  1. The LendLab Service

The Service allows customers to access the Site and purchase or borrow products from LENDLAB in accordance with these Terms of Use. The customer can choose products to borrow from our online selection, and have them shipped to the customer's address. This is done with a return date. We reserve the right to limit the number of items that a member may borrow at any time. The currently available borrowing options and costs, are outlined in detail on the Site.

The hired item will always remain the property of LENDLAB LIMITED. If the User has not returned the rental items 30 days after the return date, we will assume the item is not going to be returned and will charge the users payment method 100% of the recommended retail price of the item(s) minus the value of the rental and late fees the user has already paid. (See Rental Period and Late Fees)

 5.1 Garment:

By accepting these terms and conditions you agree with the following; that you must follow all instructions we provide with the garment both for its use and packing. That you will treat the garment with the same respect you would apply had you borrowed it from a close friend, in a proper manner and with due care. The value of the garment is as advertised on the Site. The garment may not be an exact match for the colour or definition in the photos shown. You will examine and try on the Garment immediately following its delivery and tell us without delay if it is suffering from any damage, does not fit or is in any way short of the description we have supplied on the Site, in cases where this does not happen we will make charges for cleaning and/or repairs. Under no circumstances will you alter, add to or clean the Garment in any way. If done so, LENDLAB reserves the right to invoice for part or full replacement value of the items and charge you the full amount of any potential lost earnings or incurred costs regardless of whether any damage has been caused.

 5.2 Damages

The User is solely responsible for the apparel they have rented and is therefore liable for any damage or loss that occurs during the rental period. If a product is returned in a damaged or reduced condition to that which it was sent in and that exceeds normal wear and tear, as determined by LENDLAB in its sole discretion, you agree that LENDLAB may charge you up to 100% of the original RRP of the apparel item. The user remains liable for the replacement of this item regardless of whether they are personally responsible for the damage because in ordering the item they agreed to take responsibility for the apparel. The product replacement fee will vary depending on the specifics of each dress and its amount is to the full discretion of LENDLAB.

5.3 Rental Period and Late Fees

The rental period starts from couriered delivery of the ordered item to when item/s are dropped off at any UK Royal Mail Post Office. Should LENDLAB items not be sent back on the agreed rental return date, LENDLAB is entitled to charge additional hire fees to the user’s payment method which was provided at the time of the original rental. If the return day falls on a Sunday where Royal Mail Post Offices are closed you will be liable for returning a day earlier of by 12pm the Monday after, any later than this and you will be charged late fees.

Late Fees:

  • A fee of 50% of the rental price will be charged for every day the garment is late until the charges make up the RRP of the garment.
  • If the outfit is not returned within 10 days, we will assume it is lost and will charge you 100% of the item’s RRP value.

5.4 Shipping

To see current shipping policies governing the delivery and return of products please see Delivery and Returns Page on the Site. Delivery time for products you have selected to borrow may vary based upon (a) inventory availability, (b) your delivery address, (c) when you place an order, and (d) other circumstances impacting delivery. Our acceptance of your order will take place when we email you to accept it, at which point a contract will be made between you and us. If we cannot accept your order we will inform you of this and not charge you for your order. LENDLAB makes no guarantees as to actual delivery time as any delivery time or date given by LENDLAB to you is an estimate only. We are not responsible for delivery delays outside of our control. If such occurs we will contact you as soon as possible to inform you. If the item is delivered late the user must accept delivery unless an alternative agreement is reached between LENDLAB and you. The risk of loss for items shipped passes to you upon delivery by the carrier. We will send you an email letting you know when your product is shipped. We do not accept orders from, nor ship to, addresses outside of the UK. If after a failed delivery to you, you do not re-arrange delivery or collect them from a delivery depot we will contract you for further instructions and may charge you for storage costs and any further delivery costs.  If, despite our reasonable efforts we are unable to contact you or re-arrange delivery or collection we may end the contract.

5.5 Returns:

You may return an unworn rented item and obtain a refund. You must deposit the unworn item with the ribbon label still attached in the returns bag provided and return at any UK Royal Mail Post Office from within 24 hours of receiving the garment. Should the apparel be kept for more than 24 hours by the customer, but expects a full refund on all dresses - LENDLAB reserves the right to charge the full rental fee for the item.
