Frequently Asked Questions

What do I need to provide when your lights come on-site?

Just a flat area that we can park the trailer on a hard surface.

The 4 beam and carbon arc searchlights have trailers with built in generators, so power is not required for these.

The smaller HID sidewalk lights requires a standard 120 volt outet that can provide 10 Amps per unit. Each light comes with a 50 foot power cord.

We have quiet inverter generators that we can provide for an additional fee for each pair of HID Sidewalk lights.

This sounds expensive, what is the costs?

We take pride in providing a very cost effective rental rate. Please request a quote or call us for our pricing.
