“DW” is the Damage Waiver charge. This is an optional, nonrefundable fee that covers minor accidental damage. This is not a loss or negligence waiver, it gives EventRent some flexibility when dealing with tricky situations after the party is over. The damage waiver fee allows EventRent to charge only the minimum for damaged items of small quantities, and the option not to charge for the loss of one or two small items, such as flatware. If the client returns damaged items and we determine the client wasn’t being negligent, then the client isn’t charged at all. Accidental damage does not include burns or tears in linens, or other large non-repairable damages. Damage waiver does not apply to all items such as tents/canopies, generators, special order items and does not cover loss or theft.
