Terms & Conditions

AGREEMENT

1. DEPOSIT

We require a pre-paid deposit of £100 which will be returned to you after a hot tub check on the collection of the hot tub providing there is no damage to it, we have access to get it at the agreed time and date and it has not been stolen. Deposits are normally paid back by the same method it has been paid.  For non-cash deposits, the time taken to reach your account depends on the bank's terms and conditions and the payment method. For peace of mind for both parties, videos will be taken before the hire commences in case of any disputes regarding damage.

Any damage not covered by the deposit will be billed accordingly – this may include a cleaning charge of £25 if applicable.

If the customer does not pay for damages or a stolen hot tub willingly, then we will pursue lost money and lost hire time in a small claims court.

If we arrive to deliver your hot tub at the agreed time and no one is in to receive it, then we will try to rearrange delivery subject to extra fuel and time costs.  If we are unable to redeliver then your deposit will be forfeited. It is the customer’s responsibility to be at home for delivery.

2. HIRE PERIODS

The full hire period is the dates shown on the hire contract.

 

At the end of the hire period, goods not made ready for collection will be charged for at £50 per day in addition to fuel and time costs above.

 

By completing your booking and payment online, you confirm your acceptance of these Contract Terms and Conditions.

 

3. YOUR RESPONSIBILITY WHEN HIRING THE HOT TUB

The hirer shall be responsible for ensuring the security of the equipment at all times.  Any costs arising from the equipment not being secured are chargeable to the hirer. The hirer must give clear instructions and take all reasonable steps to ensure the safety of our people.  Hottubhire2u.uk accept no responsibility for any damage or injuries caused. There must be free parking either on your property or next to it that is suitable for loading and unloading for the duration of the setup and put down period.  You are responsible for any parking costs should they be incurred.

 

The hirer will supply the water for the equipment in the hire period.

 

You must make sure you have a suitable supply of electricity and it must be in with 5 metres of where the hot tub will be placed.

 

We require a flat level base to sit the hot tub on.  This can be slabs, concrete, blocks or any firm hard standing.

 

The hirer will inspect the hot tub with Hottubhire2u.uk and note and sign for any damage on the equipment.

 

The hirer becomes responsible for the hot tub when they receive it – please take extra care to stop any sharp objects from being around or in the hot tub and prevent people from jumping in or on the hot tub. Do not pour hot water on the hot tub plastic.

 

We will need a drain close by to empty the hot tub at the end of the hire period if you do not wish us to empty the water in the surrounding area.

 

4. WARM UP TIMES

Because of the low temperature of the cold water and the air at this time of year, warming up times are significantly longer in the winter. The warming up time is as long as 36 hours.  This needs to be factored into your planning as we can not be held responsible if the hot tub is not warmed up in time for an event or party.

 

On average, the tub will take between 24 to 36 hours to heat up dependent upon ambient air temperature. Please ensure that this is factored into your timings for your event.

 

5. CANCELLATIONS

You can cancel your hot tub hire booking up to one week before the delivery day and your deposit will be refunded in full. If you cancel after that time period the deposit will be forfeited. If your booking is made within a week of delivery and you cancel, then again the deposit will be forfeited.

 

6. ACCIDENTS / INJURY

The hirer acknowledges that the use of the hot tub is at the hirers' own risk

 

Hottubhire2u.uk will not be liable for accidents, injuries, or death caused by misuse of our tubs – this includes falling over on wet surfaces or falling in or out of the hot tub, use of drink, drugs etc.

 

Pregnant ladies must not use the hot tub or seek doctors advise first.  Anyone on medication must consult their doctor and if you have any health concerns, please consult your doctor before hot tub use.

 

Children under the age of 16 should only be allowed to use the hot tub under strict adult supervision. We don't recommend a temperature higher than 37 degrees Celcius for children younger than 16.  We would also recommend that the air bubbles are not used when the hot tub is being used by children under 16 years old.

 

7. SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS

The hirer must make sure that everyone using the hot tub is properly instructed on how to use it safely and correctly and that they have all read the instructions we have supplied. On arrival we will explain how to care for the tub and how to use it. Ideally, the person hiring should be the person who is there during set-up but if this is not possible, it is the responsibility of the person there to pass on this important information.

 

Enter the water with care making sure it is not too hot (test first).

The hirer must make sure the hot tub is not misused.

Only use plastic glasses in the hot tub.

Do not enter the hot tub with clothes on, suitable swimming attire only.

Do not enter the hot tub with shoes on or with any sharp object on your person.

Do not dive or jump into the hot tub.

Do not stand on the hot tub housing.

Do not put naked flames/candles near the hot tub

Do not smoke in or near the hot tub

The hirer must ensure the cover is on to retain the heat when not in use.

 

Always leave the hot tub plugged in and switched on when not in use in order for the

filtration/heating systems to work.  If it is accidentally switched off or a power failure occurs, the tub will need to be switched back on and reset as shown in the setup demonstration.

 

8. CHEMICALS

Your health and well being is of the utmost importance to us.  Our hot tubs are thoroughly cleaned at the end of the hire using antibacterial spray.

 

We bring enough chemicals with us for your hire period and we will show you how to use them.

 

To ensure the water in the hot tub is always clean and ready for use during your hire period you must ensure everyone showers before using the hot tub and all traces of dirt, makeup, moisturiser, creams etc must be cleaned from your body before use.  The water in the hot tub will be clean when we leave, it is up to you to keep it that way.

 

Do not add bubble bath, foam bath or washing up liquid of any description unless we supply it.

 

Anyone with fake tan of any description must not use the hot tub.  A cleaning charge of £25 or a filter replacement charge of £25 may apply if, when inspected on the collection,  we are dissatisfied with the cleanliness to the hot tub.

 

9. DAMAGE TO YOUR PROPERTY

Hottubhire2u.uk will not be held responsible for any damages to your property through hiring any of our tubs: this includes any water damage or weight damage to structures, fixtures, fittings, garden or grass areas as a result of the hot tub location.  It is the hirers' full responsibility to make sure the area where the hot tub is going to be placed, is suitable and will not cause any damage. The filled weight of the tub (800-1600 ltrs = 180 - 360 gal of water) on the surface needs to be taken into account as well as the displaced water outside the tub.

 

We do not recommend hot tubs are placed indoors.

 

10. LIMITS OF OUR LIABILITY

All the times and dates we quote for delivery or collecting the goods are approximate and we will not be liable for any delays caused by circumstances beyond our reasonable control.

 

If the hot tub breaks down or stops working, we will determine the problem as soon as possible after you have reported it to us and then try to repair or replace it as soon as possible.
