Do you rent PLB's?
No.  We evaluated whether or not to offer a PLB rental program and decided not to for the following reasons:

  1. The purchase price of these units has come down to the point where renting is rarely the best alternative financially. If you end up renting more than one time or for an extended period of time, you will end up having paid a substantial portion of the purchase price of a brand new unit.
  2. Most people that rent a PLB end up purchasing a unit within a few months. After determining how important and useful a PLB can be, people tend to want their own.
  3. Owning your own unit gives you greater piece of mind. With a rental unit, you have no idea of the PLB's history. Has it been dropped or damaged? Has the unit ever been inadvertently turned on or frequently tested resulting in battery drain?
  4. With you own unit, you are the registered owner, not the rental company. This eliminates one step in the event of an actual emergency. Instead of contacting the rental company, Search and Rescue
  5. (SAR) can work directly with the contacts you have personally specified to assist in any rescue.
