How does shipping work?
We ship pods all over the lower 48 states. Our shipping partner is FedEx and they can ship practically anywhere; businesses, places of work, hotels, Airbnb's, National Parks, FedEx stores (for hold) and so on. if you're thinking about having an Xscape Pod shipped to you here is how it works. When selecting your dates you'll only want to select the days you'll need the gear. We ship all pods to arrive one business day before your set to start your camping adventure. After you've selected your dates and placed your pod into the shopping cart you will select round trip or one-way shipping during checkout. Then enter the address of the destination you wish to have your pod shipped. Please choose an address that will have someone available to accept the package. We don't require signature but it's always best when there is a concierge, doorman, a family member, or even you there to receive the gear. Once booked you'll receive a series of emails from Xscape Pod, one email will include your FedEx tracking number so you can track your package once it's in route. Your pod will arrive in a cardboard box. Please save the box and the return shipping label located inside the box so you can ship back when you're done. After camping, place the gear back into the box, affix the provided return shipping label to the box and return to any FedEx store no more than one business day after your booking ends. That it, it's that simple.
Yes, we do that, no problem. It's common for our customers to pickup in Portland and ship back from another destination like Seattle or San Francisco. If you're planning on one-way shipping please enter the destination you would like us to ship to, or return from and then checkout. During checkout, please mention any special shipping instructions in the "special requests" field and we will follow up with a call or email if we have any questions.
Is the equipment cleaned between trips?
Yes, all equipment is inspected by hand, cleaned, and repacked between each trip. Special attention is paid to cookware and sleeping bags. All mess kits and utensils are run through a dishwasher, and sleeping bags are sanitized.
What if I lose a piece of equipment during my trip?
Accidental minor damage or loss of any items under $10 will not be charged to the customer's card in most cases. We understand that things happen. In the event that major items are lost or damaged Xscape Pod will resolve with customer on a situational basis.
I really liked the equipment, can I buy directly from Xscape Pod?
Sure, if you find you really like a piece of equipment while on your adventure, just keep it. The price for each piece of equipment is listed under each Pod lid. As equipment “seasons” the price is lowered. Since all of our gear is excellent quality some great deals can be found as the gear goes through its natural life cycle.
Are longer term leases possible?
Sure. Want to rent gear for multiple weeks, or the entire summer, no problem. Call us at 971-599-6025 to discuss long-term lease options.
