How is the security deposit handled?
We ask for a minimum of $1,000 deposit on all rentals which is due at the time of the delivery of the slingshot. The amount of the deposit is based on a background and credit check, which is solely up to the companies discretion to decide how much security deposit will be held. You can choose if you like to give the deposit in form of cash or card, if done with a credit card in most cases we will only do a PRE-AUTHORIZATION to simply verify if the funds are available to cover the security deposit. Once the slingshot is returned damage free, in the same condition as when picked up, the pre-authorization or deposit will be released.
