EPP (Equipment Protection Plan)

Every rental contract has an additional 15% EPP charge added to protect you against accidental damage to rented equipment. It does not cover theft or abuse.  In order to not take the EPP you must have a certificate of insurance on file naming Runyon Equipment Rental Company LLC. as an additional insured.

Deliveries and pickups must be scheduled in advance; however, we will make every effort to accommodate deliveries with short notice. If you prefer, you may pick up and return rental items from our Carmel location.
