No assurances are given that any extension will be granted. Goods must be available for return no later than the day after the rental term ends, otherwise customer will be automatically charged by the day.

It is the responsibility of the Hirer to check all Hire Goods immediately on delivery and to report any damages, faults, shortages or discrepancies to ourselves on the day of collection/ delivery. If there are any problems/ damages etc during the term of rental, we must be informed immediately in writing.

The Hirer is responsible for the Hire goods as soon as they collect said goods or as soon as delivery has been made. The deposit, less the replacement cost of breakages or losses, is returned only after authorised staff have checked the equipment (usually a day or two but in exceptional circumstances up to a week). If the Hire goods are returned in damaged, and/or defective state except where due to fair wear and tear and/ or an inherent fault in the Hire goods the Hirer shall be liable to pay for the cost (including all spare parts and labour) of any repair required to return to hire goods to a condition fit for re hire.

The Hirer agrees to take adequate and proper measures to protect the hire goods from theft, damage and / or other risks; if the goods are lost or stolen the Hirer will be charged the full purchase price. Risk in the hire goods will not pass back to ourselves from the Hirer until the hire goods are back in the physical procession of ourselves. This shall apply even if we have agreed to cease charging the rental.

If the deposit is not sufficient to cover these costs the Hirer is liable for the balance.

All equipment is dispatched clean and ready to use. The hire charges are based on the assumption that the equipment will be returned to us clean and dry. On no account should scouring pads or abrasive powders be used which could result in permanent damage to the equipment. If you wish to send back soiled equipment you do so on the understanding that a cleaning charge will be levied. The cost of cleaning service is 20% of the hire charge.

In the event of breakdown, we shall endeavour to repair/ replace the item with similar. If we cannot do this allowance will be made in relation to the rental to the Hirer for any non use of the hire goods due to breakdown on condition that the customer informs the company as soon as practicable of the breakdown. For example if a Bain marie is on hire at £100 for one months rental and there is a breakdown after two weeks and we cannot replace it with similar, a 50% refund will be made.

The Hirer shall not remove any labels from and / or interfere with the hire goods, their working mechanisms or any other parts of them and take reasonable care of the hire goods and only use them for their proper purpose in a safe and correct manner. The customer must not repair or attempt to repair the hire goods unless authorised to do so in writing by ourselves
