2. Hire Charges
The Hire charge of the Equipment commences from the time the Equipment leaves the Company’s premises and terminates at the end of a previously agreed period of hire or when the Equipment is returned to the Company’s premises.
If we have agreed in writing to give you credit, you will pay in full within the time we specify or, if we do not specify a time, within 30 days of the date of our Invoice, unless otherwise specified. If credit has not been agreed you will pay us in full before you receive the equipment.
3. Delivery, Carriage, Installation and Operation Charges
Hire charges do not include carriage. You will pay us for any agreed charges for delivering and/or collecting, installing and/or operating equipment. Where we quote carriage charges, these include only for the time required to load or unload at the address or place you have specified. You will pay extra for any further time, or attendance, including any attempt by us to carry out your pre-arranged instructions for delivery and/or collection which is unsuccessful due to your acts or omissions, or failure to fully inform us of all relevant particulars.
When a delivery is made by a carrier you should check the goods for quantity and condition in the presence of the carrier. If there is a shortage or if any of the goods are in an unsatisfactory condition, the recipient must so endorse the carrier’s delivery document and must give a separate written notice to us within three days of delivery. If this is not observed, no claim in respect of shortage or damage will be entertained.
4. Breakdown Procedures and Accident Reporting
A breakdown or any unsatisfactory working of equipment must be immediately notified to us. The equipment must be returned to our premises for examination, under no circumstances must you repair or attempt to repair the equipment unless authorised by us. If you request us to attend and if the equipment is not defective you will pay the call-out charge notified to you.
5. Responsibility of the Hirer
You shall keep the equipment safe at all times until it is returned to us and shall make good any loss or damage to equipment due to any cause whatever except ordinary and careful use. Customers are advised to insure against the risk of accidental damage and theft.
6. Safety and Instructions

We will be entitled at any time if you break this contract or if you become bankrupt or if being a company, you commence to be wound up or if a receiver administrator is appointed in respect of all or part of your assets or undertaking or if you enter into any arrangement with your creditors to become the subject of a voluntary arrangement, to terminate this contract with immediate effect and to repossess any or all of the equipment. Such termination will not affect our right to recover from you any money due to us under this Contract or damages for breach of contract.
All times which we state or quote for delivery are approximate, and we will not be liable for any delays caused by circumstances beyond our control. We will not liable for any indirect loss, loss of business, profits, savings you expected to make, wasted money, wages, fees or expenses, due to late delivery, non-delivery, unsuitability, breakdown or stoppage of the goods or any part of them.
