Q: When will I be charged for the $500 security deposit (per snowmobile)?

A: You will be charged for the security deposit when you arrive at County Wide on the day your rental begins.

Q: County Wide sent me one quote for our group. Can the cost be split up between riders?

A: We would be happy to split up the rental fee and security deposit between members of your group. While we need at least one person in your group to send in the completed credit card authorization form and the signed participation agreement in order to hold your reservation, no charges will be made to their credit card until your group arrives at County Wide for your rental. The fees can be split up at that time.
