Yes. UHEI requires a Non Refundable Deposit of $10K per hoist car, and 50% of the optional items.
Is there any retainage?
UHEI does not allow retainage to be held from their payments.
Is there a minimal rental?
The minimal rental is established within the rental agreement.
Do I have to clean the hoist?
We understand the hoist is used on a construction site and will become dirty. However, excessive concrete splatter, blowouts, and dumping of concrete must be cleared off. UHEI at the end of the contract, and upon receiving the equipment at our yard, will generate an invoice of what it will cost to return the equipment to rentable condition. It will be deducted from the Non-Refundable Deposit.
Do I have to do any maintenance on the hoist?
