Beechfield Rental Agreement
These terms are deemed accepted by the Renter upon delivery of the rented product to the Renter.
All rentals are charged at a weekly rate (7 days). The initial rental period is charged in advance. A refundable deposit may be required on some products. The Renter will be advised of this prior to their rental. The Renter shall keep and maintain the rented equipment during the terms of the rental at his/her own cost and expense. Rental products can only be used within the Republic of Ireland. It is not possible to take rental products on airplanes. It is agreed that the Renter will keep the equipment in a good state of repair, with normal wear and tear accepted. Beechfield Rentals may terminate this agreement immediately upon the failure of Renter to make rental payments when due, or upon Renter filling for protection from creditors in any court of competent jurisdiction.
It is possible for the Renter to extend the rental period. Prior to the end of a rental period, Beechfield Rentals will send an email and text message asking if the Renter would like to extend or return the product. If the Renter opts to extend, the rental will be extended for one week. This process will repeat until the Renter opts to return. When the Renter opts to return, Beechfield Rentals will call to arrange a collection. Once the product is received by Beechfield Rentals, the rental is marked complete. Please note, rental text messages come from our SMS provider and will display a +44 prefix.
If the Renter does not respond to the emails or messages and does not return the rental as per the contracted term, an automatic one week extension will be applied. This process will repeat until the product is received by Beechfield Rentals. If a Renter opts to return the rental but does not respond to the calls to arrange the collection, a one week extension will be applied until the product is received by Beechfield Rentals.
If the rental product is not returned to Beechfield Rentals on the agreed date, it will be seen that the Renter will have extended the rental period and the Renter will automatically be charged for an additional week. Beechfield Rentals will continue to charge weekly until the rental product is returned to us.
