These Terms of Service apply to all users of our services and/or equipment. Any use of the above terminology or other words in the singular, plural, capitalization and/or he/she/it or they, are taken as interchangeable and therefore as referring to same.

Overview of Services

Upon purchase of our services, PNS shall rent the equipment to the Renter for the rental period. At the commencement of the rental period, PNS shall deliver the equipment to the Renter’s current address and at the end of the rental period, will pick up the equipment from the Renter’s new address. PNS does NOT assist with packing or moving, which shall be the sole responsibility of the Renter. All equipment shall remain the sole and exclusive property of PNS.

Rental Period

PNS’ standard and minimum rental period is fourteen (14) days. Should the Renter require the equipment for a shorter period of time, the Renter will still be charged for a fourteen (14) day period, regardless of whether the equipment is returned before the end of the rental period. PNS may accommodate longer-term rentals, subject to equipment availability.

Delivery Area

PNS only provides services to Renters who are within our delivery area (both on delivery and pick up of equipment). Click here to see the regions that we service; however, we may also service you if you reside within 100 kilometres from Grimsby, Ontario, Canada in our sole discretion.

Reserving Equipment

The Renter must visit the Bins page on the website and choose the length of its rental period, subject to the above restrictions. The minimum amount of bins a Renter can rent is twenty (20) bins. The Renter can also choose from optional equipment add-ons after adding the Renter’s desired number of bins to its cart. Once the Renter has submitted its order on our website, PNS will check availability of equipment and, if sufficient equipment is available, PNS will send the Renter an email confirming the rental with further instructions as to next steps. For greater certainty, submitting an order on our website is NOT a guarantee of equipment availability. PNS encourages all Renter’s to read the FAQ on our website to better understand the rental process.

Payment

Payment is due IN FULL upon purchasing our services. Upon checkout on our website, the Renter must choose between e-transfer or credit card payment.

  • If paying via e-transfer, the Renter will select e-transfer as its chosen method of payment. The Renter will then receive an email stating the order is “on hold” until payment has been received. PNS will reserve the Renter’s order for twenty-four (24) hours after checkout, while waiting for the e-transfer to be received. If payment has not been received within twenty-four (24) hours, PNS will cancel the Renter’s order. If payment is received within twenty-four (24) hours, PNS will send the Renter an email confirming the rental, subject to equipment availability.
  • If paying via credit card, the Renter will select credit card as its chosen method of payment. PNS uses Stripe as a third party credit card payment processor and will not have access to the Renter’s credit card number, except for the last four (4) digits. Stripe accepts payment via MasterCard, Visa, American Express, and Discover. Upon checkout, a pre-authorization will be initiated for the full amount owing for PNS’s services; however, this amount will not be processed until PNS has checked equipment availability and confirmed the Renter’s order.

By agreeing to these Terms of Service, you hereby agree to pay all fees and charges specified on our website, including under these Terms of Service, for the services for which you purchase. All fees are exclusive of applicable taxes, unless otherwise stated, and you are solely responsible for the payment of any such tax that may be imposed on your use of the services. We will charge any fees or other payments you authorize to the account and credit card you designate. If payment is not received from your credit card or other payment method, you agree to pay all amounts due on demand by us. We reserve the right to change the fees for our services or charge a fee where one was not previously charged. All fees charged are final and non-refundable, except as explicitly set out herein.

Changes to Order

PNS requests that Renter’s call, text, or email PNS immediately upon requiring a change to its rental period or an increase to the amount of equipment ordered. PNS will try to accommodate the change, subject to equipment availability.

  • For requested changes to the rental period, if the length of the rental period is not changing but the dates are, PNS will accommodate the change free of charge, subject to equipment availability. If the length of the rental is increasing, PNS will accommodate the change upon payment of PNS’s daily rate for equipment rental for the increased period and subject to equipment availability. If PNS cannot accommodate the new dates and the Renter needs to cancel its order, PNS will process the cancellation, subject to the cancellation policy.
  • For requested changes to the amount or type of equipment, the Renter can request additional equipment. Subject to availability and upon payment for the additional equipment and delivery fees, if the original order has already been delivered to the Renter, the Renter will be emailed a link to schedule another Delivery, and will pay a delivery fee even if the Renter qualified for free delivery on their previous order. If the order has not been delivered yet, there will be no extra delivery charges and the Renter will just pay the difference.

