It is the daily hire rate rounded up to the nearest ten. So if the daily hire rate is $95, the deposit would be $100 and the total amount payable will be $195. The full deposit is refundable when you bring the equipment back in good working condition. Furthermore, if you have brought the equipment back within 4 hours and a 4-hour rate is available, you will only be charged the 4-hour rate. Deposits are refunded using the same method by which payment was made. So if you paid the hire rate and deposit on a credit card, you will need to bring the same credit card back to be issued the refund.
