Insurance Policy and Rules
As Renter, is really important to not rent equipment without the right guarantees. Digital Cinema Crew takes care a lot of to this aspect. Renters, usually, have their own insurance policy, but sometime they don’t. So on the website is possibile to decide to not apply insurance to the customer, if you have your own insurance policy, or apply the website insurance to the customer (in this case the customer will leave a deposit through an authorization on his credit card), or the customer can present to the website and the owner his own third-party insurance. You can decide also that the equipment can be rented always with the owner, as a crew member or as rental technician. Without insurance coverage in general is not possible to rent on this platform. Website Insurance policy in general covers the totally the damage, but not completely the theft. For more information please contact our support.
The equipment owner will be protected according to the insurance procedures established by him or by the customer. If the customer has taken out insurance with the website, the deposit will be used (in whole or in part) for damage coverage. If the customer has used his insurance, the website will not be responsible for insurance operations, but it will support the customer and the owner to solve the problem. In the case owner’s insurance, it is the responsibility of the Customer and Owner to solve the problem. In the case of deposit due to lack of insurance coverage, the website will support the establishment of the quotas required for damages.
