Have you ever rented a car while on vacation and returned it only to be held liable for damages/scratches/dents that were already there? Were you forced to pay for a scratch or minor dent that wasn’t noted on the check-out list? That happened to me on a Miami trip years ago. I hated writing that check (lol) but I had to because I had no proof that the scratch was already there when I rented the car.
If you don’t opt for the extra insurance they offer you’ll be held liable for those minor damages. You’ll also have to pay for the number of days the car is out of rental service. Ever wondered if there’s an app that offers protection from this racket? I have fabulous news…there’s an app for that and it’s called ‘Record 360!’
The ‘Record 360’ app is long overdue (lol) we needed this fab app years ago. After downloading the app (it’s available for iOS and Android devices) you open it and scan a UPC code/VIN or enter your own description. Then you start recording video of the property or taking pictures. As your capturing the video/images you can highlight damage with the cool single touch notation feature. After you’ve made all of your notations your can choose to upload your video to the cloud for safe storage.
Watch the video below to see how this fabulous app works.
What we love about this app:
- User friendly. The app is very easy to use and to document property condition through video or photographs.
- Proof positive. Provides a time stamped, geo-tagged record of property at the time of exchange. If needed this provides in-disputable evidence that you received the property in said condition.
- Cloud storage. Your video is uploaded and safely stored in a cloud storage system for easy retrieval.
‘Record 360’ is a must have app for anyone that rents a car/vacation home or shares a car/home/apartment. I’ve also used it to document valuables in my home when I’ve had contractors working when I’m away. It’s also our favorite kind of app…it’s FREE! For more information please visit www.Record360.com. Download the app today and start protecting yourself and your wallet.
