Renting from SwingGuard
We operate a rate-of-turn indicator rent-maintenance service for towboats and ships. Our rent-maintenance agreements are strictly verbal. We have no written contracts with anyone. The units are not for sale.

Your only cost is the monthly rental charge. If you try the unit for 30 days and decide to keep it, you will be billed from the date you started using it. If, on the other hand, you decide you don’t want it, return it within 30 days and owe us nothing for the trial period.

If you call us for an exchange, we will get it on the way to you on the next UPS pick-up. We have daily UPS service except for weekends and holidays. We ship to you prepaid and ask that you ship to us prepaid.

We find UPS to be, by far, the best way to ship from the standpoint of careful handling and shipping rates. Truck lines and postal service are not suitable for this instrument.

This is a nationwide service, with our instruments being used throughout the inland waterways. They are used on the Mississippi River and its tributaries, the intracoastal canal system, the Columbia River and its tributaries, and we are gaining wider use in ocean-going and excursion vessels.

We build the units ourselves, including the gyro, and have been in business since 1964. All maintenance is done here at our shop and is done by exchange only.

Any customer is free to cancel the service at any time for any reason with no obligation other than to return the unit to us.

We bill once a month for the previous month. An instruction sheet will be enclosed with the unit.

We sincerely hope we will be able to serve you and will do everything in our power to keep you and your people happy with our service.
