We hope you will find the answer here to some frequently asked questions. If you need more help, please don't hesitate to contact us on the address below.
What is The Props List?
The Props List is a central database, populated by anyone who has props, costume, set, lighting, or anything related to Theatre, TV Film or Event Production that they would like to share or hire. The aim of the project is to build a UK wide central database of available items that is free to search, and a central resource to help the better sharing of resources within our industries.
How does it work?
The database of items and supplies is available to everyone. Everyone is free to search the database or the list of suppliers. If there is an item or supplier you are interested in contacting, you just fill in the enquiry form and the site will put you in touch with the relevant person.
How do I list my items
Just sign up and then click the link in the 'Your Profile' section. Once you have completed your details you will then be able to list your props store, set collection or costume on the database. You have the option to list your items with a hire price should you wish and you can state your terms and conditions related to your items. You will then become part of what we hope will become the UK's largest resource of it's kind available. Anyone can sign up as a supplier if they have items to list.
What does it cost?
The site, like it's sister site Set-Exchange.co.uk, is free to search and use. Suppliers can post up to 50 different items. If you would like to place more then please contact us for further information.
Do I have to sign up?
If you wish to contact a supplier, we ask that you sign up and log into the site. This is so we can verify your email address to prevent spam for our suppliers. If you already hold a login for Set-Exchange.co.uk, this login will also be valid for ThePropsList.co.uk. By logging in you will also be able to save lists of your favourite items in the form of a props list. You can set up as many lists as you wish.
What are my 'Props Lists'?
Your 'Props Lists' are a place to store your favourite items from the site. You can create any number of different lists to store your favourites so you can group items by project or production. You can name each list, add the details of the project it relates to, and even add your show or project logo to the list too. All lists are private to you and your login. To add an item to your props list just click the 'Add to Props List' button on the page of the item you like. If you don't have a list set up, the site will create one for you. You'll need to be logged in to save items and access your lists.
What is a dormant item?
As a supplier you may mark any of your items as dormant at any time. A dormant item will still appear in your listings but wont appear in the searchable database. It might be that your item is out on long term hire, and that you don't want to delete it, but at the same time don't want to keep answering enquiries about it.
