Options for Insuring a Rental

Every Rental Requires One of the Following Coverage Options:

Bring your own Insurance

If you have your own equipment insurance, you're welcome to email us your COI and we'll apply it to your job.

The COI billing Name and Address must match your rental agreement billing information. See Rental Guidelines FAQ.

Get an Athos Quote

Lightbulb is partnered with Athos Insurance to offer a variety of convenient insurance quotes depending if you need just Equipment coverage, or up to an entire Film Production Insurance package.

Take a look at the links below to apply for a quote for insurance!

Credit Card Hold

For small orders, purchasing insurance isn't always price-effective. For *some* orders under $3000 in replacement value and requesting no high-value items, we can apply a credit card hold instead of insurance.

See Rental Guidelines FAQ for more details about how Credit Card Holds work at Lightbulb.
