Is a holding fee placed on my credit card during the rental period?

No, we currently do not put a hold on your credit card during the span of the rental. If the Optics are not returned in a timely manner, full retail price of the Optics and any other rental equipment will be paid for by the customer.

Do you take reservations?

Yes, we do take reservations. You can make them as far in advance as you would like.

Is the equipment in good condition?

Of course! If we would not use the Binocular or Spotting Scope, we are not shipping it. We run a check of each Binocular or Spotting Scope when it arrives back from a rental and a second check before it leaves for another rental. We guarantee the Optic to be in working condition and the glass free of any scratch marks. There might be a couple light scratches on the Optic body but nothing that will affect its ability for viewing. If we find that it's not up to the standards of excellent image quality we will not rent the Binocular or Spotting Scope and send if off to service. Once again, we want to make sure your experience is as enjoyable as possible.

What comes with my Binocular or Spotting Scope rental?

The Binocular or Spotting Scope you ordered, front and rear covers, as well as the original carrying case. For Binoculars there will be also be a shoulder strap. A tripod comes standard with all the Spotting Scopes and for the 15x56 Binoculars. These are all shipped in a Pelican case for protection. If all items that were shipped are not returned you will be charged for the replacement of that item. Once we receive the Binocular, Spotting Scope, or other items your credit card will be credited back for the replacement charge.

For example, if you booked online for Sunday, Mon, Tues, Wed, Thurs, Fri and Saturday for a weekly rate, you will receive the Optics on the Friday before the first Sunday (at the latest) and Optics4Rent needs to receive the shipment back by Wed following the end date of Saturday. If Optics4Rent doesn’t receive it on Wed we will start charging a daily rate until it is received. With FEDEX we track all packages and get live tracking on that item.
