What If The Truck Is Not Returned By My Rental Time?

We do everything in our power to make sure the Truck is available on your reservation date. However, in some circumstances beyond our control such as a Renter not returning the Truck on time, or a Mechanical issue with the Truck, your reservation will be cancelled. We bear no financial responsibility if a circumstance beyond our control prevents us from providing the Truck for your use during your scheduled rental time.

How Late Can I Come In To Fill Out Paperwork?

Paperwork MUST be filled out during normal business hours (Mon-Fri: 9:30am-5pm) at our office. If you are not able to make it in to fill out paperwork prior to our office closing, then your Truck Reservation may be cancelled. You MUST complete the Rental Paperwork before you can use the Truck.

We have other clients that have scheduled an entire move around a Rental Period and need to begin on time. A late return may result in revocation of future Truck use privileges.

Who Do I Contact If I Have A Problem With The Truck While I Am Using It?

Contact Mickey: (434) 660-6032 and let us know the current issue you are experiencing so that we can attempt to help you.

Who Is Responsible For Problems With The Truck During My Use?

If the problem is Mechanical and cannot be repaired onsite, we will work together to come up with a suitable solution to help you finish your move. If the problem is Mechanical caused by the Renter (Out of / Wrong Type of Gas, Flat Tire, Struck an Object, etc.), it is the Renter’s responsibility to reconcile the problem as quickly as possible as well as report the problem to either Mickey or Jake. If the Truck is involved in an accident, you MUST report the accident to the proper authorities right away as well as to either Mickey or Jake. In cases of a Vehicle Accident, we will not pursue other parties if responsible, we will require the Renter to cover damages, and pursue other parties separately.

What Happens If: I Am late Returning The Truck / Do Not Fill It Up / Do Not Clean It Out / The Truck Has Damage?

If the Truck is returned with damage, we will contact you about your financial responsibility for the necessary repairs. If you are either Late Returning the Truck, Fail to Fill the Gas Tank, or Don’t Clean Out the Truck, you will be financially responsible and possibly forfeit your future Truck use privileges.

If You have A Mishap:

Please call the Police right away, because Insurance Companies require a Police Report when filing a claim. Then, please call your Insurance Agent and explain the situation. Finally, call Mickey at (434) 660-6032, and let us know what happened.
