Equipment Care

Equipment should be properly maintained and returned clean, dry, in good repair, and on the due date to avoid repair, replacement, or late charges. All late, damage, and/or replacement fees are due upon return of equipment.

If UREC Outdoors staff discover damage to equipment during maintenance and cleaning, renter is responsible and must pay for damage or replacement costs. Please read the renter's agreement for more information.
