The damage waiver is 11% of the rental price and is not refundable.  Acceptance of the Damage Waiver releases you, the renter, of damage done to the items due to normal wear and tear as well as cleaning fees. The damage waiver is not insurance and does not cover negligence, misuse, vandalism, abuse to the equipment or weather-related incidents.  You may decline the damage waiver whereby you assume responsibility for any and all damages. If the Damage Waiver is declined and items are damaged, repair and/or replacement costs will be assessed.
