What will be the condition of the kayak?
PKR checks kayaks at checkout and return for damages. Our equipment policy mandates removal of any broken or damaged kayaks from the fleet. Upon your arrival the rental kayak is treated like a rental car – together we inspect every screw, strap, handle, hull, cockpit… for dinks and damages to be recorded. If you are buying a used kayak it is our protocol to announce any known damages such as cracks, dents, or non-working parts. All purchases of kayaks are “AS IS condition.”
What if I break a kayak – Is it a break it buy it policy?
No. With renting guests we developed a kayak value depreciation assessment plan. Upon checkout the renter and PKR assess the current fair market value of your kayak in the case the renter loses or damages the kayak. For example, a kayaker rents a one year used Jackson Kayak Nirvanha and we assess that we could sell that kayak at $950 at that moment. The renter ends up swimming and the Nirvanha incurs a 3″ crack in its sidewall from rock pin. Together we assess that with plastic welding and repair the new fair market valuation is $500. The renter would owe the depreciation value of $450. Additionally, to help the renter we offer future $450 trip vouchers when they experience such bad luck.
