It’s easy – right out of the box.
- HOW LONG DO THE BATTERIES LAST BETWEEN CHARGES?
Our radios have an expected average battery life of at least eight hours, but that’s an average figure that can vary greatly. How often the radio transmits, how many watts are used and the age of the batteries are some of the factors that can affect battery life. Therefore, it’s important to add extra batteries to your order. We recommend one backup for every two radios you rent.
- WHAT IF MY RENTAL EQUIPMENT GETS DAMAGED?
We understand that equipment can suffer cosmetic damage (dings and scratches) while in use, and if minor damage does occur you will not be held responsible. If major damage occurs (or if your rental equipment becomes damaged to the point where it is unusable) please let us know and we can offer a next-day replacement if needed, though you will be charged to cover the cost of repair or replacement of the damaged unit/s.

Once your rental units are returned, we’ll provide you with a summary of lost and/or damaged equipment, if applicable.

However, if a “lost” (and paid for) item is found and returned to us IN WORKING CONDITION within one year, we’ll provide a full credit for its return.
