Rental Policy Overview

the key things you'll want to know

We'll send you a formal BEACH BAGS Rental Agreement for review and signature after you book your reservation. Here's a quick review of the basics.


Captain's Responsibilities

As Captain of your boat you acknowledge ultimate responsibility, under the law, for all aspects of operation including the safe navigation of the ship, anchoring, as well as training and actions of your crew.

Knowledge of houseboating, and the weather patterns on Lake Powell are  essential for successfully using any anchoring system.

Understanding correct anchor placement and installation is critical for your safety and houseboating enjoyment. A signature of acceptance verifying you have viewed and understand the following materials, and have properly trained your crew, is required by all Captains.
What's included

Each Beach Bags System rental includes:

  • Multiple Beach Beach Bag Anchors & Anchoring Accessories
  • Tightrope (if rented separetly)
  • Portable Pump System (gas pump, fill hose, intake hose)
  • Beach Bags Use Training (printed guides and instructional videos)

Rental pick-up/delivery process

Our goal is to send you off with as much in-person information as you desire about how your System works and how it was conceived, designed and developed. If you want to go beyond the basics, it's no problem, just ask away. If, however, you find yourself short on time during the pick-up/delivery process, rest assured we've got you covered there too - all of our instructional materials are available on-line. We'll also start sending them to you about 30-45 days prior to your departure.

Tank's full – no need to refuel 

Your portable, gas-powered pump will arrive with a full tank of fuel. There is no need to refuel it prior to return.

return time

Anchor Systems must be returned by 5:30 pm on date specified. We'll meet you at the same place we delivered your rental System.

Damage security deposit

We require a damage deposit of $500 which is due when we charge your credit card for the System rental (at least 30 prior to your departure). This deposit is refunded providing you return the gear complete and undamaged (other than normal wear). 

Cancellation policy

We know first-hand that situations may arise that delay, postpone or cancel a well planned trip. Therefore, we offer a full refund if your System rental is canceled at least 30 days prior to your delivery/pick-up date. For date changes, or cancellations within 14 days of rental, we'll need to charge you in-full, but we're happy to re-schedule to new rental dates, subject to equipment availability.
