Dispute Discount Truck Damage in court?
There was windshield damage to a truck I rented. We didn't notice anything happen during our move and the 3 of us returned it after hours.
They didn't take pictures of the damage either.

You know what, this exact same thing happened to me long long time ago. Rented a car in Hawaii and we were running late returning the car due to an accident on the freeway. Left the car and ran. We get a letter in the mail almost a month later claiming that we returned the car with a cracked windshield. Total bullshit as I know 100% it was perfectly fine. Was pissed off and talked to them and it basically came down to "you don't have proof". Sucks and you would hope that people are honest but can't trust no one anymore it seems.

No they havn't... I think I will go to the rental place later and ask. Seems reasonable to see it since I'm paying for it now...

This is why I record photos/video of the car when I pick it up and when I drop it off. Lots of evidence if needed.D0ntgiveajack wrote: ↑ Rented a 20' truck. Went smooth, I didn't notice any damage.
I returned my truck at the end of the day and the lady said they'd inspect it next day because they were closing.
Got a call this morning that there was a pinky size chip/crack in the windshield.
I purchased the Collision Damage Waiver but it DOESN'T cover windshield or tires.
PC master card doesn't cover shit either.
What do I dooooooo? Estimate was $528

So much this!!
Not likely. I lol'd at uhaul when I rented a basic and I mean basic f150 with an eight foot box. When I was reading the agreement and insurance disclaimer, the sticker shock was amazing. uhaul valued said POS truck at $85,000 USD.

Hell i walk around my car and record a quick video of the exterior (and a photo of the mileage) when i drop it off at the dealership. And i trust my dealership haha. It's just easier and cuts through all the BS.

That's standard practice at the dealerships I go to.Ecsta wrote: ↑ Hell i walk around my car and record a quick video of the exterior (and a photo of the mileage) when i drop it off at the dealership. And i trust my dealership haha. It's just easier and cuts through all the BS.
Only do it because of stories like this one where rental places try to scam you, so for the 30 seconds it takes might as well.
