When selecting your rental start date, select the date you will need to have the equipment by. Your end date will be however many days after you receive the equipment based on your rental period. For example, your shoot is for 4 days starting on the 15th, your rental start date would be the 15th, and your rental period would be for 4 days. Your rental would need to be dropped at a FedEx location on the 19th. The rental period is the start and end dates that you need the equipment. Shipping times are not included in your rental period.
