Children’s Equipment notified by the Owner (excluding reasonable wear and tear and all pre-existing damage), or a failure by the Renter to return the Children’s Equipment at the end of the Rental Period.

75% of the market value of the Children’s Equipment that has been lost, damaged or stolen, less the amount of the Bond paid to the Owner (if applicable).

($1,000 * 0.75) – $200 = $550.

  • where the Owner and the Renter have given effect to a rental transaction outside of the Platform;
  • where the Owner has breached these Terms; or
