At the time of the trip, both the owner and the renter should fully walk around and inspect the
motorcycle and agree on any existing damage, as well as the general condition of the
motorcycle. Any damage present at the end of the reservation is presumed to be the
responsibility of the renter, so the renter should clearly photograph and document any
pre-existing damage at the beginning of the reservation.
At the time of return, the owner and renter should do another walk around the vehicle and agree
that the motorcycle was returned in the same condition. If there is any new damage, it is the
renter’s responsibility, regardless of fault. The renter and owner should discuss whether it merits
reporting to us, or if it is sufficiently minor that something can be worked out between the
owner and the renter.
