    Do rental companies usually charge extra?

    I got a call today from a friend, who needed me to come help up-right a John Deere loader that rolled onto its side.

    I rotated it a little with my winch, then just hooked onto it with a chain and used the Crew Cab to pull it back onto its tires. It only suffered a broken sidemarker light lense and some leaking fluids. Think they'll notice?

    (Sorry I didnt have my camera with me)

    Clean off the fluid and see if you can get a replacement side marker light my buddy took a bobcat back with some small damage, I think he knocked a light around and a couple of hydralic hoses came off the clamp they were on, He figured no big deal. It cost him a pretty penny to get it all fixed at the rental places rates

    Exactly. Fix it first if possible.
