General (Same Day) Hire Terms and Conditions (B2B)
Designed for the hire of a range of different product types, these General (Same Day) Hire Terms and Conditions (B2B) cover a range of important points to allow for smooth and efficient transactions between hire businesses and their customers. This template is designed for use in situations where products are hired at the point of sale with no advance booking required.
This template is for use only where the hire business’ customer does not act as a “consumer” in relation to the hire. However, where the customer of the hire business is acting as a consumer, we have provided an accompanying alternative set of terms, the General (Same Day) Hire Terms and Conditions (B2C). “Consumer” is defined in the Consumer Rights Act 2015 as an individual who receives services for his/her personal use and for purposes wholly or mainly outside the business of that individual or another.
As a general purpose template, these terms contains many more blank spaces for you to fill in than most of its companions in this subfolder. In particular, space is provided to specify rules applying to customers’ use of the hired products.
Payment in this terms and conditions template takes the form of payment in full at the start of the hire period of the hire fees themselves, along with a refundable security deposit (payable at the same time) designed to cover damage to, or loss or theft of, hired products.
Customers may damage hired items, whether accidentally or otherwise. Provision is therefore made for an accidental damage waiver. Damage (or loss) outside of that waiver should be covered by the aforementioned security deposit.
Please note that while this document can be placed on a website for hire to non-consumer customers only, it is not designed to serve as terms and conditions for e-commerce and has not been written with e-commerce laws in mind.
For an advance booking/reservation B2B scenario (rather than walk-up-and-hire), an alternative set of terms and conditions is also available from Simply-Docs.
Optional phrases / clauses are enclosed in square brackets. These should be read carefully and selected so as to be compatible with one another. Unused options should be removed from the document.
