Using RME to Rent or Use Equipment

How it Works

RME works by allowing users to connect with each other to share and rent equipment between themselves. RME works as an online marketplace where Users and Renters can come together to rent equipment in a decentralized environment.

Owners start by creating a listing of their equipment and setting a rental price. Renters rent the equipment from the Owners and pay the rental price, plus taxes and fees, if applicable (“Rental Fee”). RME deducts any taxes or fees owed (if applicable, may vary from jurisdiction to jurisdiction) takes a 25% fee of the gross rental price, including any delivery fees, and pays the Owner at the completion of the rental. For rentals one month or longer, RME will pay the Owner once each two weeks until the completion of the rental. Owners and Renters coordinate and communicate to determine delivery times, places, and methods, and pickups or return of equipment.

Age

You must be 18 years old or older to use this Site and the Platform.

Gray Market Transactions

RME prohibits the use of the Site or Platform to identify an owner or renter and then complete a transaction separate from (in any way) the Platform in order to circumvent your obligations and fees under the Terms or for any other reasons.

Types of Equipment Allowed

Only approved equipment or equipment types may be listed on the Platform. The list of approved or prohibited equipment may change from time to time and it is your responsibility to ensure compliance with allowed equipment. Failure to comply will result in removal of the listing from the Platform. Before listing, please view the equipment categories listed on our Site. RME reserves the right to prohibit any type of equipment or piece of equipment at any time, for any reason, and has the right to remove or delist prohibited equipment listings without notice.

Prohibited Equipment

RME reserves the right to prohibit any types of equipment, or any specific piece of equipment, at any time and without notice, from being listed on the Platform. RME may, from time to time, prohibit new or different equipment that may have previously been allowed. Some types of generally prohibited equipment include, but are not limited to: Automobiles; motorized boats; any other type of equipment or vehicle that is titled; any vehicle or piece of equipment that requires a special license to operate; firearms of any kind; inherently dangerous equipment, such as explosives, pyrotechnic equipment, fireworks or fireworks equipment; blasting equipment (or any equipment associated with blasting in any way); wrecking balls; items of a personal nature; disposable equipment or supplies; clothing (exception of technical suits and gear); SCUBA or diving apparatus, including air tanks; Equipment illegal anywhere in the United States; real property or premises of any kind, including storage spaces, office space, temporary or permanent living quarters; aircraft, rockets or launch equipment; sex toys or sexually oriented equipment; or medical equipment. Whether an item is prohibited or not is completely within the discretion of RME. Before listing, please consult a list of prohibited equipment at www.RentMyEquipment.com/prohibited.

Rental Agreement

Upon agreement of a price, both Owners and Renters are required to execute a rental agreement (“Rental Agreement”) by following the instructions at checkout. You agree to sign the agreement electronically or by checking a box indicating your agreement with the Rental Agreement. The Rental Agreement will contain the price, dates, delivery time and method, return time and method, and any special instructions. You agree that the Rental Agreement is a contract purely between you and the other party (Owner or Renter) and that RME is NOT a party to the Rental Agreement. The language and delivery of the Rental Agreement is provided by the Platform purely for convenience and does not create an obligation or right of RME or create any liability or participation in the transaction. By providing the rental Agreement, RME is not providing any legal advice but is merely facilitating the transaction with standardized forms.

Cancellations

Cancellations will follow the policies set forth below for Owners and Renters. All parties shall make every effort to honor their commitments and not cancel. However, RME recognizes that from time to time, events arise which prohibit a user’s completion of the transaction. RME reserves the right to waive compliance with the Terms for cancellation and may issue a refund, even if an Owner objects. Waiving compliance in one instance does not imply any waiver under any other circumstances. Whether a refund is granted is solely within the discretion of RME, though in instances where an Owner refunds money to a Renter or requests that a refund be issued, RME will not object.

Refunds

Generally, refunds are not available in situations in which a delivery is completed and the equipment is in generally good working order. Whether a piece of equipment works for a particular job or is successful is not a valid reason for a refund. For example, a Renter is not entitled to a refund simply because a rented pump, which otherwise works, was not successful in fixing a flooding problem. Each situation is unique and RME retains sole discretion in issuing refunds. If a piece of equipment is faulty, broken, in disrepair, or does not work as intended, or a paid for piece of equipment is not delivered in a timely manner, Please file a claim with our claims department at hello@rentmyequipment.com. Claims must be made within three (3) days of the occurrence of the issue for which you are requesting a refund.

