If an order is placed, these terms and conditions of business shall be deemed to have been accepted. Any agreements to the contrary shall require our written consent.

3. conversion and reduction
Conversion or reduction of the price and subsequent delivery can only be demanded if an attempt at repair or subsequent delivery has been made unsuccessfully on the part of the purchaser/hirer. Real wood and leather are natural products. So colours, structure and surface may differ from those pictured. For subsequent orders, we cannot guarantee consistency of models or consistency in terms of colour, structure and surface. The above reasons do not justify refusal to accept by the purchaser/hirer, neither do they justify a claim for amendment and/or return of the goods. (see also II and III)

This also applies if the hirer has accidentally taken the hired goods with it.

The hirer is responsible for proper storage of packaging materials, proper packaging of the hired goods for return transport and punctual delivery back to us. The hirer bears the costs. The hired goods must be returned to us at our premises no later than 4 days after the end of the event or by the agreed date, otherwise another 50 % of the list hire cost is payable for each week or part thereof, irrespective of the prior hire period.

The vendor cannot be held responsible for delayed delivery as a result of an act of god or events which make delivery significantly more difficult or impossible for the vendor, even if a binding delivery date has been agreed. These delivery delays give the vendor the right to delay the delivery for the period of the problem plus a reasonable start-up period, or to withdraw from the contract in part or in whole because of the part not completed. Incorrect or incomplete information absolves us of any obligation to comply with deadlines agreed.
