Many of the properties that we represent have wireless high-speed Internet service or Wifi. These properties use Comcast or Century Link as their service provider. We make every effort to ensure that the Internet is functioning properly prior to your arrival, however we make no representations or guarantees that the Internet will work all of the time. If the Internet is not working properly, you can contact our office during normal business hours and we will contact Comcast or Century Link to see if they are having a problem with their service. If the Internet service is down this is NOT considered an emergency, we will only call the service provider during normal business hours. If there is a technical problem that cannot be solved, RentVail will not be responsible for any Internet service provider or any other technical problem. If RentVail dispatched a technician and the problem is due to the renters own equipment/service provider or software, RentVail, will charge the renter in full for all expenses related to the service call. Furthermore, Rentvail will not refund you any money if there is any type of problem with the Internet service.
