Return Policy for Purchased Products
Products purchased or rented through the Website may be returned, at your own costs, in accordance with these Terms of Sale.

Proof of purchase is required in all cases. Product returns may be denied or made subject to restocking fees and other charges by the Company.
Product returns by business customers, if not prohibited above, must be made within thirty (30) days from date of purchase, unless otherwise indicated. The Company does not take title to returned products until the items are received by the Company at the applicable return location.
Members: Past Due Payments and Collections
You confirm that you are 18 (eighteen) years of age, or older, prior to setting up an account as a member with us.
We will have the right, in our sole discretion, to levy certain fees on members’ accounts in the event of late payment. Such fees will be charged at $1 per day after being 5 days past due on membership payment. These fees will continue to accrue until the property is returned or the full amount of the equipment, and the associated fees, is paid in full. The member’s account will be terminated after 7 (seven) days of being late on payments, requiring our equipment to be sent back within 72 hours from the 8th day.
In the event that the member’s account is terminated for non-payment, and the gear is not returned within the specified 72 hour timeline, the Company will immediately file legal or collection action against the member which will result in a minimum filing fee of $100. The member will be billed for related recuperation fees (including but not limited to filing, serving, court cost, travel expenses, legal expenses, repossession fees) that result from our activities to pursue judgment.
The Company reserves its right to:
- Deny or terminate an account at any time, for any reason, and especially, but not limited to, where it suspects fraudulent or risk averse activity on a member’s account.
- Use data collected from ID verifications, payment details (through Stripe), and in certain cases credit checks to determine account eligibility and security deposit requirement.
- Require security deposits for any accounts showing high risk, accounts that submit non-drivers license IDs, and accounts using prepaid cards. In this instance, the member is referred to our pre-paid card security deposit policy located on our Website.
- Use third parties for collections, repossession, and legal action.
- Use any available information on members, both from the data that is submitted at sign up as well as any data that we can find publicly available, to pursue legal, repossession, or collection actions.
In the event that you fail to communicate with the Company during any attempt to repossess, collect, or seek payment for non-returned merchandise, this will be considered as non-compliance and breach of contract.
Service, Support and Repair
The Company has no obligation to provide service, support or repair except in accordance with any express warranty applicable to the covered product. If it is determined that the product needs to be returned for service, support or repair during any applicable warranty period, you must follow the applicable return procedures set forth in these Terms of Sale.
Rentals: Optional Damage Protection Plan Participation
The following provisions are applicable if you have elected to participate in the Damage Protection Plan. You acknowledge and agree that you are solely responsible for any excessive wear and tear, damage or loss to the products rented from the Company, and the Company has the right to charge your debit or credit card on file to cover the cost of the same. The Company has established the Damage Protection Plan to off-set the cost of excessive wear and tear, damage or loss to the products it rents. You may elect to participate in the Damage Protection Plan by submitting to the Company a non-refundable payment in the amount set forth in and on the date of submission of the Order (“Protection Plan Payment”). The Protection Plan Payment is a one-time, non-refundable payment that is tied to the specific products listed in the Order under which you elect to participate in the Damage Protection Plan. For products covered by additional and future Orders, you must elect to participate in the Damage Protection Plan and you must make the additional Protection Plan Payments set forth in such Order. For products covered by an Order pursuant to which a Protection Plan Payment has been made (“Covered Products”), the Company will accept the risk of excessive wear and tear, damage or loss to the Covered Products. You will continue to be required to return, at your own cost, the Covered Products to the Company at the end of the Rental Term, but the Company will make any required repairs to the Covered Products at its expense. If you return the products to the Company in their Original Condition, normal wear and tear excepted, you will not be entitled to a refund of the Protection Plan Payment.
