Some equipment and material rental companies encourage you to take out insurance at a significant price (10% of the rental price) to guarantee the damage that you would cause to the vehicle itself or to third parties during the use of it.
One of our customers who had taken out the rental provider’s guarantee, however, found himself without cover. We have therefore analyzed the guarantees offered by the rental company.
The “machine breakage” guarantee offered by the rental company to guarantee the machine in the event of damage is subject to extremely broad exclusions. The lessor can turn against you at any time to request either reimbursement of the repair costs in the event of partial damage or full payment for the vehicle if it cannot be repaired.
Note also that the costs of lifting and repairing the machine are generally excluded by the rental company: They are therefore your responsibility with a minimum cost of € 3,000. In the event of damage caused to third parties by the machine during its use, you are subject to a deductible of the order of 15% of damage with no maximum amount… So imagine the cost to be borne by you in the event of a bodily injury or in the event of the tearing of a gas pipe or an optical fiber!
If you rent for more than € 30,000 of equipment / year, we can offer you specific contracts:
✓ To cover damage caused to rented vehicles
✓ To guarantee the RC traffic and RC operation
