A damage waiver is a non refundable fee to cover the costs associated with the normal wear and tear of hired items. Our damage waiver is 7.5% of the hire item value. The damage waiver is not insurance, nor does it apply to hired items that are damaged, misplaced, misused or returned to us requiring extensive cleaning. Damage waivers are an industry standard fee for wear and tear only. For further details regarding the damage waiver please review your hire proposal.
