Frequently Asked Questions

Looking for more info? Here are some things we're commonly asked

What if we need a rental item for Saturday evening only… do we have to pay for two full weekend days?

Weekend rate is normally only 1.5 times daily rate. This includes you picking up your order Friday afternoon and returning it by Monday 12 noon.

What if we are from out of town and we can only pick up or return something on the weekend?

Arrangements can usually be made to accommodate your schedule.

Do you deliver rental equipment outside of Syracuse?

Yes. For small items that can be delivered in a minivan, the price is $0.65/mile and $25/hour.

Are longer term rental periods available at a discounted rate?

Yes, the longer the rental time period the less expensive it becomes per day.

What do you charge for delivery of rental equipment?

For Syracuse, delivery is $20 and pickup is another $20.

Do you deliver evenings and weekends if necessary?

Yes, when necessary but we would rather deliver during normal business hours for your convenience and ours and to keep the cost down.
