If you forget to charge the battery and become stranded, you may call us and request a delivery of a fully charged battery, at a fee of $50 during business hours (9AM - 5PM, Monday - Friday) and $75 all other times. If the Renter is a no show for the specified delivery time, they will be charged the normal fee plus an additional $50 NO SHOW fee. Renter may then request a re-delivery for same day (if available) or next day at the standard rate. If Renter loses the key during rental a $100 fee for key replacement fee is charged. Each unit has a unique security key, and for security purposes it cannot be copied or duplicated. In case of loss, the unit must be exchanged for another one for your use, and the unit with the missing key is required to be removed from service to have the key assembly professionally replaced. Again, an additional $50 NO SHOW fee is in full effect.
