Lessor may, at its sole discretion, gather information from third parties regarding potential lessee’s past rental history and creditworthiness.
The term of this Lease shall commence on the day of the first attempt by the parcel carrier to deliver the item, and expire on the last day of the rental period as shown on the checkout page (“Rental Period”). The Equipment must be return shipped to Hathart.com before shipping cut‐off time with the courier on the last day of the Rental Period. Should Lessee return the Equipment using a shipping label not provided by Lessor, and the Equipment is not returned on or before the expected return date, Lessor reserves the right to charge the Lessee additional Rent for the extra time the Equipment was in transit or late. You hereby give Lessor permission to contact you via the US mail, email, telephone, or text message regarding information on or status of your rental.
3. Rent and Deposit.
All rent will be paid in full at the time of check out.
Lessee shall use the Equipment in a careful, safe and appropriate manner and shall comply with and conform to all national, state, municipal, and other laws, and regulations in any way relating to the possession, use or maintenance of the Equipment including any manufacturer’s recommendations, warnings and instructions as to the safe use of the Equipment.
5. Representations, Warranties, and Agreements.
Lessee has selected the Equipment without relying upon any suggestion or recommendations of Lessor or its employees and Lessee understands and agrees that Lessor assumes no responsibility for the Equipment as being fit for any particular purpose.
Lessor represents and warrants as follows: (1) the Equipment is free from known defects and is in good working order to the best of its knowledge at the inception of the rental; (2) Lessor is responsible for routine repair and maintenance of the Equipment prior to rental; (3) Lessor has the right to enter into the rental of the Equipment.
Lessee agrees as follows: (a) except as set forth in Lessor’s representations and warranties above, the Equipment is rented to Lessee without any warranty or guaranty of any kind, express or implied, and specifically, there is no warranty of merchantability or fitness for a particular purpose; (b) Lessor shall not be held responsible with respect to production downtime, loss of profits, extra expense, indirect, consequential, or punitive damages, production delays; and (c) except as set forth in Lessor’s representations and warranties above, Lessee is responsible for all costs associated with any repair or replacement (without deduction for depreciation) of the Equipment necessitated as a result of Lessee’s usage, possession, transportation or failure to return the Equipment for any reason, including, without limitation, as a result of the negligence or willful misconduct of Lessee, its employees, agents, or contractors. At all times Lessor’s maximum liability in connection with the Equipment is limited to the rent paid to Lessor by Lessee.
6. Used Equipment.
Lessee acknowledges that the Equipment may be used gear and may be cosmetically flawed. However, Lessor warrants that the Equipment, whether new or used, will be in proper working condition when leased to Lessee. Should Lessee discover that the Equipment, as received, is not working properly, Lessee agrees to notify Lessor pursuant to Section 15 of this Agreement.
7. Typographical Errors.
In the event a product rental rate is listed incorrectly due to errors in pricing information received from Lessor’s suppliers, Lessor has the right to refuse or cancel any orders placed for products listed at the incorrect rate whether or not Lessee’s credit card has been charged. Should Lessor cancel Lessee’s order, Lessor will immediately credit Lessee’s account for the incorrect amount paid.
8. Order Acceptance Policy.
Your receipt of an electronic or another form of order confirmation does not signify Lessor’s acceptance of Lessee’s order, nor does it constitute confirmation of Lessor’s offer to rent. Hathart.com reserves the right at any time after receipt of Lessee’s order to accept or decline Lessee’s order or to supply less than the quantity Lessee ordered of any item for any reason.
9. Out‐of‐Stock Products and Multiple Product Orders. Lessor will ship the Equipment to Lessee as it becomes available. There may be times when the Equipment Lessee ordered is out‐of‐stock which will delay fulfilling Lessee’s order. Lessor makes no guarantees as to the availability of Equipment. Any estimate of availability provided by Lessor is based on the assumption that each of Lessor’s customer returns Equipment within the prescribed Rental Period. Lessor will keep Lessee informed of any Equipment that Lessee has ordered that are out‐of‐stock and unavailable for immediate shipment. If Equipment is outof‐stock or unavailable, Lessee may cancel the order at any time prior to shipping. For a multiple product order, Lessor will make every attempt to ship all products contained in the order at the same time. Equipment that is unavailable at the time of shipment of other Equipment will be shipped as they become available unless Lessee notifies Lessor of their alternate wishes to this end. Lessee will only be charged for Equipment contained in a given shipment, plus any applicable shipping charges.
Lessee will only be charged for shipping at the rate quoted on Lessee’s purchase receipt. The entirety of this shipping charge may be applied to the first Equipment shipped on an order requiring multiple shipments.
