There is also a $500 a day loss of rental charge if a unit is found to be unsafe for other customer use. This loss of rental charge can accumulate depending of the availability of parts to correct the problem that occurred due to negligence. Damage is assessed on a per unit basis and will vary up the severity of the damage and the unit(s) state of use.

HOW MUCH IS THE DEDUCTIBLE ON THE INSURANCE?
The deductible if you wreck or damage the vehicle is up to $2500. Please note that the deductible is the amount of money that the insured (customer) MUST pay before our insurance company will pay the claim.
WHAT IF THE DAMAGE DOES NOT COST $2,500 AND CAN BE FIXED FOR LESS THAN THAT?
You will only be charged for the amount of the damage and labor cost to fix the damage. We are an honest and ethical company and treat our customers like family.
DOES THE $2,500 DEDUCTIBLE GET CHARGED TO MY CREDIT/DEBIT CARD OR DOES A “HOLD” FOR THAT AMOUNT APPEAR ON MY CARD?