Late Returns and Early Returns

Timely returns are important to ensure a community of equipment sharing that works. Accordingly, it is extremely important that you take all steps to return the equipment in a timely manner. However, since Owners project availability for equipment use on jobs based on bookings, there are no refunds or partial credits for returning a piece of equipment early. Equipment returned more than four (4) hours late for a daily rental or more than twelve (12) hours late on a weekly or greater period rental will be assessed a late return penalty equal to one (1) additional day at the daily rate (not weekly or better rate). A late charge may be waived for late returns outside the control of the Renter, in the discretion of the Owner, or in RME’s sole discretion. In situations in which a return requires an Owner to travel to the Renter, no late penalty will be charged to the Renter if the Owner does not arrive in a timely manner or elects to pick up the equipment at a later date or time, so long as the Renter has the equipment at the place of pickup at the arranged time of pickup.

Damage to Equipment

It is the responsibility of the Owner and the Renter to coordinate together to avoid damages to the equipment. Owners should keep good track of damages, dings, wear and tear, and other visible instances of damage and the condition of their equipment. Renters should visually inspect the equipment with Owners 1) upon delivery and 2) at return to ensure that Renters are not blamed for any damage that they did not incur. BOTH PARTIES SHOULD VISUALLY DOCUMENT THE CONDITION OF ALL EQUIPMENT VIA PHOTOGRAPHS TAKEN AT DELIVERY (OR TAKEN THROUGH THE RENTMYEQUIPMENT APP). RME cannot and will not mediate disputes between users if there is no photographic record clearly showing the condition of the equipment before and after the alleged damage occurred.

Many of the pieces of equipment rented are to be used in rugged environments and wear and tear, including visual wear and tear, is to be expected. Unlike a car rental, in many instances the visual appearance of a piece of equipment (such as a bulldozer) is less important than its function and visual scratches and denting is to be expected. In such instances, Owners should limit claims for situations that they in good faith believe to be beyond normal wear and tear of equipment being used as intended in working and rugged environments.

In instances where the equipment is sensitive or Users are especially concerned about damage, users should obtain appropriate insurance policies covering all concerned damage areas.

Claims

Any claims for damage, broken or nonworking equipment, or refunds, should be made in writing by emailing hello@rentmyequipment.com and clearly identifying the listing, rental, rate, dates, and circumstances where indicated. A claims representative will be in touch with you in a timely manner. All claims for any reason must be brought within thirty (30) days of the date of occurrence of the incident giving rise to a claim.

Dangers of Using Equipment

Many of the items of equipment listed on the Platform have the potential to bedangerous tools or machinery. It is completely up to the Renter of the equipment to determine whether you are sufficiently qualified and trained to use each piece of equipment that you rent. By renting, paying for, or taking delivery of a piece of equipment, you are representing to RME and the Owner that you possess the knowledge, skill, training, or experience to operate that piece of equipment, or that you will gain the required knowledge, skill, training, or experience to operate the equipment before you use it. RME cannot be held responsible for damages, harm, or injuries that result by your improper or unqualified use of any equipment on the Platform.

Discrimination

RME does not tolerate discrimination against its users. All qualified persons of age are welcome. We require our Users, Owners, and Renters to follow the same community principles, and you agree not to discriminate who you rent to or rent from on any one of these on the basis of race, ethnicity, language, religion, national origin, sex, sexual orientation, or gender identity or expression. We reserve the right to enforce our policies regarding discrimination at our discretion, up to and including being banned from the Platform.

Community Principles

RME was founded on the idea that good-hearted people can help each other by sharing equipment to get jobs done and improve their lives and the lives of those around them. RME believes in that community, and strives for each of its users to adhere to the following principles: hard work, honesty, taking pride in our equipment and projects, treating others with respect, treating other’s equipment as good as or better than you would treat your own, following your word, individualism, freedom, the right to an honest day’s work.

Disqualification

RME reserves the right to limit, suspend, terminate account and access to the Platform, remove content, demote, delist, or remove listings, or ban from the Platform and take necessary steps to do so (“Disqualify”) any party (person or entity) who RME determines in its sole discretion. There are many reasons that a party may be disqualified. Some of the reasons are listed below:

This list is not exhaustive and many of the situations in which a use is disqualified are on a case by case basis. It is completely within the discretion of RME to determine whether a party is disqualified or banned from participating on the Platform, and the length of time, up to and including indefinitely, for the disqualification. Parties disqualified may request an internal review upon being disqualified and additional internal review once every two (2) years thereafter. Decisions regarding reviews by RME will be decided by the review committee whose decisions are final. Parties do not have the right to bring a legal action or an arbitration proceeding based upon any decision of RME to disqualify that party, and you specifically waive any legal rights to dispute RME’s decisions regarding disqualification or other Discipline.

