Understanding Rates

It’s easy to get lulled by a low first dollar daily rental price.  But there can be a lot more to rental than just the daily rental price.  At NTR we have worked hard to add a value proposition to our rentals that you just won’t find at other rental businesses.  

Weekend Rate Special

At Northside Tool Rental, we charge a 1 day rate for weekend rentals on our entire stock of inventory. This is available every weekend on everything we carry. Here’s how it works:

  • Pick up after 3 pm Friday
  • Return before 9 am Monday
  • Unlimited use on small equipment
  • 8 hour use on metered items

It’s that simple! At NTR, you have the equipment all weekend to do the work when it is convenient for you. No more stopping your work to rush your rental equipment back. You work at your pace over the entire weekend!

Weather Protection (weekly rentals or longer)

Don’t let unforeseen weather conditions run up your rental bill! At Northside Tool Rental, you are protected from inclement weather on your rentals of 1 week or longer. Here’s how it works:

If you encounter inclement weather during your rental of outdoor equipment, we will extend your rental by 1 day per week of rental at no additional charge. For example, if you rent a Bobcat for a week, and it rains, you can extend your rental to an 8th day to get your work done at no additional charge. If you rent for a month, you have 4 additional weather days to use if needed.

  • 1 Additional day per week’s rental of outdoor equipment
  • Up to 4 days per 4 week billing cycle
  • “Unused” additional days in any 4 week cycle do not carry forward
  • Standard Hour Meter Limits apply based on paid rental time
  • This program extends the rental period and does not offer a credit against rental fees
No Obligation Reservations

Call as far in advance as you would like and we’ll reserve your piece of equipment for the exact date and time you need it.  We require no pre-payment and charge no cancellation fee.  Just give us a call, tell us your name, and that’s it.  If you decide you don’t need it, just let us know.  It’s that simple.  Believe it or not, some of our biggest competitors STILL don’t take reservations!

Return to Any Location

Northside Tool Rental allows you to return any piece of rental equipment to any of our locations, regardless which location you rented from. We know our contractor customers are on the go and all over town. Often it’s not convenient to make it back to the location from which your rental originated. At NTR, we understand your needs and are here to make your rental experience as easy as possible. That’s why we’re the only rental company in Atlanta that accepts returns of our rental equipment at any branch, regardless of where the rental originated, at no charge to you.

Rental Protection Program

The Rental Protection Program is meant to limit customers’ financial responsibility for unexpected loss or damage to rental equipment while in their possession.  Rental Protection is not insurance. Commercial customers may elect to be excluded from RPP, provided they present NTR with proof of insurance protection for rental equipment and NTR is listed as Loss Payee.  In consideration for the additional (14%) Rental Protection Program fees paid by the customer, NTR will reduce the damage or loss charges (should they occur) as follows:

Equipment Damages (Equipment is considered damaged if it is returned in a materially different condition than when it was rented less normal wear and tear)

  • Damages less than $250 are covered 100% by the NTR Rental Protection Program
    • Example – Qualifying Damage charges billed at $185.00 Customer is exempt from additional charges. Rental Protection Program pays for the $ 185.00 charges.
  • Damages more than $250 are covered up to a maximum of 50% of the charges.
    • Example – Qualifying Damage charges billed at $2,250.00 Customer is exempt from the first $250, HOWEVER is responsible for 50% of the remaining balance.
      • $2,250 less $250= $ 2,000 remaining balance. Customer is responsible for 50% of remaining balance.  In this case $1,000.00

  • Equipment stored in NON-SECURE place – Customer responsibility / 90% of the current replacement cost


Customers Responsibility to Report Theft

  • In all cases of theft, RPP coverage requires Customer to report the theft within 24 hours to NTR along with the appropriate police jurisdiction. A copy of the police report must be presented to NTR within (10) days to validate the event. All settlements for theft and vandalism charges must be paid within 10 days of the event.


Rental Purchase Option 

Northside Tool Rental is proud to offer a Rental Purchase Option on each rental contract. This program is designed to allow you the Customer to apply a certain percentage of the rental fees paid towards the purchase price of the equipment you have rented. We have found that often a customer may wish to purchase an item at the end of the rental period. This program will allow for a certain percentage of the rental fees to be applied towards the purchase price.

Rental inventory will carry a purchase price based upon a pre-determined depreciation schedule. Your rental coordinator can give you the current sale price on any item you rent. A percentage of rental fees paid over the most recent 3 months may be applied against the purchase price as follows:

Tier I         Cash Customers                  20%

Tier II        VIP Program Members          30%

Tier III      Charge Account Customers   40%
