    1. Insurance

    The hirer is responsible for obtaining adequate insurance in respect of both their event and the equipment which has been provided by the company. The hirer of the marquee will be responsible and liable for any damages caused.

    The company offers a damage waiver in respect of the equipment which it provides. The damage waiver is equivalent to 6% of the hire charges. Should the hirer agree to the damage waiver then they will have no liability in respect of any accidental damage caused to the equipment.

    1. Health & Safety

    Fire performers and patio heaters are not suitable to be used inside the marquee as both are potential fire hazards when coming in contact with flammable material (roof, lining, and marquee). The company have advised you of the risks and if you decide to ignore this, you do so at your own risk.

    Please make sure for the safety of your guests fire extinguishers are nearby and cords are not running across the marquee which may cause your guests to trip over.

    1. Site Conditions

    The company will not be responsible for damage to underground services buried beneath the surface that they have not been made aware of when erecting the equipment, i.e. pipes, drains and cables. The hire charge includes the erection and removal of the equipment but does not include making good or repairs to the site.

    The hirer or representative should be available to check the equipment and to discuss the location of the equipment. If no one is available, we will erect the equipment in a way and location we see as suitable. Where a power point is needed a suitable 240 volts/16-amp power point is needed within 15 meters of the equipment and the hirer is fully responsible for the suitability and reliability of the supply.

    The company reserves the right to vary the hire rate in the event of increase in the cost of labour, materials or transport. Special hire rates will be payable to the company for delivery, installation or use of the equipment on sites which do not conform to the requirements of the company.

    1. Hire Conditions

    The hire of the equipment commences from when the equipment arrives on site to when it is removed. Unless stated in writing charges do not include the attendance of employees except when erecting and dismantling. The employees are not obliged to do any more then erect and dismantle the equipment. The hirer will be liable for any additional costs due to extra work or equipment needed due to unforeseen circumstances. This will include delay due to subcontractors or clients who have not removed or installed additional equipment.

    1. Hirer Responsibilities

    The hirer is responsible for signing a completed safety checklist after consultation with a company representative once the marquee has been installed and in signing this checklist agree to abide by any instructions therein. If the hirer is not present to sign the safety checklist two company representatives will do this on their behalf and a copy will be left for the hirer’s reference. The hirer shall not use cooking equipment, lighting or electrical appliances or decorate the interior/exterior of the marquee without prior consent from the company. Any damage/soiling resulting in such use that may require repair or cleaning will be charged to the hirer.
