Terms And Conditions

 

We believe in full transparency and work to provide all 'what if' scenarios we can think of.  ESPECIALLY WITH SETUP AND TAKE DOWN SERVICE.  If you are here, then thank you for taking the time and please read all info as these are our policies.  Just as in renting anything or contracting with any company, we give you the fine print so you know up-front what to expect.

Saturday Orders:

NOTICE:  IF YOU WAIT UNTIL SATURDAY/CHECK-IN DAY TO ORDER, YOU WILL NOT RECEIVE YOUR ORDER UNTIL SUNDAY MORNING. YOU ARE WELCOME TO PICK UP ITEMS FROM OUR WAREHOUSE, BUT WAITING UNTIL THE LAST MINUTE TO ORDER IS A DETRIMENT TO YOU.  THERE WILL NO CREDITS OR REFUNDS GIVEN,

 

Free Delivery:

Our main delivery days are Saturday and Sunday.  If your check-in date is any other date, please call the office BEFORE ordering as during prime rental weeks, any other check-out day beyond Saturday and Sunday disrupts our inventory rentals.  In addition, we offer free delivery on your check-in day.  If you discover you want additional items, then you will be subject to a delivery fee of $10 that will be added to your order.

Sales & Promotions:

We, as any business, reserves the right to offer sales and other discounted promotions at our preference.  Way too often many customers see a sales promotion being offered weeks or even months after they placed their order and want the discounted pricing.  Sorry, but that's NOT how it works folks.  Example.  You folks grocery shop, car shop, go on sale.  You don't go to the grocery store andto Lowes, Home Depot etc. and you may buy a product and then the next week that gallon of milk and other items goes  tell management you want the discounted pricing.  The same situation applies to our business.  Once you order and the sale is completed, it's done, it's over with.  We may run a sale weeks or months later but you do not qualify to have a discount applied.  My goodness, just think if we applied this logic to everything we purchase, every single retailer would have to hire people just to refund when items go on sale.  We strive to offer you our best pricing the first time around but sometimes we may run a promotion based on excess inventory for particular upcoming vacation weeks that we are heavy on and need to move it in the form of rentals.  We as a business reserve that right to discount without penalty.

Coupon Codes:  We typically run a discount promotion during January of each year and a coupon code is advertised online as well as in emails.  Please be sure you're entering the code in the Coupon Code Box AND clicking the 'apply' button.   DO NOT PROCEED IF YOU DON'T SEE THE DISCOUNT, refresh your page and check the code and click the apply button again. Failure to enter the code and your request to adjust the discount results in a $5.00 fee as our Credit Card Processor charges us this amount plus the 3% credit card fee in the difference.

CREDIT CARD DISPUTES:

While we strive to appease everyone, there will ultimately be some that we just can't appease.  We make all of our policies clear and place them here to be read to not only protect the company but you as a customer.  In ordering from us online, there is a box which you MUST check that says you 'accept terms and conditions'.  When you check that box it means you are in agreement with our policies and that you have read them.

BICYCLES:

LOCK UP ALL BICYCLES.  LOCK UP BIKES WHEREVER YOU GO.  If bikes are stolen while in your possession your card is charged.  As with all rental items, you're responsible for the items  you rent.

Delivery Dates/Saturday orders:

ALL DELIVERIES ARE BASED ON ISLAND DELIVERIES.  IF YOU ARE ON THE MAINLAND REGARDLESS OF CONVENIENCE DO NOT ORDER ONLINE WITHOUT FIRST CALLING THE OFFICE TO ENSURE WE WILL BE ABLE TO DELIVER.

Do not under any circumstances enter into the check-in date anything other than your check-in date.  Our system is inventory fool-proof, meaning that our inventory is online controlled and some inventory won't be available until a Sunday because of other guests check-out dates.  If you select another day for check-in, you will NOT be delivered those items until that day as on Saturday we already have our trucks loaded and staged for delivery and we will NOT make exceptions to the customers whom ordered correctly and there will be NO credits issued.  Please also bear in mind your inputting the incorrect date also has a bearing on setup and take down services and you will find yourself missing a day and again, there will be no credits issued.  Cheating the system to gain an inventory reservation cheats you, so please give thought to your actions just to make a reservation.  If you enter the wrong date, there will be NO Refunds/credits given.

