You agree to pay the Amount Due on Delivery.
Rent and all other Payments are always payable in advance unless otherwise specified. Where you pay any Payment by automatic payment, direct debit or direct credit, and the Payment Date falls on any statutory holiday in New Zealand, you agree that we may process the Payment one Business Day prior to the scheduled Payment Date.
Where an amount for a Security Bond is included in the Hire Contract, you acknowledge that a Security Bond will be held by MRG and either returned to you upon termination of the Hire Contract or applied as provided by the Hire Contract.

We may charge a fee to deliver, install, collect, and return the Goods. This fee will be specified in the Hire Contract Schedule. Other than for Tailored Solutions, if you hire all the Goods for longer than eight (8) weeks and pay all Rent and other charges, we will waive this fee. If we waive this fee and you have already paid it, we will apply that amount against any future Rent or other amounts payable or refund it if it exceeds future amounts payable.5. SERVICE
We agree to keep Goods in good working order and service them while you meet your obligations. Service on the Goods may only be carried out by our own technicians or authorised agents. We may choose to replace the Goods in which case any replacement Goods will then be the Goods for the purposes of the Hire Contract.6. PROPERTY IN THE GOODS
You agree that you are not the owner of the Goods and you only have the right to use them while you meet your obligations. Nothing in the Hire Contract shall be construed as an offer by us to sell you the Goods or any option to purchase the Goods.
The Goods are at your risk until they are returned to us and you must never sell, hire or dispose of them. If you relocate or move address, you must tell us and provide your new address to us.7. LOSS OR DAMAGE
You are responsible for all loss or damage to the Goods. If the Goods are lost or damaged you must pay for the Replacement Value or repair of the Goods and continue to pay Rent. You must inform us immediately of any loss or damage to the Goods and substantiate with a police report and verification of forced entry in the case of loss by theft or with a written statement and physical proof in the case of accidental damage. For the avoidance of doubt, "loss or damage" to the goods includes any damage to the Goods beyond what we consider to be fair wear and tear. The term "repair of the Goods" includes, without limitation, cleaning and sanitising of goods.8. ACCESS TO GOODS
You must not move the Goods from the Address or outside the Service Area without our prior written consent. You agree to provide us or our agents reasonable access to inspect the Goods at all times.

If you breach any of its obligations under the Hire Contract we shall have the right to apply the Security Bond either in whole or in part towards the monies owing under the Hire Contract by you.
