What is a timestamped photo/video?
A timestamped photo/video refers to pictures and/or videos of your item with proof of the content being created on a specific date. For example, if you’re lending an item to a renter on March 22nd, you must create timestamped photos and/or a timestamped video on March 21st showing the current condition of your item and any pre-existing damage that may be present before lending it.
The best way to provide a “timestamp” is to write the current date on a piece of paper and include it in each picture or show it at the beginning of a one-take video. Timestamped photos/videos are necessary in order to solve damaged item claims fairly and accurately.
