No matter whether you’re planning a wedding or corporate event, we want to help you create a moment to remember. This is why we have a wide range of equipment, furniture and accessories to help furnish your marquee. All of our items are available for hire and come with a damage waiver, as standard. But what is a damage waiver? And how does it protect you during an event?
What Is a Damage Waiver?
Within the marquee and event hire industry, it is commonplace that the hirer (the client/customer) is responsible for the care of all equipment during the hire period. This information will be clearly stated through the booking form and your contract. The marquees and furniture available to hire, such as those within our own collection, is of the highest quality and has a high value. This legal responsibility is in place to prevent damage from hindering our ability to help every customer with their needs.
A Damage Waiver transfers the insurance risk of accidental loss or damage to its equipment back to the supplier, instead of the customer.
Can I Get My Own Insurance?
Some clients will organise their own insurance that covers both accidental loss or damage. Some standard wedding or event insurance policies will provide this as standard. Our damage waiver is in place to provide a cost-effective alternative to this. It allows you to organise the entire degree of protection through one party.
Please note, damage waivers are NOT an alternative to event insurance or wedding insurance. These cover a wide scope of possibilities and are, in our opinion, essential for your own financial security. However, this option provides peace of mind when it comes to the management and care of your hired items.
What Is Covered by a Damage Waiver?
Our damage waiver is automatically included in your booking and covers against the cost of repairs needed to the marquee’s structure and any hired equipment provided within your package. Please note, damage waivers don’t cover wilful neglect or legal negligence. For example, if our equipment or marquees were left unattended in a public space without the proper security.
More information about our Damage Waiver is available from your Carron Marquee representative. These forms of insurance are in place to serve both us and our clients, ensuring you can focus on creating an event that everyone will surely remember.
