ELECTRONIC SIGNATURE – For all purposes herein, Beachway Rentals and You agree that an electronic signature on these Terms & Conditions and the Rental Agreement – Waiver and Release of Liability shall be deemed the same as an original, handwritten signature for the purposes of validity, enforceability, and admissibility. Further, both parties agree to promptly re-execute a copy of both the Terms & Conditions and the Rental Agreement – Waiver and Release of Liability with original, handwritten signatures if requested by the other to do so. 

  1. USE OF SITE – This site may contain other proprietary notices and copyright information, the terms of which must be observed and followed. Information on this site may contain technical inaccuracies or typographical errors. Information, including product pricing and availability, may be changed or updated without notice. Beachway Rentals and its subsidiaries reserve the right to refuse service, terminate accounts, and/or cancel orders in its discretion, including, without limitation, if Beachway Rentals believes that customer conduct violates applicable law or is harmful to the interests or equipment of Beachway Rentals or anyone else.

  1. PRIVACY POLICY – Beachway Rentals’ use of personal information that you may submit to Beachway Rentals through the website, phone orders, and orders taken in person is governed by this agreement. Beachway Rentals considers customer information to be confidential and does not share or sell customer data. 

  1. TERMS & CONDITIONS AND WAIVER / RELEASE – Customer agrees by signing the Rental Agreement – Waiver and Release of Liability that they are bound by the terms and conditions of this agreement and that customer signature on this agreement is not required. 

  1. TERMS OF DELIVERED EQUIPMENT – Customer assumes all risk of loss or damage to the Equipment upon receipt of the Equipment from Beachway Rentals or a designated agent to Customer. Customer shall be solely responsible for any such loss or damage to the Equipment during the rental period up until the return of the Equipment to Beachway Rentals’ designated location. 

  1. DELIVERY – We make every effort to arrive on time, however, due to unpredictable traffic situations and possible delays, we do not guarantee exact delivery times. You have 24 hours after delivery or as soon as discovered to notify Beachway Rentals of any discrepancies, damaged equipment, or missing manufacturer’s instructions. You agree that you or your designated agent examined the equipment, agree that it is in operable condition (if appropriate), and are otherwise aware of its condition. Manufacturer’s instructions are also posted on our website for customer use where available. Changes, upgrades, and additions will be charged to the customer’s credit card on file and are payable immediately. A same day delivery fee may be charged if the customer changes the order after it has been delivered. Customer assumes all responsibility for reviewing their order to assure the correct and appropriate items are on the order. Changes prior to rental start can be made subject to availability and will not be provided unless the product is available and until the payment for the difference is made.

  1. BABY CRIB DELIVERY & STAIRS – Due to Federal requirements on crib manufacturing, the weights of full-size cribs have nearly doubled since 2012. This makes the transport of cribs up and down stairs dangerous for a single individual, with a high risk for personal injury or property damage. Beachway Rentals must take into consideration the safety of our personnel, as well as, the need to minimize the potential for damage to the properties where we deliver. Beachway Rentals’ personnel can only deliver to or pickup from upper floors with the assistance of another adult capable of carrying a 65-pound item. Accordingly, all crib deliveries and pickups shall occur in a safe, secure location on the ground level. If moved by Customer, these cribs must be returned to ground level prior to customer departure from the property. If no safe, secure location exists on ground level, customers will need to call upon arrival to schedule a second delivery attempt. Cribs left on upper floors or indoors upon departure will require re-scheduling at a time that two staff members are available after Beachway Rentals has obtained a key or key code. This will result in an additional $30 fee to the customer.

  1. BABY GEAR AND EQUIPMENT – By placing an order, Customer specifically agree to all of the terms set forth in the Baby Equipment Rental Agreement – Waiver and Release of Liability. Customer will make every effort to obey and abide by all safety precautions when using baby equipment, including but not limited to cribs, booster seats, strollers, high chairs, pack and plays, or other equipment. Customer will ask for clarification should any concerns or questions arise. 

