FAQ

Where are you located? We are located in Abbotsford, BC, Canada, about 10 minutes from the Sumas/Huntington border crossing.
 
How do I book my rental? To make a rental booking you will need to call our store. We require a credit card number to process the transaction. At time of booking we will charge your card for the full price of the rental in Canadian Dollars. Your credit card company will be responsible for doing the exchange rate.  
 
What if I need to cancel my rental?  The last chance to cancel a Ski to Sea rental is Saturday, May 9th.  If a rental is canceled on or before Saturday, May 9th you will receive a 90% refund.  Any cancellations made after that date will be subject to the full cost of the booked rental.
 
Can you deliver my rental? Unfortunately we aren't able to deliver rentals. They can be picked up from our storefront in Abbotsford. You must have a passport or EDL in order to cross the border.
 
When can I pick up my rental? You can pick up your rental anytime starting Thursday, May 21st until Saturday, May 23rd.  Rentals must be picked up a 1/2 hour before closing, i.e. Thursday and Friday between 9am and 4:30pm and Saturday between 10am and 3:30pm. Any late pick-ups will be subject to a $25 charge for the first ½ hour and $25 for each additional ½ hour we have to stay open for you.  If you are going to be late, be sure to call us so that we can do our best to have staff available at the store.
 
What information do you need for my rental? When booking the rental, make sure that the person whose name it is under is able to pick up the boat. On arrival, they will provide us with a Visa or MasterCard and driver's license for security. They will be responsible for the rental equipment and must sign a waiver agreeing to our rental terms and conditions. 
 
When do I need to return my rental? All Rentals must be returned on Monday, May 25th before 4:30pm.  No exceptions. Any late returns will be subject to an additional day(s) rental charge that will be charged at a single day rate.
 
Boat transportation? If you are not returning your rental canoe or kayak on the same vehicle it was picked up with, it is your responsibility to make sure that it is padded and secured properly as most damage to boats occurs during transport.  Please advise us if this is the case for your rental and we will provide you with additional equipment to suit the vehicle it will be returned with.
 
Is there anything I need to know for returning my rental? Please return the boat(s) in the same clean condition it was given to you in.   If rental equipment is returned in dirty condition we will give you the option to clean it yourself here or to pay a $20 cleaning fee.   If rental equipment is returned in damaged condition, the renter will be responsible for repair costs. Shop rate will be charged ($100/hr), plus any parts and materials for repair. Replacement cost for lost, stolen or destroyed rental equipment is full retail value payable on return date.
