In the event of a claim with the counterparty, it is essential to note the licence plate, the insurance company, the driver's name and surname and any witnesses, name and surname of the car owner, which can be found in the booklet circulation. This information is indispensable. In the presence of new damages found on the return to the rented vehicle, which are not covered by the possible signing of optional clauses of limitation and / or exemption of the responsibility (Car Protection and or car protection plus ), we operate as follows:
- In the event of damage foreseen by the Ellepi Damage Table, the return office proceed immediately to the detection in contradictory with the Customer, to quantification e to debit the related amount on your card or with hold them from the security deposit
- In the event of damage not contemplated by the aforementioned Ellepi Damage Table, the office of return, carried out in contradictory detection with the Customer, cautionally blocks an amount on his credit card, without making any collection, pending the the damage assessment is performed. Following the aforementioned report, the client is sent a communication containing the documents proving the damage and the relative quantification and at the same time the estimated amount is debited.
In all cases in which it is not possible to detect the damage in contradictory with the Customer due to these reasons, Ellepi proceeds to block security on your credit card and quantifying the damage (through the table if applicable, or using the estimate performed by an expert), without making no cash. The communication with the documents is then sent to the customer proving the damage and its quantification and, after five days from that communication, we proceed to the debit.
The Customer has the right to contest the existence of the damage and / or its quantification .In this case, Ellepi evaluates the client's reasons and finds his complaint. Where the complaint is immediate or is received within two days of the communication forwarded to the customer containing the notice of charge, the relative procedure remains temporarily suspended and no proceeds are collected until the completion of the appropriate checks .In the event of a claim declared as active by the Client (CID one signature), the Lessor shall provide in any case to charge him, as a precautionary measure, a quantified sum through the application of the Ellepi Damage Table, or (for damages not contemplated) through a specific technical appraisal, pending the closure of the file by the Insurance Company. In the presence of insurance indemnity, this will be deducted of any penalties applied to the customer. If the damage, however, is attributable to the fault of the customer, he will also be charged the cost of the damage appraisal, if performed, and postal charges.
Exclusively in the event that the Customer who has declared the claim as an active product ,also produces a model of the friendly incident complaint (CID) regularly signed by the counterparty, the amount contractually foreseen as liability will not be charged. In the event that the insurance company of the counterparty does not liquidate the claim, since the CID form will be incomplete, inadequate, or the claim itself results in a fault or passive competition, we will then request the amount of damage caused to our car until at most the penalty for damages contractually provided.
