How does rental usually work?
Inventory:
All of our locations carry a large selection of rental tools and party equipment, most of which is on view. Stop by one of our locations to inspect the items you may want to rent and pick up a price list. You can also visit our web site which has both photographs and rental rates listed.

Quotations:
We will be happy to prepare a quotation for you. All we will need is the date of your rental and the equipment you plan to rent. Note: A quotation does not reserve the equipment.

Reservations:
If you know what you plan to rent and when you will need it we will be happy to make a reservation. By making a reservation you will be assured that we will have the equipment available when you need it. Reservation can be made by phone or in person. We do require a deposit which can be made with a credit card.

Rental:
In order to rent equipment we will need your driverís license for identification. We will also need your address, phone numbers and a credit card for the deposit and the rental payment. (The name on the driverís license and the credit card must be the same.) Arrangements should be made in advance for cash deposits or if you want to open an account.

Rental Rates & Equipment Return:
Your rental fee is based on the time you have the equipment out of the store. All rental rates are shown on our rental contract and on our web page.

Tool Rental:
The rental fee for tools is based on either partial days or full days. A day is considered to be 24 hours long. Therefore, if you rent a tool today at 2:00 PM and it is on a one day rental, you will be expected to return it the next day by 2:00 PM.

Party Equipment Rental:
Party equipment is rented for the event. Our normal rental period is for one day, however we do allow you to pick up the equipment the day before the event and return it on the day after the event for a one day rental rate.

Extra Charges:
We do charge an additional fee for late returns. All equipment should be returned in the same condition it was in when received. We also charge for damaged equipment, equipment not returned or equipment returned dirty.

Delivery and Pick Up:
We offer delivery and pick up for a nominal additional fee. Call for a quote. In order to give an accurate fee we will need the delivery and pick up dates, the address including the zip code, phone number and a contact at the delivery site. If special delivery or pick up dates or times are required, i.e. not during normal working hours of 8:00 AM to 4: 00 PM - Monday through Friday, there will be an extra charge.

Unless otherwise stated, all deliveries are tailgate drop off service to the ground floor. Items will be stacked by the driver upon delivery. It will be the customerís responsibility to move the items to specific locations on site. Please make sure all items are stacked in the same location for the pickup. .

What payment options do I have?
We accept VISA, Master Card, cash and checks. Sorry, but we cannot accept checks from new accounts or for deposits on the day of the rental.
