New web portal for rental and production companies launches, a new industry-supported web portal for rental and production service companies in the UK has launched this week.

The website is designed to address what it says are the three most common needs requested by these firms by providing a one-stop platform for instantly-searchable nationwide production services and hire stock, as well as an online brokerage for all used equipment, including audio, video, special effects and lighting gear.

Owned and managed by Jessica Faulkes, the new website features three sections:

Used Equipment

Enables companies to sell excess used stock and also purchase from available listings.

Nationwide Hire

For when existing hire stock needs a temporary boost, offers a listing service searchable by any combination of equipment type, keyword and region.

Production Services

A searchable database of freelance engineers and other services. The site aims to facilitate the nationwide search by service, keyword and region so users can access the skills they require anywhere in the country.
