Rental Policies / Terms & Conditions

  1. I do hereby acknowledge receipt from the Lessor the equipment and/or articles identified on this Rental Contract. It is understood and agreed that the equipment listed on this Rental Contract is leased to me, the Lessee, by said Lessor. It is further understood that said property was personally inspected and examined by me and found to be in good working condition and repair and that I fully understand its proper use.
  2. Rental is charged for the time equipment is in Lessee’s possession. No allowance will be made for Sundays, holidays, overnight or time in transit, or for any period of time equipment may not be in actual use while in Lessee’s possession. All transportation or trucking charges are to be paid by the Lessee.
  3. In the event that the Lessee desires to extend this Rental Contract beyond the due date originally agreed upon and as written on this Rental Contract, Lessee agrees to notify the Lessor of said desire before said date and time to obtain Lessor’s approval and terms of said extension. In the absence of an agreed extension, rental rates will accrue at 1/6th of the daily rate for each additional hour, beyond the first 24 hour period, not to exceed, however, the rate listed for each 24 hour period.
  4. Lessee agrees that equipment usage is not to exceed 8 hours per 24 hour period or, 40 hours for a 7 day consecutive period. Any additional hours of usage exceeding the maximum allowed will be charged at 1/8th of the daily rental rate per each additional hour. All weekly or monthly rates are quoted contingent upon prompt payment. If credit is extended by Lessor, it is understood and agreed by the Lessee that if the full payment is not received within 30 days of termination of the rental period, or if collection action is necessary, such weekly or monthly rates will not apply, and the daily rates will be charged and accepted by the Lessee, regardless of the previous billing.
  5. Lessee understands that renting of equipment does not carry the option to purchase unless the Lessor and Lessee agree upon same prior to rental of such equipment. All said equipment shall remain personal property and title thereto shall remain-in Lessor exclusively. Lessee shall keep equipment free from any and all liens and claims and do or permit no act or thing whereby Lessor’s title or rights may be encumbered or impaired.
  6. This Rental Contract becomes effective immediately on the date and time listed hereon and remains in effect until the return of the merchandise and equipment and full payment for rental and other charges incurred under the terms of this Rental Contract have been made. Equipment returned after normal business hours does not constitute cause for termination of this Rental Contract, and therefore all the rates and terms of this Rental Contract remain in effect until the Lessee appears in person at Lessor’s place of business to return the equipment during normal business hours.
  7. An event of default shall occur if (a) any rental payment or any other amount owed by Lessee to Lessor is not paid when due, (b) Lessee fails to perform any other obligation of Lessee hereunder, (c) Lessee ceases doing business as a going concern, admits in writing its inability to pay its debts as they become due, is insolvent or makes an assignment for the benefit of creditors, (d) any property of Lessee is attached, (e) there is instituted by or against Lessee any proceeding under any bankruptcy, reorganization, arrangement, readjustment of debt, or insolvency law of any jurisdiction, or for the appointment of a receiver or trustee in respect to any of Lessee’s property, (f) Lessee reasonably deems itself insecure or the equipment in danger of misuse, neglect, seizure, confiscation, levy or attachment or (g) falsity of any representation of Lessee. Lessee warrants that he/she/it is solvent and able to pay for the equipment being rented hereunder in accordance with the payment terms.
  8. If any event of default occurs, all sums due and to become due to Lessor as rental payments and otherwise, shall at the option of Lessor, become payable immediately and Lessor may, without notice, demand, or liability to Lessee, enter into any premises of or under control of Lessee or any agent of Lessee where the equipment may be located or by Lessor is believed to be located, and repossess the equipment, disconnecting and separating the same from any other property and using all force necessary and permitted by applicable law to do so. Lessee waives any right to a hearing before repossession of the equipment. Upon any such repossession, this Rental Contract shall be terminated and be of no further force or effect, and Lessee hereby expressly waives all further rights to possession of the equipment and all claims for injuries suffered through or loss caused by such repossession. Nothing herein shall be construed to prevent Lessor from taking any other action at law or in equity to enforce performance of this Rental Contract and to recover damages for breach hereof. No remedy shall be exclusive of any other remedy, but each shall be cumulative and in addition to every other remedy. Neither this Rental Contract nor any interest therein is assignable or transferable by operation of law.
  9. The Lessee agrees that the Lessor may, at its own discretion, report as stolen all personal property not returned within the date listed as the "Date Due" on this Rental Contract, or, if conditions and circumstances indicate theft, before that time.
  10. Lessee agrees that said equipment will be used by the Lessee only at the job address designated on this Rental Contract for the stated period of time solely for the purpose for which said equipment was manufactured and intended. Where no address is specified the job address is taken to be the same as the Lessee’s home or mailing address. Equipment (except trailers) is not to be removed from the job address or home address of Lessee without the written consent of the Lessor, except while in transit directly to or from the Lessee’s premises. Rented property is not to be removed from the State of Washington without the written consent of the Lessor.
  11. As a service to our customers, Lessor may agree to pick up the equipment that is subject to this Rental Contract and return it to Lessor’s business location, provided that arrangements for delivery/pick-up have been agreed to by the Lessor, and Lessee agrees to pay the delivery/pick-up fee. Lessee shall be responsible for the equipment and this Rental Contract shall remain in full force and effect until such time as Lessor has picked up the equipment and removed it from its then present location. Although time charged for the rental fee shall cease when the Lessee notifies Lessor that the equipment is ready and available for pick-up, this notice does not terminate Lessee’s other obligations, including, but not limited to, the obligation to care for and protect the equipment from damage, theft, or other loss.
