  • General Policies

    The customer accepts all responsibility for injury, disfigurement, or death from use of rental equipment.  It is the customer’s responsibility to check over equipment and to note any pre-existing problems before leaving the ORC.  Equipment may be reserved up to 60 days in advance with payment of the rental fee.  Equipment may require a deposit.  All equipment is due on the scheduled return date.


  • Refunds/Cancellations/Defaults

    Cancellations made 4 or more business days prior to the scheduled pick-up date will receive a full refund.  Cancellations made within 3 business days will forfeit 50% of the rental fee.  Customers failing to pickup reserved equipment will forfeit all monies, except deposits.  For reservations with a Friday pickup, Monday is the last day to cancel while getting a full refund.  Alterations that decrease the reservation value 50% or more of the total value of the reservation will be considered as cancellations and will be treated as such regarding refunds.    Refunds will not be given for equipment that is unused or returned early.


  • Late/Loss/Damages/Fees

    Equipment returned after the scheduled return date will accrue fees at the daily rate for each day late.  Equipment must be returned clean, dry, and properly packaged or a fee will be assessed.  The minimum cleaning fee is $20, plus $20 per additional hour of cleaning required.  Customers will be charged for any alteration of equipment.  Any loss or damage that is present on the equipment once it leaves the ORC is the responsibility of the customer.  Cost of lost or damaged equipment will be the retail value of the item plus 10%.  The customer will have 5 business days to make full payment of fees from the date notified of fees.  Delinquent fees will be charged to WSU student accounts, if applicable.
