Today, we talk about drone rentals. Renting equipment can be a cost-effective alternative to buying one, particularly in cases where you’ll only be using it for a few jobs.
Kevin from NJ calls in with a question about this very situation. Does it makes sense to purchase a thermal camera if he only has one or two jobs lined up? Considering the cost of a thermal camera, probably not!
Luckily, there are a number of drone rental services. Certain companies will allow you to rent drone equipment so you can get work done without spending a ton of money. Looking for a drone rental service? Tune in to find out where you can find one!
Don’t forget to enter the Drone U Giveaway. One lucky person is going to receive a Mavic Pro!
