Biggabed Rental Agreement
 

BIGG-A-BED RENTAL AGREEMENT

 

We are excited to enhance your sleeping comfort this academic year. This Agreement describes what the rights and responsibilities of each party are. If you have any questions about anything in this Agreement, please contact us at contact@biggabed.com immediately. Certain terms are defined on your order form (“Order Form”) that was emailed to you at the time of rental. The Order Form is incorporated into this Agreement and made a part hereof.

 

This Rental Agreement (the “Agreement”) is between Bigg A Bed, LLC d/b/a Bigg-A-Bed, (“Lessor” or “we”, “us” or “our”), and you (“Lessee” or “you” or “your”), and is dated as of your Order Date (as described on your Order Form).

The Parties agree as follows:

 

  1. Lease. We agree to lease certain equipment (the “Equipment”) to you, as further described on your Order Form. We will continue to own the Equipment during the lease, and this is not a rent-to-own or security agreement.
     

  2. Use of the Equipment.  If you choose to self-install the Equipment, you will be responsible for installing the Equipment according to our directions, which are available at https://www.biggabed.com/installation-guide. Whether you self-install or not, you are responsible for ensuring proper installation of the Equipment. YOU MAY NOT INSTALL THE EQUIPMENT ON A LOFTED BED. If you decide not to use the mattress provided by the college or university that you attend (the “Institution”), you will be responsible for storing it, for any damage to it during the Term (as defined in Section 11), and for returning it to your room on or before the last day of the Term.  You acknowledge that you will use the Equipment at your own risk. We will not be responsible for any damage to Institution property, your property or injury to you or anyone else as a result of the installation or use of the Equipment. Use of the Equipment in any other room or location other than the location specified on your Order Form is prohibited without our written approval (approval via company email is an acceptable form). You will, at your own expense, keep and maintain the Equipment in a good state of repair, normal wear and tear excepted, and you will use the Equipment only for its intended purpose and follow our instructions available here regarding the use and maintenance of the Equipment.

  3. Rent. In consideration of your right to possess and use the Equipment during the Term you will pay the rent specified on your Order Form (“Rent”) in advance, prior to receipt of the Equipment.

    If by the expiration of the Term, you do not return the Equipment to us in the condition and on the terms and conditions of Section 6 below, you will continue to comply with all the terms and conditions of this Agreement, including the obligation to pay one hundred ten percent (110%) of the prorated daily Rent for each day from the expiration of the Term until the date on which you return the Equipment to us in accordance with this Agreement (“Holdover Rent”). You will not construe anything contained in this Section, including your payment of Holdover Rent, as our assent to the waiver of any obligation under this Agreement; or (b) assent to any renewal of this Agreement. Alternatively, if we determine in our discretion that you do not intend to return the Equipment, we will deem the Equipment lost and will charge you a Loss Fee of up to three (3) times the Rent paid under this Agreement (the “Loss Fee”). Holdover Rent will be charged at our discretion. Once the Loss Fee is paid, Holdover Rent will cease to be charged.

    Lessee shall reimburse Lessor for all costs incurred in collecting any late payments, Loss Fees and Holdover Rent, including, without limitation, reasonable attorneys' fees. Payment of any late charge does not excuse you of any default under this Agreement.

    You have provided us with a credit card that is valid through the expiration of the Term and you agree that we may charge the card on file for any Holdover Rent, extra cleaning fees (as described below) or Loss Fee that you may accrue.  Your credit card information will be securely stored by a third-party processor (currently Square). You must update your card on file with us if it ceases to be active for any reason during the Term. If your credit card expires or is inaccessible, we will send you an invoice that is due upon receipt. Your balance may accrue interest if unpaid upon receipt. You will be unable to rent new Equipment until your balance has been paid in full.  You can read more about what Square does to keep your information secure here.
     

  4. Limited Warranty. We will replace the Equipment with identical or similar Equipment if the Equipment is defective and fails to operate in accordance with our specifications or operation instructions. Such replacement shall be made as soon as practicable after you return the non-conforming Equipment. Contact us at contact@biggabed.com to make a claim under this warranty. Unless we specify otherwise, you will return the non-conforming Equipment at your expense and risk of loss to us at the location specified on the Order Form. Products manufactured by a third party (“Third-Party Product”) may constitute, contain, be contained in, incorporated into, attached to, or packaged together with, the Equipment. Third-Party Products are not covered by the above limited warranty.

    The limited warranty above does not apply where the Equipment has been subjected to abuse, misuse, neglect, negligence, accident, improper testing, improper installation, improper storage, improper handling, abnormal physical stress, abnormal environmental conditions, or use contrary to any instructions issued by us, or used with any Third-Party Product, hardware, software, or product that has not been previously approved in writing by us.