EARLY DEPARTURES:

In an effort to PREVENT THEFT, you must notify the office immediately of an earlier departure versus your check-out date.  We do realize emergencies happen that necessitate your having to leave early, but you ARE RESPONSBILE for all beach items until check-out date and if items are stolen because they were left unattended under your rental unit for a day or days, then you will be charged for the missing items.

Missing Items At Check-in:

YOU MUST NOTIFY US BY NOON THE DAY AFTER ARRIVAL OR IT IS CONSIDERED 'ALL ITEMS DELIVERED', NO EXCEPTIONS!

BROKEN CHAIRS, other items AFTER DELIVERY:

Backpack chairs are the easiest chairs to abuse because of the way people do not SIT in the chair but PLOP in the chair.  The chairs, when manufactured, are reinforced internally on the lower front and rear of the legs about 3 to 4 inches up on either side.  When they break its because you've PLOPPED into the chair instead of sitting typically,(Aluminum doesn't rust but will oxidize and they can break from that and it's normal wear and we take that into account) All it takes is one time to PLOP into the chair and you've created a small indentation, then the more you sit and wiggle in the chair the more pressure that is being applied to that area where the indentation occurred.  It will break even sooner if you recline flat in the chair and you MUST use the 'towel/support' bar at the top of the chair before reclining to give the chair added support.  If you break a chair during your rental, you will be responsible for the replacement cost of the chair in addition we will NOT bring you another chair to replace.  The exception to this is if a chair breaks within 24 hours of delivery to your home, so if it's Wednesday and you've had the chair for days, then it didn't just break, it broke because you're not using the chair properly but our inspection of the chair will determine whether it was an oxidation break or improper use. Just as with Beachwear stores and you buy a chair, if it breaks,  they will NOT accept a return of it and neither do we.  In 2022 we replaced over 80 chairs at a cost of $40 each and we have to reign in this abuse.  We do not redeliver a replacement chair, you will have to come and pick up a replacement at our shop at:

6741 Beach Drive

Unit 4.  We are behind the Body Edge Fitness Center.

Anchors, umbrellas that break after 24 hours of being delivered:

We deliver ONCE for free.   We do not run a gopher service to replace items that break.  You are required to bring broken beach items to our shop for switchout.

ITEMS STOLEN/LEFT ON THE BEACH

Any items left on the beach and you leave the beach for any reason, even in the innocence of going back to the house for lunch, or a storm comes in and you wait hours to go back and your chairs or umbrellas are 'gone', you are responsible for the replacement costs of those items.  Drop-off items are your responsibility.  Treat everything you rent as if it's your own money as it is.

Setup Service Refunds and general cancellations:

NO REFUNDS/RAINCHECKS on any rentals of any type.

This means no refunds on current orders in place.  We realize that you may have ordered in January and it's now May and you're not coming until June, but once an order is placed, it is considered permanent and we do not allow for cancellatioins but will apply the amount towards a future credit for up through the next operating season.  See Insurance below in BOLD.

Our No Refund/raincheck policy is inline with other businesses in the area.  Here are some examples:

If the A/C or fridge goes out in your rental house, the realty company does not offer your credit nor refund you for the inconvenience, because things just happen and it's no ones fault.  It's inconvenient, yes.

Ever booked an airline ticket?  Unless you pay considerably more, your standard airfare after 24 hours is set, any cancellations or changes means you lose your money on the initial reservation.  I won't even go into talking about being refused to board a plane with a ticket in your hand.

I can go on and on with numerous examples but the gist of the story is this, we make you aware of our policy upfront.  Other companies do as well, some even have some squirrely wording such as 'only after 3 days of service are you entitled to a refund'..etc.  That's just not how we operate.  We have had an established NO REFUND policy for years.  The onus is on you the customer to continue to order or not to and order elsewhere.  We can't make you read the fine print, even though it's here for you but we really wish you would as we want you to have the information necessary to make an informed decision.  We do not feel that's too much to ask unless your money is really worthless to you and we know it's not but when weather interrupts our process, we do stand by our policy. Anytime you contract and or rent with any company, you agree to their rules, please try to remember that.  If you're too worried about the setup service then please just order drop off items to your home and you can be responsible for them every day of the week and have them at your leisure to use.

