Our team wears masks and practices social distancing for your protection.
What is the start date / time and the end date / time of my reservation?
The Start date of your reservation that you select at checkout is the day you’d like your item delivered to your door (home, hotel, Airbnb, VRBO, ect). The time that you select on this day is the START of the 2 hour delivery window in which your item will be delivered on that day.

The time that you select on this day is the START of the 2 hour pick up window in which your item will be picked up on that day.

If you need an item delivered or picked up by a certain time, please select 2 hours prior to this. (i.e. If you need an item delivered by noon, select 10:00am on your Start date for delivery between 10am-12pm).
Additionally, we can provide an ETA text the day of delivery and pick up so you can know approximately what time our driver will be delivering/picking up within the 2 hour delivery/pick up window. There is a spot to select this at checkout.

Can I have my item delivered to the airport?
Yes! Please select the appropriate delivery fee for the airport you are flying into and enter your flight itinerary and rental car company into the Itinerary Section of the reservation details (i.e. Southwest flight arriving to SFO on 4/6 @ 9:20 am; Enterprise pick up @ 10am; United flight departing SFO on 4/10 @ 1:45pm). This helps our delivery driver to arrive at the appropriate time. Additionally, many times we will meet you at the car rental location (if you are renting a car) as this seems to be the easiest spot to deliver your items quickly to you and even load into your rental car if it is ready.
If I would like to pick-up my item, where are you located?
Our HQ is located in Sacramento, CA off of Highway 50. After a reservation is made, we will coordinate a pick-up time and an email will be sent with the pick-up address and a confirmation number. *Please note, at this time self pick-up is only available for the Sacramento, the Los Angeles, and the Northeastern New Jersey Areas.
When are you open for pick-ups?
We can schedule a time Monday thru Sunday between 8am and 8pm.
How quickly can we rent an item and have it delivered?
We can offer same day rental if the item is available! There is a $125 additional delivery charge for same day rentals. Please contact us regarding same day rentals.
My baby loves this rental item. Can I extend my rental period?
Yes! We check-in with our customers via email 2-5 days before the end of their rental term to see how the item(s) are working for their family. You are able to extend your rental term (i.e. 1 more month, day, etc.) at this time. We also highly encourage you to let us know sooner via email if you are able to.
What if my baby does not like an item? Can we return it early and get a refund?
Unfortunately, we do not issue refunds at this time. When an item is paid for it is reserved for your family for the rental term and we are unable to serve another family. We understand that all babies are different and may not take to a particular item. This is another reason why we feel like renting an item is a good idea. You have the ability to try different options.
What is your Cancellation/Refund Policy?
You may cancel your reservation up to 3 days before your scheduled delivery date to avoid any charges. You may cancel your reservation up to 2 days before your scheduled delivery date but you will be charged 50% of your reservation total. You may cancel your reservation the day before or day of your scheduled delivery date but you will be charged 100% of your reservation total.
Additionally, for Slumberpod rentals which are shipped from our Sacramento HQ, we can not offer a refund after the item has been shipped which is usually 8-5 days prior to the Start date of your reservation.
Exception: If you cancel your reservation for a rental that occurs during the period that includes the week before Christmas/Christmas, the week after Christmas, or within the Thanksgiving week/end, you will be charged 100% of your reservation total.
Please remember that rents4baby.com has held the rental equipment especially for you and in cases of cancellations we have not had the opportunity to rent them out to another family. There will be no refunds after the items are delivered or picked up.
What happens if I forget to return part of my rental or loose it? (i.e. sheet, swaddle)
You will be charged retail value for a replacement if you are unable to locate it.
What happens if I damage my item or there is more than normal wear and tear?
We only offer high-quality items to rent and if there is damage we are unable to serve another family. For any damaged item, you will be charged the retail value to cover the cost of replacement.
