a. Health and safety
Delivery and collection services are NOT included in the Hire Charge set out on this website. A delivery and or collection charge “at cost” (not Saturdays) is calculated depending on distance. Delivery services are from door to door and are based on our driver having unencumbered access to a convenient ground floor location on firm ground. An extra charge will be made if hired items have to be carried over any distance greater than 10 metres. Delivery drivers do not, and will not carry hired items up or down stairs. You should therefore ensure you or your representative are available and at the delivery address. Wasted journeys deriving from non-attendance will be charged for. Deliveries to third parties or unoccupied premises are made entirely at your sole risk and will not be delivered unless authorisation is received in writing, fax or e-mail. In the case of Collection, all goods should be checked by you, re-boxed as appropriate and ready for immediate kerbside loading.
Hire equipment will be available for collection the day prior to the event at a convenient time arranged and specified by us.
Should delivery be arranged we will contact the telephone numbers provided by you. Please therefore ensure that your contact telephone numbers are answered. We will telephone you and advise that our driver is en route, not to arrange a time convenient to you.
If access to collecting the hired equipment is denied, blocked, or impassable, a wasted collection journey will be automatically charged, or waiting time charged to your invoice. Any parking tickets issued to vehicles whilst executing a delivery or collection will be charged to you whilst we appeal that issue. Any alternative collection arrangements must be made in writing and confirmed by our office.
All deliveries and collection that are off the public highway or encounter access problems, or delays in excess of 30 delivery minutes are charged at £12.50 per quarter hour of part thereof in addition to our standard delivery and collection rates. If you hire a porter service it is assumed that routes to deliver via basements and staircases are easily negotiable, those that are not incur £12.50 per quarter hour of part thereof in addition to your porter hire for both driver and porter.
Goods will be available for the collection or delivery by us (if delivery is booked) up to 48hrs before the event and must be returned (or collected if booked) no later than one day after. For weekend events, hired goods will be available on Thursday/Friday and must be returned without fail on the following Monday.
