Great professional services and down to earth people to talk with. I rented lighting gear from this company and they suggested me the right setup for an interview. Communicating through email while being in Canada was clear. Everything promised was executed. Equipment was top notch. It looked almost new when I took it out of the packaging. I had no issue with anything being broken. Spare bulbs were provided. All I needed was included. They know how to pack things along with necessary accessories needed for the shoot such as lighting gloves. Thanks guys! Will be back... and I enjoyed New York!

LightHouse Films provided our shoot with rental audio gear. Thibaut personally handled the order from reservation to returns. He was easy to reach, helpful, and followed-up afterwards, which is why I think he and his company deserve a very positive review. During an unusually busy week with less than ideal lead time, LightHouse offered our production the gear we needed. They quickly delivered a replacement for a microphone that was not functioning properly on set, and provided us with extra connectors we requested, free of charge. As someone who has worked for and with several rental houses in the area, I feel they stand out from the rest while offering competitive pricing for their market.

These guys are awesome. I'm always able to get what I need, even if it's short notice. They're always willing to help, and have great recommendations on equipment in case you need the help. Plus, they take the time to look through all the equipment with me and explain how stuff works in case it's something I'm not familiar with. Top notch!

It was really awful. When you pick up the gear, the stuff were all good. But it turns out, the gear don't really work, and when you drop them off, you explained the problem, they refused to even check it for you!!!! Awful place!!!!! I hope you don't go!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Response from the owner - 5 months ago
Hey Yuanru! Thank you for this honest feedback and our apologies if your experience with us has been less than perfect . The Glidecam HD4000 you rented is working perfectly fine (it went through a full check after you dropped it off, which is our regular procedure). Our team refunded you nonetheless to show you sign of goodwill and kindness. We pride ourselves in carrying equipment in top notch condition and take time to check all gear that comes back to make sure it goes out in perfect condition for our next renter, that's the reason why we don't rush check when our fellow filmmakers return their orders. We're a boutique shop and take great pride in taking care of our clients. As any steadicam, gimbal or stabilizers, the Glidecam HD4000 is not that easy to use or set up and requires fine tuning and adjustments when doing so. We understand it can be frustrating indeed but it has nothing to do with the actual equipment. When renting a piece of gear that you've never used before, we recommend spending more time during check out and asking our technicians any questions you may have so they can show you how to properly learn how to use. We're here to help and only want our clients to have successful shoots! Thanks again for renting with us, ~The team at LHFNY

Renting from Lighthouse Films was a really great experience. What I liked best was that I could print out the documents I needed from their website, fill them out, scan them, and email them in. I took care of all of the paperwork before I even got there. When I arrived, all I had to do was sign a paper and leave with the equipment. It was so quick and easy. I appreciate quick and easy. However I stayed for a few minutes for the guy to go over how to use the equipment to make sure I got what I wanted out of it. I am definitely using them for my rental needs going forward. I felt the prices were fair, and now I am excited knowing that I have a place to get the equipment I need for the shoots I have coming up in the next few months. Thanks Lighthouse Films!

LightHouse is an invaluable part of each and every one of our productions. Their rates are consistently the best in the city, their gear is always well-maintained and Steven, Thibaut and the gang are helpful, knowledge and, importantly, flexible. With new gear coming in every week, I can’t recommend them enough.

Working with Lighthouse Films was an easy and amazing process from start to finish. They helped me set my rental insurance all within 24 hours. Also, they took the time to setup a custom package tailored to shoot that I was working on provided awesome tips and advice for what equipment would work best. The prices are the best in NYC and the manager Mr. Thibaut will personally help you get the best insurance, equipment and gear to best fit your needs. They are definitely the best place for productions rentals in the city and I plan on working with them again.
