Rental Terms & Policies

Rental Period

We charge for all time out including Sunday and holidays. Our rates are based on equipment being used on a standard 8-hour day per 24-hour rental period. Extra time out or for use of an item more than allowed time will result in rental rates being adjusted proportionately. All reservations must be honored within 1 hour of time requested or equipment will be considered available for rent.

Minimum Rental Period

All items have a predetermined minimum rental. Some are 4 hours, but the majority is 1 day.



All rentals are paid in advance, except to pre-approved charge accounts. Payment is accepted in cash, approved check or charge card (MasterCard, Visa, or Discover). A driver's license or other acceptable photo ID is required for all rentals.

Maintenance & Cleaning

Customer is responsible for prudent care of equipment. Included in this is gasoline, oil level, damaged, flat tires or abnormal wear. Equipment leaves full of fuel. There is a charge for the gas. Oil levels are checked prior to rental and are expected to be maintained by the customer. Equipment must be returned clean or a cleaning charge will be assessed. Some items require a cleaning deposit when rented.

Customer Responsibility

Rented equipment is the responsibility of the customer until it is returned and they are issued a return receipt and the equipment is checked in. In the case that the equipment is lost, damaged in any way, or stolen, the customer will be charged the full replacement or repair cost in addition to the rental cost. Your personal insurance agent should be consulted regarding your coverage on rental equipment. Please read your rental contract which contains important terms and conditions. The customer is responsible for receiving proper instruction and checking equipment before they leave the store. A damage waiver will cover any damages except that of neglect. Neglect includes, but is not limited to items damaged, while loading or unloading, in transit, by fire or by the customer's dismantling. The damage waiver does not cover tire damage, damage to diamond blades or loss of any equipment and/or accessories. The customer will be billed for the replacement cost of lost equipment. If property is stolen, customer must present a police report and pay cost of item.


Delivery is available on most of our equipment at an additional charge. Charges will vary depending on distances from the store and the size of the equipment.
