TERMS AND CONDITIONS
TERMS AND CONDITIONS
By making or confirming a hire booking in writing you accept the following terms and conditions
Our minimum hire period is one day, sorry we do not supply vehicles for half days or at an hourly rate. A working day is taken to be ten hours door to door, that is from leaving where the vehicle originated until it returns there, or from call time until wrap on each day of multiple, consecutive hire days.
Our prices are set by using the information you give us. A one day hire with delivery is priced differently to a full week or different days for multiple vehicles. We always try to give our best price for your budget, and whilst we accept schedules change, if a price is quoted for multiple days and vehicles for a long production, the price quoted is dependant on the original requirements. Should there be a reduction of days and vehicles, once production has started, a new price will be quoted for your acceptance.
Unless specified, A to E Commercials only insure vehicles hired to the first point of contact with the production, that is when the vehicle first arrives on the first shoot day at the place it is requested to be delivered to. This could be Unit Base, a studio or directly to a location. From then on, until the return journey to it's original base at the end of the last day, insurance for the vehicle is responsibility of the hirer, whether on camera or not. This includes overnight between consecutive shoot days if kept at Unit Base.
It is the responsibility of the production company to ensure artists are qualified to drive and have the experience to drive classic vehicles, and are insured to do so. This includes having a full valid driving licence and are qualified (in the case of commercial vehicles) to drive vehicles over 3.5 tons or (in the case of passenger vehicles) have seats for more than 8 passengers
All damage will be charged for, including damage to a vehicle's paint resulting from graphics applied during the course of the production, and mechanical damage which is the result of poor normal or stunt driving.
For a one off one day hire our payment terms are payment on the day of hire. This can be cash or cheque on the day or payment into our account by CHAPS no later than the day before. Long term hire is payment in advance at the start of the hire. Long projects with separate hire days or days are payable on the first day of each set of hire days.
Vehicles booked and confirmed in writing (by email, mobile phone text or clearly listed on a vehicle schedule) can only be cancelled in writing, no later that 24 hours before the shoot date. Vehicles cancelled, even in writing, within 24 hours of the hire period will be invoiced for.
