Tips for renting equipment
- Call your local American
Rental Association rental store and describe the project you would like to
complete with rented equipment. When rental store personnel know the details
of your project, they can recommend exactly the type and size of equipment
you'll need for most lawn and garden and home improvement or repair
projects. They also will help you organize the additional supplies you'll
need to complete the job correctly. Many rental stores carry all the extras,
such as sandpaper or detergent for example, to do a professional job.
- Before you actually go to
the rental store, organize the work area so you can use the equipment right
away when you bring it home. For example, if you're shampooing a carpet,
remove furniture from the room before you pick up the shampooer. This
preparation can save you money because the rental center charges for the
time the equipment is in your possession - not for the time you actually
spend using it.
- When you pick up the
equipment, the rental store employee will explain how to use it safely and
correctly. If you don't understand the instructions or feel uncomfortable
about operating the equipment, ask for more information.
- Make sure you understand the
rental store's rates, store hours and policy for returns. Depending on the
rental store, you may be able to rent equipment by the hour, half day, day,
week or month. Generally, hourly rates have a set minimum time that is less
expensive than renting for the entire day.
- Make sure you understand
your responsibility for the equipment. Generally, the rental store is
responsible for equipment maintenance and will replace equipment that breaks
down during normal use. But when damage occurs because of a customer's
negligence or misuse, he or she is responsible for repair or replacement.
For expensive equipment in your possession, construction equipment and tents
are examples, you may need to provide on-site security or purchase temporary
