Equipment Rental Guidelines – 24 Hour Notice Required for Reservations

May 24, 2018

Dear Owners,

To accommodate our owners, contractors and vendors with equipment rentals, we ask that you provide us with a minimum of 24 hours’ notice and follow the rental guidelines below:

1. Provide a minimum of 24 hours’ notice

Call or email Catherine at catherine@deweesislandsc.com or 843.568.3992 at least 24 hours in advance. Please provide the date, time and equipment needed.

2. Proof of Insurance

All contractors must provide a Certificate of Liability Insurance before handling any POA equipment, including our pick-up truck. Make sure your contractor provides proof of insurance to Catherine BEFORE arriving to the island/borrowing the equipment.

3. Provide Instructions and Transportation for your Contractor  

It is the owner’s responsibility to accompany their guests and/or contractors on the island. We ask you meet your contractor at the dock to greet him or her and provide them with transportation to Public Works to pick up the keys for the equipment. If you are unfortunately not on the island the day of the scheduled work, please ensure you, at minimum, provide them with a golf cart for transportation and instructions for navigating Dewees Island.

4. Key Pickup and Drop Off

Keys are to be picked up and dropped off in the Administrative Offices at Public Works.

5. Dispose Old Construction Material, Appliances, etc. Off Island. 

Due to limited resources, we cannot permit contractors to dispose their materials in our receptacle containers; they must take their materials with them. For example, if a homeowner hires a contractor to install new carpet, it is homeowner’s responsibility to inform the contractor they must take the old carpet OFF island with them. If we discover a homeowner’s contractor is abusing our receptacle containers, the homeowner can be subject to a disposal fee. 

6. Be Sure to Call the Ferry in Advance Before Departing

As always, a reservation is required when departing the island. Please make sure your contractors are informed of the “on-call” system and for him or her to call at least 10 minutes before the hour when planning to depart. 

Equipment Rentals are available Monday – Friday during normal POA business hours (7:30am – 3:30pm).

If you or your contractor needs access to our equipment after hours, the POA must be notified of the scope of work in advance.

No Construction on Sundays or holidays.
