The Agreed Rental Period is an amount of time that you select to rent a product from us at a given rate. Once this period has elapsed, you may choose to continue renting the product, or return it. Also, at this time (as at any time) you may opt to purchase (buyout) the product from us.
No, each rental is a hire agreement. Although agreements can have a set rental period, there is no guarantee of sale at the end of the agreement, nor is there any buyout price determined prior to entering into the agreement. Under this agreement you may return the goods without penalty or ask for a buyout price at any time, which you may choose to pay at your discretion.
Yes, you may ask for a buyout price at any time. The price provided by us will reflect the value of the product to Rentsmarte Rentals.
