To get started, please fill out the rental agreement here. Prior to gear pick-up, you must have filled out the rental agreement. Then call (352) 294-1040 to reserve some gear! Our prices are available on the gear rental page.

Updated Policies

Please carefully read over the procedures in our rental agreement. You must also reserve a time for dropping off your gear. You are responsible for returning gear to the supervision of a CORE associate, and can not leave your gear outside of the building. You will be responsible for damages to gear.

Updated Cleaning Procedures

CORE has new cleaning procedures for gear to help protect our community! We’ll be cleaning gear more frequently and allowing gear to rest for 72 hours between rental periods. The CDC has recommended this down time to prevent the spread of communicable diseases.

Gear Pick-up/Drop-off

Once you have reserved a time slot, you can access the CORE gear rental by pulling up to the roundabout at the CORE building. The entrance is marked with an entrance sign, please follow the signs to the gear staging area. A CORE associate will assist you upon your arrival.
