I've been hiring utes for a day here and there about 5-6 times a year for the past few years to do odd jobs like picking up gumtree purchases, picking up renovation materials for works im doing on the house etc…
The rental is usually ~$55 for 24 hours for a single cab ute. Excess usually about $2-3k or you can purchase the waiver for $25 or so.
I've just booked one for tomorrow and horrified to be quoted over the phone an excess of $6000 and waiver at $42.
Ive just been googling for a stand alone excess policy and called 3 companies but none of them will cover a ute
Does anyone know a company that offers this at a reasonable price?
