California Cycles Classy Cycles - Panama City Beach Florida RENTED A SCOOTER WITH COVERAGE GOT INTO A SMALL ACCIDENT WITH MINOR DAMAGE PAID A HUGE AMOUNT FOR REPAIR Panama City Beach, Florida
We rented 3 scooters,for 3 different people, with 3 different payments. We each paid $78.48 total for the rental including the $8 coverage. There was a $100 deposit. Its my first time driving one and took me sometime to get used to, but unfortunately I did get into a small accident where I fell off the scooter. The left side front nose had a 1 inch scratch off
the paint and also the bottom pan. After refilling all scooters on gas, we returned all of them at the right time( we only rented them for 8 hours.)
We waited 30 minutes at the lot to be served, waited over 1 hour for the manager Mike to show up and take 1 picture of the damage. [continued below]....
The manager Mike wrote me an estimate repair of $110 for the bottom pan repair, $186 for the front nose repair and $65 for the labor cost which equals to $361 also some bogus $27 charge which was not specified, so total of $388. Mike advised me it was going to cost me $300 for the damage, I paid for the damage with my debit card and I accepted all responsibilities for it. This doesnt seen fair for that amount to be charged since I though thats what the $8 coverage and the $100 deposit was for. I will never rent anything from this place again, BE AWARE!!!!
