Equipment Rental Rates Costs are for equipment in good condition but exclude accessories. Includes the costs of damage waiver (about 10% of the rental cost), insurance, fuel, and oil. Add the cost of an equipment operator, pickup, return to yard and repairs, if necessary. Delivery and pickup within 30 miles of the rental yard are usually offered at an additional cost of one day’s rent. A rental “day” is assumed to be one 8-hour shift and begins when the equipment leaves the rental yard. A “week” is 40 hours in five consecutive days. A “month” is 176 hours in 30 consecutive days.
