Policy & Procedures
1. All orders require a P.O.#.
2. All rentals are 1 week minimum.
3. Monthly rates are for 28 days.
4. Daily rates are 1/7 of the weekly rates.
5. LGH offers discounts based upon duration of rental – determined when order is initially placed.
6. Rentals start the day after shipment if shipped by a common carrier such as UPS or FedEx. LGH would prefer to ship equipment collect. If it is necessary to be shipped prepaid, a charge will be added to the freight invoice.
7. For customer pick up, rentals start the day of pick up.
8. For local delivery by LGH, rates are determined depending upon distance of delivery site from the LGH rental center from where the equipment will be delivered.
9. Rental stops when customer contacts LGH to terminate the rental and receives an off-rental release number. LGH would prefer for a customer to return equipment prepaid. If it is required and requested for LGH to pre-pay for the customer’s freight, a charge will be added to the customer’s freight bill for this service.
10. Test certificates are available upon request.
11. Any damaged rental equipment will be evaluated. The customer will be notified via a damage report outlining the damage and cost. If no response is received within 7 days an invoice will be issued for the repairs.
12. Any lost equipment will be charged at replacement cost, and in addition, all rental fees accrued to date must be paid in full.
13. CANCELLATION FEE: A 30% of the rental or sale value of the order that had been prepared for delivery or pick-up will be the fee for canceling the order. Any material purchased for completion of an order will be invoiced in full.
14. It is our corporate policy to make every effort possible to replace or repair any inoperable equipment as quickly as possible. If determined to be the fault of the user, all cost for the replacement or repair will be invoiced to the customer.
15. Transaction taxes on rental equipment will be charged according to the rules of all governments and municipalities in your area.
16. If you feel your order is tax exempt, proof of tax exemptions are required. Please submit via fax to (708) 598-4778 in order to avoid being charged tax.
1. Rental minimum is 1 week or 7 days.
2. Monthly rates are for 28 days. The monthly rate is divided by 4 for the weekly rate for computer purposes. The weekly rate is then divided by 7 days to establish a daily rate for invoicing purposes.
3. Your invoices will show a date range that is multiplied by the daily rate to establish the charges for that particular piece of equipment.
LGH Rental “Time” Standard
1 Month = 4 weeks (28 days)
1 week = 7 days
Example Accounts Payable Process:
Established Monthly Rate = $2800.00
Divide the Monthly Rate by 4 to get the Weekly Rate = $2800 / 4 = $700.00
Divide the Weekly Rate by 7 to get the Daily Rate = $700.00 / 7 = $100 a day
Rental Period = 1 week and 5 days
Total = $700 (the week) + $500 (5 days) = $1200

The terms of this Contract are severable. If any provision hereof is deemed invalid or unenforceable by any court of competent jurisdiction, such provision will be modified to the minimum extent necessary to make such provision valid and enforceable, or if no such modification shall be possible, deleted, and in either such event, the remainder of this Contract will remain valid and in full force and effect. Time is of the essence. There are no third-party beneficiaries hereto, other than the Owner(s) of any re-rented Item(s). This Contract will be deemed to apply not only to all Item(s) identified on Page 1, but also to all other items you obtain from LGH at any time (except only as otherwise agreed by LGH).
