Reading about the Program please select the the type of Power Station you are looking for at the bottom of this page.
the rental product page there will be a short description including device compatibility,
deposit amount, and daily rental fees for each power station.
deposit is collected at checkout and is equal to the price of the power station the
daily rental rates equal to 2% of the purchase price will be taken from the deposit upon the safe and undamaged return
of the rental equipment, the deposit can also be used to purchase the gear you
rent if you like it!
daily rental fees will be charged for the days the customer has the gear, using
the FedEx tracking numbers to verify the date delivered to the customer and the
date the gear is dropped to an authorized FedEx center for return using the
prepaid label included with every rental order (there will be an addition $20 fee taken from the deposit if you call FedEx to pick up the package insead of dropping it off to an authorized FedEx center).
round trip Ground shipping is $20 for each power station, solar panels will be an additional $20 each. If you decide to keep
the gear there is no refund on the return shipping. Due to Shipping Regulations our Rental Gear must travel via ground transportation. Sorry we can not overnight outside of the state of Texas.Refunds of deposits are processed once per week by TBG and the average time for
the refund to be released is 2-3 weeks after the gear is returned.
PLEASE NOTE (AKA- "THE RED NOTE"):
If you are renting you are acknowledging and accepting
that the refund may take up to 3 weeks AFTER the gear is received at our warehouse.
If you call or e-mail prior to the 3 weeks have passed asking where your refund is the reply will be a simple link back
to this page with a note to read the red note. I beg you to please appreciate I am a one man operation with an accountant that works part time, if this time frame is not agreeable please save you and I the frustration and consider a purchase instead of a rental.
12v direct connect CPAP’s (Note this includes All ResMEd systems, even the 12v S8) will require an Inverter to use the TBG CPAP C-222 this option will be an additional $50 deposit and $1 per day rental fee.
determine if your system’s DC voltage requirements please check the label on “Power
Supply” (aka “brick”) of the power cord, if there is not a brick your system is NOT DC compatible and will require the inverter.
The number after “DC output” is the DC voltage your system uses as long as it is
within the range of 10-14 volts (EXCEPTION 12v ResMed S8 must use C-222 with Inverter) you will be able to use the TBG CPAP C-150 or C-222 without the inverter.
