Following each Period, each Lease shall renew automatically for additional Periods until you give Conexwest at least 5 working days notice to terminate a Lease. You shall pay in advance the deposit indicated to secure your performance of a Lease. The deposit will be returned if you request in writing within 30 days of Unit's return in undamaged condition or revert to Conexwest for its own account if not so requested. Conexwest may apply the deposit for damage and any other Charges and you will replace such deposit amounts if Units are still on rent. Any payments made by you to Conexwest above Charges owed each Period shall revert to Conexwest for its own account if not claimed by Customer in writing within 30 days of such payment.

You may either pickup/return Units (upon meeting Conexwest insurance/indemnification requirements) or pay for Conexwest delivery/return. Allow 30-day window for pick-up. You may store Units at your delivery location or pay Conexwest to store Units at a Conexwest facility and agree Units may be stored by Conexwest at an alternative location in Conexwest’s sole discretion. By using Units you or your agent accept the Units as free of defects, in good repair and working condition. You agree to inspect Units prior to use and to notify Conexwest in writing of any defect. Regardless of being in transit, at your location or a Conexwest facility, you shall be solely responsible for all loss, theft and damages (except ordinary wear and tear) to Units, Unit contents ("Contents") and your premises or other property, for any cause whatsoever, including (without limitation) damages caused by theft, vandalism, forces of nature, leaking of any Unit, condensation, humidity, or damages relating to the delivery or removal of a Unit.

You shall pay Conexwest all Charges to clean, paint, repair, remove locks, make immediately ready for re-lease any Unit and to remove, store, retain or dispose of Contents. You shall keep Units freely accessible at all times to inspection and removal by Conexwest.

Conexwest will attempt to schedule delivery/removal of the Unit as requested by you but rental Charges will continue until delivery/removal of the Unit is completed.

You authorize Conexwest to attempt to place Units pursuant to your instructions on a driveway or other paved surface accessible from a street, over your lawn or other non-paved area and you represent that any placement area will have adequate size, clearance and structural integrity to sustain the weight and size of the Unit(s), delivery truck and any other related equipment.
You shall maintain the Unit in good condition. You are responsible to weekly inspect the Unit’s interior and exterior to assure it is in good working condition. You shall keep each Unit free from all liens and grant Conexwest a contractual lien and security interest (as of the date any Charges are unpaid and due) on all Contents and proceeds thereof to secure payment of Charges.

Individual items shall be limited to $.60 per pound up to the Content maximum value. This maximum value is significant consideration in the establishment of rental price.
Neither you nor your insurer shall have any claim (direct or by way of subrogation) against Conexwest or Conexwest Related Parties for any loss or damage to any property resulting from any casualty. INSURANCE FOR UNIT CONTENTS IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY--Conexwest DOES NOT PROVIDE ANY INSURANCE. You will provide prior to delivery or upon request a Certificate of Insurance naming Conexwest as loss payee and additional insured with coverage equal to the Unit replacement cost. The policy shall be acceptable to Conexwest in its discretion and provide for 30 days notice to Conexwest prior to cancellation or modification.
Conexwest may terminate this Lease at any time without notice for any reason whatsoever. You release any claim that Conexwest has duties of a bailee or under "warehouseman" laws. Each of the following constitute an "Event of Default:" (a) you fail to perform any term of any Lease, (b) you have bankruptcy, reorganization or insolvency proceedings threatened or instituted, or (c) if Conexwest has a reasonable belief of an anticipatory default by you. upon an Event of Default Conexwest may, without legal process or notice, terminate a Lease, enter any premises where a Unit is located, repossess Units, remove any locks on your property or Units, remove Contents without regard to their protection or pursue any other remedy available. You irrevocably grant Conexwest unrestricted access to your property and permission to enter day or night, remove locks, disconnect attached utilities and repossess Units. If a Unit is repossessed, Conexwest is approved in advance to remove Contents or exercise its lien and hold Contents and you shall have no claim against Conexwest for damaged Contents. If you do not pay all Charges due and remove all Contents from Conexwest premises, you grant Conexwest permission to dispose of/sell Contents in accordance with applicable state law and apply net proceeds to unpaid Charges. Customer releases and agrees to indemnify Conexwest and Conexwest Related Parties from any claims for trespass, conversion or damages of any nature arising from repossession. You agree to pay, as liquidated damages, Conexwest's collection/repossession/disposal fees, attorney's fees and any other cost incurred by reason of any Event of Default or the exercise of Conexwest's remedies. Repossession of a Unit shall not relieve you of your obligation to pay Charges owed hereunder. No remedy referred to is exclusive, and each shall be in addition to any remedy referred to herein or otherwise available to Conexwest. If Conexwest seeks to recover or repossess Units by means of "writ of replevin" or similar method, you waive any security or bond posting requirement prior to such process. Acceptance of partial payment shall not constitute a waiver of Conexwest's right to full payment. Any endorsements appearing on your checks shall not affect Charges owed. You shall not transfer or hypothecate the Unit, assign your duties hereunder or sublease the Unit. Conexwest may assign, pledge or transfer this Lease without your consent. Except as provided in Section 1, a Lease may only be amended in writing executed by the parties, shall be governed by the state laws where this Lease was executed by Conexwest ("Jurisdiction") and contains the entire understanding of the parties and supersedes the terms of any purchase order or similar document from you or any other agreement among the parties. Any suit regarding this Agreement shall be brought in the Jurisdiction provided that Conexwest may bring suit against you in any county where the Unit or Customer is located. If any term hereof is unenforceable, such invalidity shall not affect the enforceability of the Lease or any other provision. This Lease may be executed in multiple counterparts including by fax or other electronic transmission, each of which shall be regarded as an original and constitute one instrument. Your indemnity obligations shall survive termination of a Lease. You agree that Conexwest's total aggregate liability under this Lease shall not exceed $5,000.
