Security Deposits/Replacement Guarantee


A credit card with an available limit high enough to cover the replacement value of all equipment being rented
is required as security from customers lacking established Mid-Co accounts. Security deposits are not required
from customers with an established credit account with Mid-Co A/V Inc..


Mid-Co A/V, Inc. reserves the right to impose the full replacement value of the rental order via renter’s credit
card at the time rental equipment is picked up. If a customer does not have a credit card with a sufficient
credit limit, a cashier’s check or cash deposit for the full replacement value of the equipment is required.
Personal checks and debit cards will not be accepted as a deposit. Proper identification is required.

Loss or Theft/Damage/Insurance


The renter is wholly responsible for any loss of or damage to the rental equipment during the rental period.
Insurance coverage is not offered by Mid-Co A/V. Proof of adequate financial resources for the full replacement
value of the equipment, as well as personal accident liability insurance while using equipment, may be required
prior to the rental. Rental fees will accrue on equipment that is lost or stolen until Mid-Co A/V is reimbursed
for the full replacement cost of the item(s). Replacement costs for equipment are available upon request.


Additional Equipment Charges


The renter is fully liable for any and all damage to or destruction of rental equipment. Equipment must be
returned in the same condition as it was when checked out or damage and/or cleaning charges may apply
(including, but not limited to, fog Juice). All cables must be returned neatly coiled and cleaned to avoid
additional fees. Additional rent may be charged on returned damaged equipment until the item can be repaired
or replaced.


Spare lamps are provided upon request at no charge, provided burnt-out lamps are returned with the

additional hourly lamp usage rate.


Equipment not returned as per rental contract will be charged for additional rental time, this includes all time
the equipment is in the renter’s possession even if the equipment was not in use.
