It is with confidence that we extend a program designed to bring you increased protection. Our LDW Assurance plan can provide practical protection that keeps you on track and worry free.
Loss Damage Waiver (LDW) Assurance Plan Terms and Conditions:
1) CUSTOMER'S GENERAL RESPONSIBILITY
Under the Atlas Copco Rental's Rental Agreement (Agreement), the Customer renting the Equipment (as that term is defined in the Rental Agreement) is responsible to Atlas Copco Rental for any loss or damage to the Equipment and for its return in the same condition in which received, except for ordinary wear. Such responsibility shall amount to the replacement or repair cost of the Equipment at the time it is lost or damaged, plus an administrative fee and Atlas Copco Rental related losses, such as, but not limited to, loss of use, appraisal fees or costs of recovery. In the event that the Customer is responsible for damage to the Equipment, such Equipment may be repaired either by Atlas Copco Rental or a repairer of Atlas Copco Rental's choosing. The cost of labor for such repairs shall be the then prevailing hourly rate for labor at the repair facility where repairs are effectuated. The Customer will be charged for parts at the prevailing list price established by the manufacturer or supplier involved or as charged to Atlas Copco Rental by the supplier or repair facility.
2) PROOF OF INSURANCE
As a precondition of renting Equipment from Atlas Copco Rental, Customer must produce evidence of insurance in accordance with the Rental Agreement, or Customer shall be required to purchase the LDW Assurance Plan, which is NOT INSURANCE. The charge for the LDW Assurance Plan shall be equal to 14 percent of the rental amount.
If the Customer purchases the LDW Assurance Plan, and if the Equipment is used in compliance with this plan, then Atlas Copco Rental agrees to waive, to the extent specified herein and in the Rental Agreement, its right to hold Customer liable for any damages greater than 25 percent of the Equipment's replacement cost.

Customer will cooperate fully with Atlas Copco Rental and/or its insurer(s) in the prosecution of those rights and will neither take nor permit any action to prejudice Atlas Copco Rental's rights with respect thereto.
