When it comes to renting camera equipment or gear, there are only two major brands that come to mind — LensProToGo and Lensrentals. And today, the companies are announcing that the two are merging together to form “the strongest photo and video equipment rental company in the United States.”
Announcing the merger on the LensProToGo blog, Head Honcho Paul Friedman says:
Together, we’ll be able to leverage all of the strengths of both companies. Lensrentals is amazing at leveraging technology and logistics to manage the movement and maintenance of the largest rental inventory in the world. Being centrally located near the FedEx hub in Memphis has allowed them to efficiently ship to and from all corners of the country.
LensProToGo’s strengths include providing amazing service to all of our customers large and small. Many of you already know that when you have a question about your upcoming shoot, call us up and we’re here to offer you our unbiased help. Need a particular solution for a huge project you have on the horizon? You know we’re here to craft that custom solution for you. In the car and need to place an order? Give us a ring and we’re here to get that order in for you.
Paul says that both the brands and their websites will continue to exist going forward, so it seems the merger is effectively just the companies working together and leveraging each other’s leads towards the same goal. More importantly, Paul stresses that no one at either company will be laid off.
