since there are a ton of poker rooms and casinos
around Detroit we can easily rent Shufflemaster's Deck Mate shufflers locally, and at a good price (unless you live in Michigan
you will never get it at our price so its inconsequential). We use the crap out of them so they need repair once or twice a year, which they cover in the rental agreement.
but the website sucks for information, you are better off calling and even seeing if you can rent them where you live first, then get a catalog emailed to you or whatever.
side note- they will probably not rent to you if your game is raking off-book, so dont tell them
furthermore, if your game only runs a few times a month, or doesnt rake that much, it wont be worth renting it..obviously renting something in the long run will far exceed the price it would be to buy it, but renting it comes with many perks if it generates enough money to pay for itself and beyond
