In the wild world of blue collar jobs, there are countless ways to get scratches on your truck. When your boss has trusted you with a pickup rental, it can feel like a lot of pressure. If you are driving a pickup rental then you are going to have to have the rental company’s insurance information. Here are some ways to avoid any of this from happening.
Tight Parking Spaces
Try to avoid tight parking spaces. This can allow you to give yourself and others enough space to get in and out of your car. If you park in a small space then it can be easier to accidentally swipe someone’s car with you car door. Keep in mind that it’s easy to have the wind push your car door open without your control. If this happens then it is very likely that you will create a scratch or dent on someone else’s car.
Avoid Bins That Might Tip Over
You may find it hard to believe but garbage cans and even large branches can be the reason that pickup rental gets scratched. Be aware of your surroundings when you are parking, and try to not park close to anything that might tip over. Again, the weather conditions may play a part in the case that your car does get scratched.
Avoid Minor Collisions
Minor collisions while driving in reverse may also affect your car’s wellbeing. Whether you accidentally back into another vehicle, a parking lot post or an object thrown by your kid, scratches to the rear of the vehicle are easy to come by.
Regardless of the cause, if your flatbed rental accidentally backs into another vehicle, a parking post, a tree or an object, take it in to your local Flex Fleet Canada hub to get fixed. Things happen — we understand that — and we won’t charge you for every tiny ding and dent on your rental vehicle.
