“You”, “your” and “hirer” means the customer identified in the quotation or invoice.
1.1 These terms apply to the hire of ‘Lilli’ the caravan and other equipment by any person (“hirer”) from The Cute Caravan Company (2017) Ltd – (Company no. 4465121) (“The Cute Caravan Company”).
1.2 These terms override and are in substitution for any terms stipulated or referred to in writing or orally by the hirer.
1.3 Nobody claiming to act on The Cute Caravan Company’s behalf is authorised to waive or change these terms orally. Waivers or changes are effective only if made in writing and signed on The Cute Caravan Company’s behalf.
2. Quotations and confirmation of bookings
2.1 We will send you a quotation by email or in writing. We reserve the right to amend our quotation up to the day of the hirer’s booking.
2.2 You are requested to respond straight away to secure your booking.
3. Fees and payment
3.1 A booking fee (“Booking Fee/deposit”) of 30% of the total hire cost (excluding the bond) is payable, within 7 days, when TCCC accepts the hirer’s booking or when the hirer accepts TCCC quote for a booking (whichever is the earlier).
3.2 The balance of the charges due to The Cute Caravan Company are payable 30 days before the date of hire.
3.3 A bond may be requested by TCCC on top of the total hire cost. The bond may be used by The Cute Caravan Company to pay for missing items or any damage to the caravan and/or equipment during hireage. This includes all glassware and all other items required for the hiring, as well as the caravan and all vehicles needed for the hire period. Replacement of the damaged or missing goods is based on current retail value or the cost to remake/fix the broken item or items. There may be an additional fee to pay if the replacement cost is more than the bond. Please ask if you need further clarification prior to making your booking.
3.4 The hirer is required to pay The Cute Caravan Company on demand for:
(a) any equipment which are not made available for collection or which are not returned by the due date;
(b) the cost of repairing damage to the caravan or other pieces of equipment which occurred during the hire period
(c) the cost of replacing pieces of equipment or the caravan which are damaged, destroyed, lost or otherwise require replacement as a result of damage or loss which occurs during the period of hire, or while the caravan and/or other pieces of equipment are in the hirer’s care, provided that where the damage or loss is covered by insurance arranged through The Cute Caravan Company the maximum liability of the hirer for the caravan and other pieces of equipment which are lost, damaged beyond repair or destroyed will be the insurance excess on The Cute Caravan Company’s policy.
3.5 The failure of either party to enforce any provision of this agreement shall not be construed as a waiver of limitation of that party’s right to subsequently enforce and compel strict compliance with every provision of this agreement. Failure to pay will incur interest and legal fees if necessary. TCCC reserves the right to terminate the hiring at any stage in the event of the client failing to comply with any of these “Terms and Conditions”, or committing any act or omission which in the opinion of TCCC and/or its staff prejudices its rights, to the safety of staff and/or any equipment.
