What if you drop your Class?
ComputerBookRental.Com offers a no questions asked 100% refund minus shipping costs if you return your book within the first 15 days of your rental period. If you need to return a book after the first 15 days, but before 30 days, they offer a 50% refund minus shipping costs.
How long will it take for your books to arrive?
It depends on the shipping method you select. After a 24-48 hour processing period (excluding weekends and major holidays), it typically takes 7-14 business days for standard shipping, 5 to 8 business days for expedited, and 2-3 business days for 2-3 day shipping. Shipping times may vary based on weather, delivery routes, and other factors out of their control. If your book has not arrived by the expected arrival date, contact them immediately and they’ll work closely with you.
Will the books come directly from CampusBookRentals.com?
It depends. Some textbooks are shipped directly from one of their suppliers to your door, so they won’t be branded with the CampusBookRentals.com logo. Book suppliers may leave a receipt or return labels inside the books you receive; however, these should be disregarded as they have nothing to do with your rental price or your method of returning the books. Your line of customer support will always be with CampusBookRentals.com and all books must be returned to the CampusBookRentals.com warehouse located in Clearfield, UT.
Are the books the exact same as your school bookstore?
Yes they are; based upon the search and verification you perform. Their search function allows you to see all details of the book which will ensure that the book is the same as what is in your bookstore. Books may be paperback or hardcover at the discretion of CampusBookRentals.com and based on availability from our suppliers at the time of rental. Books may also be an instructor’s version if it is determined by CampusBookRentals.com or a third party supplier that the instructor’s version is identical to the student version (besides instructor comments).
What kind of condition are the books in?
All textbooks are in an acceptable used, like new or new condition. They strive to provide you with high quality textbooks that have minimal wear similar to used books in your school bookstore.
Do the books come with all supplemental materials?
Because books they provide are potentially used, they cannot guarantee that your book will include student access codes, CD ROMs, workbook packages, etc. Supplemental materials are often used or damaged during the book’s initial use, and cannot be obtained. Please be sure you either have access to supplemental materials, or do not need them for your classes. Most professors do not require the supplemental materials that come with the core textbooks.
What if you need to keep your book longer than the rental period?
Rental periods should provide ample time for you to complete your classes, but if you find yourself needing to extend your rental period or re-rent the book altogether, simply access your account, select the book or books you wish to extend or re-rent, and you will be led to several options prior to checkout. You can extend 15 or 30 days, or re-rent the book all together at a great discount.
What if you want to keep your book after you’ve rented it?
No problem. The amount you pay to purchase your book is the difference between what you already paid to rent it, and the value of the book. Simply access your account, select the book or books you wish to buy, and click the “Buy Checked” button. You’ll be taken through the checkout process just like when you rented the books, and your account will be updated to show the new status of purchased.
Do you need to have a CampusBookRentals.com account?
Yes. For shipping and email notification purposes, you need to register. It’s absolutely free. You can also login to your account to check your rental history, rental status, etc.
Is there a membership fee or any other kind of fee?
Absolutely not. they don’t believe in gimmicky fees. Just rent the books you need when you need them for a low one-time price.
How Does Insurance Work and why should you insure your books?
Insurance is an exciting new option we’ve added for the benefit of our customers. When you select the insurance option during the checkout process, your book is insured against theft, loss, and damage. For a very low price, you can have peace of mind that your rentals are covered. Worry about your classes, not your books. See their Service Policy for detailed information on our Insure-a-Book program.
How will books arrive at my residence?
Via USPS, UPS, FedEx, or DHL at the discretion of CampusBookRentals.com or its suppliers.
Will all of your books arrive in one package?
It depends. If they come directly from their inventory, they will; however, they use several suppliers across the nation to insure the textbooks you order are available and arrive in a timely manner. This could result in your books coming from different suppliers who use different shipping carriers. Even books that are sold as a package set in your school bookstore could come individually to your shipping address.
Will you get my books on time?
As with any online purchase, it depends on when you order. Please provide yourself ample time to get your books before you need them.
What if your books don’t show up?
They do their best to insure they track your books and get them to you on time. Like any package delivery system, on very rare occasion, packages can be lost along the way.
