Insurance, Repair, and Replacement Policy
Renter assumes full responsibility for lost or damaged goods.
Repair fees are charged when we must go beyond usual cleaning and maintenance. Such charges are assessed on a case-by-case basis. Damaged items must be returned.
In cases where items are damaged beyond repair, total replacement fee is set at six times the rental cost. Items damaged beyond repair must also be returned. Replacement fee is separate from rental fee
For clients who use a third party messenger service to transport items, we recommend that you insure items at no less than six times the total rental cost.
***The rental of any item from Surface Studio constitutes acceptance of our policies and agreement to indemnify and hold harmless Surface Studio Enterprises NYC, Inc., its agents and employees against any claims of any sort resulting from any activity in connection with the items being rented.***
Pick Up, Transportation, and Messenger Services
***Stone, marble, cement, tile and any surfaces weighing 65 pounds or more MUST be handled by a two-person courier team***
Surfaces will not be released to bike messengers.
If you need a recommendation for a courier service, please be in touch.
We cannot provide curbside service for pickup or returns.
Please take note: We do not do custom work, we do not sell our inventory, and we do not ship out of town.
Why? Because we make everything here in our West 30th St Studio - nothing is outsourced, so replacing or duplcating is not a simple matter. Crating and shipping is expensive, and once given a quote most clients balk at that expense. We'd rather spend our time maintaining and expanding our inventory!
