About Us

Who are you guys?

Department Blue is the Tennessee Valley's largest grip and lighting rental house. Our main location is in Chattanooga, TN however we also supply equipment locally to Atlanta, GA; Birmmingham, AL; Knoxville, TN; Nashville, TN; and Huntsville, AL.


As the saying goes - "have trucks, will travel". We've been all over the country supplying grip trucks and lighting equipment to both large and small productions. Department Blue specializes in commercials, reality and episodic television, music videos, and small to mid budget feature films.

What kind of stuff do you have?

We stock a wide range of standard grip and lighting equipment including Tungsten, Kino Flo, HMI, and LED lighting. We also have camera support including dollies from JL Fisher, Crawford generators, location equipment, and much more!


We're commited to offering the best gear at fair prices. With top brands like American Grip, Arri, Kino Flo, Litepanels, and more - you'll never have to worry about delayed production because the equipment wasn't working.


Department Blue also stocks and sells expendables. We keep gaff tape, trick line, gel, and more in stock everyday. Most of the time we can match or beat internet pricing plus you don't have to pay shipping. Plus, you can get your purchases instantly instead of waiting days or paying overnight fees.
