(3) During Hire
  • (a) When a Barrier Hire London representative delivers the goods to the agreed site / address, and until a Barrier Hire London representative collects them, the goods are the sole responsibility of the hirer. Human error and damage in transit can occur. It is the responsibility of the hirer to check the goods on arrival and ensure that they are satisfied with the quantity and quality of goods delivered whilst the delivery team is still on site.
  • (b)Goods should be stored in the correct way to avoid damage – it is the hirer’s responsibility to ensure they know how. (Ask us at any time.)
  • (c)Goods should be stored in secure, dry conditions. Negligence can result in loss and damage for which relevant charges defined by Barrier Hire London apply.
  • (d)Goods should be returned in clean, dry condition or relevant charges defined by Barrier Hire London apply.
  • (e)Hirers who choose to collect or return goods themselves must use vehicles suitable for this purpose including means of securing the goods safely. Barrier Hire London reserves the right to refuse the release of hired goods to any customer without a suitable vehicle for the safe carriage of hired goods.
  • (f)Barrier Hire London reserves the right to not leave goods with the hirer, if on delivery it is apparent the goods will not be kept safely or securely.
  • (g)Late returns of goods will incur full relevant hire fees, plus any costs in the instance where other customers are inconvenienced and/or compensated due to the hirer’s late return.
  • (h) The hired goods and equipment remain property of Barrier Hire London at all times.

(5) Refunds
  • (a)Deposit refunds are usually issued by the same means the funds are taken – if you pay by card, you will be refunded by card.
  • (b)We aim to process all refunds within 10 working days of the end of hire, though we cannot guarantee the time it takes to receive the money due to processing times at banks etc.
  • (c) The hirer should contact us if they have not received payment within 14 days of hire end, as something may have gone wrong.
  • (d)The same process applies to any other refund.
(6) Delivery and Collection
  • (a)Customers are responsible for informing Barrier Hire London of any relevant details for loading and unloading, such as parking restrictions, tolls, stairs, distance into building and any other limitations, prior to delivery. Customers will be held responsible for any tickets or costs Barrier Hire London incurs due to failure to inform us, or any delays that happen as a consequence of a customer’s action or inaction. Barrier Hire London may also refuse to deliver or collect in addition to charging, due to breach of any of these guidelines.
  • (b) Unless otherwise stated, delivery and collection will include:
    • Customers choice of an approximate, guide window of time as AM (usually 9am-noon) or PM (usually noon-5pm) on Weekdays, weekends may vary.
    • Delivery to the street level/ground floor within reasonable access (up to 10 meters from nearest available parking point) or up to 10 metres in to a building on the ground floor. Please note this may be reduced to narrow corridors and entry points, or if loading is hazardous.
    • Delivery to a single point where the goods may be held safely.
  • (c). Upon delivery or collection a Barrier Hire London representative may even refuse to deliver or collect on the basis of the customer not informing Barrier Hire London of the following:
    • The taking of goods up or down any stairs, lifts or escalators. This includes both inside and outside.
    • Unfolding, setting out or folding and stacking any goods.
    • Cleaning.
    • Moving items belonging to a third party in order to gain access.
    • Specific time requirements.
    • Unscheduled waiting for access to a property for delivery or collection of goods.
  • (The above are not included and are available as additional services, please enquire for specific information.)
(7) If Barrier Hire London is Late
  • (a) Barrier Hire London will always endeavour to arrive as scheduled and has a strong track record for being on time. This may not always be possible due to traffic, weather conditions, issues with other jobs and any other delays. For this reason, Barrier Hire London recommends scheduling delivery to a ‘safe’ time which allows for the worst to happen and your event to function with other arrangements. Barrier Hire London can accept no responsibility for a customer’s failure to account for this matter and will not compensate beyond the value of any monies taken for any given job.
  • (b) If Barrier Hire London is at fault and in breach of its agreement with the customer, we may refund partial or whole delivery fees. This will be based on how late we are and whether the customer had allowed sufficient time as per our guidelines to account for this.
