Terms and conditions overview

These are the terms and conditions subject to which we allow you to hire our Equipment.


This service is operated by CampLight Limited. Throughout the service, the terms “we”, “us” and “our” refer to CampLight Limited. Where we refer to “you”, that is you, the customer employing our Service and your guests.


By visiting our site and making a booking with us, you engage in our “Service” and agree to be bound by the following terms and conditions. 


Any new features or tools which are added to the current service shall also be subject to the Terms of Service. You can review the most current version of the Terms of Service on this page. We reserve the right to update, change or replace any part of these Terms of Service by posting updates and/or changes to our website.


SECTION 1. Definitions

These definitions apply unless the context requires a different interpretation:


"Equipment" refers to the physical goods supplied to you, the customer for the agreed hire period by us as part of your agreed package and stipulated on your quotation and correspondence. 


“Hire Period” refers to the period of time within which you are entitled to possession of the Equipment. If exceeded you will ensue a charge and loss of your security deposit.


"Quotation" is an agreed upon offer from us to you for our service and is valid only until stipulated on the quotation document.


“Booking Deposit” is the money transferred to secure your booking with us. The Deposit is the total Charge for our service as agreed upon in the Quotation.


“Damage Deposit” refers to an additional, refundable sum paid by you to us in the event of any damage or evidence of misuse. We reserve the right to calculate this according to the nature and size of a booking. We reserve the right to retain this if the equipment is returned late, unclean, damaged or in any other way deemed by us to have been misused.


"Services" refers to the hire of our Equipment and additional services we provide to you under this contract.


“Charge/s” refers to the costs of hireage and all associated costs outlined in the Accepted Quotation.


SECTION 2. The Basic Contract


2.1. This is a hire agreement. We own the Equipment and hire it to you for the Hire Period agreed, for an agreed price/charge. You may not deal with the Equipment in any way which is contrary to our ownership of it. If you do, you will be in breach of this agreement and will also be committing a criminal offence.


2.2. The Hire Period is that which has been stipulated upon the final paid invoice. 


2.3. The Quotation is an invitation to hire. Neither of us is bound to a legal agreement until you accept the quotation and pay the subsequent invoice.

2.5. Risk in the Equipment passes immediately to you when the Equipment leaves our possession. That means you are responsible for taking care of it. You remain responsible until the Equipment is safely back in our possession.


2.6 You may not smoke or Vape under any of our tents, marquees or shades. By doing so you will be in breach of this agreement and will forfeit your Damage Deposit.

This Bond is in addition to any other fees or charges payable under this Agreement. The Hirer agrees to pay the Owner a Bond of an amount and on the date specified (if any) in the Invoice.


3.5. Use of Bond Money: The Bond will be held in trust by CampLight Limited and should the Hirer breach or fail to properly perform the Hirer’s obligations under this Agreement, we may use the Bond to carry out the Hirer’s obligations and deduct from the Bond any money payable to the Owner under this Agreement.


3.6. Return of Bond Money: Where the Hirer has properly complied with all its obligations under this Agreement and Clause 3.5 does not apply then within a reasonable time following the conclusion of the Event and the Hire Period, CampLight Limited will refund the Bond money to the Hirer.
