THE FIRST RELATES TO THE HIRING OF OUR TENTS, FURNITURE AND ACCESSORIES, THE SECOND TO THE PURCHASE OF OUR TENTS AND THE THIRD TO RETAIL SALES FROM OUR ON LINE SHOP. IT IS VERY IMPORTANT THAT YOU READ THE RELEVANT TERMS AND CONDITIONS BEFORE PLACING YOUR ORDER.

 

A. TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF HIRE

 

1 . Definitions

“we” “us” and “our” means the Raj Tent Club Limited

“you” and “your” means the Customer identified on our Confirmation Order and Invoices

“the Equipment” means the tents and all other equipment and installation services described in our Confirmation Order and Invoices

“event” means the occasion, party or celebration for which we are installing our tent and equipment

 

2. Quotations

We will send you a written quotation (“Quotation”) which you have 14 days to accept from the date of the Quotation.  

We reserve the right to amend the Quotation up to final confirmation by us of the order.  Whilst every effort is made to keep within the original Quotation, we reserve the right to amend the Quotation at any time during the 14 day period or if the equipment unexpectedly becomes unavailable or the cost of equipment materially increases. In the case where the site survey reveals access to other problems we reserve the right to amend the Quotation subsequent to either acceptance by you of the Quotation or confirmation of the order by us following your acceptance.

 

3. Confirmation of Orders

Your acceptance of the Quotation constitutes an Order by you. We will write to you (which may be electronically) confirming  the order (“Confirmation Order”) at which point there is a binding Contract (“the Contract”) between you and us but subject to our receiving the deposit in accordance with clause 5 below, and you signing and returning a copy of our Terms & Conditions

 

4. Payment

Twenty per cent (20%) of the Confirmation Order is payable by you (“the Deposit”) by BACS, electronic bank transfer or cheque drawn on a UK clearing bank  and the balance, that is 80% of the Quotation, by way of the same payment method, is payable by you not less than seven (7) clear days before the date of installation (“the Installation Date”) as set out in our Confirmation Order. We reserve the right to cancel the Order  should a cheque not be met on first presentation or if pre-notification of a BACS transfer is not honoured by your bank. All delayed payments are subject to interest at two per cent (2%) per month from the date payment fell due to the date of actual payment.

 

5. Cancellation

You may cancel the Contract after the issue of the Confirmation Order not less than 14 days before the Installation Date but you shall be liable to pay 50% of the Quotation less any Deposit paid.  In the event you cancel the Contract less than 14 days prior to the Installation Date, then the full amount of the Quotation is payable. We will consider any request for postponement of the Installation Date subject to our other commitments but no guarantee can be offered that postponement is possible. In any event any postponement will be subject to a surcharge of 10% of the Quotation which shall be payable immediately.

 

6. Access and Site Surveys

Our Quotation is based upon your assurance that the site is reasonably flat and accessible and that there are no cables, pipes or drains beneath the surface or other obstructions which, in our view, make erection of equipment using guy ropes and pegs hazardous or unsuitable.  We  endeavour to carry out a site survey before the date of installation but this is not always possible. There will be a charge for all site surveys conducted in other countries outside of mainland UK (apart from New Zealand), and we reserve the right to charge for any site surveys within mainland UK subject to distances travelled. All such charges will be agreed between you and us prior to the site visit and will be credited against the final invoice in the event that the Contract proceeds. In the event that access is restricted we reserve the right to increase the Quotation. You confirm that we can have unlimited access to the site for the purposes of installing and dismantling the Equipment.

 

7. Installing and Dismantling

We endeavour to keep to the Installation Date and likely dismantling date but reserve the right to change either of those dates due to a Force Majeure event under clause 11 below. You agree that you will not personally or allow any other person apart from our staff to dismantle the equipment or otherwise adjust or interfere with the guy ropes except to secure them in the event that any become loose. It is your sole responsibility to make good any damage to the site arising from the unauthorised adjustment of our installation either by you, your guests and your subcontractors or employees. You are also responsible for any damage to the site arising from your usage of our installation.

 

8. Electrical installations

Where you require lamps or other electrical equipment including heating it is your responsibility to ensure that there is a suitable 240volt/13amp power point(s) within 50 metres of the Equipment. Under no circumstances will we carry out any electrical work in connection with the provision of supply. You agree that you will not personally or allow any other person apart from our staff to dismantle the electrical equipment or otherwise adjust or interfere with it except in the case of an emergency.

 

9. Use of Equipment

Our tents are made from 100% cotton canvas. They have been treated to aid waterproofing but as with any canvas tent they are not entirely waterproof as a consequence. You must not use any naked flame inside or adjacent to the tent without our express written permission. No fastening, decoration or anything of that kind should be attached to the tent without our express written permission. Should you decide to use your own bunting, you should be aware that the dye in certain types of bunting is likely to run into the fabric of the tent and is almost impossible to remove. You shall be responsible for any such damage caused by the placement on or attachment to our Equipment of non-colourfast bunting or any other non-colourfast fabric. You must take reasonable care of the Equipment once it is on site including ensuring that any of our furniture (apart from garden furniture) that has been placed outside of the tent is moved inside the tent or indoors in the event of rain and ensuring that any pegs or guy ropes that may have become loose are secured.

 

10. Insurance

We have a block insurance policy covering your liability for damage to the Equipment whilst in your care (except for malicious damage) in respect of which you must pay a charge of 3% of the Quotation and which shall be included in the invoice.  In addition, you must pay the first £250 of any claim which we have referred to and has been met by insurers. In any case not met by insurers you are liable for the full replacement cost of the Equipment or the cost of repair whichever is the lower. We put you on notice that the majority of the Equipment cannot readily be repaired.

Raj Tent Club Ltd also holds Employers Liability Insurance for ten million pounds (£10,000,000) and Public and Products Liability Insurance for five million pounds (£5,000,000)

 

11. Force Majeure

If the Force Majeure Event prevents us from installing the Equipment we shall, without limiting our other rights or remedies, have the right to terminate this Contract immediately by giving written notice to you.

In either of case we will refund the return shipping charges to you. Where the Product has arrived defective, you must notify us immediately and in any event no later than 7 days after receipt.
