Rental rates are based on a daily (24 hour) rental period). Weekend rental rates are based on a daily rate which covers the period Friday, 12:00 p.m. to the following Monday, 12:00 p.m. For deliveries, we try to deliver the day before your event and pick-up the next business day after your event for the one day daily rate. The rental rate applies whether or not the rental item is used.
Advance reservations are recommended to ensure that the items you want are available. We rent on a first come, first serve basis, so it is suggested that you make a reservation as soon as you know what rental items you want. A minimum $40.00 reservation fee is charged for each reservation and is applied toward the rental cost of the equipment.
Reservation Changes and Cancellations
Order changes and cancellations may be made without penalty within 7 days of the beginning of the rental period (14 days for tent rentals). Cancellations and change reductions within the cancellation period are subject to forfeiture of the reservation fee.
Reservations require a receipt of a reservation fee of $40.00. The reservation fee is applied to the rental cost. Payment of the full rental cost is due prior to delivery or at the time of order pick-up. Payment may be made with you chip credit card.
Each rental requires a security deposit of at least $100.00. The security deposit for most rentals is one-half of the rental cost, with a minimum of $100.00.
