ADDENDUM TO RENTAL AND SERVICE AGREEMENT
RENTAL PROTECTION PLAN TERMS

The Rental Protection Plan (“RPP”) is an optional product described in this addendum (the “Addendum”) that modifies certain terms of the Rental and Service Agreement entered into between United and Customer. The definitions set forth in Section 1 of the Rental and Service Terms incorporated into the Rental and Service Agreement apply to this Addendum.

NOTICE:

FOR ALL RENTALS OF EQUIPMENT NOT LICENSED FOR ROAD USE, YOU MUST EITHER SHOW PROOF OF PROPERTY INSURANCE IN ACCORDANCE WITH SECTION 21 OF THE RENTAL AND SERVICE TERMS, OR PURCHASE THE RENTAL PROTECTION PLAN. THE PURCHASE OF THE RENTAL PROTECTION PLAN FOR RENTALS OF EQUIPMENT IS NOT MANDATORY AND MAY BE DECLINED IF YOU HAVE PROOF OF INSURANCE AS REQUIRED BY SECTION 21 OF THE RENTAL AND SERVICE TERMS.

RPP IS NOT INSURANCE. RPP IS AVAILABLE TO CUSTOMERS IN CONNECTION WITH THE RENTAL OF EQUIPMENT FROM UNITED AND MUST BE EXECUTED SIMULTANEOUSLY WITH A RENTAL AND SERVICE AGREEMENT.

FOR AN ADDITIONAL CHARGE, RPP OFFERS A DAMAGE WAIVER TO LIMIT YOUR FINANCIAL RESPONSIBILITY FOR DAMAGE TO, OR THEFT OF, THE EQUIPMENT. BEFORE DECIDING WHETHER TO PURCHASE THE DAMAGE WAIVER. YOU MAY WISH TO DETERMINE WHETHER YOUR OWN INSURANCE COVERAGE AFFORDS YOU COVERAGE FOR DAMAGE TO OR THEFT OF THE EQUIPMENT AND THE AMOUNT OF THE DEDUCTIBLE UNDER YOUR OWN INSURANCE COVERAGE. READ THIS ADDENDUM CAREFULLY BEFORE SIGNING.
