    1. What is Milton Rents Loss Damage Waiver?
      The Milton Rents Loss Damage Waiver is a program offered by Milton Rents that enables customers to significantly reduce their potential financial liability on rental equipment when it is lost or damaged. It is not Insurance.
    2. How much does the Loss Damage Waiver Cost?
      The fee for the Loss Damage Waiver is 15% of the rental amount. No Loss Damage Waiver fee is applied to purchases, delivery charges, fuels, or tax.
    3. How does the Loss Damage Waiver work?
      In exchange for purchasing the Damage Waiver, the customer limits their responsibility to pay (see #6). Without Loss Damage Waiver the renter is responsible for all charges to bring the rented items back to their original condition, or if lost, the full value of the equipment.
