Rental Equipment Damage Waiver
The Rentus.com Rental Equipment Damage Waiver waives your responsibility for accidental damage to the equipment while in your possession and control. You must still take reasonable precautions to protect the equipment and not intentionally damage the equipment.
The "Rental Equipment Damage Waiver" is optional on all rental equipment. This covers the renter for accidental damage to the rental equipment.

DAMAGE WAIVER IS NOT INSURANCE
Damage waiver is NOT insurance. You are still responsible for all personal injuries or property damage as set forth in the Rental Contract or operation of the equipment. The Damage Waiver is enforced for the same duration as the rental period. A rental period begins when you pick up the rented equipment and ends when the rented item is returned.
SECURITY DEPOSIT: A security deposit will be held. Security deposit is due when rental is booked. The Company may use your deposit to pay any amounts owed to us under this agreement. If the amount of the security deposit is insufficient to satisfy all amounts due then the Renter agrees to pay all charges in excess, either by personal check or cashier's check. Deposit may be used to pay any amounts owed to us under this Agreement.
PROOF OF CONDITION: When picking up the equipment, both the Owner and the Renter must take pictures of at least 4 angles of the equipment item. These pictures must be timed stamped. In order to file a claim, we would need to see those pictures to prove the condition of the equipment when it was delivered to the renter. Failure to have these pictures when presenting a claim may result on the claim to be denied.
LIABILITY INSURANCE: Renter is responsible for all damage or loss you cause to himself or others due to the operation of the rented equipment.
