Kansas Grip


We would love to work together! Our goal is to make your experience with us as simple and as smooth as possible.

We are happy to provide a quote for your specific equipment list or if you are not exactly sure what equipment is necessary for your job we would love to help you to determine what is needed. Send us a list or call for our help.

Browse our equipment inventory and select the cameras, lenses, lighting, grip and other production equipment & supplies your project will require. You can create your list right within our website and send it to us. You can also email your needs or pick up the phone and give us a call. If you need something that you don’t see please let us know and we will do our best to get it for you. Once we have an initial communication and know the scope of the job we will determine availability and offer alternative solutions if your requested equipment is unavailable. Then we will provide you with a written quote. Upon approval we will send a contract for you to E-sign which will hold the equipment specified for your production days.

If you are renting equipment only without crew, equipment can be picked up from our studio the day prior to your start. We are also happy to deliver it to your location or hotel and pick it up after your project wraps.

Equipment is rented on a daily basis. To accommodate early call times we allow pick up the day before your call and returns are due back by 10 AM on the morning after your project wraps. We offer weekly rates. 5-day rentals are billed at 3 days and 7 day rentals are billed at 4 days. Monthly or other longer term rentals are also possible.


Full payment for your rental is due at pick up unless terms have been discussed and agreed on or you have an account set up in advance. Payment can be made via cash or check at the time of pick up or by credit card prior to pick up.
