Employee Safety and Prevention

*SAFETY NOTICE: To protect both you and our staff, we kindly ask all customers to please wear a protective mask when interacting with our staff and to maintain proper social distancing (until further notice).

*PRODUCT NOTE: If a customer feels led to disinfect the Ocean Atlantic Rentals gear during the rental period, we encourage you to please use a non-bleach disinfectant. Over time, the use of bleach based disinfectants can damage the structural integrity of our gear and will affect the coloring of certain rental items.

At Ocean Atlantic Rentals, we take your health and safety very seriously. Since 1979 our goal has been to provide the highest quality rental gear for your OBX vacation. We can all have peace of mind in knowing any of our equipment you rent from us has been handled properly, cleaned and disinfected between rental use.

As per the CDC.gov website, we repeatedly clean and disinfect all of our rental equipment.  We train staff to clean and disinfect equipment after each return to our stores; we also clean our counter areas and common store areas in our stores and delivery vehicles.

Additionally, we will operate our stores and locations in compliance with the COVID-19 Suggested Guidelines for Outdoor Recreation Business in Dare, Currituck, and Hyde Counties in North Carolina. 

  • Inside our store locations, staff must wear a mask and have clean hands & workspace when serving our customers (until further notice).
  • Customers may request curbside pickup at our stores, via telephone, at any time. We practice “no contact” delivery service to your vacation address and email when deliveries are being made.

Our preferred CDC approved disinfectant is Simple Green d PRO 3 PLUS™.  It is diluted with water, as per the instructions. Some items will be disinfected with diluted bleach spray.  All baby items are rinsed with fresh water or non-toxic products after disinfectant use.

Here are just a few of the steps our employees are implementing across our locations:

Employee Safety and Prevention:

Many of the things we do to help prevent colds and the flu can help protect against other respiratory viruses, including COVID-19:

  • Wash your hands often with soap and warm water for at least 20 seconds.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth.
  • Clean things that are frequently touched (like doorknobs and countertops) with household cleaning spray or wipes.
  • Cover your mouth when you cough or sneeze. Use a tissue or your inner elbow, not your hands.
  • Stay home if you are sick and avoid close contact with others.
  • Contact your manager or supervisory with any questions, immediately.
  • Maintain social distancing (6 ft) guidelines when interacting with customers or staff.
  • Inside our stores, staff must wear a mask and have clean hands & workspace when serving our customers (until further notice).
  • Customers may request curbside pickup at our stores, via telephone, at any time. We practice “no contact” delivery service to your vacation address.

You can rest assured knowing any of our equipment you rent from Ocean Atlantic Rentals has been handled properly, cleaned and disinfected between rental use providing you with peace of mind & great times during your OBX vacation.
