Great service, and I was able to pick up in Brooklyn and drop off in Manhattan, which made my day.

Renting from CSI was a great experience. I easily arranged pickup and dropoff logistics through this site and the lens was in perfect condition and gave our project the look I wanted. CSI was also super accommodating when our 1 week shoot turned into a 3 week shoot and I needed to extend the rental.

Helpful customer service and very easy to work with. Would recommend.

Flexible and easy renter. Let me rent from Manhattan and return in Brooklyn.

I've had nothing but pleasant experiences renting from CSI and this was no different. Stellar service, all around.

Professional and on point!

Great! Easy pickup and dropoff.

Renting through CSI was great. The booster was in perfect condition and they were extremely nice and helpful. Thank you!

Great rental experience!

Would rent again!

nice guys in store- had a lot of trouble processing my order though. Waited in the shop for an hour.

Awesome light great to glamour shots.

Great, company very accommodating, gear and lens where in great shape.

Always great renting from CSI!

Great fixture! Thanks!

CSI was very accommodating and incredibly quick to respond. Elements beyond our control were messing with our shoot dates and CSI was very understanding.

The lenses were all ready for pick up when arrived, very quick and simple. The lenses themselves were great! Exactly what I needed for my weekend shoot. Thanks so much!

Incredibly easy pickup and return. Couldn’t have been smoother. Thanks!

Camera’s great. A couple of employees I dealt with were great.

The experience of dealing with the rental house was less than stellar. I would highly recommend renting from individual over this rental house even if it is slightly more money. They’ll be more understanding, friendly, and helpful.

Maybe they’ll straighten up their act and not toy with the customers and be more professional.

Easy rental, came with everything I needed. Perfect!

Picked up in Brooklyn and returned to Manhattan. Having the insurance via kitsplit was a plus. Also I requested camera with clog and got it. Good experience overall

Leaked a little, but really helped us out when we needed it.

My rental was confirmed within a reasonable time period and pick up/drop off were very smooth. Thank you!
