In this capacity Users agree that Riders Share shall be appointed Administrative Agent as further set forth here. Riders Share, working with trusted third parties (including Stripe and insurance providers) shall act as Agent for Users with regards to processing Owner Payments and assisting in the Insurance process.

 

Riders Share Obligations

Our responsibility is to maintain the Services and Platform and provide administrative Services to ensure their continued operation and quality of User experience. For provision of this Platform, Administrative Services, and User Accounts, Riders Share charges transactional fees equivalent to 25% of the transactions between Users before Rental fees are distributed to Owners. Fees for additional Services shall be charged as necessary on terms communicated to Users prior to transactions/

 

Reservation and Rental Procedures

Upon receipt of Reservation request by Renter, Owner should respond in a timely fashion. In the event Reservation request does not include all required or requested information, Riders Share requires that you contact Renter, and ensure that the Reservation Agreement reflects the terms under which the Parties might agree to the Reservation, in compliance with the Terms and Conditions of the Riders Share Service.

 

Both Parties shall then be required to execute a Reservation Agreement that reflects the Terms of the Agreement between them and acknowledges Riders Share’s supporting role in the Transaction. Through the User dashboard, Renter will receive the address for the drop-off of the Rental.

 

Prior to Pick-up you are required to inspect motorcycle and perform any required maintenance (i.e. ensuring fuel, fluid, chain, and air-pressure levels are acceptable). We require that you deliver the motorcycle and all rented gear to the address/drop-off point you have selected and arrive on-time.

 

Pick-up

At the time of pick-up, Owner shall be responsible for confirming all terms of the reservation, including identity of the Renter and designated passengers. You shall be responsible for receiving a copy of Renters valid motorcycle license. Please take a picture of it next to your vehicle’s odometer. If Renter fails to present a valid license, you should not continue with the drop-off. The Reservation period should NOT commence to the Rental or Trip Period.

 

If Renter DOES present a valid license and all terms of the reservation are otherwise confirmed, please instruct Renter on the basics of operation SPECIFIC to your motorcycle, including operation of the steering wheel lock, and any other instructions particular to the motorcycle being rented. Be sure to re-state maintenance requirements during the Rental period, and be sure Renter understands them.

 

During this period, a booked Reservation shall NOT have converted into a Rental unless all conditions precedent have been performed, meaning terms of your Reservation Agreement, and Riders Share terms are satisfied. As a practical matter, this means if you detect any obvious or likely possibility of Renter engaging in Prohibited Activities as listed in the Renters Terms, Riders Share permits you to make a judgement call. Intoxication or lack of skill sufficient to safely operate the vehicle should be apparent. Understand that no liability will attach to Owner for negligent entrustment if apparent impediments to safe operation are apparent. However, do understand that Renter may have recourse through the Administrative Terms, the Parties have accepted to submit to an informal dispute resolution process. Owner will still be paid their reservation fee; however, Riders Share reserves the right to review your Owner account if a pattern of unwarranted cancellations and unfavorable disputes is detected.

 

If no obvious violations of Riders Share terms, or your Reservation Agreement between Renter and Owner are detected, please submit a photo of Renter’s valid license next to the odometer, your submission of the photo shall be time-stamped commencing the Rental or Trip period.

 

Drop-off

At the time your motorcycle is returned by sure to document any perceived damage to the vehicle beyond wear and tear, additionally please ask the Renter how the Rental went. Make note of any problems or complaints they may have had and, to the extent possible ensure any wear and tear or conditions presented are remedied before completing a subsequent reservation through Riders Share.

 

Accidents or Damage

If at any time during the Rental period the Renter reports any damage or accident to you, be sure to report them via the insurance claims submission form in the booking details page. If practicable, you may take possession of your vehicle before the end of the Rental period in the event of an accident or equipment failure. Please advise Renter to immediately initiate the Insurance claim process if necessary. Riders Share is not liable for any loss revenue from scheduled rentals or loss personal usage of the motorcycle resulting from accident, damage, recovery or theft of the vehicle.

 

If you detect damage or receive any fines or tickets after drop-off, please use tools or procedures as Riders Share may offer in order to be reimbursed as agreed. Pursuant to Riders Share’s Payment and Administrative terms, you may be required to provide materials prior to any reimbursement being processed or having Renters Payment Method charged.
