Payment must be paid in full BEFORE the equipment pick up. No credit or refund will be issued for items not used or items returned early.
All cancellations should be made at least two business days prior to the rental start date. If the Outdoor Adventures Rental Center is not notified two days prior (enough time to make the equipment available to other renters), a cancellation fee of $10 might be assessed. Cancellations can be made via e-mail at email@example.com or phone at (919)684-0691.
All equipment must be checked in with an Outdoor Adventures staff member during operating hours at the time specified on the rental agreement. Renters will be charged the 1-3 day rental rate for each item not returned between 1-3 days. After 3 days, the renter will be charged the 4-7 day rental rate for each item (in addition to the 1-3 day late fee). This will continue until the gear is returned. However, if the equipment is not returned within three weeks of the scheduled return due date, the renter will be charged full retail value of the item and shipping costs. Renters will be charged full retail value and shipping costs for any missing equipment.
