Frequently Asked Questions
- Why is the brand changing to Wex Rental?
Calumet Photographic and Wex Photographic have now merged to offer an improved experience and wider range of products to photographers and filmmakers across the UK. The improved Wex rental facility offers more products and services, making it easier to hire the right equipment for your shoot.
- As an existing Calumet customer, will there be any changes to my account?
No, all current account credentials will remain the same.
- Why are you moving to a new location in London?
Our current site in Drummond Street is subject to a Compulsory Purchase Order as part of the HS2 development and we have to vacate the site by the end of November.

Wex Rental will be located on 250 Kennington Lane, Unit C (SE11 5RD) in central London, a short walk from Vauxhall and Oval stations.
