Pushchairs, Prams and baby equipment:
Please ensure that you have selected the most suitable product to support the weight and size of your child. Some pushchairs will only support a child of up to 15kgs in weight some will support a child up to 23kgs in weight. We cannot be held liable in the event of any accident due the child exceeding the weight capacity of the pushchair. Charges will be made for any damage to products due to the weight limits being exceeded. This could be up to the full cost of a replacement product.
All our rental products are cleaned prior to rental and whilst they are not always ‘new’ they should be delivered to you in a reasonable clean condition. If you are not satisfied with the cleanliness of the product, please advise us at delivery and we will ensure you are issued with a suitably clean product. Similarly, we expect our products to be returned in a reasonably clean condition. Whilst we always expect some ‘wear and tear’ and some necessary cleaning. Charges will be made and deposits withheld for pushchairs or items returned in an unacceptably soiled and dirty condition. We ask clients refrain from feeding children or applying sun-protection cream to children whilst they are sat in the pushchairs. Pushchairs are not designed for beach use and we request that all pushchairs are returned cleaned and free of sand and debris.
Weight capacity of our manual wheelchairs is 110kgs. We cannot be held responsible in the event of an accident due to the weight capacity being exceeded. Wheelchairs are not designed for beach use. Please use only on the designated wheelchair paths and walkways in beach areas. Please do not apply sun screen whilst sat in the wheelchairs. Charges will be made and deposits withheld for wheelchairs returned dirty, soiled or covered in sand.
Portable AC units:
Please read below the operating instructions for the AC units in order you are aware how they function prior to booking.
Portable Ac unit: directions / instructions
Thank you for hiring one of our portable air – conditioning units. Although we have several different models available they all work in much the same way and as such we have laid out a few instructions below to help you.
After plugging in the unit please ensure the plastic corrugated exhaust hose is fixed to the rear of the unit. Place this hose out of a balcony door or window closing the door or window on the hose to keep it closed as much as possible. If you have curtains, use this to cover the remaining gap.
Please make sure all rubber or plastic stoppers are fixed in place at the rear of machines or in the case of some machines the ‘pull out’ plastic bucket is slid in completely and lies flush against the outer casing of the machine.
Turn on the machine. Most machines have 3 operating modes. AC / FAN / DE-HUMIDIFY and some also have a heating mode.
AC function = Cools and de humidifies.
De humidify = De humidifies but does not cool the air.
Fan = Does not cool or de-humidify acts as a fan circulating the air at room temperature.
Press the mode button on your AC unit until the AC symbol shows, this is sometimes illuminated depending on your model and is normally shown as a snowflake or as simply AC. When the machine is first turned on or if you have changed the mode it may take a minute or two for the AC system to start functioning properly. So, if not immediately you should feel the cool air blow through within a couple of minutes. We recommend keeping the AC unit on AC function. After all this is what you have hired it for. You will also see you can put the temperature up and down using the up ‘^’ and down ‘v’ arrows or ‘+ and – ‘buttons. Again, we recommend you set this to the lowest setting to get the best cooling results. The coolest setting is normally 17 / 18 Degrees C. on most machines.
Emptying the machines
When used as AC units or as De-humidifiers the machines absorb the moisture from the room. This moisture collects in a well / bucket inside the machine. When this well is full the machine will no longer function as an AC unit. It either stop working altogether or it will continue to work, but only as a fan. The unit will notify you that it is full by making a beeping noise or with an illuminated light or ‘bucket full’ icon. for the machine to function normally again you must drain the machine to do this you need to remove the rubber / plastic plug / bung or in some machines take out the removable plastic bucket drawer. Once the machine has drained completely it should function normally once again. It is best to drain the machine over an exterior drain, on a terrace or balcony or in a bath. Please do not drain the machines onto your room floor, and please do not drink the water collected inside the machines.
Machine leaking or dripping water – please make sure the plastic plug or bung is fitted in the back or empty the plastic bucket.
Machine not giving out cool air – please ensure the mode is set to AC and the temperature is set to lowest possible. If the machine is in continuous use it may be necessary to clean the filters. To do this please remove the filters from the machine. The filters will either slide out or clip off the machine and they are normally situated at the side or rear of the machines. Use a dry cloth and damp sponge to remove excess dust and return the filter to the machine.
If your machine displays an error message please carry out all the above steps disconnect the unit from the mains and reconnect it.
If all the above fails or if you have any other problem with the AC unit please call us directly on 0034 619571803, 628135198, or 699105672or ask your reception to contact us.
