What's happening ?

We have spent the last six weeks behind the scenes focusing all our energy into preparing the business for “return to work”. With social distancing and safety procedures in place we have re-opened our Uxbridge facility and are ready for business. With that being said, we are currently open by appointment only. The safety of our employees and visitors is our number one priority and as result we will require additional safety measures when entering our facilities.
 

Further information on our epidemic controls and risk assessment can be found on our website: https://www.arrirental.com/en/terms-conditions
 

If you are planning a production and want to shoot, call us and let’s plan together – we’re here and ready to help get the industry moving again.
 

We look forward to seeing you soon!

To whom it may concern:

(Association of Studios and Production Equipment Suppliers) have found themselves under a degree of pressure, to re-open their businesses to Production.