All shipping costs (including returns) are the sole responsibility of the Lessee. Lessor
does not ship on federal holidays. Lessor cannot guarantee the arrival date of the order as that is outside the control of Lessor. Any shipping or transit time estimates provided by Lessor are estimates only. Lessee is encouraged to order in a timely fashion to avoid delays caused by product unavailability or shipping. Lessee agrees to obtain and retain the shipping receipt for all return shipping until Lessor notifies Lessee of Lessor’s receipt of such returned product.
Estimated round trip shipping costs: $25
Lessee may cancel a pending reservation up to 24 hours prior to order shipment or pick up. Failure to do so will result in a 1 day rental (prorated off the 3-day rate) for all Equipment charged to your card. Lessee may cancel within 24 hours of placing an order with no fees or penalties, as long as the order has not shipped. Canceling a shipped order will result in extra fees. Lessee may cancel an order once it has shipped but such cancellation will be subject to full refund minus: 1-day rental rate + round trip shipping + cost of the damage waiver (if applicable). Lessor reserves the right to cancel any order at any time before delivery occurs at its sole discretion.
12. Insurance and Deposit.
Some orders may require that Lessee insure the Equipment for the duration of the Rental Period or provide an authorization hold to be placed on Lessee’s credit card on file in an amount to be determined by Lessor until the Equipment has been returned to Lessor in good working order. Should Lessee chose to ensure the Equipment, Lessee shall Hathart LLC as Additional Insureds on Lessee’s insurance policy and provide Lessor with a Certificate of Insurance at the time of the order.
Due to the value of the Equipment Lessor will not rent Equipment to persons under the age of 18. Lessee agrees not to allow any person to pick up, or return the Equipment who is under the age of 18.
Lessee agrees not to attempt to repair or materially alter the physical or otherwise makeup of the Equipment under any circumstances regardless of fault.
15. Loss and Damage.
Except as set forth in Lessor’s representations and warranties above, Lessee
hereby assumes and shall bear the entire risk of loss and damage to the Equipment from any and every cause whatsoever. No loss or damage to the Equipment or any part thereof shall impair any obligation of Lessee under this Lease. In the event of damage of any kind whatever to the Equipment, Lessor may: (a) charge Lessee’s credit card for the full cost of repair, and (b) repair the Equipment using a vendor at Lessor’s sole discretion. In addition to repair or replacement fees, Lessor may charge Lessee’s credit
card for a “Loss of Use Fee” in the event Lessee did not purchase a damage waiver at the time of the initial rental order. “Loss of Use Fee” is equal to the daily rental fees Lessor would have been entitled to receive for the Equipment had it not been damaged or lost. In the event the Equipment becomes damaged beyond repair, Lessee shall pay Lessor the full replacement value of the Equipment. Lessee must ensure that the Equipment, when returned to Lessor, is clean. Should the returned Equipment be deemed dirty in Lessor’s sole judgment, Lessor reserves the right to charge Lessee a “Cleaning Fee”?
16. Non‐Working Equipment.
Lessee shall notify Lessor within 3 hours of receipt of Equipment any malfunction and/or alleged damage of such Equipment. In the event Equipment is not functioning and/or damaged other than as a result of Lessee’s negligence or willful acts, Lessee must not attempt to repair or modify the equipment himself/herself. Lessee must return such non‐working Equipment to Lessor and Lessor will either replace the non‐working Equipment with a functioning equivalent (“Replacement Equipment”) or issue Lessee a credit or full refund of all rental charges paid by Lessee at Lessee’s option. The rental charges for all such non‐working Equipment so returned will commence upon Lessee’s receipt of the replacement Equipment. Once Lessor receives notification of suspected
damage of Equipment in transit, Lessor shall send such damaged Equipment to the manufacturer for inspection and repair. Lessee and Lessor hereby agree to be bound by the damage report provided by such manufacturer as to the cause and liability of such damage.
Upon the expiration or earlier termination of this Lease, Lessee shall return the Equipment to Lessor in good repair, condition and working order, ordinary wear and tear resulting from proper use thereof excepted, by delivering the Equipment at Lessee’s cost and expense via the shipping method specified by Lessor. Lessee shall be responsible for proper packaging of the returned Equipment using shipping and packaging materials provided by Lessor in the order shipment. Lessor’s acceptance of the Equipment upon return by Lessee shall not represent Lessor’s determination as to the condition of the returned Equipment. Lessor reserves the right to inspect the Equipment within a reasonable time after the return of the Equipment and make a determination as to whether such returned Equipment was damaged during the Rental Period.