Additionally, we reserve the right to refuse or terminate our Services to anyone for any reason at our discretion to the full extent permitted under applicable law.

Interpreting our Policies, Enforcement; Policy Enforcement

When an issue arises, RME may consider the user’s performance history and the specific circumstances in applying our Policies. We may choose to waive any of our enforcement policies or discipline in an effort to provide a good experience for our users. However, waiving a requirement or treating a matter more leniently than we may be allowed to by these Terms does not mean that any other Term is waived or that we are waiving our right to enforce the same or similar circumstance, with the same party or different parties, differently in the future.

Illegal Activity, Cooperation with Authorities

RME has a zero-tolerance policy for illegal behavior. If we make a reasonable determination that illegal activity has occurred in connection with the Services or Platform, we will report such suspected activity to the proper law enforcement authorities. In instances in which illegal activity is reported but unproven or mistaken, whether through diligence, negligence, gross negligence, or for any other reason, you specifically waive your right to bring a civil or criminal action against RME for reporting the activity to law enforcement authorities, to the fullest extent allowed by law.

RME cooperates with Law Enforcement Authorities in their investigations. To the extent required by law, we will provide information requested under a properly issued subpoena or other court order to produce information, including information about users, personal information, cookies, data, usage history and audit trails, and information regarding specific transactions. By interacting with the Site, you agree that any information provided or created by your interactions with the Site or other users may be produced to law enforcement authorities or other parties upon criminal or civil requests, in accordance with the law.

RME takes stolen equipment very seriously. If we suspect that any items listed on the Platform are stolen, we will report any evidence we receive to authorities in accordance with our legal duties. If you believe that any piece of equipment listed on the Platform belongs to you and is being listed improperly or without your permission, please contact our claims department at hello@rentmyequipment.com. Please note: simply because someone makes a claim that a piece of equipment is stolen or being used without permission does not mean that it will be removed or the equipment seized. We will make reasonable efforts to investigate claims but we will not be held responsible, and disclaim any responsibility for failure to act or failure to identify improper listings or stolen equipment. If you believe a piece of equipment listed on the Platform is stolen, please contact authorities.

Terms for Owners

Use

You agree to provide safe equipment, fueled or charged, in good and working order (including topped off fluids, tires with sufficient treads), ready to run with all required maintenance. You agree to provide the equipment to renters on time and in the condition in which it was advertised.

Updating Availability

You agree that as a part of your permission to list a piece of equipment on the Platform, you will continually update the availability of the equipment as its availability changes, including but not limited to, if you offer it for rent on another platform, you should promptly update the Platform to show that it is not available on that date. Repeatedly cancelling may result in the suspension or removal of your account from the Platform.

Fees

Owners set the rent for their equipment. RME will not interfere with rental rates unless it appears that such fees are in violation of these Terms or are fraudulent. RME takes a fee of 25% of the total gross rental fee, including any delivery fee (“Fee”). This fee is deducted at the time the Rental Fee is paid. RME collects and disperses fees in the following manner: Renter pays the entire amount charged, including sales and use tax (in states and localities where this is applicable) (“Rental Fee”). RME collects the entire amount charged. In certain states and if applicable, RME will collect sales and use tax for remittance to the proper tax authorities. In other cases RME or the law may require the Owner to collect and remit its own sales and use taxes. RME will then deduct its Fee, and deduct any additional fees or charges. In the event that an Owner owes Fees or other charges to RME, RME has the right to cross-deduct that amount owed to it from additional or separate Rental Fees.

Payment

RME will remit the amount due to Owner at the completion of the rental period, or for rentals for one month or longer, RME will remit progress payments to Owner each 2 weeks. Payments will be made only by ACH through the payment account setup by owner in Stripe Connect at the time of registering for an account or modified thereafter by Owner. RME will not be responsible for any errors in sending of the money to a wrong account in the event that Owner enters the wrong bank account information into Stripe Connect’s system. In the event any money is sent to the wrong account, it will be the Owner’s responsibility to contact the financial institution and determine where the money went and to request a refund to RME. Once RME receives any refund, RME will then, and only then, remit the payment to Owner again to the correct account.

Fuel

Equipment should be delivered or picked up as full and should be returned with full fuel. Owner will be able to set the fee charged to the Renter in the event that the Equipment is returned without a full fuel tank.

Cleaning

Delivery

It is the responsibility of Owners and Renters to determine the proper method of delivery of a piece of equipment. Owners may set additional rates for the delivery of a piece of equipment (for example, a charge to deliver a piece of equipment via flatbed truck to the property of the Renter). RME is not responsible for unsuccessful deliveries. Owners and Renters should communicate with each other to ensure prompt and safe deliveries. If you feel unsafe making a delivery, do not continue with the delivery and notify RME immediately.

