A pre-hire checklist is an important document that is completed by both yourself and the owner immediately prior to the commencement of the hire. 

Think of it as a conditions report - similar to the commencement of a housing lease. Make sure you thoroughly inspect the van during this time to avoid any potential post-hire discrepancies.  We encourage all hirers to take pictures of the van and existing damage during the handover.

The pre-hire checklist will take into account the following:

  • Existing condition (interior + exterior)
  • Supplied food/items
  • Existing damage (if any)
  • Fuel + gas levels
  • General cleanliness
  • Bed linen

When you return the van, you and the owner will complete the post-hire checklist. The post-hire checklist has the same purpose as the pre-hire checklist. This is the opportunity for owners to inspect their van for any damage or unexpected uncleanliness. 

Check-lists must be completed in the presence of the hirer, unless previously agreed by both parties in writing.
