If you desire to lease any Furniture Items from us you will be required to sign a furniture lease agreement (“Lease Agreement”) as further described in these Terms. You must carefully review, understand and agree to the terms and conditions of your Lease Agreement prior to signing your Lease Agreement. Your Lease Agreement may be provided to you in electronic format and we may request your signature indicating your agreement to the terms and conditions of your Lease Agreement be provided via electronic means.
3. SELECTION OF FURNITURE, CREDIT CHECKS, ORDERS, PAYMENT
3.1 Selection of Furniture Items. If you desire to lease or purchase any Furniture Items or utilize any Services, you may be required to (a) provide certain information about yourself, including personal information such as your name, address and email address, and (b) provide payment information to our third-party payment processor for the purpose of future processing of any payments to us that you authorize.
3.2 Credit Checks. In addition, if you desire to lease any Furniture Items, you may be required to (a) submit to a soft credit check and share certain personal information with third parties for such purpose, and/or (b) specify your income and provide documentation to verify the same, and/or (c) as applicable, provide financial documentation of your entity for the purpose of credit approval. If the Company, in its sole discretion, determines that the results of the soft credit check do not meet its requirements, you will be denied the ability to move forward with leasing any Furniture Items and any payment method you may have provided will not be charged. If the Company, in its sole discretion, determines the results of the credit review meet its requirements and otherwise agrees to lease Furniture Items to you, you will be asked to make a payment towards your selected Furniture Items and, if applicable, membership fees and/or a refundable security deposit. However, any amounts paid constitute a hold for the selected Furniture Items, and if you do not sign your Lease Agreement within the time frame required by the Company, the Company will return to you any funds you have paid to the Company towards those held Furniture Items. If you sign your Lease Agreement, then those funds will be applied to your first payment due at signing of your Agreement and, unless there are changes made to your Furniture Items before signing your Lease Agreement, you will not owe the Company any further payments when you sign your Lease Agreement.
3.3 Order Confirmation; Upon receiving your payment, we will email you an order confirmation describing the Furniture Items or other Services you selected. An order confirmation, however, does not constitute our acceptance of your order and does not represent our offer to serve you. We are simply confirming that we received your order. Following checkout (including, if you have selected to lease such Furniture Items, during the period between checkout of your selected Furniture Items on the Website and signing of your Lease Agreement) all or some of your selected Furniture Items may no longer be available. Furthermore, any delivery dates requested are not guaranteed. If you have elected to lease Furniture Items, one of our team members will contact you a few days after your receipt of the order confirmation to discuss the availability of your selected Furniture Items, and based on that discussion, we will send you a Lease Agreement for signature that specifies the Furniture Items covered by that Lease Agreement, additional amounts due by you at signing (if any) and during the term of the Lease Agreement, among other important matters. In the event that any changes are made to the Furniture Items as a result of your discussions with our team members, then we will refund you the overpayment. We will bill you for any underpayment of your first monthly payment if changes are made that result in such an amount being due upon signing of your Lease Agreement. In the event you fail to sign the Lease Agreement by the due date, any agreed upon delivery dates between you and your team members will be lost. If you have elected to purchase Furniture Items, if any such Furniture Items are not available following such purchase, someone from our team will contact you to discuss alternative options, including but not limited to substituting such Furniture Items for other Furniture Items (which may result in an additional charge to you if such Furniture Items are more expensive than those which you originally elected to purchase) or a cancellation of the purchase of such Furniture Items with a full refund to you.
3.4 Payment. You agree to pay us all applicable fees and taxes in Canadian Dollars. Payment can be made by credit card, debit card or other means that we may make available. You agree that (a) we may store your payment method (e.g. credit card), and (b) we may calculate taxes payable by you based on the delivery address that you provide us at the time of checkout, and you authorize us to charge your payment method for all applicable fees, including but not limited to amounts to purchase or rental fees for Furniture Items, membership fees (if any), delivery and installation fees, cancellation/restocking fees, rescheduling fees, other fees as described in your Lease Agreement (if applicable) and applicable taxes. You represent and warrant that you have the legal right to use the payment method you provide to us or our payment processor.

We may offer certain promotional codes, referral codes, discount codes, coupon codes or similar offers (“Promotional Codes”) that may be redeemed for discounts on Furniture Items, subject to any terms and conditions that the Company establishes.

While we attempt to be as accurate as we can in our descriptions for the Furniture Items, we do not warrant that descriptions of Furniture Items are accurate, complete, reliable, current, or error-free. The inclusion of any Furniture Items for rental through the Services at a particular time does not imply or warrant that such Furniture Items will be available at any other time. We reserve the right to discontinue, modify or limit the available quantity of, any Furniture Items or other Services. We reserve the right to change prices for Furniture Items displayed on the Services at any time, and to correct pricing errors that may inadvertently occur (and to cancel any orders in our sole discretion that were purchased with pricing errors). All such changes shall be effective immediately upon posting of such new Furniture Items prices to the Services and/or upon making the customer aware of the pricing error.
