What we quote is what we charge and includes

  • Damage Waiver – reasonable conditions apply.
  • GST
  • Tank of fuel.

What the hire rate doesn’t include

  • Late Fees – we allow 1/2 hour grace before excess charges apply.
  • Speeding Tickets – we know you’ll be excited to get started but don’t break the road rules.
  • Cleaning Fee – we don’t expect it to sparkle but…

What are the damage waiver conditions?

Here’s the small print


7.1 The Fee includes a damage waiver premium unless otherwise agreed in writing.

7.2 If the Fee does include the damage waiver premium, Better Rentals will waive the cost of repairs or replacement of the Hire Equipment only in respect of accidental damage on payment by the Customer of $550 inclusive of GST or 10% of the repair or replacement costs, whichever is greater.

7.3 Damage Waiver is never available for damage or loss due to water damage.


8.1 If the Fee includes the damage waiver premium and the Hire Equipment is stolen from the Customer during the Hire Period and the theft occurred by forced entry to the Customer’s premises, then if a police report is provided to Better Rentals within 24 hours of the theft and the police report states that the theft occurred by forced entry, Better Rentals will waive the cost of replacement of the Hire Equipment on payment by the Customer of $550 inclusive of GST or 10% of the replacement cost, whichever is greater.

8.2 For the avoidance of doubt, the Customer will be liable for the full replacement cost of the Hire Equipment if the Hire Equipment is stolen and clause 8.1 is not complied with.