Cancellation

Owners may create their own policies for cancellations and refunds, subject to the objection of RME and in accordance with these Terms. Any policies created by owner regarding cancellations must be clearly stated on the Equipment’s listing page. In the event that an Owner should need to cancel a rental due to circumstances outside of the reasonable control of the Owner (such as: unavailability of the equipment, the equipment is unusable, maintenance issues with the equipment, etc.), Owners may do so at any time prior to delivery and refund the Rental Fee back to the Renter. In the event of a cancellation, Owners should take reasonable steps to substitute the cancelled equipment with an equal or better piece of equipment. In the event of a substitution, Renters will always have the ability to reject the substitute equipment and request a refund. Repeated cancellations or unavailability of equipment may negatively impact the ratings of the Owner. Additionally, RME has the right to cancel any listing or rental at any time for any reason, in which case a refund will be issued to the Renter or as the case may be.

Special Requests

Occasionally, Renters may make special requests. It is up to the Owners to determine whether or not to grant the requests. When in doubt, consult our Community Principles.

Representations and Warranties

In the event that the Owner cancels a reservation at any time, Renters will be entitled to a refund. In the event of a cancellation, Owners should take reasonable steps to substitute the cancelled equipment with an equal or better piece of equipment.

TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, YOU WAIVE ANY AND ALL RIGHTS YOU HAVE TO SUE OR MAKE CLAIMS AGAINST RME AND ITS RESPECTIVE SUBSIDIARIES, DIRECTORS, OFFICERS, AGENTS (INCLUDING THIRD PARTY ADMINISTRATORS, INSURANCE PRODUCERS, AND INSURANCE PROVIDERS), OR EMPLOYEES (TOGETHER, THE “ RME PARTIES”) AND ANY RME USER (EXCEPT AS PROVIDED HEREIN) FOR ANY DAMAGES OR LOSSES ARISING OUT OF OR IN CONNECTION WITH YOUR USE OF THE SERVICES INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, THE AVAILABILITY OF EQUIPMENT, ANY MALFUNCTION OF OR DEFICIENCY IN EQUIPMENT, ANY BREACH OF WARRANTY OR OTHER OBLIGATION BY ANY MANUFACTURER OR OTHER THIRD PARTY, ANY PERSONAL INJURY OR PROPERTY DAMAGE SUFFERED BY YOU OR ANY THIRD PARTY, AND, IN THE CASE OF THE RME PARTIES, ANY ACTIONS OR INACTION OF THE OWNER. NEITHER RME NOR ANY OTHER PARTY INVOLVED IN CREATING, PRODUCING, OR DELIVERING SERVICES WILL BE LIABLE FOR ANY INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, EXEMPLARY, OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, INCLUDING LOST PROFITS, LOSS OF DATA, OR LOSS OF GOODWILL, SERVICE INTERRUPTION, COMPUTER DAMAGE OR SYSTEM FAILURE, OR THE COST OF SUBSTITUTE PRODUCTS OR SERVICES, FROM THE USE OF OR INABILITY TO USE THE SERVICES, OR FROM YOUR LISTING OR BOOKING OF ANY VEHICLE OR OPTIONAL EXTRA VIA THE SERVICES, WHETHER BASED ON WARRANTY, CONTRACT, TORT (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE), PRODUCT LIABILITY, OR ANY OTHER LEGAL THEORY. Except for our obligations to pay Rental Fees pursuant to these Terms, including an approved payment request or claim under a request for refund, damages claim, or applicable insurance policy, in no event will RME ’s or its subsidiaries’ or insurers’ aggregate liability arising out of or in connection with this Agreement or your use of the Platform, exceed the greater of (i) the amounts you have paid or owe for rental reservations via the Platform as a Renter in the three month period prior to the event giving rise to the liability, or if you are a Owner, the amount earned by you in the three month period prior to the event giving rise to the liability, or (ii) US$100. THE LIMITATIONS OF DAMAGES SET FORTH ABOVE ARE FUNDAMENTAL ELEMENTS OF THE BASIS OF THE BARGAIN BETWEEN RME AND YOU. SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION OF LIABILITY FOR CONSEQUENTIAL OR INCIDENTAL DAMAGES, SO THE ABOVE LIMITATION MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU. YOU WAIVE CALIFORNIA CIVIL CODE §1542, OR ANY SIMILAR LAW, WHICH STATES: “A GENERAL RELEASE DOES NOT EXTEND TO CLAIMS WHICH THE CREDITOR DOES NOT KNOW OR SUSPECT TO EXIST IN HIS OR HER FAVOR AT THE TIME OF EXECUTING THE RELEASE, WHICH IF KNOWN BY HIM OR HER MUST HAVE MATERIALLY AFFECTED HIS OR HER SETTLEMENT WITH THE DEBTOR.” TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, YOU WAIVE ANY AND ALL RIGHTS YOU HAVE TO SUE OR MAKE CLAIMS AGAINST ANY RME USER FOR ANY DAMAGES OR LOSSES ARISING OUT OF OR IN CONNECTION WITH YOUR USE OF THE PLATFORM AND SITE UNLESS (1) YOU ARE AN OWNER WHO HAS DECLINED A PROTECTION PLAN VIA THE SERVICES AND ARE MAKING A CLAIM AGAINST A RENTER WHO RENTED EQUIPMENT FOR WHICH YOU OPTED TO PROVIDE YOUR OWN COMMERCIAL/RENTAL INSURANCE OR COVERAGE TO THE RENTER; (2) YOU ARE A RENTER WHO RENTED EQUIPMENT FROM AN OWNER WHO OPTED TO DECLINE A PROTECTION PLAN VIA THE PLATFORM AND SUCH OWNER OPTED TO PROVIDE INSURANCE OR PROTECTION DIRECTLY TO YOU AND YOU ARE MAKING A CLAIM AGAINST THAT COMPANY/OWNER; OR (3) YOUR CLAIM RELATES TO MATTERS OUTSIDE THE COVERAGE POLICY OF ANY INSURANCE POLICY.