We strongly encourage you to SHOP for vacation insurance that covers you for beach equipment rentals as we do not refund for any reasons.  Realty Companies and online sites give you the option to purchase vacation insurance and some offer coverage for sporting equipment rentals and others don't, so shop accordingly and again, be aware of our policy.

NOTE:

FOR 7.5 UMBRELLA CUSTOMERS. YOU ARE STILL RESPONSIBLE FOR BEACH SAFETY AND IF YOU LEAVE THE BEACH FOR ANY REASON, PLEASE LOWER THE UMBRELLA. WAY TOO MANY PEOPLE ARE LEAVING UMBRELLAS UP AND OPEN, LEAVING THE BEACH FOR LUNCH OR FOR THE DAY AND WHEN WINDS COME UP OUT OF NOWHERE, THE UMBRELLAS CAN BE BLOWN OUT OF THE HOLE AND TRAVEL DOWN THE BEACH AND INJURE SOMEONE OR BREAK. YOU ARE REQUIRED TO LOWER THE UMBRELLA. IF AT TAKE-DOWN THE UMBRELLAS ARE LEFT IN THE 'UP' POSITION AND NO ONE IS ATTENDING THEM, WE WILL CONTACT YOU TO ADVISE YOU OF THIS, BUT THE 2ND TIME THIS OCCURS, YOUR SET-UP WILL END WITH NO REFUNDS OR CREDIT. PLEASE THINK ABOUT BEACH SAFETY SO WE CAN STILL PROVIDE THIS SERVICE TO YOU.  FOR 9 FOOT UMBRELLA CUSTOMERS, IF WINDS ARE HIGH, WE ARE VERY PROACTIVE IN REMOVING, BUT YOUR UMBRELLAS ARE ALSO ANCHORED AND DRILLED DEEPER.

 

Weather Alert Notifications:

In order to give you information that may delay or cancel your setup service for the day, you agree to allow Sandlappers Beach Supplies to text you as often as needed to keep you update.  Text Message and Data rates may apply to you.

9 FOOT & 11 foot umbrella policy

We will set up based on wind conditions of the morning.  In high winds we may not open the umbrellas and may leave them in the down position and hope that if the winds die down that we may be able to come back and raise them.  There will be no credits issued if we do not set or are unable to open.  Please understand, these umbrellas are just like pop-up tents on the beach and their ability to provide shade is awesome but they are NOT MADE FOR WIND RESISTANCE of beach winds.  Beyond 116 mph we will remove the umbrellas from the beach for safety.  Just consider yourself notified that Mother Nature will win each and every time and we will not try to fight it.

We do NOT refund whole or pro-rated due to items breaking, unless we cannot repair or replace the item.  We strive to exchange out items instead of making you wait for a repair but during prime rental weeks, repairing may be the only option available.  You MUST give us an opportunity to repair and or replace items.  You cannot just call up and say 'my bike tire is flat'and I need a replacement 'now'.

Your Responsibility of the Rental Merchandise:

Umbrellas:

If it's windy out, check wind speeds on Weatherbug, pulling the information from North Myrtle Beach.  That's the closest station to us and it's 18 miles away. PLEASE DO NOT SETUP YOUR UMBRELLA.  Umbrellas are made for shade, NOT high wind resistance, even with an anchor.  Please think of beach safety first.

*Daily set-up and Take Down Service

Some weeks such as July 4th week, your setup may be delayed or late up to an hour as many things configure into why.  Lots of competition for space on the beach.   The amount of traffic at accesses.  Customers stopping our guys on the beach requesting us to 'move them, etc.  Many variables.  So the 'up time of 9 a.m'. does not apply during these busy periods and there will be credit/refund given.  There is, nor has there ever been a guaranteed 'up' time.

