I rented some equipment from Gary for a work event and had a great experience! I would highly recommend RVAV. Very quick to respond, friendly, and professional. Will definitely use again!

Gary and his team were exceptional! He was responsive and flexible as we were planning with our venue coordinator. We received news that created an obstacle regarding our wi-fi connection and set up time for the crew. Not only did Gary and his team get ALL the equipment we needed in time, his quick thinking saved our team roughly $8,000 on equipment. We will certainly be using them for our future events!

I called up Gary one week before our DIY wedding when another contract fell through, and our experience with him and his team could not have gone better. He was so helpful and took time to listen to our needs to make sure we had the right equipment. His team helped make sure we all knew how to work everything before sending us on our way, and encouraged us to give them a call at any point if we needed any help. The equipment we rented was easy to use and everything sounded GREAT. I highly recommend RVAV for the DIY Bride and groom!!

RVAV was amazing to work with from start to finish. Gary's team did an initial site visit and had great suggestions on how to maximize lighting in our backyard space. They were very flexible the wedding reception weekend when the weather wasn't exactly cooperating with our original setup. They set up Friday, finished up Saturday morning, came back to cover up lights from the rain in the afternoon, and broke down lights after the reception that night and Sunday afternoon. They worked well with our tent vendor Party Perfect. Anne was especially kind and helpful, and Noah had great ideas on creatively lighting the space. I highly recommend RVAV and would use them for future events in a heartbeat. They truly were the all star vendors for our reception!

On behalf of the Chesterfield Chamber, RVAV allowed us to deliver "hollywood studio" quality presentation for our Virtual Gala. In the midst of people suffering from Zoom fatigue, we were challenged with developing a program that kept people engage, tuned in and excited. Once the "GALA Movie" was over viewers stayed tuned in still participating in the Chat on how they wanted to keep the show going. That was the goal...having viewer hanging on to seat for the next episode. I couldn't have asked for anything more. The team was top notch and they were affordable and willing to work within a budget.

Recently we hired Gary to do the AV for a client's event. He was very professional and went above and beyond to make sure we had a great event. Every detail was handled in full and he brought out some extra special touches on event day that really made a difference. We can't wait to work together again!

Working for non-profits, I am very cost conscientious. Gary went out of his way to ensure our events were done professionally at a cost we could afford. Any issues that came up during the event, he and his staff were responsive and made necessary corrections. Live events take skill and the ability to problem solve. We look forward to working with Gary again.

AWESOME COMPANY AND EXTRAORDINARY CUSTOMER SERVICE!!!! I was faced with a situation wherein a piece of video equipment failed on Friday preparing for an event. We were scheduled to leave going out of town early Sunday morning. I called around to a few companies and I assume because it was late Friday afternoon no one responded. At this point I'm in full panic mode... I then ran across RVAV Production website and was amazed and surprised that this company was local and had so much to offer. So, I called and the owner Gary Gauldin answers. I then go on to describe to him my situation with my fingers crossed and he immediately said to me, no worries, we can help, what A sigh of relief.... after arriving , not only did he have what I needed, he introduce additional options. I could go on and on but I will end by saying this. After experiencing such awesome customer service from the owner and product selection, I recommend RVAV Production!!! Thank you Gary...
