SECTION 3: SELLING TO FRESHRENTS 

Section 3.1: Product ownership and transfer

You are able to sell your pre-used products to FreshRents, thereby becoming a ‘contributor’.  The products you sell need to abide by a set of rules: (a) must comply with all applicable laws, statutes, ordinances, including without limitation all import and export laws, (b) may not infringe on third party intellectual property rights (including copyrights, trademarks, patents, trade secrets or other proprietary rights), and (c) shall not be counterfeit, stolen, or fraudulent. You represent and warrant that the products are free of any liens or encumbrances.

Section 3.2: Pricing quote

Once you submit details and photographs of the product(s) you would like to sell, FreshRents will provide you with a quote. All quotes will be based on FreshRent’s own determination of the product value in reliance on the accuracy of the information you supply us. FreshRents may also decline to purchase based on our discretion and inventory requirements. Upon receiving a quote, you have the option of accepting or rejecting that offer. Lack of response also constitutes as a rejection of the offer. Acceptance indicates you are willing to provide your product(s) to FreshRents at the quoted price. If after rejecting the offer you change your mind and want to accept the offer, you will need to open another transaction with us at which point, assuming the product is still eligible for purchase, the new offer may be different as product prices are subject to change. You must have all right, title, and interest in any and all products you seek and sell to FreshRents.

All quotes provided by FreshRents upon submission are non-binding and indicative only. FreshRents reserves the right, at its sole discretion and at any point in time, to cancel any Offer. Upon pick-up, FreshRents will also conduct a secondary product inspection and reserves the right to revoke the original offer or provide a revised quote for the products if they are not as described or photographed in your submission. In the event FreshRents recalculates the quote, you shall have the option of accepting or rejecting the new offer. If you accept the new offer, you will be paid in normal course and in accordance with these service terms. Once FreshRents has purchased the item, we cannot guarantee that we will be able to honour any request for return of the products.
