I'm trying to decide if I should use Touchstay or create a PDF and have it available online? Anyone found that Touchstay is worth the fees? I didn't find it that user friendly to get started. If anyone has recommendations, please let me know?
Also, is there anyway to do the renter paperwork online or does it all have to be printed? I would think that Outdoorsy would have an app for both things.
I haven't any experience with Touchstay, but we use the Outdoorsy Pro app (geared toward owners), and that allows for paperless contracts.
You need to take ten or more pictures (I highly suggest more) before clicking "begin key exchange". Once you have those pics, click on "begin key exchange" and check the required boxes, then click "send to renter". Then, you e-sign on your side.
It then sends a notice to your renters for them to add their own pictures and sign on their side.
At the end of the trip, you take 10+ pictures and do the "return rental" (or whatever it's called). However!! If you have any add-ons that were not included up front and the renter has to pay for after their stay, make sure to do that from a laptop or PC. In my experience, the app only allows me to "file a claim." There are more times than not that I'm not filing a claim (something you would do if, let's say, a renter destroyed your awning) I'm only charging them (from their security deposit) for a black & grey water dump.
I also keep all pictures I've taken in a Drive folder for my own records. I hope this helps! 🙂
