Disclaimers and Information
HIRE TRIAL PERIOD
Some of our hire items are offered on a week trial basis where one weeks hire is paid and the option given to extend to a long term hire plan ( 3 months or longer) at the end of the week trial. If the long term option is taken after the paid week trial period, we will deduct the week paid off the long term hire price. This prevents you paying for the full long term period before trialing the item as some products may not be suitable for your needs and our hire is non refundable for early return.
Please read our conditions of hire below. We would appreciate that you treat our hire equipment as if it was your own.
Please avoid leaving items stored in direct sunlight for long periods of time which may cause fading.
Avoid storing any items that have been wet in the boot of the car or folded as this can cause mould to grow.
If you must wash any part of the product, please only spot wash or if the item is machine washable, avoid washing capsule liners or similar with towels or nappies that may produce fluff as this is a very time consuming excerisise for us to remove and the $10 cleaning charge will apply if the product is returned in this condition.
All our items are washed and sanitised after every hire so there is no need to clean your item unless it is exccesively dirty ie: food, animal hair, excessive fluff, sand, dirt etc. In this case the $10 cleaning charge will apply.
If harness or materials are returned mouldy due to poor care of the item, these parts will be charged at replacement cost for the part effected, as mould spores can do irreversable damage to materials.
Any extras supplied with your hire including anchor bolts, gated buckles, extention straps, comfort inserts, weather covers etc, must be returned with
the hire. Items will remain on hire and hire charges will be applicable until all extras have been returned.
