What happens if a piece of equipment is returned with less fuel than was provided by the Owner?
If a machine is returned with less fuel than that which was provided by the Owner then the Renter shall be obligated to pay to the Owner, through Eqpme, an additional charge to compensate for the lack of fuel. Any additional charges will be calculated in accordance with the fuel per litre price set out in the listing by the amount of litres necessary to match the pre inspection fuel confirmation.

What happens if a piece of equipment is returned over the daily hourly set rate?
Owners may set a daily hourly rate for any given rental. If the piece of equipment comes back to the Owner and the used time exceeds the allowable hours the Renter will be charged extra for hours used at the hourly rate set by the Owner in the listing or, if no hourly rate is specified, at the daily rate/# of included hours per day. The allowable hours are calculated over the total reservation time period (i.e. a seven day rental allowing eight hours per day provides a total of fifty-six hours, regardless of which day they are used).
