The rental starts the day it is shipped to you and ends the day it is received back; all days are counted for the rental, including days while shipping, weekends and holidays. When we receive it back, the rental deposit is refunded to you minus the rental fee for each day (shown in table above). Please allow one week after meter is returned for the refund to show on your credit card.
You can use the meter as long as you like, there is no minimum or maximum number of days for the rental. If you keep this meter until the total rental fees equals your deposit, then there are no more fees due and no refund, and you own the meter and there is no need to return it. Rental fees are therefore 100% applied to purchase for the deposit amount if you decide to keep the rental meter, with a 1-year warranty from the date you rented it.
