The rental contract has attached departure and return checklists covering simple tasks you should complete before you accept the vehicle. The walkthrough aids you in handling the vehicle correctly, and ensures that both you and the owner agrees on the vehicle condition before you departs, including recording existing damages, odometer readings and fuel level.
When you and the owner are in agreement, you are to jointly sign both copies of the checklists.
When you return with the vehicle, you are to jointly inspect the vehicle again for possible damages, missing equipment and accessories, and record any sign of abuse or mishandling. You are to settle excess mileage, no cleaning and missing fuel directly with the owner. This is necessary in order to complete the rental. Should there be any damages, the owner is to be informed. We will take it from there.
