4.        Rental Rules

4.1      The minimum Rental Period is 1 Night.

4.2      The maximum value of a bag that can be rented via the Website is £4,999.

4.3      We strongly recommend the Owner takes photos of the bag before and after each rental.  Bags should be clean and provided in their/a dustbag and/or box for each rental.  Holdalls and luggage may not have a dustbag so this is not expected to be included, however, they must be clean and adequately packaged for shipping and/or pickup.

4.4      We strongly recommend the Renter takes photos of the bag at the start and end of the rental period. 

4.5      Under no circumstances can bags rented be taken outside of the UK.

4.6      Where the shipping option is chosen:

4.6.1   The Owner must use “Royal Mail’s Special Delivery Guaranteed by 1pm” service for the outward shipping and the Renter must use this same delivery service for the return shipping, unless pickup has been agreed with the Owner when the rental was confirmed.  The Royal Mail website provides details of the postage costs and the insurance provided.  Please note the maximum amount of coverage Royal Mail will provide is up to £2,500.  Both parties should be aware that this delivery service charges additional fees for Saturday deliveries and there is no Royal Mail service on a Sunday.

4.6.2   The Owner must send the bag to the Renter to ensure it arrives by 1pm on the first day of the Rental Period.  Delivery by 1pm is subject to Royal Mail’s service restrictions for some postcodes and latest acceptance times apply when posting Special Delivery Guaranteed items – please visit the Royal Mail website for full details.  We will not be responsible for any loss in service due to Royal Mail’s operations (or lack of). We recommend that you take photos of the packaged item with the address and return address clearly visible and check the building name or number and postcode printed on your Post Office receipt.

4.6.3   The Owner is responsible for ensuring they choose the correct postage charge with sufficient insurance, as this is the shipping price that will be published together with the details of the bag on the Website.  The Owner may also wish to include the cost of packaging materials in their shipping charge.  The Renter is responsible for payment of all shipping charges in accordance with clause 6.  However, the Renter cannot be charged for increased postage fees after the rental has been confirmed, regardless of whether the costs to the Owner are more expensive than those stated. 

4.6.4   The Owner is responsible for ensuring that the bag is adequately packaged for outward shipping and the Renter is responsible for ensuring that the bag is adequately packaged for return shipping. 

4.6.5   It is important that both parties retain proof of postage until the bag has been successfully returned to the Owner.

4.6.6   The Renter must return the bag to the Owner to ensure it arrives no later than 1pm the day after the last day of the Rental Period.  Delivery is subject to Royal Mail’s service restrictions for some postcodes and latest acceptance times apply when posting Special Delivery Guaranteed items. Please visit the Royal Mail website for full details. We will not be responsible for any loss in service due to Royal Mail’s operations (or lack of). We recommend that you take photos of the packaged item with the address and return address clearly visible and check the building name or number and postcode printed on your Post Office receipt.

4.7      Where the pickup option is chosen:

4.7.1   Pickup is to be agreed between the Renter and Owner. The pickup should take place at or after 12:00pm on the first day of the Rental Period and the return should take place no later than 11:59am on the last day of the Rental Period. If pickup or return occurs outside of these times the Owner’s bag will not be insured, even if they are eligible for our insurance.

4.7.2   Both parties should sign and have a copy of a receipt.  We can provide a receipt form on request.

4.7.3   We suggest that the Owner takes a photo of the Renter with the bag on pickup and the Renter takes a picture of the Owner with their bag on its return.

4.7.4   Remember that you will be meeting someone you do not know, therefore, you must be comfortable about both the pickup meeting and its location.

4.8      Rental Periods can only be extended by making an additional consecutive booking using our Website.  Any extensions must be agreed and paid for in advance of the start of the extension period to avoid losing any insurance and other protections as detailed in these terms and conditions. The pickup option should be chosen for extensions regardless of the original delivery method to avoid paying any outward shipping fees again.  If the extension booking is not accepted by the Owner by the end of your existing Rental Period you must return the bag in accordance with the existing booking,

4.9      The bag may be returned early, however, no refunds will be issued for early returns.

5.        Rules and Guidance for Owners and Renters

5.1      It is essential that contact between the Owner and the Renter (and subsequent payment) is only made via the Website.  Failure to do so will mean any rental is not covered by our protections and insurance as detailed in these terms and conditions.

5.2      We offer an Authenticity Guarantee and we require that all designer bags on our site are 100% genuine.  When registering a bag as an Owner, you declare that it is a genuine, authentic designer bag, which is listed in our Accepted Bag Brand List.  No other bags may be uploaded to our Website, unless we specifically agree otherwise.

