Hire Restrictions Policy

 

Last updated: August 26, 2022

 

Terminology

 

A ‘rental agreement’ is the document read and signed by the customer on collection and return of the company’s vehicle. Signing the rental agreement document forms a contract between the customer and Elevation Campers.

 

This document includes wording as ‘you’, ‘your’,‘hirer’, ‘driver(s)’, ‘yourself’ which refers to the person or people hiring the campervan.

 

The campervan or ‘vehicle’ means the vehicle under hire and includes the engine, tyres, accessories, living equipment, bed, seats, and any other specific equipment.

 

The holding deposit payment confirms your acceptance to hire our vehicle which will be covered by our specified insurers, and upon receipt of emailed confirmation from us this contract shall have effect. The hire charge is due in two stages, 50% of the total hire fee is due 3 months before the start of the rental period, following that the remaining balance will be due 8 weeks before the rental period. If a booking is made within less than 3 months of the hire period, then full payment will be required on the day of booking. Vehicles will not be released until full payments are made.

 

Insurance

 

Elevation Campers provides fully comprehensive insurance to those named on the rental agreement only and those named are the only people insured to drive the vehicle. A copy of your driver’s licence and any other named drivers will need to be sent to our company email address (contactus@elevationcampers.com) at least 7 days before your hire period. You will be required to pre-authorise a £1500 damage deposit on collection, this will be used to pay for any insurance claim excess and anything that the insurance won't pay for such as loss of hires, traffic violation fines etc. We advise you to take out your own excess insurance to cover these fees in the event of the vehicle being damaged. It is your responsibility that the value of the deposit excess is covered and that 3rd party damages are covered. We have been made aware that CoverHire don't pay for 3rd party damages, this will be your responsibility to pay for this if the insurance doesn’t cover it. Please note that Kraken Customs Ltd T/A Elevation Campers reserves the right not to claim on our own insurance policy for damages caused by the hirer. You will be given an opportunity to inspect the vehicle thoroughly before and after the hire. A copy of the signed handover form will be given to you.
