TERMS & CONDITIONS
YOU (The Lessee) agree to the following terms and conditions of hire from BOUNCE-O-RAMA (The Lessor).
The Lessee hereby acknowledges that he/she has read and understood the Terms and Conditions of Hire and operating procedures of the jumping castle(s) unit as outlined in this rental agreement. By proceeding with the booking, the Lessee accepts all terms of this rental agreement.
The rental fee is payable upfront, upon completion of your online booking or, alternatively, via bank-transfer/direct deposit should your order be completed outside of our platform. Payments via bank transfer need to be paid in full 2 days from invoice.
All upfront payments include an amount that acts as a "non-refundable deposit". These amounts differ depending on the notification time from booked date (ie 21 days, 14 days, 7 days, 48 hours) and are subject to our cancellation/change of mind/refund policy surcharges.
Rental costs displayed within each castle description do not include any delivery charge applicable nor costs involved in generator hire where your power is further than 25m from the castle setup or should your booking be in a public open space without access to power.
Delivery will be to the street address as specified by you (The Lessee), prior to the event start time you have stated within your booking.
The Lessee grants Bounce O Rama (The Lessor) the right to enter the property at the agreed street address for the delivery and subsequent setup and pack up of the unit.
After your order has been successfully received by us, you will receive a confirmation email. We will contact you again, prior to your event, confirming a delivery and setup time.
Delivery fees are included in the total cost for delivery to addresses within the free delivery areas. For areas outside the free delivery zone, additional fees will be notified at the time of booking. The unit(s) must be ready for collection, at the latest, by 5pm of your booking day. Should you require the castle longer than this, you are required to select Overnight Hire as your hiring option which includes an ‘extended booking’ fee.
Should your address be out of our service area completely, please Contact Us to speak with us directly to see how we can be of service.
Should we be unable to provide your delivery due to bad weather, vehicle failure, illness or any other factor beyond our control, we will inform you of this at the earliest possible opportunity and provide a resolution as per our policies.
Prior to your event, we ask that you please ensure there is adequate space for our jumping castles, that the location that our products will be sited is accessible and you have cleared the area of debris and that power is available no more than 20 metres from the installation site.
For the hygeine, health and safety of our crew, our equipment and our customers, delivery and instalment of your castle will not proceed should there be animal faeces, furniture or debris located in the delivery or setup path or location of our castles and your booking fee will be FORFEITED.
We will be unable to provide a credit if we cannot deliver your product due to a lack of space, accessibility, hygeine or due to an inappropriate location.
Delivery fees are generally included in the total cost for delivery to addresses within the free delivery areas. For areas outside the free delivery zone, additional fees will be notified at the time of booking. The unit(s) must be ready for collection, at the latest, by 5pm of your booking day – otherwise an ‘extended booking’ fee will apply.
For our overnight hire rate, all surcharges are included in the displayed price. Overnight hires are to be collected by no later than midday the following day. If you require the castle for longer, an extended fee will apply and will be payable prior to installation. Units can be deflated overnight by turning off the blower but must be inflated at least 3 hours prior to collection to ensure adequate drying time due to overnight showers, morning dew and other. We will provide overnight instructions during your delivery and installation.
