1. CONFIRMATION OF EVENT AND PAYMENT TERMS
To confirm a booking, the deposit must be paid. If a deposit is paid, it will be deemed that the invoice/contract and its terms and conditions have been read, understood and agreed to. All deposits are non-refundable. The Hirer will pay Eddy Leisure a non-refundable deposit of 20% to confirm the booking and must pay within 7 days of receiving the invoice/contract unless otherwise agreed. The Hirer will pay Eddy Leisure the full remaining balance at least 14 days before the date of hire, unless otherwise agreed. If the balance payment is not received or been agreed otherwise, Eddy Leisure will not perform the event but contractual obligations of payment will still apply and any amount outstanding will be pursued through the County Court if necessary. For any booking taken at short notice (3 weeks or less) full payment will be required upon confirming the booking i.e. by BACS transfer If payment is made on the day of the event, due to special circumstances, payment must be made upon arrival. If payment is not given, Eddy Leisure will not set up the equipment hired and contractual obligations to pay will still apply. The booking is for a set period of time, noted in the invoice/contract. If the event over runs, due to timing issues that are not the fault of Eddy Leisure, any additional time will be invoiced after the event. By paying a deposit it is confirming you have read and agreed to these terms and conditions you are agreeing that any additional time will be paid for. However, we reserve the right to finish the event at the contracted time, even if the event is not completed.
2. CANCELLATIONS AND ALTERATIONS
Any cancellations or alterations pertaining to the invoice/contract must be communicated in email by the Hirer and any alterations must also be agreed to by Eddy Leisure in email.

If you do not have power i.e. a suitable electric source – Generators are available on request at £POA per item hired and must be booked in advance.

If a generator or outside electrical source is being used, this must be a 16 amp power source (if in doubt please ask the sales team). Power leads supplied by Eddy Leisure are approximately 20 feet therefore power supply needs to be within this distance from the apparatus. If it is discovered the power is not suitable the event will not proceed and no refunds will be given/contractual obligations to pay will still apply. If you are unsure, please ask the sales team.