5.3      It is the Owner’s responsibility to ensure that all details relating to the bag are correct and remain correct at all times, when it is listed on the Website, including any changes in the bag’s condition.

5.4      If it is proven that a replica bag has been rented or uploaded onto our Website, or that the Owner has falsified any information, we will charge the Owner a penalty fine of £250.  We also reserve the right to suspend or terminate the Owner’s Account.  We will reimburse the Renter any monies paid, including the full rental fee and any shipping charges (if applicable), plus £50 compensation, if it is proven that a rental has taken place where a replica has been received.

5.5      If the Owner’s bag is chosen for rental by a Renter, we will email the Owner and the Owner will have a maximum of 3 days in which to accept or reject the rental request.  If we do not receive a response from the Owner within that timeframe, we will notify the Renter that their rental request has not been successful.

5.6      If the Owner accepts the rental request, we will email the Owner to confirm the name of the Renter, the delivery address if the shipping option is chosen, and the Owner’s earnings and associated fees.  The rental revenue will be paid into the Owner’s linked PayPal account in accordance with clause 6 below. 

5.7      We will send the Renter a receipt of payment for the rental.

5.8      Cancellation fees will apply should the Owner wish to cancel a rental after it has been accepted – please refer to clause 7.

5.9      It is not possible to delete a bag from the Website at present but a listing may be closed.

6.        Fees and Payment

6.1      For Owners:

6.1.1   You can decide the rental price and Rental Period for your bag.  Guidelines for pricing are available on our Website.  The minimum nightly rental price is £15.

6.1.2   Our fee is the greater of £5 per transaction, or 20% of the total rental cost. 

6.1.3   All payments made and received via the Website will go through PayPal so you will need to ensure that your Account is linked to your PayPal account details, as otherwise we will be unable to pay you.  Please visit PayPal’s website for details of their fees for each transaction. 

6.1.4   The rental revenue with any outward shipping costs, if applicable, minus our fee as detailed in clause 6.1.2 and PayPal’s fee, will be paid into your linked PayPal account within 7 days from the date you accept the rental.

6.2      For Renters:

6.2.1   All payments made and received via the Website will be processed through PayPal including any debit and credit card payments.  

6.2.2   Once you select “Rent this bag” on the Website, PayPal will take authorisation of payment for the rental and a rental request will be sent to the Owner.

6.2.3   If your rental request is accepted, we will notify you by email and only then will PayPal take payment for the rental (together with outward shipping charges in accordance with clause 4.5, where applicable).

6.2.4   If the Owner does not respond to your request within 3 days, the request will automatically be rejected and you will not be charged.

6.3      No credit or debit card information is provided to us and completion of the transaction will be subject to you agreeing to PayPal’s terms and conditions.  A separate contractual relationship is created between you and PayPal and we cannot be held liable for any errors, actions, omissions, or incorrect charges that may be made by them.

6.4      All sums stated or referred to in these terms and conditions are payable in pounds Sterling and are inclusive of value added tax, at the appropriate rate in the UK.  We are not liable for any additional costs incurred by you for exchange rates or bank charges.

7.        Cancellation of an agreed rental

7.1      If an Owner wishes to cancel an agreed rental, the Owner is required to refund any monies paid, including the full rental fee (including the percentage paid to us), any shipping fees and the PayPal fee as stipulated in the payment receipt.  For example, if a rental cost is £50, the Renter must receive the full sum plus any shipping paid so the PayPal fee will need to be added to the refund amount.  If the Owner cancels within 2 weeks (14 calendar days) of the start of the Rental Period, a cancellation fee of £50 will also be payable to the Renter.  Failure to comply with any of the obligations in this clause 7.1 within 14 calendar days may result in the Owner being banned from using the Website. 

7.2      If an Owner makes 3 cancellations within a 12 month period, we reserve the right to review their membership of the Website.

7.3      If a Renter wishes to cancel an agreed rental, they will receive no refund for the cancellation.

8.        Delayed or Failed Return or Pickup

8.2      If the Owner does not receive the bag on the last day of the Rental Period (by 11:59am for pickup or by 1pm for shipping) and the Renter has failed to make contact in accordance with clause 8.1 above, the non-return will be considered theft. The Renter may also be charged a late return fee of £150.

8.3      Should the bag not arrive at the nominated address by 1pm, the day after the end of the Rental Period, or should the Renter fail to attend the pickup address at the correct time (by 11:59am), we recommend that the Owner contacts the Renter directly in the first instance.  If the Owner does not receive a response from the Renter, they should contact us.  If the Owner believes the bag has been stolen, they should contact the Police immediately and afterwards contact us to advise of the situation.
