  • When can I expect my rental to be delivered and picked up?

    Our delivery hours are 8 AM to 8 PM.  Due to the high volume of rentals, last minute rentals will be delivered the following day so please make sure to book your reservations prior to the start of your vacation.

    Rental products need to be ready for pickup by 8 AM on the last day of your rental (Saturday Morning for a Saturday-Saturday rental; Sunday Morning for a Sunday-Sunday rental).

    If you have an early check-in, please make a note of it as part of your order and we will do our best to accommodate it. Please note that due to the busy delivery schedule, requesting an early delivery does not guarantee that we will be able to accommodate it, as our delivery schedule typically runs until 8 pm.

  • What are your delivery policies and options? Do I need to be at the property?

    We offer free delivery on some of our weekly products as follows:

    Free delivery is available for 2 or more weekly bicycle rentals to your Corolla rental home. Provide your local Corolla house address when making your reservation. 

    Free delivery is available for weekly golf cart rentals to your Corolla rental home. Provide your local Corolla house address when making your reservation. 

    If you have an early check-in, please make a note of it as part of your order and we will do our best to accommodate it. Please note that due to the busy delivery schedule, requesting an early delivery does not guarantee that we will be able to accommodate it, as our delivery schedule typically runs until 8 pm.

    We start deliveries at 8 AM. They may run as late as 8 pm. However, the majority of the time, your product will be waiting for you at your house before your 4 pm check-in time. Typically our customers are not present at delivery nor at pick-up, as being present is not necessary.

  • What if I don’t know how to ride, or have never ridden a scooter before?

    Have no fear if you have never ridden a scooter before! For many of our customers, renting from OBX Beach Toy Rentals is the first time they have ever ridden a scooter. Our instructors will give you a thorough demonstration on your scooter before your rental begins. Scooters are known for being easy to operate and handle, we will make sure you are comfortable with driving your scooter before we send you on your way to explore the Outer Banks. Our staff have trained many customers on how to operate a scooter, so please feel free to ask any and all questions as you get acquainted with your rental!

  • Why does my confirmation email show the incorrect pickup date?

    We are aware that the booking confirmation shows the incorrect pick up date for your rental. This is because the reservation system is on a 24-hour clock, making your rental in theory terminate at 11:59 PM the day prior to your departure; however, we do not pick up the rental until 8 AM the following day.  All weekly rentals, regardless of duration, run Saturday – Saturday or Sunday – Sunday. We deliver and pick up on Saturdays and Sundays only. We apologize for any confusion.
