Hire terms and conditions

The client will receive a demonstration of the equipment, including charging, disassembling, and assembly if required. A member of our team will inspect the equipment at the time of collection to ensure it is returned in satisfactory condition. In the event of any damage to equipment (other than what is deemed as reasonable minor wear and tear) Scotgate Mobility Ltd reserves the right to retain the deposit and subsequently recover the full cost of any losses or damages at the expense of the client.

Scotgate Mobility Ltd is not liable for any damage to property or person whilst the client (or anyone else) is using the equipment. Clients are required to inform Scotgate Mobility Ltd as soon as possible in the event of any accident or incident.

Scotgate Mobility Ltd reserves the right to refuse the supply of equipment if deemed in the interests of the safety of the client and others. Clients are advised to disclose any relevant information (including any medical conditions) likely to affect the ability to operate equipment safely.

Emergency Call Out

In the event of a technical problem, we will endeavour to resolve the situation as quickly as reasonably possible. If the equipment is unable to be repaired a replacement model of similar specification will be offered.  Should the problem be directly attributed to negligence or improper use, you will be liable to a call out and repair charge.
