We like to be transparent with our expectations. We go through this exact check list when every piece of rental gear is returned, every time. That way you can rest assured that when you rent gear from us it's functioning, it's got all of the parts, and it's clean. Use this list as a guide for when you return your rental. 

Please also remember that we charge a $15 cleaning fee all rental gear that's brought back wet or excessively dirty. Any broken or missing items will also be your responsibility to replace. For more info on that, check out the Rental Terms page.
