Vintage computers in movies

The discussion of classic computers in the movies has prompted some
commercial thoughts. Is there any money to be made in renting classic
computers to movie makers? People in SoCal, New York, and up here in
"Hollywood North" might be able to fund their hobby that way. Anyone have
any experience with this? Is damage to the rented items a big risk? Did you
have to provide a catalog of your systems to the Prop people? Could you add
value by providing "historically accurate" setups for different eras (e.g.
an Apple II with period peripherals for an early 80s film) I'd be
interested in any feedback from people with experience in this area.
