RENTAL POLICIES AND RENTAL AGREEMENT
Rental Start Date/Time:
Rental Return Date:
This document is divided into two parts. The first part, Rental Policies, is our explanation of what we agree to and what your responsibility is when renting gear from DAYPACKED. The second part, Rental Agreement, is a legal document. If you have any questions about any of this, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call us at (509)637-0384. Thank you and we hope you have a great outdoor adventure!
DAYPACKED sales and rentals are subject to the following terms and conditions. Rental gear is also subject to the DAYPACKED Rental Agreement which is in this document immediately following the Rental Policies.
Your start date is the day you need your equipment. We will drop off your gear where you are staying, the evening before your start date.
We will pick up the gear from where you are staying. You are responsible for letting us know where and when. Packs returned after 9pm on the last day of rental will be charged for additional time.
You are responsible for returning your rental gear in a dry condition. If you don’t return gear dry, we will charge you an additional fee. Mold and mildew can do a lot of damage and we don’t want to charge you for it.
Don’t be Late
We make commitments knowing that you will have your gear back on time (9pm the last day of your rental period). If for some reason this doesn’t happen, we will charge you a daily fee equal to the price of a standard rental pack.
DAYPACKED understands that there will be general wear on the gear. We make sure to source the best gear, gear that lasts years. With that in mind, rips, and tears, stains and missing parts, burn holes, and dents, etc. are things we will charge you for.
Lost or Stolen Gear
When you rent, the backpack becomes your responsibility. If we don’t get it back, we will need to charge you.
Please reserve your gear as far in advance as possible. We rent our gear out on a first-request, first-fulfilled basis.
If you cancel one week or more in advance of your pick-up date, you will not receive any charges. If you cancel less than one week in advance of your start date, we will charge you in full.
The rental packs contain consumable items that you are free to use/consume as you wish. These include: snacks, water, sun screen, toilet paper, hand sanitizer, bug spray, and hand warmer.
