Rental Equipment Protection (REP)
Holt of California (“Holt”) offers Rental Equipment Protection (“REP”) for an additional fee.
REP is mandatory if you do not provide a Certificate of Insurance.
REP is optional if you provide a Certificate of Insurance covering the full replacement value of the equipment you rent from Holt (“Equipment”) naming Holt as additional insured.
If you decline REP then you will be responsible for the direct physical loss, including damages, repairs and/or replacement, to the Equipment as described in your rental agreement up to the full replacement cost of the Equipment (“Loss”).
If you accept REP, then Holt will waive certain claims against you for a Loss (“Claims”). Common Claims that are waived under REP include Claims resulting from accidental damage, collision, criminal acts, earthquake, falling objects, fire, flood, hail, ingestion, overturns, theft, tornado, vandalism, weight of load, and wind.
This waiver of Claims is not effective if the Equipment and/or the Loss is excluded from REP as described below.
Excluded Equipment: REP EXCLUDES THE FOLLOWING EQUIPMENT: aircraft; watercraft; vehicles designed for highway use and used for over the road transportation of people or cargo; waterborne property; vehicles licensed for the road while in transit; Equipment that is underground or in transit; underground mining; personal property.
