The pre and post-hire checklists are important documents that should be completed by you, in the presence of the hirer, immediately prior to the commencement and completion of the hire.
Think of them as documents in a conditions report - similar to the commencement of a housing lease!
Make sure you and the hirer thoroughly inspect the RV to avoid any potential post-hire discrepancies. The pre-hire checklist takes into account the following:
- Hirer identification checking
- Existing condition of the van and its contents (interior + exterior)
- Supplied food/items
- Existing damage (if any)
- Fuel + gas levels (if applicable)
- General cleanliness
- Safety checks
- Agreed mileage distance allocation (if applicable)
This process takes between 15 to 60 mins to complete (all depending on the complexity of the van) and should be allocated for you and the hirer to ensure appropriate care is taken once the van is handed over.
Spend some time with the hirer, show them how everything works…..a good handover is key to a successful hire!
When the van is returned, the hirer and the owner will complete the post-hire checklist. This is the opportunity for owners to inspect their van for any damage or unexpected uncleanliness.
A link to the checklists appears at the top of the booking 24 hours before pick up day. Similarly, the post-hire checklist will also appear here. Please submit these documents 48 hours after the beginning or completion of the hire.
The checklists are critical for any hires that have taken place and subsequently require a bond or insurance claim. This documentation is used to support any claims made by the owner/hirer. Without completion of these documents, Camplify may not be able to support the recovery of the bond or a smooth insurance claim.
The checklists are there for you - please make sure you use them for every hire!
