Blue Light Blocking Glasses
Hiring Terms & Conditions
The terms and conditions explained in layman's:
You, can pay a $39.00 (inc GST) security deposit to hire the glasses for 7 days for you and your children to try out at home. You can collect the glasses from Clint at Coaching sessions you or your child attends from Jasper the Support Worker, request postage, or arrange to collect from our home in Maroochydore.
If the Coaching session day and time has to be postponed you have 48-hours to collect (by arrangement) before the late fee kicks in (we understand you or your child may become ill or life gets in the way, so we're allowing you 2 more days to come and collect the glasses from our home or at a Coaching session if postponed to within 48-hours of the original hire start date).
If requiring postage for the hire pair you are responsible for returning the items via organising and paying for postage and you have a maximum of 7 days to use/wear the pair with the addition of 2 extra business days at the end of that period to place in the post. A 500g Standard Australia Post satchel is required. If you opt out of paying extra for insurance you are responsible for any loss or damage and loss as per details below.
The $39.00 will be refunded in full after you return the glasses to us (depending on the condition - we take before and after photos) or you can opt to pay the remaining amount for the full retail cost of $85.00 and own a brand new pair (or ask for more pairs for other family members).
Postage costs will not be reimbursed.
