I am very very happy with my relationship with Set Scouter. They make sure everything is organized and you are protected against any kind of damage. They are interested in your concerns and work on behalf of the client and the production company. I would highly recommend Set Scouter!

Beverly, Member Since 2014
A professional company that maintains constant contact and strives to resolve issues with speed. I felt they were looking out for the host’s interests first and foremost which made me feel more secure in the decision to use my apartment for shoots. The rental rate is also better than Airbnb plus you can return home when the team leaves at the end of the day.

Eric, Member Since 2015
This was our first experience with Set Scouter and our first booking. We definitely got lucky with an excellent and professional renter/crew, but Set Scouter was informative and communicative throughout the process. It's daunting to leave your home in the hands of 15-20 or more complete strangers, but Set Scouter made this process better and put us at ease.
