"I just wanted to send a quick note to thank you for all your support on this project. Your efficiency and kindness was much appreciated and all the musical instruments were absolutely great for Wednesday's filming! The drum kit was so good you convinced one of our F1 drivers to buy his own drum set."

On the phones, friendly, knowledgeable staff are happy to share their expertise, whether dealing with first-time enquiries or long-standing industry clients.

FX Rental’s discount structure guarantees that everyone benefits from competitive rates, regardless of the length of rental period.

Regular film and broadcast clients include the BBC, LWT, Shepperton and Pinewood studios, Warner Bros, New Line Cinema and Soho post production facilities.
