LensProToGo Merges With Lensrentals

Written by Paul Friedman

Hello and Happy Holidays to everyone! I have some amazingly exciting news here at LensProToGo. This week, we announce to the world that we will be merging with our friends and largest competitor, Lensrentals. As some of you may already know from personal experience, the team at Lensrentals in Memphis runs a great business, take wonderful care of their customers and they will be an amazing partner for us at LensProToGo.

So, if things were going so well at both companies, why did we do this? First, it’s important to note that both companies have been thriving for a long time now. We are both focused on getting everything right for our customers while providing an easy and wonderful experience. But like all successful companies, we want to be even better in our second decade of existence.

Together, we’ll be able to leverage all of the strengths of both companies. Lensrentals is amazing at leveraging technology and logistics to manage the movement and maintenance of the largest rental inventory in the world. Being centrally located near the FedEx hub in Memphis has allowed them to efficiently ship to and from all corners of the country.

LensProToGo’s strengths include providing amazing service to all of our customers large and small. Many of you already know that when you have a question about your upcoming shoot, call us up and we’re here to offer you our unbiased help. Need a particular solution for a huge project you have on the horizon? You know we’re here to craft that custom solution for you. In the car and need to place an order? Give us a ring and we’re here to get that order in for you.

It’s important for you to know that both brands and websites will continue to exist. If you’re a loyal LensProToGo customer and you want to stay with us, great! If you’d like to try Lensrentals for whatever reason, please feel free. If you love picking up gear at any one of our existing pickup locations, those options will still be there for you.

We’ve all seen mergers before where the press release informs everyone about how wonderful it’s going to be for all of their customers and employees. And then a couple of months later, prices go up, service plummets and hundreds of employees are laid off. I assure you this will not be the case with our two relatively small companies. We’re forever committed to providing you with the best experience you have ever received from any company you have ever interacted with.

It’s also important to me that you know that no one at either company will be laid off. We’re very loyal to all of the people who helped us get to where we are. We still have a lot to accomplish with all hands on deck!

We’re tremendously excited about being able to combine all the great things LPTG and LR do for our customers and I’m so looking forward to the year ahead.  

In the meantime, whether you’re a new LPTG customer or have been with us for many years, I thank you for your business and your loyalty. We could not have made it here without you! We are forever committed to helping you achieve your creative vision in the easiest way possible. Have a truly wonderful and peaceful holiday season.

All the best,
Paul
