Terms and Conditions
Rent Sons Terms of Sale
Last Modified: August 2020
ACCEPTANCE OF TERMS
These terms of sale are entered into by and between You and Rent Sons Inc (“Rent Sons”, “we” or “us”). The following terms (collectively, these “Terms of Sale”), govern your use of the services offered by Rent Sons (the “Services”). The offer of Services through our website and mobile application (collectively, the “Site”) is expressly conditioned upon your acceptance of these Terms of Sale. You will be deemed to have accepted these Terms of Sale by submitting a Services request. Use of the terms “you” or “your” in these Terms of Sale, as the context requires, means and includes the person or entity on whose behalf the Services are being procured (the “User”). User is fully responsible for compliance with these Terms.
Requests: After you complete a Services request on the Site, our Scheduler will match your Services request to available Sons and Daughters. “Sons and Daughters” are independent contractors who perform Services. Rent Sons does not guarantee that any particular Services request will be fulfilled. If your Services request cannot be fulfilled, you will be informed by the scheduler as soon as reasonably possible.
Independent Contractors: Sons/Daughters are independent contractors of Rent Sons. Sons/Daughters have no authority to bind Rent Sons or you and they shall not make any agreements or representations on Rent Sons’ or your behalf without Rent Sons’ prior written consent.
Fees and Payment: Services are billed at the hourly rate per Son/Daughter based on your area. You must submit a card on file in order to get on the schedule. The Scheduler will reach out to give you instructions on how to set up a payment account if it was not done. We do not charge until the Services are complete.
Rental Minimums: There is a strict 2-hour minimum for all Services. We try to make it worth everyone’s time. We do understand walking your dog for $60 is a lot, so we recommend giving your Son or Daughter something else to do after: clean your garage, spruce up the garden, water your plants, etc. In some cases, Rent Sons offers “Bang Up Jobs” which entail under 1 hour of work for a flat rate of $50/Son. Rent Sons uses their discretion for which jobs qualify for a Bang Up Job.
Pay What You Rent: When you rent a Son or Daughter, you pay for the time you reserved him/he. If the Son or Daughter finishes the job early, that’s great! Feel free to give them more tasks to fill the time. If the Services take longer, you’ll pay the additional time the Son or Daughter is there.
We’re Quality! But We Aren’t Pros: When you rent Sons or Daughters, you rent quality workers. They are not professionals that have 20 years of experience and thousands of dollars in equipment. However, for most jobs we think you’ll be blown away with how well they work. In some cases, our scheduler may suggest that you should leave the job to the pros. We are happy to help refer you to the right person if that’s the case. However, we are not responsible if you later determine that you should have hired a person with skilled expertise in the area.
Tips: Our culture is this: If the Son or Daughter does a good job, please tip them!
Tools and Materials: All Sons and Daughters are independent contractors. We do not provide them tools unless you rent tools for them from us. The tool rental charge for standard hand tools varies by job. Any such tool rental charge is in addition to charges for materials (for example: paint for a painting job). We will bring the brushes, but you need to buy the paint.
Insurance, Property Damage and Personal Injury: We cover each Son/Daughter with $1 million general liability policy. You may request a copy of our insurance certificate at any time. Rent Sons will not cover any damages out of pocket over $1,000. You must provide a detailed description and photographs of any such potential claims no later than thirty days following the completion of Services. We are not responsible for damages incurred because the Son/Daughter relied on your advice, direction, assistance, tools and/or supplies in performing the Services. We reserve the right to repair the damages ourselves and will not reimburse you for repairs made by persons who have not been authorized by us to repair the damage. For each Son hour rented, there is a $1/Son hour insurance fee.
Lunch Breaks: If the Sons or Daughters are scheduled to work at least 6 hours, they are allowed a 30-minute paid lunch break.
Sunday & Holiday Jobs: If your timing is not flexible, we may accept a holiday or Sunday job, at Rent Sons discretion. For Sundays, we charge $45 per hour, and our rates on holidays vary.
