Rates & Policies


Please contact Chicago HD to inquire about rates and scheduling at 312-951-9610 or click here to email us. We try to work with our clients when it comes to budgets and may bid projects on an hourly, daily or a conditional flat rate basis. Only equipment rental rates are published on this web site.

Scheduling and Rush Options

Scheduling your project as far in advance as possible is always ideal, but we understand the last-minute nature of the business. We try to turn jobs around same day or as quickly as our schedule allows. Jobs ordered after 1:00 pm for same-day delivery may incur a rush charge. Weekend and holiday sessions are billed at a premium rate.

Late Start / Cancellation Policy

We make every effort to have our talent and equipment ready for your session to begin on time because we understand that your time is valuable. Services are billed from the time a session is scheduled to begin until the end of the session. Please try to arrive to your appointment on time. Call us if you have changes to your schedule so that we can adjust our schedule to accommodate you. Cancellation charges may apply to clients who cancel their session less than 24 hours in advance.

Tape Stock Policy

We sell broadcast tape stock to our mastering and duplication customers and guarantee its quality. Clients are welcome to supply their own tape stock, however these materials must be provided to us prior to the time of service, no substitutions. Chicago HD is not responsible for dropouts or tape errors that may occur on tape stock that has been supplied to us by our customers. Customers are responsible for compensating Chicago HD for any time incurred correcting these errors and/or switching to replacement tape stock.
