At Shooting Cars we are used to working with tight deadlines, short notices and weird and wonderful requests. We are here to take some of the pressure off from the many tasks that need to be done in a short time period as we understand the entertainment/media industry.
Just find the perfect vehicle for your project from our list and we’ll do the rest. We liaise with the owners and take care of all the paperwork. So you can focus on all the other creative things you need to do!
When you receive a brief/script with any kind of vehicle, anywhere in the UAE, come straight onto over to www.shootingcarsuae.com. You can search through our database of cars, on your phone, tablet or laptop, and easily send us a shortlist directly from the website.
Should you not find the vehicle that fits what your requirement, email us what you are looking for and we’ll do our best to find it for you from one of other sources.
Please find below answers to some of the most common questions you may have with regards to booking a vehicle on the shooting cars website. You will also find our Terms and Conditions at the end of the FAQs.
What does Shooting Cars do?
We help connect owners of vehicles with TV, film, photography, advertising and event’s agencies who are organising film and photo shoots or events that require vehicles as props.
What will the cost be?
The fee varies greatly depending on a number of factors – the type of vehicle, the location of the shoot, time required, etc. The hire fee is required to be paid 100% in advance to confirm the booking.
Is there a cancellation fee?
Yes. Most owners have to make special arrangements to make their vehicle available for you. They often have to book time off work, re-arrange appointments as well as preparing the vehicle, etc. For this reason, should you subsequently cancel the booking, or the shoot is moved to a date where the vehicle in not available then there will be a cancellation fee of 50% of the hire fee.
What sort of vehicles can you provide?
Any type of vehicle you can think of! Classic, vintage and veteran cars, modern family cars, trucks, camper vans, etc.
Who will bring the car to the shoot location?
The owners or their representative will accompany their vehicle to set.
Who is responsible for any damage?
You are fully responsible for any damage when on set or under your control or direction.
Who can drive the car on set?
Only the owner or owner’s representative is allowed to drive the vehicle on set unless agreed in advance in writing.
Can the talent drive the vehicle?
Subject to the owner’s approval, talent can drive the vehicle. Please note that additional insurance may be required which would be at an extra cost and would need to be organised by you.
Can I deal with the owner direct?
We invest a lot in adding to and maintaining our databases and our contacts. Therefore, once we provide you with the contact details of any owner you agree that all future bookings will also be made through us.
This agreement is between the Company, Owner and the Client (as defined below).
