If you are in the unfortunate event of an accident with your rental vehicle and a third party we will ask that you do not admit liability in any circumstance. If you are unsure always obtain a police report that will help our insurance company to gauge who was at fault. We also ask you to complete an Accident Form which can be found in the vehicles glove box. This will prompt you to ask the correct questions and to gather the relevant information we need to make a claim on your behalf. All accidents must be reported to a Hireace representative the day it happens. You will also have to complete an insurance form with a representative at one of our branches. We do not guarantee to replace the vehicle if you are liable for the accident.
