6.1 Prior to the rental, the rented equipment is carefully checked and tested by A.S.Adventure. Already existing damage will be reported to the lessee at the time of collection and will be mentioned on the rental form.
6.2 The lessee is expected to check the rented equipment upon receipt. The lessee must report any damage to or defects in the rented equipment in writing within 24 hours of receipt.
6.3 If the lessee has not reported any damage or defect within 24 hours of receipt, the rented equipment is deemed to have been delivered in the condition described on the rental form.
6.4 In case the lessee has reported damages or defects in time and the rented equipment does not meet the terms of the rental agreement, A.S.Adventure will provide alternative equipment to the best of its ability.
Temporary reported damages or defects constitute a legitimate ground for the cancellation of the agreement and entitle the lessee to a full refund of the paid rental price and the respective rental deposit. The lessee is not entitled to compensation for lost profit of the lessor and/or claims of third parties.
6.5 Rented equipment cannot be insured through A.S.Adventure. The lessee is responsible for any insurance of the rented equipment.
6.6 The lessee bears the risk of loss, theft and damage of the rented equipment for the entire rental period, starting at the time of collection and ending at the time of return.
6.7 The lessor delivers the equipment in good condition. Inspection and counting by the lessee always take place at the lessor’s pick-up locations. The lessee confirms, at the time of taking delivery of the rented equipment, the correct number and the good condition of the equipment. Any objections must be noted on the rental form to be retained by the lessor, failing which all claims against the lessor will be forfeited. Collection and receipt by the lessee or their authorised representative shall be deemed to be irrevocable acceptance.
6.8 The lessee is responsible for returning the rented equipment in the condition and quantity in which they were delivered. Without prejudice to any recourse against third parties, the lessee shall be liable for any loss, damage, difference and diminution in value, without any fault or intention on the part of third parties, coincidence, or force majeure being able to be invoked against the lessor.
6.9 The lessee is also liable for any damage or nuisance that the rented property, or its use, even if not faulty, may cause to third parties during the entire rental period. They shall indemnify the lessor against liability to pay compensation for damage on the part of third parties arising from or in connection with the rented equipment or the use thereof or caused as a result of any defect in the equipment.
