To ensure your reservation, we suggest you make a reservation online prior to your requested rental time. We will have limited walk-in hours for reservations Friday- Sunday. Online reservations can be made via our online reservation form.
Online reservations should be made at least two hours in advance of the rental pickup time. Weekend reservations need to be made by 4 pm on Friday afternoon. You can also reach us by emailing: email@example.com.
If you are not feeling well, have a fever, shortness of breath, cough, or any other COVID-19 symptoms, please stay home. Please also stay home if you have come into contact with someone who has tested positive for COVID-19 in the past 14 days. We are happy to reschedule your reservation. Customers will be required to wear masks while interacting with IBR staff. Whenever possible, we are asking that waivers be filled out in advance and emailed back to us. Once you contact IBR through our online form, you can expect an email and/or phone call response.
We are excited to be working with you again and will do our best to keep you, our staff, and our community safe.
