The Owner understands that The Quipmo Insurance policy is limited to theft, loss or damage to the Gear during the scheduled rental period, and only in the event that the Renter defaults on its obligations under the Agreement and where the owner is unsuccessful claiming against their own business insurance policy and or their home and contents insurance policy, that it does not cover ordinary wear and tear, any repairs or replacements paid for by the Renter, or any theft or damage occurring prior to or after conclusion of the scheduled rental period. The Quipmo Insurance policy only provides coverage for Gear rented through the Quipmo Platform. No coverage is provided for third party property, personal injuries or other losses, which are the sole responsible of the Renter or Owner, as applicable.
When you file a damage or theft claim, Quipmo determines, at its sole discretion, whether your claim qualifies for coverage under The Quipmo Insurance policy. Quipmo’s original determination is considered final, but you may be able to file an appeal of the decision with Quipmo if you have new or compelling information not available at the time of the original determination or you believe there was an error in the decision-making process.
7.2. In order to access The Quipmo Insurance policy, Owners must first have:
- included accurate and current photographs and description of the Gear within the listing prior to the rental period, and to the extent such photographs and description are sufficient to establish the make, model, components and condition of the Ride and any accessories (if applicable)
- for Damage
- where there is not total loss, the Owner must have communicated via the Quipmo Platform with the Renter with regards to payment of costs in accordance with the Quipmo Rental Agreement’s Schedule 1 within twenty four (24) hours of completion of the rental, and communicated within seventy two (72) hours of completion of the rental that they have not as yet received funds from the Renter in accordance with Quipmo Rental Agreement’s Schedule 1
- If there is damage to a Ride during a Rental, the Owner must notify Quipmo within twenty four (24) hours of completion of the rental or prior to any subsequent rental, whichever occurs first. If any damage is not reported during such period, then the damage shall be presumed to have occurred subsequent to the rental. Owner shall be responsible for the cost of any diagnostic fees, estimates, tune-ups, adjustments, etc.
- have accurately completed and submitted to Quipmo Pre Rental Form and Post Rental Form for the transaction
- Provide to Quipmo photographic evidence of the damage
- For Theft
- If Renter does not return a Gear at the conclusion of the rental, and does not agree within twenty-four (24) hours to schedule a new return time, or does not return the Gear at such rescheduled return time, then the Owner:
- agrees to file a report with the applicable police department and provide a copy of such report to Quipmo. In filing the report, Owner is required to notify the police department of The Quipmo Insurance policy, and that Quipmo may ultimately be subrogated to Owner’s right to recovery of the Gear. Owner must also authorize the police department to discuss and provide any information regarding the case with Quipmo; and
- must notify Quipmo within twenty four (24) hours of completion of the rental that a theft has occurred. If the theft is not reported during such period, then the theft shall be presumed to have occurred subsequent to the rental.
- If Renter does not return a Gear at the conclusion of the rental, and does not agree within twenty-four (24) hours to schedule a new return time, or does not return the Gear at such rescheduled return time, then the Owner:
All claims under The Quipmo Insurance policy require that the Owner has communicated with Quipmo within twenty-four (24) hours of return of the Gear; late claims will not be honoured. No exceptions to the 24-hour rule will be honoured. All claims for damage must include the evidence as noted herein; however, Quipmo reserves the option to require a physical inspection prior to making any payment under The Quipmo Insurance policy. Any claim for a stolen Gear must be accompanied by a police report to be valid. For all claims, the Owner may be required to provide additional documentation, such as purchase receipts, maintenance records, and such other documents as Quipmo may request in its reasonable discretion.
7.3. Any evidence that implies, at Quipmo’s full discretion, that the Owner has not complied (or attempted to not comply) with any of the Agreement at any time or for any transaction, including transacting outside of Quipmo platform will mean the said Owner is unable to access The Quipmo Insurance policy. If the Owner has complied with these terms at all times since becoming a User, Quipmo will first attempt to recover the costs from the particular Renter through any number of means, including through its secure payment gateways (Stripe or Paypal), charging the Borrower’s credit card or contacting the Borrower directly. Quipmo reserves the right to attempt to recover from the Borrower for up to 90 days before paying out any claim under this policy.
7.4. Renter Default
Where a Renter has not made good on its obligations under this Agreement, and where Quipmo has been unsuccessful in its attempts to recover the monies owing to the Owner, where the Owner has business insurance or Home and Contents Insurance, the Owner is obliged to attempt to recover their loss from their insurer before making a claim for The Quipmo Insurance policy. Where the Owner has a business insurance policy or home and contents insurance policy, the Owner must provide Quipmo evidence that their claim has been unsuccessful.
Where the Owner has met all terms and processes of the Agreement, The Quipmo Insurance policy policy will then be engaged.
7.5. Replacement or Reimbursement

- For damage included in Quipmo Rental Agreement’s Schedule 1, per the amounts prescribed within Quipmo Rental Agreement’s Schedule 1
- For total loss, for lost or stolen Gear, or where the repair cost would exceed the replacement value of the Gear, Quipmo will make commercially reasonable efforts to provide the Owner with a Gear that is of a similar make, model and year, and with similar components and other aftermarket parts or if the Gear or components are not reasonably available at standard retail prices Quipmo reserves the right to provide Gear of equal quality or a cash amount of equal value. In order to determine the value of the Gear and/or components in question, Quipmo will use market indicators to determine the fair market value and shall also account for any salvage value of the Ride, if applicable. These values are determined by year, condition, and overall value and may use the following sources: product manufacturer’s websites, our network of industry partners and shops, e-commerce websites such as Gumtree, Craigslist, Ebay and other reliable sources to be used at Quipmo’s discretion. Quipmo may use other relevant factors in its reasonable discretion.
- For damage, beyond Quipmo Rental Agreement’s Schedule 1, but where the cost of repairs is less than total loss, the repair cost of the Gear shall be determined at Quipmo’s reasonable discretion, and may be in consultation with professional repair personnel knowledgeable in the appropriate field.
