As an owner of ShareGrid, confirming the identity of the person picking up your gear is a crucial security measure. Here's how to ensure the ID verification process is thorough and compliant:

  1. Verify Government-Issued ID: Always check the renter's government-issued ID at the time of gear pickup. Ensure that the name on the ID matches the name listed in the rental conversation thread on ShareGrid. This step is vital to verify that you hand the equipment to the correct individual.

  2. Handling Authorized Person: If the renter has designated an Authorized Person to pick up or drop off the equipment, it's your responsibility as the owner to verify this person's ID. Make sure the name provided matches the one on the rental conversation thread. This is a crucial step in maintaining the security and integrity of the transaction.

Do Not Photograph the ID: Please refrain from taking photos of the renter's or authorized person's ID. ShareGrid keeps a copy of each member's ID on file, which was collected during the account sign-up process. This protocol is part of our efforts to maintain a safe and secure platform.
