After selecting Your furniture from our site, You will then choose the rental duration of the furniture. You will then be presented an amount that must be paid upfront which includes the first month’s rent along with a security deposit. You will be presented an amount for the pickup fee and You will be charged for the pickup fee in the last month of Your rental term. You agree to pay the monthly rental amount for the complete duration of Your term. At no time will You possess any rights or title to the furniture nor are You allowed to assign, sublease, or re-rent the furniture to anyone else. Moreover, You are not allowed to use the furniture in a commercial manner or in the course of a business. The furniture is only for residential and individual use. However, once every six months, those subscriptions that are in continuous existence and are current with payments will be allowed to swap similar pieces of furniture at or below their current rental price, subject to availability. For example, if you have rent a couch and a table, each can be swapped.
Failure to pay Your rental fees may result in a submission of a negative credit report to reporting agencies. In addition, late payments or payments that we are unable to process will incur a penalty at the rate of $50 for each instance. Furthermore, after the first late payment, C1 reserves the right to terminate the agreement and repossess any and all furniture You have rented whether under the same agreement or a previous one. We will also deduct the late payment from any deposit we may have and if a balance remains, will pursue necessary means to recover those amounts.
With respect to products rented from C1, we cannot confirm the rental price of a product until You elect a rental term and place the order. Despite our best efforts, a small number of the items on our website or in our catalog may be mispriced due to errors. If the correct price of a product rented from C1 is higher than our stated price on the website, we will, at our discretion, either contact you for instructions before delivery or cancel your order and notify you of such cancellation.
Once the payment and deposit have been received and processed, we will coordinate a delivery date where we will arrive and assemble the furniture. Either in accordance with an early termination or once the duration of Your rental is complete, we will schedule a pickup to retrieve the furniture. All maintenance and repairs, other than company provided “free maintenance and repairs” are Your responsibility. This includes reasonable upkeep such as vacuum and periodic cleanings. No alteration or remodeling are allowed. All furniture must be returned in the same/similar condition as received. If upon retrieval of furniture it is determined that there are any pest infestations, You will be responsible for the fair market value of the furniture which can be collected from the security deposit.
C1 inspects the Furniture prior to delivery to ensure that it is free of material defects or infestation. You are responsible for maintaining the Furniture in good condition. You are responsible for any damage, loss or destruction of the Furniture beyond wear and tear in the normal course of use as determined in C1’s sole discretion. In the event of damage or loss, C1 will charge You its cost of replacing or repairing the Furniture, including materials, parts and labor, plus any applicable service fees.
You will not remove any furniture from the delivery address without C1's prior written approval. If You fail to return the Furniture as required, You will be liable to C1 for an amount up to the replacement cost of the Furniture plus handling fees, in addition to all other payments and charges due under this Rental. You agree to indemnify, defend and hold C1 harmless from any and all liabilities, claims, suits losses, damages, costs and expenses, including but not limited to the infestation of Furniture and any personal injury that may arise as a result. You also agree to unconditionally discharge C1 and its officers, directors, employees and agents from any and all claims or suits for damages suffered by You as a result of insect infestation, personal injury caused by insects, or other damage or personal injury caused by the Furniture.
C1 will deliver and pick up the Furniture only at the address specified in Your rental agreement. You grant C1 permission to enter Your premises for the purposes of delivering and picking up the Furniture. C1 will have no liability for damages resulting from any delay in delivery or pick-up of the Furniture. If through no fault of C1, an additional pick-up or delivery must be made to complete this transaction, You will be immediately notified and an additional transportation charge may be added and charged to Your credit card on file.
You may cancel this Rental by e-mailing notice of cancellation to firstname.lastname@example.org or speaking with a representative at any time prior to delivery of the furniture. If You cancel the rental within two (2) business days of scheduled delivery You will not be charged any cancellation fee. However, if You cancel the rental within one (1) business day of scheduled delivery you will be charged a $199 cancellation fee. Refund of initial charges net of any Cancellation Fee will be made to Your credit card on file. Cancellation after delivery will be treated as an Early Termination of the subscription.
You also have the ability to renew the term of the rental or cancel at will once You have satisfied the terms of Your rental agreement and completed the duration of the rental.
Early Termination: Should You choose to terminate this Rental prior to your chosen rental term on the website, C1 reserves the right to levy an additional charge to your credit card on file.
The additional charge due at Early Termination will be calculated as follows:
(Monthly rental rate for actual term - Monthly rental rate for chosen term) * Number of months of actual term + Pick-up fee for actual term + $150.
Should You receive a product that is damaged or not as described, C1 will replace the product with a new one at no charge to You. However, if You return a product at the time of delivery for no fault of C1 or prior to your chosen rental term on the website, You will be charged a $199 restocking fee. Once Your tenure is complete and in order to arrange for an orderly close-out of the Rental, You must e-mail C1 at email@example.com, with a minimum of 15-days’ notice in advance of the desired pick-up date. Failure to provide such notice may result in additional charges. Upon termination or completion of the Rental, any overpayments will be credited to Your credit card on file which You are required to provide us prior to renting any product.
C1 reserves the right to cancel or terminate the order at any time before the stipulated delivery date for any reason, including, but not limited to lack of inventory or damage in transit by offering a full refund to You. In such rare cases where C1 has to cancel or terminate an order, C1's liability is limited to offering a full refund to You.
