All kit from a dry hire must be returned no later than arranged without authorisation from Extreme management, as it may be booked out for the next day. You will be liable for a charge if any kit is returned late and it has not been agreed.
All kit must be returned in a working manner & in the same condition you received it. In the event of any damage/breakages you agree to pay the full replacement retail cost of the item.

Outdoor structure builds:
Responsibilty of the structure will be handed over to the customer upon completion and checks from our team.
The customer is responsible for any damage, or loss to the equipment for the duration of the hire.
The customer must provide a clear site with good access for the vehicles required, if this cannot be met we must be made aware before quoting the event. The customer must make sure the area is clear of the public and other contractors where possible. We cannot accept any liability for damage to the ground or access areas – particularly in gardens, private residences or anywhere with restricted access walkways. This includes stakes put into the ground for marquee ballast. We would always reccomend trackmat on sites where available, and any costs incurred by Extreme due to poor access conditions will be passed onto the customer.
Ballast requirements as quoted must be available, whether this is a high pressure water supply & hose, or access equipment for surface ballast, or the ability to use ground anchors.
Mains power must be available and as quoted if required, this may be essential to the structure build so the customer may incur more charges if this is not available for the duration, including build & break.
