On-cam light rental

I have a wedding client that insists on the use of on-camera lighting (yes, I have read all the threads on it here; let's not start another pro/con debate :-) ). Does anyone know if there's any places in LA that rent these out? I don't want to invest in a high-end on camera light until I know it's going to be justified.

Also, I ususally shoot with dual DVXs, but am considering PDs if I can get a good rental rate. Anyone have any good leads?

Thanks,
Dave

I use a Frezzi 50 watt mini fill with softbox, and it saves me in all kinds of situations...weddings, interviews, run and gun. I couldn't live with out it. I use it on my Canon XL2, powered by anton bauer battery.
Best investment I made.