Indemnification

To the absolute extent permitted by applicable law, you agree to release, defend, indemnify, and hold RME and its subsidiaries, officers, directors, employees, and agents, harmless from and against any claims, liabilities, damages, losses, and expenses, including, without limitation, reasonable legal and accounting fees, arising out of or in any way connected with your access to or use of the Platform, Site, or Services or your violation of these Terms; your user content; your interaction with any user, rental of equipment, or creation of a listing equipment; or the use, of equipment, including but not limited to any injuries, losses, or damages (compensatory, direct, incidental, consequential, or otherwise) of any kind arising in connection with or as a result of a use or rental of equipment.

Liquidated Damages/Contract Penalty

You acknowledge that the actual damages likely to result from you (i) engaging in gray market transactions (i.e., using RME to find a guest or vehicle, and then completing a reservation or related transaction partially or wholly independent of RME, in order to circumvent the obligation to pay any RME Fees) or (ii) registering domains, social media handles, bidding on key words, or otherwise using the RME domains, trademarks, or taglines are difficult to estimate and would be difficult for RME to prove. You will pay RME $5,000 in Liquidated Damages to compensate RME for any such conduct. This amount is not intended as a punishment for any such breach.

No Agency

Neither you nor any other user are the employee, agent, or attorney in fact of RME. You do not have the ability or the authority to enter into any agreement with any other party or person on behalf of RME, make commitments on behalf of RME, or make representations for or about RME, except in the limited circumstances described in these Terms or in the Agreement. RME cannot and will not act on your behalf except in the narrow circumstances described in these Terms.

Miscellaneous

RME may, without notice, revise these Terms at any time by updating this posting. Your continued use of the Site, Platform, or Services now, or following the posting of any changes or modifications, will indicate acceptance by you of such changes or modifications. These Terms will be governed and be interpreted pursuant to the laws of the State of Tennessee and the United States of America, notwithstanding any principles of conflicts of law. If any part of these Terms of Use is declared unlawful, void, or unenforceable, that part will be deemed severable and will not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions. Possible evidence of use of the Site for illegal purposes will be provided to law enforcement authorities. This is the entire agreement between the parties relating to the use of the Site.

RME reserves the right to seek all remedies available at law and in equity for violations of this Agreement, including the right to block access from a particular Internet address to our Website.

Invalidity

If any part of these Terms is unenforceable (including any provision in which we exclude our liability to you) the enforceability of any other part of the Terms will not be affected all other clauses remaining in full force and effect. So far as possible where any clause/sub-clause or part of a clause/sub-clause can be severed to render the remaining part valid, the clause shall be interpreted accordingly. Alternatively, you agree that the clause shall be rectified and interpreted in such a way that closely resembles the original meaning of the clause /sub-clause as is permitted by law.

Waiver

If you breach these conditions and we take no action, we will still be entitled to use our rights and remedies in any other situation where you breach these conditions.

Entire Agreement

The above Terms of Service constitute the entire agreement of the parties and supersede any and all preceding and contemporaneous agreements between you and RME. Any waiver of any provision of the Terms of Service will be effective only if in writing and signed by an officer of RME.
