Terms and Conditions
1. You are “the customer”. We and us are “Baby Comes 2”. “The equipment” means all or any of the items hired by you from us.
2. We agree to hire the equipment to you, subject to Clause 4, and as specified in our confirmation email/telephone call at the hire cost agreed.
3. Payment of the full hire cost together with a refundable deposit must be made at the time of placing your order unless agreed otherwise. Payment can be made using our online booking system or via Paypal for orders made by phone or email. Payment for some parts of the order may need to be charged separately in which case you will be notified at the time of booking of this requirement. Other payment options will only be available where agreed by us at the time of placing the order.
4. Baby Comes 2 reserves the right to refuse or cancel an order due to reasons beyond our control, including stock unavailability. Customers will be notified at the earliest opportunity and a full refund given of any payments made.

6. We will collect in line with our standard collection policy (see Clause 7), or you may return the equipment on the agreed date at a time convenient to both parties.
7. Delivery and collection will be made using a national courier service - unless other arrangements are made at the time of booking - and will be booked using the delivery schedules available to us by the courier. Enhanced delivery options may be available at additional cost. It is your responsibility to ensure someone is available at the delivery and collection address on the dates agreed; charges may be incurred and deducted from your deposit due to a failure on your part to meet the courier.
8. Upon receipt of your order by online booking, email or telephone, we will confirm the same by email or by telephone. This confirmation shall be checked thoroughly by you and any errors or queries notified to us within 48 hours of receiving such confirmation. If we receive no such notification we will assume the details of the confirmation are correct and delivery will be effected as agreed, subject to clauses 5 and 7.
9. We reserve the right to send an alternative item of equipment, other than specifically listed on our website, where this is necessary due to circumstances beyond our control. In this instance, we will endeavour to send an appropriate alternative item that is fit for the purpose of your hire and, where possible, will notify you of this in writing beforehand.
10. You are responsible for checking the equipment immediately upon delivery to ensure it is undamaged, in good working order and fit for the intended purpose. You will notify us on the day of delivery if this is not the case.
11. Where possible, instructions will be supplied with the equipment. You are responsible for reading these carefully prior to using the equipment and for complying with these instructions whilst using the equipment.
12. You have full responsibility for the care and safekeeping of the equipment and will retain it in your possession and under your control at all times. You are responsible for ensuring that it is used in a safe and sensible manner, used only for the purpose for which it is supplied and in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions and it is your responsibility to provide adequate supervision where appropriate.
13. Provided the goods are returned to us on the last date of hire in the same condition as you received them, and in the absence of any agreement to the contrary, we shall return the deposit to you in full.
14. If equipment is not returned in the condition in which it was hired to you, for whatever reason, we reserve the right to retain some or all of the deposit paid. This covers loss of or damage to the equipment, or anything needing more than an acceptable level of cleaning including, but not limited to, stains or odours that cannot be easily removed.
15. We cannot accept responsibility for any failure or delay on our part to fulfill our obligations where such failure/delay is caused by circumstances beyond our control or by a 3rd party provider.

17. If you wish to amend your hire agreement, you are entitled to do so at any time up to 2 working days (Monday to Friday) prior to the agreed start of your rental period and any changes to the hire or delivery cost as a result of this change to your order will be agreed with you in writing prior to fulfilling your order.
18. Where orders are cancelled with less than 4 working days (Monday to Friday) notice, a refund will be given of your deposit plus up to 50% of the combined hire and delivery charges to cover any costs already incurred by us in processing your order.
