We can't count the number
of times when a customer has caused major damage on a repair because they did
not have the proper tools to do the job. Well this is about to change. EI has
purchased over 300 Unimog and Pinzgauer specialty tools for our tool rental
1. We are trying to make
the program as straight forward as possible. As a user of the tool you have the
right to either rent the tool or purchase the tool outright.
2. In general we are
renting the tool for 10-20% of the cost of the new tool. At the time that you
rent the tool, you will be charged the cost of the tool. This will be your
security deposit (less tool rental fee) if you return the tool within the
specified time frame. If you decide that you would like to add the tool to your
personal collection, simply notify EI that you will be keeping the tool so that
we can put a replacement into the rental program.
3. We are also putting
together small tool sets needed to perform specific jobs. For example on the
Unimog 404 hub seal replacement we will be supplying the hub nut wrench, wheel
flange puller, seal setting tool, and wheel flange setting tool.
4. The customer is
responsible to pay the outbound shipping as well as the return shipping when
finished with the tool. Insure the tool for the full cost of the tool when
shipping back to EI. Some of the tooling will come in specific tool
"crates" the tools are to be returned in the same crate.
5. Keep in mind that other
members of our community may be waiting on the tool that you currently have, so
use the tool and return it promptly. If you run into a problem, please let EI
know so that we can help you work through it.
6. Proper care and usage
is important. You are responsible for the usage of the tool. Upon receiving the
tool thoroughly inspect the tool for damage. If found, do NOT use the tool and
contact EI ASAP. If you are not familiar with how to use the tool, refer to the
tools manual or the repair manual, for the proper usage. You can always ask EI
for further instruction.
