Geometrics Inc. offers both short and long-term rentals of our full line of geophysical instrumentation. This includes land and marine seismic systems, land, marine, and airborne magnetometers, as well as our full line of electromagnetic equipment. We have over 50 years of experience, and you can rent with the confidence that comes from knowing you are getting the finest equipment and customer support, directly from the manufacturer.

Our rental rates are among the most competitive in the business. And, if you choose to purchase the instrument you are using, we offer both rental credits and used equipment discounts. Contact us to find out how much you can save by renting or purchasing a refurbished system.

In addition to the signed rental agreement, at the time of the rental you will need to provide a certificate of insurance for the value of the equipment rented (or a cash deposit). Please note that we need 5 business days to complete your application and the first order may still require Cash In Advance (CIA) payment terms.

Below is a partial list of instruments and their rental prices (all prices in USD). We do request a minimum of 5 days advance notice before the start of the rental, as this helps ensure that we will have the instrument in stock. In general, the earlier that you submit your rental request, the more likely we'll have that instrument available. To begin the process, please submit your information in the form below:

Rental fees are calculated on the total time the instrument is out of our warehouse and begin the day we ship the unit. To minimize travel time, we usually ship our instruments via FedEx Priority Overnight. We do not charge you for the day the instrument returns to our warehouse. For example, if we shipped the instrument to you on a Monday and it returned to us on Friday of the same week, we would charge you for 4 days of rental time plus the mobilization and shipping fees.


Certificate of Insurance (COI) is required from Lessee prior to commencement of the rental period. Lessee is responsible for insuring the rental equipment for the full replacement value, cost of damages, and against loss from all perils. See Equipment Rental Agreement for more details.
