The Gear By the Piece order form allows campers to rent equipment for up to fourteen days. Odyssey Gear Rental understands that your adventure may not always fit neatly into an order form. We are flexible and will try to meet your needs. Email us and let us know what you have in mind. Remember: transit times are on us and are not included in your rental period.
How do I pay for an order?
Odyssey Gear Rental accepts all major credit cards. For your convenience, payment may be made when your order is received. We can also arrange to take credit card information over the phone. Phone orders bypass the high monthly fees associated with online merchant banks and allow us to keep our rates down.
Does Odyssey Gear Rental charge a sales tax?
Yes. All orders placed and received in Michigan must be charged the state's 6% sales tax.
Can orders be changed or cancelled?
All orders may be changed or cancelled prior to delivery. Please send requests to firstname.lastname@example.org. Once your equipment has been received, the order cannot be altered or cancelled.
How is the camping equipment maintained?
Odyssey Gear Rental cleans every rented item upon return. We do not rent equipment that is not deemed fit for public use. For that reason, we do not rent water bottles or eating utensils. If you need these or other personal products, please visit the new Odyssey Gear Rental store. If the item you need isn't listed, please contact us and we will help you find the right product for your trip.
Can camping equipment be purchased?
It depends on the item. Please contact us and let us know which items(s) you would like to purchase.
