We’re always working to make the process of larger rentals simpler for the KitSplit community. As filmmakers ourselves we understand the frustrations that can arise when you need to put together the gear you need for a shoot. KitSplitters have always been able to find solutions on KitSplit for getting a lens, light, camera body, microphone or a full kit they need to shoot their projects.
When you’re looking at a longer term production or a production with greater gear needs it can sometimes feel difficult to source what you need, though. We’ve heard the feedback from our members on this and that’s why we’ve put together multiple solutions that can help both renters and owners fulfill larger rental needs.
Do-It-Yourself Tools for Larger Rentals
Putting together your own rental order and communicating directly with owners to figure out if they can fulfill your needs is something a lot of our users prefer. So, we’ve updated the platform to make this even easier.
First among the new features is our Multi-Item Search. We heard from you, the KitSpit Community, that single item search just wasn’t cutting it when you had a big shoot on the horizon. So, we built this feature to streamline your rental experience. Now you can enter every item you need, pick a category, and search for your entire gear list. Best of all your results are sorted by gear owners who have the most items on your list first allowing you to prioritize getting all or most of your gear from a single owner.
Send a List
Utilize our Favorites Lists to build a package you can share with other members of your team to confirm your gear list before adding it to your cart. As an owner you can use favorite lists to build a package you can send to potential renters who may not know everything they need. Create the list and then just click “Send this List” to share the link to the list.
We wanted to make it simple for you to have a sense of what our owners had to offer just by glancing at their listings in the search results. So, we implemented Owner Badges. Now, next to each listing you’ll see if a user has 20+, 50 +, or 100+ items available to rent. You’ll also see badges for Rental Houses so you can quickly identify them in your search results. This can give you a much better sense of if a single owner can offer everything you need for your big production.
