Terms & Conditions

1 Definitions

Contract - the document or documents that set out these conditions and all other details about your agreement with us.

We, us – GH Group of Companies incorporating GH Energy Rentals Ltd and GH Hire Ltd  

You - the person, firm, company or other organisation hiring or buying the goods from us.

These conditions override any terms and conditions you may have put forward, unless we have agreed to any other conditions in writing.

These conditions do not affect your rights as a person dealing as a consumer, not for business purposes.

The contract will be governed by and interpreted in accordance with Republic of Ireland law.


2 Our charges

a. Charges for hiring goods

You must pay the hire charges shown in the contract. Hire charges will start at the time shown in the contract and will continue until:

• we have given you a collection or off-hire number; or

• you have returned the goods to us in a clean and usable condition and we have given you a receipt for them;

whichever is earlier.


Hire charges are due all the time you have the goods including Saturdays, Sundays and public holidays. You must pay all charges you owe when we ask for them.


b. Payment terms for buying goods

We will agree Payment Terms with you in writing when we agree to let you have a monthly account. These Payment Terms must be strictly observed. Where no Payment Terms are agreed, payment will be made in advance of delivery of goods.  All capital items purchased will be paid for on delivery of the goods.


c. Interest and other charges

If you do not pay any amount when it is due, we will add interest to the amount that is overdue. We will add interest each day at a rate equal to 4% above the Allied Irish Bank DAC's base rate at the time. Charging interest will not affect any

other rights we may have. You must also pay any of our reasonable expenses in recovering money or goods from you.


3 Delivery and collection charges

You must pay us any agreed charges for delivering or collecting the goods. If we

quote carriage charges, these only cover the time needed to load or unload our vehicle at the address you have specified. You must pay

 extra for any further time you cause us to spend, including if we try to follow your instructions for

delivering or collecting the goods but cannot do so because of your acts or failure to do something.


4 Maximum hire period (if you are not a company or corporation)

If you are not a company or corporation, the contract will end within 3 months of the beginning of the period of hire. If you have not already done so you must return the goods to us on the day before the end of the 3-month period. If you fail to do this we may charge you for any financial loss we suffer as a result.


5 When the contract starts

The contract comes into effect when you have placed an order and agreed to keep to these conditions, and we have accepted your order.


6 Safety instructions for hired goods

You must make sure that everyone who uses the goods is properly instructed on how to use them safely and correctly, and that they have all the instructions we have supplied. You must make sure the goods are not misused.


7 Your responsibility when hiring goods

a. You must unload and load the goods at the address specified by you. You must also load and unload the goods at our premises when you, or your agent, collect or return the goods. If we supply any person to help you, you must give

him or her clear instructions when necessary.

b. You become responsible for the goods when you, or your agent, receive them. If the goods are delivered to you, this will be when your responsibility starts. Your responsibilities include protecting the goods and keeping them safe from the weather, theft, vandalism or improper use. At the end of the hire period you must return the goods unless you have made arrangements for us to collect them. Your responsibility does not end until the goods have been returned or collected and we are able to give you a receipt for them. You must not sell or in any way give up control of the goods.

c. You will be responsible for any death, injury, loss or damage caused by the

goods being misused while they are hired to you.


8 Electrical goods

If any part of the goods is electrical, it should be used with the original plugs or sockets fitted to it. If you need to fit other suitable plugs or sockets to the goods, this must be carried out by a competent person who must also return the goods to their original condition. You must make sure you have a suitable supply of electricity for the goods. Never use electrical goods that are not earthed correctly unless the goods are double insulated. You must keep to all regulations which apply, including the Electricity Regulation Act 1999, while you are responsible for the goods.

9 Maintaining hired goods, breakdown procedures and reporting accidents

You must make sure the goods remain safe, clean and in working order. If the goods break down or are not working properly you must report this to us immediately. You must not repair the goods unless you are authorised by us. You must return the goods for us to examine them unless we have agreed otherwise. You must tell us immediately if the goods are involved in any accident resulting in damage to the goods or to other property, or injury to any person. You must take all necessary steps to make the goods safe and to protect them against theft or damage.


10 Where hired goods are placed

The hired goods must not be moved from any site agreed by us unless you have our written permission.


11 Limitation of liability
