Terms and Policies

Here’s The Rules, Ya’ll:

(Rental terms in plain English)

1. Have fun in these vehicles!
We hope you’ve made the right choice for your adventure, but we are not responsible to pay you back if you are not having fun, or have not made the right choice for your adventure.

2. Don’t trash the vehicle, or we will have to charge you a $200 deep cleaning fee.
To avoid the deep cleaning fee, don’t smoke (anything) in the van, and take care of the interior.

3. Return the vehicle on time, with a full tank of gas.
All pick up times are 10:00 AM (except by prior arrangement) and drop-off time are 2:00 PM or earlier (special times may be available upon request and are subject to vehicle availability). A $5/gal fee will be deducted from your security deposit for refueling. The late fee is ¼ of the booking rate per hour (4 hours late is charged for an extra day). You’re responsible to pay the full booking, even if you pick your van up late or bring it back early.

4. Mileage & generator (if applicable)
100 miles/day included. Additional .42/mile thereafter.

4 hours/day generator time included. Additional hours $3/hour thereafter.

5.  Insurance is required.

You will have the option to choose one of three levels of insurance protection for your rental. If you’re in an accident, call the police (911) and then call us: 828-775-7246. For minor damage that doesn’t involve another vehicle, call us.

6. Super important!
Only drivers who are listed on the rental agreement can drive the vehicle. If someone not listed on the agreement has an accident, the insurance will not cover it, and this will be very expensive for the renter that signed the agreement. Drivers must have a valid driver’s license. Check the expiration date of your license! We cannot hand you the keys if your license will expire during the reservation.

7. Other things that would get expensive for you:
If you’ve given us the wrong information (like a fake ID) and something happens, you would be totally financially responsible for any issues. Don’t drive it under the influence (there’s no need – you’re already home!) and don’t climb around on the roof. Don’t break the laws of the road, and be careful on unpaved roads. Passenger and driver must wear seat belts, so do not travel with more passengers than the vehicle can legally accommodate.

8. If it breaks down, we’ll do our best to get you back on the road promptly.
If necessary, we will refund the remainder of your booking.

9. Lock it up.
We’re not responsible for your stuff, and we expect you to protect our stuff. If anything happens, call the police (911) and then call us: 828-775-7246.

10. Deposit, cancelation fees, and other possible fees:
Your security deposit will be refunded when you bring the vehicle back in good condition. You have 100 miles/day included in the rental charge, and then will be charged .42/mile thereafter. We can take these fees out of your deposit, but you’re responsible for any fees, even if they exceed the security deposit.

11. Valid license. 
You must have a valid driver’s license and be at least 25 years old to rent.

12. Pets are welcome.
There is an additional cleaning fee added for traveling with a pet so that we can fully remove pet hair and dander from the vehicle. Do not leave animals unattended in the vehicle at any time.
