Beach Buoy Rentals Cultus Lake Jet-Ski

So today 6 of us went to jet ski. We thought they required a driver license to be allowed so one of my friends used my license to write and sign the waiver. So basically 2 were the same and was my name.

Unfortunately, one of my friends collided with the another, the one that wrote my name on his waiver, by accident. They got too close and coincidentally turned into each other. They took away all of our $500 deposits, 6 of each. Total of $3000. Which is NOT the cost of the repair. Front plastic rubber piece fell off, the other had a rip on the bottom, but no hole. A brand new Yamaha VX110 is about $3500. It is fun but accidents do happen. We thought it was just them two going to be charged initially until the two guys swore at us saying "We're fckin taking all your money". Girls at the counter was rude and told us it was in waiver and sue them if we'd like "See you in the court".

What could I do?

That's quite a situation. So, you and your friends rented 6 jetskis, and 2 of them got damaged. However, they kept everyone's deposit. If that's right, then that seems shady as fuck. Were the deposits on credit card? I'd see if it's possible to reverse those charges.

Exact same thing happened to me and some friends in Vernon

They obviously want to make sure 100% that the deposits will cover the damages in question. Once they determine the value they will obviously refund the extra deposits taken

Always seems shady and a shitty deal for the people involved but in the end you're the ones who fucked up the machines.

speak to a manager or owner, they can't take everyones money since each contract was for the jet ski you were riding. If they won't do anything contact the credit card company and have the charges reversed

Yes the deposits was charged onto each one's credit card. They said that we went into a group and were all responsible for each other actions

seems shady as hell. if only 2 were in the collision, only 2 deposits would be kept until the damage is assessed and the difference refunded.

Hmm thats quite unfortunate. I have rented from that location a handful of times, nothing but good experiences. Then again I listen to their rules, and we don't crash their equipment, so there was no reason to deal with anything...

Keeping all the deposits does seem pretty unfair to everyone else in the group.

That's the dumbest fucking thing I've ever heard. I highly doubt you could even word a legal document that places liability on another person WITHOUT their consent and signature.

Ask the CC company to reverse charges ASAP. If they can't reverse then go see a lawyer. Spend the $250 for a quick consultation and don't let these fuckers get away with it.

Just coz you go as a group doesn't give them the right to take everyone's depoist. I would bring it up with your credit card company and explain the issue. Good idea to file with BBB as well. That's why I keep a Pre paid credit card with Cap One with only $200 max. Take all they want but they will only get $200 max lol.

+1 to credit card company for chargeback -- that's fucking bullshit that they'd collect everybody's deposit

Half these rental companies operate outside of the law and basically do whatever the hell they feel like. So many times I've made a reservation for a boat rental or jet ski rental and they take my credit card info for the deposit to hold the res, but don't credit that amount on the final bill (happened to me twice before i started catching on and making sure they credited me). I'd try calling up local news agencies and tell them how some fun on the water turned into the rental company collecting a damage deposit from everyone in the party, even those uninvolved. Also mention the way they treated you, the language/attitude with which they addressed you.



Reviews from google:
"Very rude and poor service. Expected someone to tell us our time was up. Got charged for the mins we went over. Told us to sue them if we like"


Seems like "sue us if you like" is their go-to phrase.

tat review was from me... made it up before posting the real deal on rs. wasnt sure if I should go thru with it before LOOL

But they did say if we go overtime, we will get charged. I dont get it because they left us a watch in the compartment and I took it out to wear it. And the guy told me to take if off as I might walk off with it. "Its hard ordering watches from China, it takes forever."

How the fck do we check the time more consciously if its not on my wrist...
