Rental Policies

To protect the investment in and integrity of our equipment, we have several policies in place to ensure the safe handling of ORC rental gear.

General Polices

It is the customer's responsibility to check over equipment and to note any pre-existing problems before leaving the ORC. The customer may set up equipment or examine it as needed.

ORC equipment is designed for a specific function. It is the customer's responsibility to use equipment only for its intended use.

Outdoor Recreation staff will explain the proper and safe use of the equipment as needed.  This explanation is not a substitute for training from a certified professional.

Equipment may be reserved up to 60 days in advance with payment of the rental fee upon reservation.  Equipment may require a deposit.

Customers may be limited to renting certain items for themselves only (e.g. Skis, Snowboards).

All equipment is due on the scheduled return date. 

WSU students, faculty and staff, as well as the general public (18 or older) may rent equipment from the ORC.

The ORC reserves the right to refuse service.

Refunds/Cancellations/Defaults

Cancellations made four or more business days from the pick up date will receive a full refund. Cancellations made within three business days, with the exception of same day cancellations, will forfeit 50% of the rental fee.

Alterations that decrease reservation value 50% or more of the total value of the reservation will be considered cancellations and will be treated as such regarding refunds.

Customers failing to pick up reserved equipment will forfeit all monies, except deposits.

Same day cancellations will be considered items that have not been picked up and will not be subject to a refund.

Refunds will not be given for equipment that is unused or returned early.

Late/Loss/Damages/Fees

All equipment is due on the scheduled return date.

Equipment returned after the scheduled return date will accrue fees at the daily rate for each day late up to five days from the third and final  contact attempt.

Rental items not returned within five business days of the third contact attempt will be considered lost and be subject to full replacement costs plus a 10% restocking fee.

Equipment must be returned clean, dry, and properly packaged or a fee will be assessed. The minimum cleaning fee is $20, plus $20 per additional hour of cleaning required.

Customers will be charged for any alteration of equipment (e.g. removal of thwarts from rafts).

Any loss or damage that is present on the equipment once it leaves the ORC is the responsibility of the customer. Cost of lost or damaged equipment will be the retail value of the item plus 10%.

The customer will have five business days from the third contact attempt to make full payment of fees. Delinquent fees will be charged to WSU Student Accounts, if applicable.
