  • Rentals must be requested at least 24 hours in advance.

  • Payment in full must be received to hold reservation. An invoice will be sent at the time of reservation confirmation and it must be paid within 24 hours or the reservation will be released.

  • Each group must have a primary renter that is 21 years old or older. All items will be rented to that individual. He/she will be responsible for ensuring the safety of others in the group, including adults and children, and ensuring appropriate treatment of equipment. A current driver's license or photo ID must be presented at time of pick-up.

  • Winter Rentals: Individuals using rental equipment during the winter must be fully prepared for the extremes of Maine winter, even during short outings. This includes, at a minimum, appropriate layers of synthetic or wool clothing with a waterproof outer layer, hat and gloves, insulated boots, extra layer, hand warmers, a light source, and energy food.

  • Summer Rentals: You must respect the power of the ocean, rivers, streams, lakes, and ponds. They can kill you if you do not take the proper precautions. 

    • ALL PEOPLE ARE REQUIRED TO WEAR A PROPERLY-FITTED PERSONAL FLOTATION DEVICE (PFD) WHILE BOATING OR PADDLEBOARDING IN ANY CAPACITY. You understand that use of a PFD does not remove all risks of injury, nor does use of a PFD make boating or paddleboarding inherently safe. 

    • Up to two (2) PFDs are supplied by GearME with every boat rental. Additional PFDs are available to rent. 

  • Consumption of drugs and alcohol are not permitted during use of rental equipment.

You will be charged a fee up to the brand new replacement cost of the Rental Equipment if it returned damaged, or not returned, regardless of the age of the Rental Equipment at the time of rental. GearME shall determine, in its sole discretion, if damaged Rental Equipment will be repaired or replaced at your expense.

Appropriate and additional load-securing accessories, such as foam blocks or additional straps, may be available upon request.
