Yes, Lens Rentals Canada is my company and we've decided to shut it down. While it's profitable, there were too many other issues with the business that didn't make it a fun endeavour. The press release is the the politically correct version of why. :)

Thanks to everyone in Canada that has supported us through the years, and a big “thank-you” to our friends and mentors at for all their help!

Lens Rentals Canada Shuts Down Operations

Owen Sound, ON.  As one of Canada’s leading professional photography gear rental agencies, Lens Rentals Canada (LRC) is officially announcing its closure, effective immediately.

Two main factors have influenced the decision to cease operations.  The first is increased logistical issues with shipping carriers.  Lens Rentals Canada has been unable to confidently ship product to and from customers using existing Canadian carriers. This issue has negatively impacted the high level of customer service standards expected at LRC.  The second influence involves personal reasons. The owners of LRC are seizing this opportunity to reconnect with their passion of photography and explore the globe.

The team at LRC would like to thank all its loyal customers for choosing LRC for all of their high performance photography rental needs for the past five years.   Driven by the same passion to capture ‘the perfect shot’, the owners and staff have enjoyed assisting clients across Canada and supplying them with high quality rental gear.

If you have a reservation with LRC, you will be contacted in regards to the status of your order.  We are aiming to meet all reservations currently in our system.

All inventory at Lens Rentals Canada will be sold with a full 90-day warranty.  Interested parties are asked to contact LRC directly.
