What if the accident was not my fault?
Damages to the vehicle while in your care is your responsibility. We will try our utmost to recoup all monies lost from the person responsible for the damage. However, please keep in mind that very few people on the road have insurance and many are unable to pay out of their own pockets. In this situation, we are forced to claim from our insurance hence having to an excess resulting in the customer forfeiting their deposit.
We, therefore, recommend “Super Cover” insurance to limit your liability to only that of your deposit amount. After the accident, the customer would be requested to pay a new deposit before a replacement vehicle is provided. This money would then be repaid to the customer if we have been paid by the 3rd party responsible for the damage.
