August 14, 2016

When living and boating in the Raleigh area, there are many choices of where to rent a jet ski. These options include Jordan Lake, Falls Lake, or heading to the beach. But, no matter where a jet ski can be rented, how can you tell it is a good company to rent from? Upon first talking to a company, there are questions to ask about their company and products. Motor-Boatin regularly receives phone calls about our jet skis and pontoon boats and we are happy to answer any questions! But, also inspect the jet skis upon arrival at their site. If it seems a little fishy, then they aren’t the right company to rent from. 4 questions everyone should ask before choosing to jet ski from a jet ski and boat rental company are:
  1. What Insurance Coverage is Included? Motor-Boatin can only rent to individuals over the age of 26 because we offer full liability insurance when renting a boat or jet ski at Falls Lake.
  2. How Old Are the Jet Skis? Rust and corrosion on jet skis are a sign that they are older and less reliable. All jet skis should look new or remain in excellent condition; if they look older or warn down, this is not a great rental.
  3. Has the Jet Ski Been Maintained? Make sure there are no water leaks or loose wires first and foremost. Be sure the head isn’t burnt out of the jet ski. Then, discuss with the owner pump and impeller blades as well as make ask about damage to the hull of the jet ski.
  4. How to Operate the Jet Ski? A jet ski rental company should teach on how to use their specific jet skis including starting and stopping the vehicle and what to do in case of an emergency.
