Home improvement or do-it-yourself store chains such as Lowe's and The Home Depot offer tool rental services, including metal detector rentals. Many lawn and landscaping stores, such as Sunbelt Rentals, also rent metal detectors. Some beach shops offer metal detector rentals as well.
Location factors into the availability and types of shops that offer metal detector rentals. For example, it's more common to find various kinds of shops that lease or rent metal detectors in the southeast, because of warmer temperatures and the availability of beaches there. Areas such as certain parts of California and Nevada, where people have found gold, also tend to have more shops that specialize in metal detectors. Trans Bay Metal Detectors is an example.
