CHAdeMO & Cable Rental Agreement

In this CHAdeMO & Cable Rental Agreement (the “CHAdeMO & Cable Rental Agreement”) unless the context otherwise requires, the following expressions shall have the following meanings:

“Tesla Owners UK Limited” or “Tesla Owners UK” or “Tesla Owners Group UK” or  “us” or “we” or “supplier” refers to Tesla Owners UK Limited whose registered office is Ashwood House, 1 Midsummer Dr, Grendon Underwood, Aylesbury HP18 0XH

“Goods” means any CHAdeMO adapter or Xavelec Charging Cable Set together with any accessories, packaging, instructions or other accompanying documents specified in a Contract which are available for hire to a Customer;

“Customer” or “you” means the person, firm, company or other organisation hiring Goods;

“Calendar day” means any day of the calendar week;

By renting a CHAdeMO adapter or Xavelec Charging Cable Set for a period of time from Tesla Owners UK Limited you agree to the following:

  • To treat the goods as if they’re your own and to keep them secure at all times.
  • To protect the goods from water submersion/damage.
  • To return the goods in the same condition in which you received them.
  • To inspect the goods before use, if you are not satisfied with the goods or any accessories or if you do not think the condition of the goods is satisfactory, you must notify Tesla Owners UK. In the absence of such notice, it shall be deemed that you received the goods and any accessories in perfect working order.
  • To follow the manufacturer’s guidelines on the safe use of the CHAdeMO adapter and learn how to properly use the adapter on this page or the instructions for the cable set.
  • To follow the charging guidelines and regulations at any charger.
  • To pay all costs associated with the actual connection and charging via this goods (e.g. pay Polar Chargemaster the appropriate fees for your use of their chargers).
  • To ensure the adapter and any cables connecting to the adapter are secure, not going to cause alarm, offence or damage to any 3rd party.
  • To use the goods solely for the purpose of charging your Tesla Model S or X vehicle
  • To pay £10 to have the goods shipped to you.
  • To pay £1 for each calendar day you rent the goods.
  • To pay £5 extra per rental period.
  • To securely  ship (with the included cable ties) the adapter and/or cables, all included accessories within the included protective packaging/box back to Tesla Owners UK Limited using Royal Mail Special Delivery or FedEx/UPS next day courier delivery (ensuring it’s suitable insured) or pay £10 for us to arrange collection (this must be done before purchase).
  • To pay a £18 late fee for each additional calendar day that you don’t return the goods by.
  • To be a UK national that resides in the UK.
  • To not sell, rent or dispose of the goods, any of its parts or accessories or the packaging the adapter arrives with. You must not give or try to give anyone the legal rights to the adapter or transfer legal ownership.
  • To not let anyone work on, attempt to open or fix the goods without our written permission.
  • To ensure you notify Tesla Owners UK Limited as soon as you become aware of any defect with the goods, or if the adapter is stolen or involved in an accident or broken down. Failure to notify may result in you breaking this agreement and liable to paying costs we incur. If a part has broken we will do our best to arrange a replacement unit.
  • Unless we have agreed to collect the goods from you, you must return the goods to the location we agreed. You must return any borrowed items including all accessories and packaging at a time and place we agree to. When you return the goods, a representative from Tesla Owners UK Limited must check its condition. If we have agreed to allow you to return the goods outside of our agreed times, you will stay responsible for the goods and its condition until our staff have checked it at the earliest opportunity.
  • To ensure the correct return delivery address details are securely fixed to the box along with any required shipping labels.
  • To notify Tesla Owners UK Limited if you wish to cancel 14 days or more before the rental period has started (a full refund will be given). We cannot refund if you wish to cancel within 14 days of the rental period as we most likely will have already arranged and paid for shipping, along with the potential of lost income from other rental opportunities.
  • To allow Tesla Owners UK Limited to track the location of the goods you have hired with a built-in GPS tracking device, and by agreeing to this agreement you agree that we have your consent to record and use any data we collect. The tracking device will be used to ensure safe and compliant operation of the adapter in line with the terms of this agreement. If the goods are not returned on the agreed date, time and place we will use the data recorded on the device to recover our items.
  • To not hold Tesla Owners UK Limited responsible for any misuse or damage caused from the use of this adapter or subsequent loss of time, loss of income or loss of opportunity in relation to the use or improper use of the adapter to either you or a 3rd party.
  • To ensure you correctly order the goods via our website.
  • In the situation where you fail to return the CHAdeMO adapter along with the accessories and protective box within 15 days of the end of your rental period you will be charged the rental fee (£1 per day), late fees (£18 per day) and lost charger fee (£550). In the situation where you fail to return the Xavelec cable set within 15 days of the end of your rental period you will be charged the rental fee (£1 per day), late fees (£18 per day) and lost cable set fee (£350). To be clear, we do not want to make money this way.  Much more important to us is our reputation–we never wish to be in a position where we have to tell the next renter that we don’t have a charger for them.  Therefore please be considerate to future renters who are counting on your returning the charger on a timely basis.
  • To be responsible for any loss or damage to additional equipment hired at time of rental including but not limited to protective packaging/boxes, leaflets, safety warnings etc, regardless of whether we have charged you for the use of these accessories.
  • To be responsible for all charges, even if you have asked someone else to be responsible for them.
  • In the event that the rented adapter or cable is stolen, you’re responsible for its replacement cost so please factor this into your car insurance claim/cover. You must tell Tesla Owners UK Limtied as soon as possible and confirm this in writing as soon as reasonably possible. You or any authorised user will also need to: get the names and addresses of any witnesses and give them to us; send us any notices or other documents relating to any legal proceedings arising out of the theft or loss; help us and our insurers in any legal proceedings, including allowing us to take legal action in your name and defending any legal action taken against you; and report the theft or loss to the police as soon as reasonably possible.
  • If the adapter is stolen, lost, damaged or involved in an accident you will also be responsible for paying our reasonable administration charges for dealing with this matter. Should we consider damage to the rental adapters or cables to be caused by your gross negligence, serious carelessness, or deliberate misuse, then we reserve the right to recharge the full cost of repairs regardless of the cover that has been taken out. Any call out for a customer induced fault, (e.g. forcing the charging lead incorrectly into the adapter) could lead to additional charges being applied to the rental agreement.
  • If you are involved in an accident, you must not admit that you are responsible. You should describe the situation as fully as possible when you are asked to do so by the police and Tesla Owners UK Limited. You should get the names and addresses of everyone involved, including witnesses. You should also: make sure the adapter is secure and safe; tell the police straight away if anyone is injured or if there is a disagreement over who is responsible; and contact Tesla Owners UK Limited straight away.
  • To pay all outstanding charges immediately to Tesla Owners UK Limited.

Notes:

  • If you are leaving for a full week and want the peace of mind of having your charger/adapter arrive the day prior to your trip, or perhaps your trip may extend over a weekend, we suggest you consider adding an extra day or two at point of rental to receive the best value.  Note the daily rental rates (£1 or less) are considerably less than the late fees (£18/day).

We aim to deal with all disagreements fairly and calmly. If we cannot deal with a disagreement, we may settle in the UK courts. This agreement contains all the conditions which we have agreed and replaces any written or verbal agreements we have with you.

©2018 Tesla Owners UK, Tesla Owners Group UK &/or Tesla Owners UK Limited are the names of our independent enthusiast organisation that is officially recognised by Tesla. We're not Tesla, Inc or any of its subsidiaries nor are we masquerading as them.
