2. Tell us When and Where you Need the Gear
You will be asked for your "Rental Start Date" in the checkout process.
Your Rental Start Date is the latest date you must have the gear delivered or the date you will pick up the gear from Mountain Side.
Ship to your home, a hotel/resort, a friend's house - wherever UPS can deliver
If we are shipping the gear to you, please consider that UPS delivers gear 1-5 business days after the day we ship the gear. This is based on your provided delivery address (View UPS delivery-time map more shipping info). Your start date must be during the work week (Monday-Friday) to accommodate UPS delivery days
You pay for outbound shipping (to you) at checkout and return shipping when and where you return the gear. You are not charged for the days the gear is in transit.
