Loss, Theft, Damages: Renter is fully responsible for the loss, theft or destruction of said property from all causes whatever and agrees to pay the owner the fair market value of the property in such event. In the event of damage and/or partial destruction from any cause whatever, renter agrees to pay to the owner a reasonable cost of repair to said property. The renter acknowledges that Rent CARES LLC is permitted to charge the account (PayPal, debit, or credit card) provided by the renter for any lost, damaged or non-returned equipment.

Instructions for using equipment: By renting the equipment you agree to familiarize yourself with how to use and/or properly install the equipment.  Manufacturer’s instruction manuals are provided (free upon request) with all rental equipment. You acknowledge that Rent CARES LLC is not responsible for your failure to abide by recommendations or instructions in said manuals.

Late and Default Fees: There is a non-refundable and non-negotiable late fee of $7.00 per CARES, per day, beginning on the eight day after your return date, up to a maximum of $49.00 (7 days at $7.00 per day).

Failure to return the CARES harness(es) by the 16th day after your return date will be treated as theft and breach of contract, resulting in an additional fee of $50.00 for each harness, and an offense/police report filed in Renter’s home state and in California. In situations of default, Rent CARES, LLC reserves the right to bring actions as permitted by applicable law, including seeking criminal prosecution, as well as filing civil suit seeking damages and reimbursement of any related legal costs.

Default fee is only refundable once the CARES harness is returned within five days of being charged the default fee.

    1. Hi Jennifer,

      According to the company’s website, there is no minimum age limit for using CARES. It is designed for use only by children who weight 22-44 lbs and whose height is 40 inches or less and are capable of sitting upright alone. Nothing is 100% safe.

      The harness should be sent to us within 7 business days from the date of your return. I recommend you use USPS Priority Mail as it takes 2-3 days to get to me and is a lot cheaper.

      We charge a late fee of $11.95 per day, per CARES starting on the 8th day (max $83.65). It is considered “default/stolen” on the 16th day and this will incur more charges.

  12. Hi, we are traveling early sunday morning, 8/16. Is it too late to order these so they arrive saturday?

  13. I’m not understanding what “partially booked” means, so I’ll just ask; I need one by the 6th, & its a one-way flight, so I would be returning 2-3 days after our arrival. Is that possible?

    1. Hi Porsha, regular shipping takes 2-3 business days, this is not guaranteed. Express shipping takes 1-2 business days, guaranteed.

  15. Hello, I live California n I am traveling out of the country OK in March 8 n returning 3/23 ,how much would it cost?

    1. $18.40 is the grand total.

      $11.95 for 1-15 days
      $0.45 for additional day
      $6.00 for shipping to you

      Please use the calendar to book.

  16. I read a response where you stated the harness is for use with children up to 40 pounds. My grandson now weighs 43, and we won’t be traveling until April. The airlines says a harness is needed for children up to 44 pounds. If yours only goes up to 40 pounds, and they require one for up to 44 pounds, are there other sizes or alternatives available for children over your 40 pound limit?

    1. Hi Dar,

      This was my response: According to the company’s website, there is no minimum age limit for using CARES. It is designed for use only by children who weight 22-44 lbs and whose height is 40 inches or less and are capable of sitting upright alone.

      Cares harness currently has 2 sizes, one is the one I carry and the other is for special needs.

  17. Hi, I placed an order earlier this evening however I don’t see a confirmation email. I’m just wondering if the payment went through. You can reach me via email. Thank you.


  18. Hi! What an awesome idea! We are flying to Europe. Can I rent CARES and go outside the United States?

  19. Hello, I’m going on a trip on June 17 until July 1st. I’m looking 2 get two Cares Harnesses and would like to know if the grand total includes the $6.00 shipping how much does it cost us when it’s time to ship back? Do we have to pack it in our own packing or is that provided by you?

  20. I reserved a cares harness for my 3 year old. We leave out on Monday May 30th.

    Can you e-mail me or let me know here if it was sent out yet?



    1. Hi Loretta, this went out on the 20th. You should have received an email with the tracking info. I will resend it right now.

  21. I am traveling June 17 – July 7. Is it too late to rent one? If not, how much for one harness? Thanks!

  22. Hello, I placed an order and I have not received the email confirmation. It is not in the spam or junk folder.

  23. How does shipping work? If I fly out on the 6th of Dec when would I receive the harness? When I get back I just ship it back to you? How does the cost work for that? My dates are Dec 6th to Dec 13th

  24. Hi,
    I’d like to rent a harness for Jan. 11th-21st, but I don’t understand how I’m supposed to return it to you? Is the return shipping included in the price?
