Terms & Conditions
When you make a booking with Electric Party Rentals, you do so in agreement to the following terms:
1) I the hirer agree with all the terms and conditions of hire outlined below.
2) All bookings are treated as provisional until we send back a confirmation of booking email to you [all bookings are provisional until you receive confirmation from us - generally we will reply with confirmation on the next working day]
Terms & Conditions
All bookings require a deposit payment of 10% to secure booking. Any unpaid deposits within the given timeframe will automatically be cancelled.
Proof of deposit or full payment may be requested if it does not correspond with our booking system. Please print / screenshot payment confirmation receipt issued by Worldpay or have this information available on your smartphone.
Any outstanding balances must be paid either in advance of the hire date [via card payments via phone / website] or you can make a cash payment on delivery of your inflatable to the van driver - products will not be setup without payment on delivery.
If you would like to make a payment of the balance of the inflatable before the hire date, the best way to do so is reply to your confirmation email notifying us and we will reply with a payment link which you will be able pay with. This is the most secure method as it avoids taking card details over the phone and ensures your payment is allocated against your booking.
In the event your communion / confirmation is postponed due to COVID-19 and you have paid your deposit - we do not issue refunds under any circumstances but you will not lose your deposit. The deposit will be transferred to the new date, however, all deposits/payments made in 2021 must be used in 2021 - we will not be in a position to transfer your payment to 2022 or beyond.
If you need to make any modifications to your booking, please reply to your confirmation email and we will be happy to assist you. Ideally, we would prefer this method of communication as it avoids any errors.
Weekend Hire constitutes delivery before 11am on Saturday morning and collection Sunday morning [Weekend Hire / Two Day Hire does not constitute Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday].
Notes on Delivery / Collection Times
We do try to accommodate customers as best as possible, however, please note - that we will have to collect your items after 7pm if the item you have booked is required by another customer the following day.
Special delivery/collection requests cannot be guaranteed but we will try accommodating all customers as best as we can. Collection time will depend on collection routes, your collection might be first or last depending on your location - once the van arrives to collect your inflatable it must be collected, please do not ask the van driver to come back later as this will not be possible.
If you are unhappy with the aforementioned delivery/collection times please notify us immediately as we do not want to be in a position whereby the customer is unhappy when we arrive to collect the inflatable.
Notes on Access & Setup Location
Ensure you read the full product description including dimensions and minimum access / special access requirements for your chosen product, refunds will not be given under any circumstances for any products which will not fit in the designated setup location or if access is not possible. Refunds will not be given, and full payment will be required in this instance.
It is not possible to install products on any other surface other than grass. It is not possible to setup inflatables on concrete, tarmacadam, patio areas etc. refunds will not be given under any circumstances if a sufficient grass area is not available in the designated setup location. We cannot install on Astro Turf Grass.
If we must bring your inflatable through your house - you must notify us in advance as not all inflatables will fit through a house. If we arrive to setup and we cannot gain access full payment will be required and refunds will not be given. Similarly, notify us of any difficult setup sites such as steps etc. The onus is on the customer to notify us - refunds will not be given / full payment will be required in these situations.

In the event that your communion or confirmation date changes, we will try accommodating date changes. If it is possible to transfer your booking to another date we will, but it will be highly unlikely that your product [or a substitute] will be available on another key communion date - therefore, it may not be possible to change dates. In this instance, refunds will not be given
Inclement weather conditions do not warrant any refund whatsoever.
In the unlikely event that we are unable to provide the chosen product, we reserve the right to offer a substitute product. If you are changing your hire date, we reserve the right to offer a substitute product if the original product is not available on the new hire date.
We reserve the right to cancel any bookings as a result of unforeseen circumstances and/or circumstances beyond our control, in such instances, refunds will not be provided.

That is, if you cancel before 7 days of your hire date your deposit will be left on account for you - if you cancel less than 7 days before your hire date, your deposit is non-refundable and is lost [28 days in the case of communion bookings].

DISCLAIMER OF LIABILITY - HIRING AT YOUR OWN RISK.
As you may be aware, insurance companies are no longer offering insurance cover to leisure industries such as Bouncy Castle Companies and therefore, we are no longer in a position to provide insurance cover for any inflatables hired.
The hirer / organisation hiring the inflatable equipment are doing so at their own risk and Electric Party rentals specifically disclaims liability for incidental or consequential damage and assumes no responsibility or liability for any loss or damage suffered by any person as a result of the use or misuse of any of its inflatables / products.
If at any stage during the hire period the inflatable is damaged / defects appear and becomes unsafe to use, the onus is on the hirer to stop using the inflatable immediately, deflate the inflatable and contact us immediately. Our castles are checked thoroughly before they are left on your premises for any defects. Unfortunately, if any defect is found we will not be able to hire the inflatable to you.
The onus is on the customer to stop using and deflate the inflatable in the event of high winds. No inflatable should be used in winds above 24 mph (38 kmph), which is Force 5 on the Beaufort Scale (small trees in leaf begin to sway).
By booking online, and by receipt of this email it is accepted that you are agreeing to hiring the inflatable / products at your own risk.
