Mission Statement

Bal Sanghera set up Run Hire in 2013, to run alongside his Post-Production company Run VT (Est. 1995). We are in a unique position to offer a one stop solution from kit hire, filming, editing to final delivery. Run Hire has established itself as one of the leading broadcast kit hire companies in central London.

By working with our clients to meet and match realistic budgets and expectations, we are able to provide services to current and potential clients in both short and long-term projects. Each job that Run Hire takes on is personalized as we like to get to know our clients and not just the job in hand, which in turn helps us understand their needs and expectations. We encourage them to ask questions and if needs be pop in to test the equipment and being located in the centre of London we are able to provide a fast turnaround of kit to meet the most demanding time constraints that the client may bring to us.

“A great set-up with decent prices, Simon and the Run Hire team provide a level of service that is second to none. They’ve even picked up and filmed for me before when I’ve been short-handed. My go-to guys”

Duncan Wilson, Producer Fifth Street Production

From Our Clients

With over twenty years in the industry we have worked with every one from small independents to the most prestigious film & television companies, here are a few words from some of our clients.

“RunHire is a great team.  Nothing is a problem and we’ve always got the kit we needed – in tip top condition and quite often at very short notice!  We couldn’t recommend them highly enough.”

Miles Jarvis

Managing Director, Phoenix Television

“Having never used Run Hire before, I can safely say I’ll be using them again and again. Great service led by Simon and his team, always accommodating and had everything I needed, also very flexible with our ever-changing schedule. Thanks again guys!”

Ola Thomas

Production Manager, Pulse Films

‘’Having used Run Hire for over a year as a freelancer with various companies they are always my go to hire company. They can always help with whatever kit you need and are there to give you advice on which kit would best suit the shoot, and if you have forgotten to ask for something or a last-minute request comes in they will get this to you in record time, either to your office or to a location. They are always happy and friendly to help over the phone and in person when they deliver the kit and I would recommend them to any company.’’

Francis Matthews

Senior Production Coordinator, Monkey Kingdom

“Run Hire is run like a 24-hour operation, no matter the time, day, or place, they deliver good as new equipment. You’ll struggle to find better value anyone in London.”

Roy Agyemang

Creative Director, Doc Hearts

“I have used Run VT for both post-production and hire facilities across a number of different production companies. They are quite simply, the most friendly, supportive and flexible company I have ever used – and that’s why I always try and bring projects their way whenever possible!”

Nick Bedu

Senior Producer

“RunVT has to be one of the friendliest places to work in town. That combined with their swanky new premises make it a truly relaxed and creative place to work. Being able to hire camera kit on site, as well as a space to film when needed, keeps everything easy and flexible for us. A great team of thoroughly lovely people!”
