Rental Agreement

Rental Price Per Month

The rental price is calculated at 10% of the retail price. The price listed is per month. If you wish to rent the equipment for longer, you can rent for up to 3 months. Each month will incur an additional rental fee to be paid at the beginning of each month.

The rental date starts the day equipment arrives to you and ends 30 days after. The rental equipment is to be sent back the day after the rental period has finished or if falls on a weekend or holiday, is to be sent back the next business day.


With each piece of equipment rented, there will be a bond to be paid. This bond will be refunded within 7 days of the rental equipment being returned and inspected. If during inspection, there is any sign of damage, the bond may be fully or partially witheld. It is very important when shipping the equipment back, that it is returned with all original packaging – including padding.


There is the option for Local Pick Up in Lambton 2299 at the checkout to void the shipping charges. 

Upon completion of the rental period, the equipment must be returned in its original, condition (in which it came to you) and with all original packaging and including all accessories, parts and manuals that it came with. The return address will be emailed to you at the end of the rental period.

Purchasing Equipment

If you have decided you would like to purchase the equipment you have rented, the bond and return shipping fee may be withheld as part payment, with the balance to be paid within 14 days. There will be a 10% discount on used rental equipment and a 5% discount on new equipment.