Cancellation Policy

PNS may offer a refund if the Renter cancels its order more than forty-eight (48) hours prior to its scheduled delivery time. For a successfully cancelled order, the full amount will be refunded to the Renter, LESS a five percent (5%) administrative fee. If a Renter cancels its order within forty-eight (48) hours, the Renter will not receive a refund, but will receive a PNS credit for the amount of the order LESS a five percent (5%) administrative fee that can be used toward future rentals of equipment. If the Renter cancels its order after delivery of the equipment, there will be no refund or credit given to the Renter.

Refused Entry

If for any reason the Renter does not select a pick up date or time, refuses to allow PNS to pick up the equipment or does not answer the door at the specified pick up address at the confirmed pick up time, there will be strictly penalties for the Renter, as such equipment was likely required for another PNS customer. PNS shall be entitled to charge twice the typical daily rate for rental of the equipment per each day the equipment is held by the Renter after the end of the rental period. PNS shall also be entitled to charge additional pick up fees at the rate specified above for each kilometre travelled in attempt to pick up the equipment. In the event that the pick up cannot be facilitated within fourteen (14) days from the end of the rental period, the Renter will be charged the full replacement fees for the equipment, as specified below.

Condition of Equipment

PNS warrants that all equipment will be in satisfactory operating condition at the time of delivery, subject to reasonable wear and tear. Immediately upon delivery, the Renter is encouraged to carefully inspect the equipment to determine whether it has been damaged during delivery. The Renter shall inform PNS within twenty-four (24) hours of delivery if any such damage is identified and PNS may replace such equipment free of charge, with no extra delivery charges. If the Renter fails to notify PNS of such damage within twenty-four (24) hours of delivery, the Renter shall be deemed to have accepted the equipment as being in acceptable operating condition.

Damage Deposit

Upon Requesting a Delivery Time, PNS will process a damage deposit of $250.00 to the Renter’s credit card in order to encourage the Renter to take care of our equipment. This will result in pre-authorization to the Renter’s credit card, but the credit card will not officially be charged until PNS determines the total amount of any fees to be charged to the Renter in accordance with these Terms of Service. For greater certainty, if the fees PNS is entitled to retain from the damage deposit as set out herein exceed $250.00, PNS WILL BE ENTITLED TO CHARGE THE FULL VALUE of such fees to the credit card used pay the damage deposit and PNS WILL NOT be limited to $250.00 in respect of same. There is no option to pay the damage deposit via e-transfer.  

Cleaning Fees

PNS will have inspected, cleaned and sanitized all equipment with our eco-friendly cleaner prior to delivery. Upon pick up of the equipment, the Renter is not required to clean the equipment; however, if PNS determines, in its sole discretion, that there is excessive debris, dirt, or pet fur in or on the equipment, PNS shall be entitled to charge a cleaning fee of $2.00 per piece of equipment, which shall be retained from the aforementioned damage deposit.

Replacement Fees

Proper care of the equipment during the rental period shall be the sole responsibility of the Renter. The following replacement fees shall apply in the event that the equipment is damaged, lost, stolen or not returned (regardless of whether such damage, loss or theft is due to the fault of the Renter):

  • $125.00 per bin;
  • $100.00 per divider; and
  • $150.00 per dolly

PNS shall be entitled to retain the above fees from the aforementioned damage deposit; however, in the event the damage deposit is not sufficient to cover the full replacement fees, PNS shall be entitled to charge the full value of the replacement fees to the credit card on file. Equipment should always be left inside to avoid the chance of theft or damage. The Renter SHALL NOT use tape or labels on any of the equipment, other than the labels that PNS provides to the Renter, which may be placed on the bins. Such labels are only to be placed on the rough spot on the side of the bin below the handles, and shall not be placed over the logo as this will cause damage and may result in charges to the Renter.
