How to check the car before renting?

Car rental in Ukraine has become very popular not only among foreigners, for whom this is a quite common service, but also among our citizens, who have appreciated all the benefits of this service. Car rental interesting for travel lovers who do not have their own car, businessmen who want to meet their business partners at the airport or need a commercial vehicle fleet, but do not yet have sufficient capital to buy it, and many others, both individuals and legal entities.

The Narscars rental company takes care of all the maintenance of the vehicle, its timely insurance and compensation for losses in the event of an accident. It is enough for the lessee to choose a suitable car model, conclude an agreement for any period and pay the amount agreed in advance for its use.

But before you take the vehicle into your possession, you must carefully check it for malfunctions, various damages, stains and other defects, for which the rental company may demand compensation for damage upon delivery of the car. All such flaws must be recorded in the act of acceptance and transfer, so that subsequently there are no claims to the client.

Areas of special attention

Responsible companies offering car rental services, do not allow themselves to provide customers with cars in a faulty condition. Such car rentals have vehicles, even if they are not new, but with a mileage, will be serviceable, clean and with a full fuel tank. But even with reliable companies, you should not lose your vigilance, and even more so with those that you cannot inquire about or with which you are working for the first time. Never leave the car park until you have thoroughly checked the car that you plan to rent.

Be sure to inspect in good lighting in order to notice even the smallest flaws. Believe me, if you do not see them before you rent a car, they will certainly be noticed by a representative of the car rental organization during the return of the car.

Pay particular attention to several areas in the vehicle:

  • body, glass, mirrors. These elements of the vehicle can be carefully examined during an external inspection;
  • salon. It is imperative to inspect the car from the inside;
  • equipment. Do not be lazy to inspect the contents of the trunk, the car must have all the necessary tools and inventory for quick repairs on the road and for first aid.

If something is missing in the car or any flaws are found, it is necessary to inform the manager of the rental agency. In this case, the missing items of the complete set must be provided immediately, and information about the deficiencies must be included in the form of amendments to the contract or recorded in the acceptance certificate. If all the shortcomings are documented, you can be sure that there will be no disagreement between the client and the company afterwards when the machine is returned. If, in the client's opinion, the discovered flaws affect the quality of using the service, he may require a replacement car.

It is important not only to conduct a visual inspection of the car, but also to check its performance. To do this, you can ask the car rental manager to start the engine. It should work stably and smoothly.

External examination

During an external inspection, the renter must check the body for chips, scratches and dents. Similar flaws can also be found on windows, mirrors and headlights. Of course, car rental will not be able to eliminate such shortcomings at lightning speed, therefore, if the presentability of the car is in the first place, in the event of such defects, you can ask to replace the car. If appearance is not a priority, it is important to record the presence of any defects in the body and glass elements before renting a car.

Internal inspection

When examining the salon, pay attention to the integrity and performance of the following areas:

  • transmission cover;
  • interior upholstery;
  • window lifters;
  • air conditioning;
  • cigarette lighter;
  • audio system

Ask the car rental manager to check each of the functional elements of the cabin, turn on the climate control system and check the functionality of the multimedia equipment. Do not forget to mention all technical faults in the amendments to the contract.

Set

Each car must be equipped with a first aid kit, emergency sign, fire extinguisher. The absence of these items is a direct violation of traffic rules and may result in a fine. In addition to breaking the law, the absence of these elements can cause some discomfort for the renter himself in the event of an accidental fire or accident on the road.

In addition to the elements mandatory according to the SDA, the luggage compartment of the rented vehicle must have a spare tire and a jack. Without these items, in no case can you go on the road, especially if you have a long journey, far from maintenance services and civilization in general.

If any of the equipment items are missing in the selected model, the manager must immediately provide an equivalent replacement for either the missing item or the vehicle itself.

Car rental abroad

If it is supposed car rental abroad, it is necessary to find in advance a reliable car rental that provides such services. This must be done while still on the territory of Ukraine, so that the selected car has already been booked and waited for the client in a pre-agreed place.

Both in Ukraine and abroad, before accepting a car for rent, it is necessary to carefully examine it for various defects. Inspection is carried out in a similar way. To begin with, the body and external elements are examined, then the interior and its `` filling '', and then the vehicle equipment. All discovered deficiencies are recorded in the acceptance certificate, then when the rented car is handed over, there will never be any disagreements between the rental and the client.
