Managing Rental Agreements

Rental Agreements contain the terms and conditions that form the contract between the limousine company and its customers.

 
Limo Anywhere has the functionality to store multiple Reservation Agreements and can apply to different types of trips.  For example there could be a Rental Agreement that applies to business travelers going to and from an airport that would have far different terms than a Rental Agreement that would apply to a night on the town. The option to create, store an utilize multiple Rental Agreements is a decision for each limousine company.
 
Limo Anywhere comes with a Standard Rental Agreement installed.  The Standard Rental Agreement reads as follows:
 
All deposits are NON refundable. Company is not liable in the event of mechanical breakdown while on charter and will only be responsible for making up lost time at a mutually agreed date. The client assumes full financial liability for any damage to the limousine caused during the duration of the rental by them or any members of their party. A fee of 100.00 for each carpet or seat burn. Sanitation fee is 250.00. Alcohol Consumption and drug use is prohibited by law. Any fines will be paid for by the customer. The driver has the right to terminate run without refund (if there is blatant indiscretion on the part of the client(s)). It is Illegal to stand through the sunroof. Smoking is not permitted in some of our limousines and this is left to the discretion of the driver. Overtime pay will apply after the first 15 minutes of prearranged time described on the run sheet. Not responsible for delays or the termination in winter caused by unsafe road conditions (ie. not salted, accidents, etc.). Not responsible for articles left in the limousine. Balances to be paid to the driver on the run date before the beginning of the run. Vehicles cannot be loaded beyond seating capacity.
 
Important Notice:  Limo Anywhere has provided the Standard rental Agreement as an example.  In no way should this example be construed as the necessary verbiage to create binding contract.  Limo Anywhere recommends that each company create their own agreement that will be applicable for the regulations and laws where it operates. 
 
Rental Agreements can be added, edited, or deleted at any time.
