Here's an interesting one.This guy goes live next week and his prices are superb(just check out Calumets prices and you will see why). He's the only person in the UK offering this service through the post and when he finally gets the insurance in place some of the more exotic items will definitely be worth considering. I hope he does really well.
Certainly looks good £47 to hire a 100-400 for 7 days is rather tempting. However if you loose it or damage the lens you get charged for the full amount, sounds a bit iffy if you ask me, especially as he is using couriers. Certainly needs to find insurance from someone out there.
He's a genuine guy and is in the process of getting insurance in place.The postage part would be covered by the postal company as far as insurance is concerned.It's just incase you lose or damage the lens the insurance is for.Some household policies actually cover you for on loan items. I fancy trying the 500 F4 for a week but at nearly £5000 to replace I won't bother until he gets the insurance in place.The guy as seen a gap in the market so good on him.
