Requirements to Rent
Effective December 1, 2017 Rentacomputer.com no longer offers personal rentals.
All of our rental orders go through a strict underwriting process to ensure the order is legitimate and authorized. These policies help us keep our services as responsibly priced as possible. In general, the items our underwriting department are looking for are:
- Is the person requesting the equipment who they say they are?
Sadly, many people are not who they claim to be. We receive hundreds of requests for equipment from people whose sole intention is to steal the equipment. As a proud member of the International Technology Rental Association we work hard with all technology rental companies to reduce theft and fraud.
- Is the company or person requesting the equipment financially stable?
Some times companies or people want to rent equipment because they cannot afford to buy it. This is not the type of rental need we want to fill. We are a service provider to those who have a short term need; if a company needs to purchase equipment but cannot afford it, they can check into a lease-purchase through one of our partner financial institutes. It would be fiscally irresponsible of us to recommend renting equipment long-term.
- Is the person requesting the equipment authorized to do so?
A surprising number of people try to rent equipment through their company or on their company credit card without authorization to do so. Unfortunately, just because someone works for a company doesn't mean they can make financial decisions for that company. We will work with each company's accounting, accounts payable, or management team as necessary to ensure that orders are only placed by authorized personnel.
Every rental is different, so there is no definitive list of requirements we have for a business rental. However, here are general guidelines that we follow. If you are worried about our requirements, please feel free to reach out to us and we can discuss your particular needs.
- No Virtual Offices
- A Minimum of 2 years of established business history
- An easily identifiable online presence
- A non-residential billing or shipping address
- Email communication through a registered company domain
- A true short-term need
