Our Reviews

What our clients have to say

It's all 5-star reviews, on every review site.

Lightbulb Grip is an excellent rental house. I am a freelance DP and Gaffer. The staff there is always very easy to work with and accommodating. I’ve shot several features using their equipment and everything is always very well maintained and clean in working condition.

The personal attention and great selection means I couldn't recommend Lightbulb highly enough. Great team, great gear, and a great experience overall. I'd recommend them to anyone.
