TENT TRAILER RENTAL INFORMATION
HOW TO MAKE A RENTAL RESERVATION: Reservations must be made in our office either in person, by mail, by email or by fax. No reservations will be accepted by telephone.
DEPOSIT: A $100.00 deposit is required at the time the reservation is made. When the trailer is picked up, we require an additional $100.00 cash deposit and a signed credit card imprint (excluding American Express). This is to cover damages and late fees. When the trailer is returned on time, clean, and not damaged the entire deposit will be refunded and the credit card imprint voided. A chart listing damage and clean-up fees is located in the shop/rental office.
Note: Certain events require a $500.00 deposit due to past history of excessive damage.
CANCELLATIONS: Cancellation notices must be received 7 DAYS PRIOR to the reservation date in order to be refundable. IF NOT, THE $100.00 DEPOSIT IS FORFEITED!
INSURANCE: The renter must show proof of liability insurance and a valid driver’s license since he is responsible while pulling the trailer. ALL DRIVERS MUST BE AT LEAST 25 YEARS OLD. This is a new requirement from our insurance company. If the damage is incurred while hitched up to the trailer, you must turn the damages into your liability insurance company. The customer is also responsible for damages to the unit while not in transit.
PROPANE GAS: A tank for propane gas will be furnished at no charge. Renter will not be responsible for bringing the trailer back with a full propane tank. Renter assumes all responsibility for the use of the propane. There is a place to purchase propane less than ½ mile from us.
WIRING: Rental trailers are equipped with a 7 -way plug. If needed, we can install a 7-way harness on your vehicle for a fee. The cost of wiring will vary with each vehicle. These items will then become the property of the renter. If we are going to wire your vehicle, please allow ample time for this process.
HITCH: Renter is required to furnish his own 2” hitch ball. We can install a hitch if needed. Please call for a price quote. The 10′ trailer weighs approximately 1700 lbs empty. If you have a small vehicle, consult your owners manual for towing capabilities. The top of the hitch ball must be between 14″ and 20″ from the ground.
HOURS OF SERVICE: Trailers should be picked up between 9:00 am and 11:00 or 1:00 and 4:00 pm Monday thru Saturday. RENTALS MAY NOT BE PICKED UP ON SUNDAY FOR ANY REASON. Rentals may be returned between 9:00 am and 11:00 or 1:00 am and 4:00 pm Monday thru Saturday. Rentals may be returned on Sunday by 4:00 pm. We are closed Sunday but will check at 4:00 pm to see that they were returned. The unit will not be checked in or deposits refunded until Monday. Please make an appointment for a pick-up time, either a morning pick-up or afternoon pick-up when you make a reservation.
DEMONSTRATION & CHECK OUT PROCEDURE: Please be aware that it may take up to an hour to pick -up the trailer. Please allow time for us to go through the trailer and demonstrate the operation of it. You will be required to sign an inspection sheet citing the condition of the trailer. If you see something damaged, bring it to our attention and we will repair it or make a note of it so you will not be held responsible. “IT WAS LIKE THAT WHEN I GOT IT” will not be an acceptable excuse to keep from paying for damages if not noted on the inspection sheet.
PAYMENT: Deposit and rent are payable in full in advance or at the time of pick-up. Rent will be charged for each night the unit is the possession of the renter. The rental day ends at 4:00 pm. Rental deposits that are made within 7 days of pick-up time must be paid by cash or credit card. NO
REFUNDS WILL BE MADE FOR TRAILERS BROUGHT BACK EARLY because we have to make other rental reservations based on the dates that the renter said he would have the unit.
MINIMUM RENTAL: There is a 4-night minimum on Memorial Day, 4th of July, and Labor Day weekends. The rest of the year there is a 3-night minimum.
NIGHTLY RATES: $85.00 PER NIGHT, $490.00 PER WEEK AND $70.00 PER NIGHT THEREAFTER.