All items are typically setup at least 10 feet behind the High-Tide line.  Why?  We are a south facing beach and when when winds come off the ocean, the tide is pushed higher up on the strand and we don't want our equipment washing away in the surf and you want your full days use of the items, so while it may not be ideal for you and you may have a good bit of beachfront from where we set it up, please remember, this is our rules as it's left unattended all day until pick up time.  If you want to be further closer to the beach then you should order 'drop-off' items to your home and you can set it up wherever you wish as then it's your responsibility.

WINDS.  Throughout the summer we encounter days where winds are just too high for umbrellas, period.  We will err on the side of caution and safety first when forecast are for high winds as we monitor winds on the beach, not through smart phone applications where the reporting station is 20 plus miles away and miles inland.  We have liability, you do not and there isn't an endless supply of umbrellas and we reserve the right to not setup umbrellas if we deem it a safety issue.  We also reserve the right to remove umbrellas early if winds do pick up to the point in which we deem it a safety issue due to our insurance carriers requirements.

Umbrella and Chair removal can and will occur without notification to you as when winds reach high speeds, we do not have time to call up to 40 different customers and spend time explaining what we are doing.  Please allow our staff to remove the items quickly and not delay them.  If you have questions or concerns the please address those with management.  Regardless of the time of day we remove umbrellas, if you wish to keep your chairs, you may do so, however you will have to take them home with you and bring back to the beach the next morning as we will not make a return trip to pick up the chairs.

Setup begins THE DAY AFTER CHECK IN AND NOT THE DAY OF.  During Checkout if you enter the wrong check-in date and it disrupts your service for the day, there will be no credits/refunds given as the fault lays with the customer and not the company.

THERE IS NO NEED TO CALL US TO TELL US WHAT ANOTHER COMPANY IS DOING.  WE GIVE YOU ALL THE 'WHAT IF'S' FOR YOU TO BE MADE AWARE BEFORE RENTING.  WE HAVE A COMPETITOR THAT HAS IT'S EMPLOYEES OUT DURING THUNDERSTORMS SETTING UP UMBRELLAS IN THE RAIN ALL SO THEY DON'T HAVE TO REFUND YOU.  THAT'S THEIR ULTERIOR MOTIVE.  WE WILL NOT RISK OUR EMPLOYEE'S WELFARE OVER AN UMBRELLA.

Sometimes weather may be bad during the morning hours, winds, rain, thunderstorms or even the forecasting of impending inclement weather and we will 'delay' setting up until the radar is 'clear'.  Depending on the time of the morning, we may elect NOT to setup as it takes 2 plus hours most mornings to setup everything and as an example, if it's 11 a.m. we will not setup.  Bear in mind we have dedicated staff to setup each morning and we cannot hold staff over for hours on end just 'waiting' and 'hoping' for weather to clear.

We try to make the best judgement call based on many weather models and sometimes the forecasters get it wrong, which in turns we will get it wrong.  Just because you see 'breaks' in weather that may last 30 minutes to 2 hours doesn't mean more inclimate weather isn't coming.  This is our job, to watch weather and make good business decisions and in renting setup service, you agree to abide by our decisions.

IF YOU DISAGREE WITH ANY OF OUR POLICIES, THEN DO NOT RENT FROM US.

Kayak Rules:

While kayaking is a wonderful and enjoyable experience, you are encouraged to use caution. Kayaking in the waterway is pleasurable probably more-so than the ocean as you have calmer waters. If you are inexperienced in kayaking, it is suggested you stay in calmer waters, i.e. the backwaters of the waterway, or canals. Riding ocean waves and such takes skill and it’s a learning experience with the probability of wipe-outs occurring riding waves in, and even when you learn how to do it properly, you will still have an unpleasant experience once in awhile. Just a rule to remember, ALWAYS have your life vest on, and in the waterway, steer into waves (wakes) created by boats. If you tip over, don’t panic. It sometimes happens. It is suggested you visit some websites with videos to get the ‘basics’ of proper kayaking as we too want you to have a fun and enjoyable experience but more importantly, a SAFE one.
