Before getting mat at your uniform rental company and cancelling your uniform rental contract, you should examine the contract and make sure that you have complied with all of the terms of the agreement as well as make sure that the uniform is not fulfilling the terms of their agreement. How do you do this? After confirming you are in compliance, follow the four elements of cancelling a uniform rental contract listed below.
The Four Elements of Cancelling Your Uniform Rental Contract
If you meet all of those elements then you might have reason to terminate the agreement due to the breach of contract by the uniform rental company in failing to fulfill their legal obligations of the contract.
However it is not that simple, and you should consult with a lawyer before terminating the contract. In any uniform rental agreement, there will always be a liquidated damages clause which entitles the uniform rental company to 40-50% of the remaining value on the contract. If you cancel the contract and a uniform rental arbitration case is brought against you, there is a chance you could lose if the arbiter does not decide in your favor.
Four Crucial Action Items That Support The Four Elements Previously Mentioned
Even after meeting the four elements of cancelling a uniform rental contract and supporting it with the compiling of sufficient documentation, you will still want to think twice about going to an arbitration hearing. I have seen seemingly invincible cases go down the drain for some unforeseen event or witness. See if there is some way you can come to an amicable agreement. Usually in the end the lawyers are the only ones that come out winning in the end.
The path to winning against a uniform rental company is a long and hard road which will take time, money and resources. Yes, you have the right to cancel, but for those who don’t take the steps that I’ve outlined above, your chances of winning are slim to none.