19. Damage Waiver.
Lessor offers Lessee the option to purchase a damage waiver (“Damage Waiver”) for unintentional damage to the Equipment during the Rental Period. The determination of whether damage is unintentional and not abuse is at the sole discretion of Lessor. In the event of damage covered by a Damage Waiver, the Lessee, who has purchased the Damage Waiver will pay Lessor a deductible amounting to 12% of the value of an item in similar condition to the Equipment rented to Lessee. Valuation of the Equipment is within the sole discretion of Lessor. A damage waiver does not cover lost or stolen items. A damage waiver does not cover liquid damage as that is considered to fall under the category of Lessee negligence. Also, any peripheral items in Lessee’s rental are not covered including lens hoods, battery chargers, front and rear caps, cables, etc. (“Peripheral Items”). If Lessee loses and/or damages Peripheral Items, Lessee is responsible for the cost of replacement of the Peripheral Items even if Lessee purchased a Damage Waiver.
Damage Waiver (optional) Fee: $20
Lessee shall keep the Equipment free and clear of all levies, liens, and encumbrances.
Lessee, or Lessor at Lessee’s expense, shall report, pay and discharge when due all license and registration fees, assessments, sales, use and property taxes, gross receipts, taxes arising out of receipts from use or operation of the Equipment, together with any penalties or interest thereon, imposed by any state, federal or local government or any agency, or department thereof, whether or not the same shall be assessed against or in the name of Lessor or Lessee. Lessee shall indemnify and hold Lessor harmless from any taxes, fees, and penalties arising out of Lessee’s lease, use and possession of the
Equipment except for those taxes, fees, and penalties based upon Lessor’s income.
Lessee shall indemnify Lessor against, and hold Lessor harmless from, any and all claims, actions, suits, proceedings, costs, expenses, damages and liabilities, including reasonable attorney’s fees and costs, arising out of, connected with, or resulting from Lessee’s use of the Equipment, including without limitation the selection, possession, use, operation, or return of the Equipment.
If Lessee fails to pay any rent or other amounts herein provided within ten (10) days
after the same is due and payable, or if Lessee fails to observe, keep or perform any other provision of this Lease required to be observed, kept or performed by Lessee, Lessor shall have the right to exercise any one or more of the following remedies:
a. To charge Lessee’s credit card on file for all amounts due (including any late fees) and owing.
b. To sue for and recover all rents, and other payments, then accrued or thereafter accruing.
c. To take possession of the Equipment, without demand or notice, wherever same may be located, without any court order or other processes of law. Lessee hereby waives any and all damages occasioned by such taking of possession.
d. To terminate this Lease.
e. To pursue any other remedy at law or in equity.
Notwithstanding any repossession or any other action which Lessor may take, Lessee, shall be and remain liable for the full performance of all obligations on the part of the Lessee to be performed under this Lease. All of Lessor’s remedies are cumulative and may be exercised concurrently or separately.
The Equipment is, and shall at all times be and remain, the sole and exclusive property of Lessor; and the Lessee shall have no right, title or interest therein or thereto except as expressly set forth in this Lease.
25. Additional Documents.
If Lessor shall so request, Lessee shall execute and deliver to Lessor such documents as Lessor shall deem necessary or desirable for purposes of recording or failing to protect the interest of Lessor in the Equipment including, but not limited to a UCC financing statement.
26. Entire Agreement.
This instrument constitutes the entire agreement between the parties on the subject matter hereof.
Service of all notices under this Agreement shall be sufficient if given personally or by certified mail, return receipt requested, postage prepaid, at the address hereinafter set forth, or to such address as such party may provide in writing from time to time.
28. Governing Law.
This Lease shall be construed and enforced according to laws of the State of Virginia.
29. Late Fees
Late returns are penalized a maximum daily penalty equivalent to 25% of the 4-day rental rate for the Equipment. Any penalties will be charged to the Lessee’s form of payment on file with Lessor.
- In the event the rental is not returned 7 days after the due date and Lessor has been unable to collect the applicable penalties, the equipment will be considered stolen and the Lessee’s form of payment will be charged the full replacement value of the Equipment.
- If Lessor is unable to collect penalties or the replacement value of the equipment after 7 days, the Lessee shall be considered to be in Default.
- Lessor reserves the right to pursue all civil and criminal remedies in the case of unreturned or lost equipment.
The amount sent to collections is the retail cost of the items, plus our expenses in attempting to collect from you. At that point, if you send the equipment back, you will still owe the fees of the collection agency which are several hundred dollars. We cannot take it back, undo it, stop it or reverse it. Also, we will exhaust all civil and criminal remedies available in pursuing the matter. Top of Form