  12. Lessee agrees to indemnify and hold Lessor harmless from any liability whatsoever resulting from the use, maintenance and/or delivery of said equipment during the duration of this Rental Contract. Lessee and Lessor expressly understand that such indemnification shall extend to all claims, personal, commercial or otherwise by any person or persons, and that the same shall be operative without the necessity of Lessor first defending any such claim. Lessor does not warrant that the equipment is suited for the Lessee’s intended use. Lessor has no control over where the equipment is used, and hereby disclaims any OSHA requirements.
  13. Lessee shall not make any alterations, additions, or improvements to the equipment without the prior written consent of Lessor. All additions and improvements of whatsoever kind or nature made to the equipment shall belong to and become the property of Lessor upon the expiration or earlier termination of this Rental Contract.
  14. If the Lessor’s employees assist in loading or unloading the equipment, the Lessee agrees to assume the risk of, and hold the Lessor harmless for, any property damage or personal injuries.
  15. Lessee agrees to immediately discontinue the use of said equipment should same at any time become unsafe or in a state of disrepair, and will immediately notify the Lessor of said facts. If notice is not given within one hour after said failure of equipment, Lessee understands and agrees that the rental will be charged, unless arrangements are made to the contrary, and such arrangements are accepted in writing by the Lessor. Lessee is not authorized to incur for Lessor’s account any expense, or to expend any money in repairing said equipment. Lessee will not change or remove any insignia or lettering on the equipment and shall conspicuously identify each item of the equipment to indicate the Lessor’s ownership.
  16. Lessee understands that the use of equipment in the following circumstances is prohibited and will constitute a breach of Rental Contract: (a) Use for an illegal purpose or in an illegal manner, (b) Improper, unintended use or misuse, (c) Use by anyone other than the Lessee or his/her employees, without the Lessor’s written permission, (d) Use at any location other than the address furnished the Lessor without the Lessor’s written permission, except trailers.
  17. Lessee agrees to be absolute insurer of the listed equipment and merchandise during the duration of this Rental Contract, including fire and theft.
  18. Lessee acknowledges that the equipment being rented is not in faulty running condition and agrees to pay for any damage to or loss of equipment, as an insurer, regardless of the cause, except reasonable wear and tear, while equipment is out of the possession of the Lessor. Lessee agrees to pay the amount necessary to return the equipment to its former condition, including labor and parts. It is understood that repair or replacement does not relieve Lessee from the rental charges incurred. Accrued rental charges cannot be applied against the purchase or cost of repair of damaged or lost equipment. Equipment damaged beyond repair will be paid for at its current replacement cost.
  19. Lessor agrees, in consideration of an additional charge calculated on the gross rental charge, at the percentage rate listed on the front of this Rental Contract, to modify the responsibilities of the Lessee as stated in paragraph 18 pertaining to accidental damage to the equipment and accessories. Under this optional Equipment Protection Plan, Lessee is NOT responsible for damage or destruction of the rental equipment and accessories except as follows: (a) Damage by vandalism, malicious mischief, theft, loss and/or fire, (b) Damage resulting from overloading, exceeding rated capacity, misuse, abuse, improper servicing of equipment, or negligence, (c) Damage to tires and tubes caused by blowout, bruises, cuts, nails or other cause(s) inherent in the use of equipment, (d) Loss due to mysterious disappearance or wrongful conversion by a person entrusted with equipment, (e) Damage sustained in transport by vehicular accident or inadequate loading or securing of equipment, (f) Equipment Protection Plan is null and void if damage is caused by third party not associated or related to Lessee. All broken parts and damaged equipment must be returned in order to be eligible for Equipment Protection Plan coverage. Equipment ineligible for coverage is as follows: (a) party equipment and audio visual, (b) trailers, (c) tow bars and tow dollies. The Lessee understands that the Equipment Protection Plan is not insurance, and will not cover the loss of any rented item, explained or unexplained. Lessor reserves the right to refuse Equipment Protection Plan coverage.
  20. Lessee agrees to pay for equipment, at current replacement cost, in the event of theft, loss or mysterious disappearance, regardless of fault of Lessee.
  21. A cash deposit will be required at the time of rental except where prior terms have been established. Said deposit will be applied towards payment of any accrued rental and/or other charges upon termination of the rental period. Lessor’s credit terms for established accounts are Net 30, all other payments are due and payable upon the termination of the rental period. INTEREST at the periodic rate of 1 1/2% per month (18% per annum) will be charged on all past due invoices, with a minimum charge of $1.00 per month. Any complaint must be registered in writing with the Lessor within 15 days of receipt of the rental invoice.
  22. Lessee agrees to pay upon demand all of Lessor’s costs and expenses, including attorneys’ fees, legal expenses and collection costs incurred by Lessor in connection with collection of any amounts owed to the Lessor. Lessor may pay someone else to help enforce this Rental Contract, and Lessee agrees to pay the cost and expenses of such enforcement. Costs and expenses include but are not limited to collection agency fees which are not to exceed 50% of the principal balance, attorneys’ fees, legal expenses and/or costs, incurred by a law firm or attorney, or persons hired by a law firm or attorney, and their costs and expenses. Lessee agrees to pay costs and expenses whether or not a lawsuit is initiated, including, but not limited to, pre-lawsuit preparation, lawsuit, appeal, post-judgment collection or enforcement for bankruptcy proceedings. In the event that a lawsuit is commenced, Lessee waives the right to a jury trial on any or all issues.
