Professional results require a greater understanding of the tool that is being used. For this reason, those who wish to borrow our professional equipment may be asked to demonstrate their knowledge of the equipment or schedule time to be trained on the equipment. In addition, borrowing professional equipment also involves greater financial risk in the event of loss or damage.