Disputes and Liability: In the event that you have a dispute with a Son/Daughter, you release Rent Sons from any and all claims, demands, or damages (actual or consequential) of every kind and nature, known and unknown, suspected and unsuspected, disclosed and undisclosed, arising out of or in any way connected with such disputes. TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PROVIDED BY LAW, IN NO EVENT WILL RENT SONS, ITS AFFILIATES, OR THEIR LICENSORS, SERVICE PROVIDERS, EMPLOYEES, AGENTS, OFFICERS, OR DIRECTORS (INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, OUR COMMUNITY BUILDERS) BE LIABLE FOR DAMAGES OF ANY KIND, UNDER ANY LEGAL THEORY, ARISING OUT OF OR IN CONNECTION WITH THIS AGREEMENT, INCLUDING ANY DIRECT, INDIRECT, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, OR PUNITIVE DAMAGES, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO, PERSONAL INJURY, PAIN AND SUFFERING, EMOTIONAL DISTRESS, LOSS OF REVENUE, LOSS OF PROFITS, LOSS OF BUSINESS OR ANTICIPATED SAVINGS, LOSS OF USE, LOSS OF GOODWILL, LOSS OF DATA, AND WHETHER CAUSED BY TORT (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE), BREACH OF CONTRACT, OR OTHERWISE, EVEN IF FORESEEABLE. THE FOREGOING DOES NOT AFFECT ANY LIABILITY THAT CANNOT BE EXCLUDED OR LIMITED UNDER APPLICABLE LAW.
We understand that life is unpredictable and things happen. As long as you let us know more than 24 hours before the scheduled appointment, there’s no cancellation fee. If you need to cancel within 24 hours, we will have to charge you for 50% of your reserved time. In some special cases—such as a family emergency—we may consider waiving the 50% charge and simply rescheduling the job. Please understand that we review these on a case-by-case basis and generally require documentation of the emergency.
KEEP OUR SONS AND DAUGHTERS SAFE
Moving: The Community Builder may decide a moving job is too strenuous or difficult for the Son or Daughter.
Landscaping: Although we are insured, we do not use power tools like chainsaws or climb tall ladders.
Roofs: We do not go on roofs.
Painting: We will only paint first level exterior unless you speak more in depth with your Community Builder. We have experienced Sons and Daughters that can paint your house, but we need a heads up in advance of booking.
Uncleanliness: If the job site has black mold, feces, hazardous chemicals, or if there are other hazardous conditions at your house, you should call a professional.
If Rent Sons cannot perform any of its obligations because of events beyond our reasonable control, then Rent Sons will not be liable to you for failure to perform.
Rent Sons has no obligation to make repairs to any incidental damage that results from providing the Services. In the event that the Services result in damage or injury, Rent Sons shall only be responsible for damages up to $1,000 and shall not be liable to you for money damages exceeding that amount.
Rent Sons is not liable for any damage caused by insufficient disclosure in writing of the value, weight and/or fragility of items that are handled in connection with the Services. If such items have a value over $1,000, you are required to disclose the value to us in writing prior to performance of the Services.
No waiver by Rent Sons of any term or condition set out in these Terms of Sale shall be deemed a further or continuing waiver of such term or condition or a waiver of any other term or condition, and any failure of Rent Sons to assert a right or provision under these Terms of Sale shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision.
If any provision of these Terms of Sale is held by a court or other tribunal of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, illegal or unenforceable for any reason, such provision shall be eliminated or limited to the minimum extent such that the remaining provisions of the Terms of Sale will continue in full force and effect.
Rent Sons may revise and update these Terms of Sale from time to time in our sole discretion. All changes are effective immediately, and apply to all Services requests made through the Site thereafter. Any changes to these Terms of Sale will not apply to any Services request received by us before such changes are made.
