The Standard 3-Ton Grip & Electric Gear List

  • Our 3-Ton is ready to roll!  Includes a doorway dolly, 36' of track, muscle cart, senior magliner, lift gate and a combo lighting and grip package.

    The 3-Ton Grip & Lighting truck has enough equipment to light most webisodes, short films, corporate videos, industrials, smaller commercials, and smaller indie features!  It also has enough space for add-ons.

  •  keep in mind that this list is our normal load-out -- however, it is subject to change at any time (gear already on rental with another customer, in repair, or otherwise indisposed). To be safe, you must call ahead and discuss your actual equipment needs with us, otherwise the truck may be loaded with everything except the one piece of gear you need most. Be safe and call us at (408) 406-1832 to confirm exactly what you need.
  • Truck always comes with a light hollywood driver. Their rate is not part of the truck rental.

Rental Terms

Except under special circumstances, all our grip trucks require a signed Light Hollywood contract, an insurance certificate (loss payee, additional insured, and non-owned and hired auto), 100% payment for the rental, and a member of Light Hollywood as a driver / crew member (price negotiable). If any of these terms doesn't work for your production or you have special concerns, please feel free to give us a call.

Keep in mind about our Light Hollywood crew member requirement: with myself or a Light Hollywood member as a driver for every truck, I am proud to say in over 10 years and over 1000 jobs I have never billed anyone or their insurance for a loss claim over $150, and only one damage claim over $500. This system has worked very well over the years to minimize or eliminate loss & damage, and is designed to protect both Light Hollywood and you. If you ever question the value of this requirement, ask Cinelease, Wooden Nickel, or any other rental house what's the largest claim they've ever filed. The numbers are staggering.
