Rental Policies


IDENTIFICATION
Proper identification is required. Requirements are based on risk of loss. Some items may require a thumb print and/or CASH equal to list price of rental items

.
RATES
ALL RATES ARE SUBJECT TO CHANGE WITHOUT NOTICE. All rentals are subject to terms and conditions of the rental agreement. ALL RATES PLUS TAX. Some items may require fuel or purchase of additional sale items at extra cost. Some items may have changed or may no longer be available.

DEBIT CARDS vs VISA/MASTERCARD

We take a deposit equal to 1 days rent on all items per transaction, at the time of pickup. At times an additional security deposit may also be taken.

Using a debit card, the bank charges your bank account immediately for the entire deposit. Banks typically take days and sometimes weeks to credit estimated charges back when actual charges are less - even if it is in the same day. The same could apply if you are close to your credit limit on your credit card. Our customers tend to think that Aba Daba Rents is holding their funds, when in reality it's the customers bank. If you have any questions please call us and we wiil try to further clarify.
