MARCH is working on this deal, since metro NYC is our backyard.

For anyone interested: we always require a signed contract with strict 
rules about how our artifacts can/can't be used by renters. In the past 
few years we did most of the computers for "The Americans", "Halt & 
Catch Fire", Apple/MSFT episode of "American Genius", and a major 
Hollywood film that I can't reveal, along with several smaller deals. In 
each case, the contract requires proof of their insurance; numerous 
rules about transportation, storage, and (of course) actual usage; and 
additional rules requiring MARCH delegates to on-site if anything needs 
to be up and running. Everything from wrapping to power to proximity of 
any open beverages is covered. Related: there are some artifacts we 
won't rent at any price due to value/rarity/size/etc.
