What if I return the equipment late? 

If the equipment is returned after the agreed upon due date, the renter will be charged the daily rental fee for every day late. Equipment not returned by the end of the semester it was rented in may be considered lost or stolen and will be charged the replacement fee. List of replacement fees available upon request. 

What if I damage or lose the equipment?
