Rentals are for those who are not trained by BAWT.
Making a Reservation:
To make a reservation, download the reservation form, an Excel worksheet.
To rent gear from the Oakland gear library:
To rent gear from the Milpitas gear library:
Complete the form and rename the file with your last name, date and “rental.” Here is an example: Smith 04-20 rental.xls.
Email the equipment rental request form to Gear@bawt.org and include the same information in the subject line of your message. We will usually be able to confirm your request within 48 hours. While we do have a growing supply of equipment, the earlier you get in your gear request form, the better. This is especially true in our busiest months — May through September — where there is a very limited supply of gear we can make available for rentals.
All rental fees are due at time of rental. We accept cash, check, Visa, Mastercard, and Discover. The charge is based on the number of nights the gear checked out.
