All charges are payable on demand. Cancellation charges for any cancelled Contract shall be levied based on the following timescales unless otherwise agreed: (a) orders cancelled earlier than fourteen days of the start of the hire – 50% of the contract value (We will then retain this as credit on your account that can be used against another hire within 12 months of the original job. After 12 months this credit will be forfeited. The original time frame of 12 months stands even if the second event is subsequently cancelled. (b) orders cancelled within 14 days of the hire start date will still be liable for 100% of the contract value. If any payment is not made when due, we will be entitled to interest on the amount that is overdue at four per cent above the prevailing base rate of Barclays Bank PLC calculated on a daily basis. This will be without prejudice to any other rights or remedies we may have. You will also pay to us any charges we reasonably incur in the recovery from you of money or Equipment. We reserve the right to vary the hire charges by giving you not less than thirty (30) days prior written (including electronic mail) notice.

You should satisfy yourself on delivery of the suitability of the Equipment and that your requirements will be fulfilled by the Equipment recommended prior to accepting the contract. Time shall not be of the essence in relation to delivery or collection. Dates or times quoted by us are estimates only and not guaranteed. Where we have agreed to position the Equipment in a specific location you must have an authorised representative available at the time of delivery to instruct us regarding that position. In the event you are unable or opt not to receive all the Equipment immediately upon its arrival on site you will be responsible for any standing charges, abortive transport or demurrage charges or any other consequential loss howsoever arising.

Equipment supplied on a hire only basis (i.e. not set-out and/or laid) will be delivered to one central depot or site. In such cases it is your responsibility to unload and reload when finished with it, from one such central point. Should it be necessary to deliver or collect Equipment on a hire only basis from more than one location, we will charge extra for such activities. Equipment which you unload is to be removed from the vehicle safely and not thrown to the ground.