  1. BICYCLES AND BICYCLE ACCESSORIES – I understand and accept that renting bicycles and participated in bicycling exposes me and/or my child to many hazards that may entail serious risk and injury, including death, and loss of or damage to property. I understand that I and/or my child should be in good physical health to participate in bicycling and I confirm that I and/or my child have no significant health issues that prevent me or my child from participating in bicycling. Despite the aforementioned risks and acknowledgments, I hereby assume all risk of injury or loss of life to myself or my child and loss of or damage to property arising out of renting and using the bicycle. I understand the inherent risks involved in using the bicycle and accept full responsibility for any and all such damage or injury which may result.

  1. SELF-PICKUP / SELF-RETURN – Beachway Rentals does not charge a fee beyond rental and tax for self-pickup/self-return of allowable items at our designated location provided customer arrives at the agreed time and date. A $25 fee will be assessed for each No Show/No Call, should the customer or their designated agent fail to arrive at the agreed time. Rental fees continue to accrue until equipment is returned to Beachway Rentals’ possession. Due to the nature of the business, Beachway Rentals does not guarantee the ability to reschedule a time at the customer’s preferred date or time but will offer alternate available times/dates.   

  1. REPLACEMENT COSTS – In the event any of Beachway Rentals’ non-low speed vehicle Equipment is damaged beyond repair, lost, or stolen during the term of the rental agreement, Customer agrees to reimburse Beachway Rentals for the replacement cost of the Equipment at retail value plus any lost rent or revenue during the time Beachway Rentals does not have the replacement Equipment to rent. In the event the equipment is damaged but repairable at a cost of less than 50% of the equipment’s retail value, Customer agrees to reimburse Beachway Rentals for the cost of the repair and any lost rent or revenue during the repair of such damage that occurred during the rental term that is the subject of this contract. The reimbursement of these expenses is due immediately upon presentation of an invoice from Beachway Rentals and is not contingent upon receipt of payment to Customer by Customer’s insurance carrier if applicable. Rental charges will continue to accrue until payment of the deemed replacement cost has been received in full by Beachway Rentals. Rental charges will not be offset against replacement value as such would deprive Beachway Rentals of rental income necessary for business operations. 

  1. REPAIR / REPLACEMENT OF LOW-SPEED VEHICLES – This section is not intended to contradict or negate the other terms and conditions otherwise set forth herein. Customer is responsible for all damage, loss, or theft of any rented Vehicle, including damage caused by weather, acts of god, or condition of terrain on which you use it. Your responsibility for damage will include: (A) all physical damage to the Vehicle measured as follows: (i) if Beachway Rentals determines that the vehicle is a total loss, the fair market value of the vehicle less salvage; (ii) if Beachway Rentals determines that the vehicle is repairable: (a) the difference between the value of the vehicle immediately before the damage and the value immediately after the damage or (b) the reasonable estimated or actual cost of repair plus recovery for any depreciation in value; (B) loss of use, which is measured by multiplying the daily rental rate of either the actual or estimated number of dates from the date the vehicle is damaged until it is replaced or repaired, which Customer agrees represents a reasonable estimate of loss of use damages and is not a penalty provision; (C) an administrative fee calculated based on the damage repair estimate as follows: $0-$250 in damage = $50 fee, $251-$500 damage = $75 fee, $501-$750 damage = $100 fee, $751-$1,500 damage = $150 fee, $1,501-$2,500 damage = $200 fee, over $2,500 damage = $250 fee; (D) towing, storage, and impound charges and other reasonable incidental or consequential damages Beachway Rentals incurs as a result of said damage, loss, or theft; and (E) all costs associated with Beachway Rental’s enforcement of this Agreement or collection of charges, including attorney’s fees, collection fees, and costs/expenses whether or not litigation is initiated.

If Customer fails to obtain written, preapproval from Beachway Rentals for the successive term prior to the expiration of the initial rental term, the successive renewal cost will also include a 10% penalty fee added to the total cost to account for the resulting inability of Beachway Rentals to re-rent that equipment to other customers.
