt, no, you can't drive your vehicle. When you list your vehicle, you designate whether you will allow the main actor or actress to drive your vehicle or not. If your vehicle has been chosen to be used in a commercial, and the commercial is not featuring a principal character, then yes, in most cases you can drive your vehicle. And, under some circumstances, they will even pay you an additional fee, along with your regular set fee. If your vehicle has been chosen for background work, then your vehicle will be driven by you and only you. A fee for you driving has already been built in to your set rental rate, whether they use you driving your vehicle or not.
