UBER DRIVERS WHO RENT FROM LION CITY RENTALS, THIS IS WHAT HAPPENS WHEN U GET INTO AN ACCIDENT
Submitted by farhan on Mon, 01/08/2016 - 11:14am


Vehicle : - Rental Car, Nissan Sylphy (white color)
Rental Company: - Lion City Rentals LCR
Workshop : - World Auto Pte Ltd (appointed workshop by LCR)

• 3-car chain accident along AYE, my vehicle being the last vehicle of the chain … means I am liable for all claims. Followed the procedure, report to World Auto Pte Ltd, make accident report & leave the vehicle there.

• Meanwhile I sent pictures of the damages to outside garage for an estimate, $800/- was the quote from outside garage & require 2 days to repair.

• World Auto have carry out their damage access & informed me the next day, their quotation was $2,200/-, repair period a week. I do not agree with their quote & wish to shift the car to an outside garage. World Auto said no "in their so-call professional way". I stop any further discussion with this workshop, give up. I approach LCR, hoping to get their permission.

• Once I reach LCR office & relate the whole incident, they shown me a section of my Rental Contract. Yes .. it is in black & white, I have signed & now LL

• Next … LCR confirm they do not allow their vehicle to be fixed by other workshop, full stop. Must be through this costly World Auto workshop.

• LCR negotiated on my behalf with World Auto workshop for a lower $1,800/- deal. The repair period is still a week, nothing can be faster. (final & no more bargain)

• During the entire repair period, I still have to pay my daily rental ($70 x 7 = $490) in cash, since Uber can no longer offset it from my weekly earnings. In the end, i gave LCR official notice to return vehicle instead.

• I also need to pay up Third Party Access Claims $2,140/-

I am sharing my experience with all Uber drivers who have rented their vehicle with LCR.

In the end, the seamless coordination between LCR & World Auto is flawless & I'm left with $4,556/- out of pocket.

Checkout, mb_car_rentals on Carousell. Heard they got one of the cheapest rates in town and are continuing to purchase more vehicles. Pretty sure they won't rip you off like LCR.

That is the problem with people here who don't read the forum on past posts before acting upon it. Many members here shared past experience about LCR and World Auto and still many turns deaf ears.. Sian

TS, sorry to hear your misfortune. This is one of the constant worry that I have when I was driving a LCR car. I only drove for 5 months, making a total of $5.5k after deducting all expenses. One accident will be enough to wipe out all the earnings.

The other worry is mechanical problems with the car. Luckily for me, I did not have to face any of the 2 problems.

BTW, excess for commercial car insurance is always high. Even for my own car, the excess is $1,500.

TS is the last car in the chain collision. So it is liable for the damage to the cars in front.

Believed the cars in front will claim insurance. No way for TS to quietly do the repair outside without informing LCR.
