Reservation and Rental Procedures
Upon receipt of Reservation request by Renter, Owner should respond in a timely fashion.

Both Parties shall then be required to execute a Reservation Agreement that reflects the Terms of the Agreement between them and acknowledges A Local Cart’s supporting role in the Transaction. Through the User dashboard, Renter will receive the address for the drop-off of the Rental.
Prior to delivery you are required to inspect golf cart/LSV and perform any required maintenance (i.e. ensuring fuel/battery fluid, and air-pressure levels are acceptable). We require that you deliver the golf cart/LSV and all rented equipment to the address/drop-off point you have agreed to and arrive on-time.

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 golf cart/LSV, including operation of any equipment, including anti-theft devices, and any other instructions particular to the golf cart/LSV being rented. Be sure to re-state maintenance (i.e. charging schedule) 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 A Local Cart 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, A Local Cart 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.

At the time your golf cart/LSV 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 A Local Cart.
