Before the time of pick-up, the customer must provide a certificate of insurance listing Deck Hand Inc. as “Loss Payee” and “Additionally Insured.” A credit card or cash deposit may be required for the insurance policy deductible. For equipment valued under $10,000, a security deposit equal to the full replacement value of the equipment may be accepted in lieu of a certificate. A security deposit may be cash, but most commonly is a “hold" of available credit from your credit card. We do not accept checks for security deposits.
Deck Hand cannot provide insurance coverage or waivers or cover clients under our insurance. If you would like a referral for insurance, please contact us.
