About Geophysical Equipment Rental LLC:
Geophysical Equipment Rental LLC, working in conjunction with K.D. Jones Instrument Corporation, is a team dedicated to providing the best customer experience for those that rent or buy geophysical equipment. With a staff possessing over 35 years of field experience, contact us and we can assist you with picking the right equipment for your application and get it to you when you need it!
All equipment is field tested when it comes back from a rental and before it is shipped back out to ensure a quality experience for our customers. In other words, each instrument is tested twice for each rental. In the event that equipment breaks in the field, our staff carries their work phones seven days a week, twenty-four hours a day. Give us a call or contact us through email and we will do our best to get you back up and running in a timely fashion.
Do you see a piece of equipment that you often rent that you are wishing to purchase? We can quote prices for new equipment from many manufacturers (e.g. AGI, Geometrics, Geonics, and Geostuff). Many times there are perks when purchasing through us such as free Ground shipping. Inquire with us before contacting other vendors!
New Customers Information:
Before renting for the first time, all new customers must contact their insurance agent and have them send a certificate of insurance stating their coverage for rentals. This is often referred to as an Inland Marine Policy. In addition, Geophysical Equipment Rental LLC and K. D. Jones Instrument Corp must be listed as “Additional Insured” and the “Loss Payee.” Please send these documents to Rent@GeophysicalEquipmentRental.com. While we wait to confirm a renter has acceptable insurance coverage, one can continue the rental process by filling out the contact information found on the Request Geophysical Equipment page.

- Rental charges begin the day the rental property is shipped and end the day (inclusive) when the rental property is received at our office in good working condition. Renter agrees not to retain rental property past the predetermined date. In addition, the Renter agrees

- that the cost of any damage, loss, or theft, may be charged to Renter’s credit card.
- to authorize Geophysical Equipment Rental LLC and/or K. D. Jones Instrument Corp to process Renter’s credit card(s) on file for any charges under these terms and conditions. If a credit card was not required or determined to be invalid, Renter agrees to pay for charges with a check or cash.

- All Prices are F.O.B. Mequon, WI. Rental property must be returned to the physical address, 13129 Green Bay Rd, Mequon, WI 53097. No weekend or holiday deliveries. This avoids rental property being left outdoors, unsecured, and potentially stolen.
- As a courtesy, we do not charge rent if the rental property is shipped on a Friday and in-transit with FedEx or UPS over Saturday, Sunday, and/or an approved holiday (only valid for rentals less than a month). In its sole and absolute discretion, Geophysical Equipment Rental LLC and/or K. D. Jones Instrument Corp reserve the right not to extend this courtesy.

Jones Instrument Corp will not be refunded or challenged on behalf of the Renter. In other words, if a shipping company fails to perform as expected and Renter wishes to recover shipping costs, the Renter has the ability to challenge shipping costs only when shipping costs are paid directly by the Renter to the shipper (e.g. a Renter’s shipping account or credit card). Based on our experience, the renter is being given notice that any rental property mailed or shipped in an envelope has a greater chance of being lost or damaged by the shipping company.

Jones Instrument Corp may repossess rental property at any time thereafter at Renter’s expense. Furthermore, Geophysical Equipment Rental LLC and/or K. D.

Jones Instrument Corp , or civil authorities responsible for their actions to repossess rental property. Geophysical Equipment Rental LLC and/or K. D. Jones Instrument Corp may take any reasonable steps deemed necessary to recover rental property (e.g., circulating theft notices, enter any location or facility to recover rental property, cause warrants of Renter, agents, partners, or employees, and/or other steps that are deemed necessary).
- Geophysical Equipment Rental LLC and/or K. D. Jones Instrument Corp shall not be liable for any special, incidental, or consequential damages, including but not limited to labor, loss of use, loss of damage to personal or real property, inconvenience, or loss of income.

Jones Instrument Corp’s liability for any losses or damages shall be limited to the lesser amount of the actual rental charges of the rental property or one months rental charges. This is the Renter’s sole and exclusive remedy.
- Renter assumes all risks of loss and damage to the rental property and all liability for any injury to any person or property caused by the operation, handling or transportation of the rental property during the rental period. Renter agrees to indemnify, defend, and hold harmless Geophysical Equipment Rental LLC, K. D. Jones Instrument Corp, and all shareholders, directors, officers, employees, agents and manufacturers from and against any and all claims, liabilities, costs (including legal fees), or actions of any nature whatsoever arising out of or related to Renter’s use or operation of the rental property, regardless of fault, including injuries or death to persons or damage to property of any person or entity, including the Renter. This obligation of renter shall survive the return of the rental property and termination of agreement.
- While a Renter may request preconfigured instrumentation (e.g. land streamer geophone spacing, odometer calibration, or data logger settings), the responsibility remains with the Renter for the setup, configuration, and use of the rental property.
- In its sole and absolute discretion, Geophysical Equipment Rental LLC and/or K. D. Jones Instrument Corp reserve the right to refuse to rent rental property to any person or group for any reason.
