If you have selected delivery, please ensure that the truck can get to where you want the equipment. If the driver cannot drive to where you want the equipment, you are responsible for moving the equipment from where the truck can get to where you need it, and back to the same location at the end of the event. For safety reasons, our driver cannot walk equipment around. Equipment will be delivered wherever the truck / trailer can get.
We will happily refund your full rental fee if reservation is cancelled at least 10 days in advance of the reservation date. Cancellations made with less than 10 days to the reservation date will be subject to a charge equal to 50% of the rental cost. The reason for this policy is that most butchers require at least one week to order a pig. If you give us less than 10 days of notice of cancellation, it's very unlikely that we'll be able to find a customer who can get a pig in time.
