Curbside Pickup for GRTV

posted by Chris Kotcher on 06/11/2020

Now more than ever it is important to capture & share your stories in this community. To help facilitate, while also keeping everyone safe, GRTV is now offering limited equipment checkouts via curbside pickup! This will be the first phase of our reopening.

Curbside Pickup:
Tuesdays & Thursdays
by appointment only
616-459-4788 ext. 117

Grand Rapids Community Media Center
711 Bridge St. NW
Grand Rapids, MI

Checkout Instructions:
Please call us in advance to schedule your appointment, 616-459-4788 ext. 117. Make sure to confirm with us over the phone or via email so that your reservation is officially booked. If you are running late or need to reschedule please let us know. When you arrive to the building for your pickup/dropoff time, call us so we are aware you are here; and one of our staff will bring the equipment out to your vehicle. To not block traffic, please pull into the parking lot and wait just north of the telephone pole & sidewalk. If you can bring your own pen to sign your reservation form that would be appreciated. Wear a mask if possible, as we are following CDC guidelines for health safety & social distancing. If you are feeling sick, please do not schedule appointments so as to protect the safety of GRCMC staff & other members. If needed, we are happy to help coordiinate equipment rescheduling or cancellations. Please make sure your membership is up-to-date, which you can do all online.

GRTV Procedures:
We are continuing to take all possible precautions to keep everyone safe. All equipment & cases will be wiped down upon their check-in. All checked-in equipment will also be kept in an equipment-quarantine for 3 days, which is the current estimate for COVID-19 maximum life-span on a surface area. So these equipment resources will be safe for you & others.

Facility, edit suite, and studio reservations are not yet available. But let us know that you are interested and we can put you on the list to be contacted for when they open back up. Thank you for your patience while we all work through this together. Questions or concerns? You can reach us at:  616-459-4788 ext. 117 or via email at:
