The hire of the Vehicle starts on the Commencement Date and shall continue for the Rental Period unless terminated earlier in accordance with these Conditions.

3.1 On or before the Commencement Date, the Hirer shall pay to MCR the Initial Rental Payment and any Deposit. The Hirer shall pay to MCR the Rental Payments specified in accordance with the Hire Agreement. All payments shall be made by the Hirer by direct bank transfer to MCR’s nominated bank account. Time for payment shall be of the essence of this agreement.
3.2 The Rental Payments are exclusive of VAT and any other applicable taxes, duties, withholdings or similar charges which shall be payable by the Hirer at the rate and in the manner from time to time prescribed by law.
3.3 All payments to be made by the Hirer shall be made without withholding or set-off.

3.4 If the Hirer fails to pay any Rental Payments or any other sums payable by the due date for payment then, without limiting MCR's rights, the Hirer shall pay interest on such sums for the period from and including the due date of payment up to the actual date of payment, whether before or after judgment. The interest shall be paid at the rate of 5% per cent per annum above the base lending rate from time to time of The Bank of England.

3.7 The amount of any increase in the operating costs of MCR due to inflation shall be reflected in the amount of the Rentals payable to MCR by the Hirer, which Rentals shall be increased accordingly. Each Hire Agreement shall be reviewed annually, with the revised Rentals taking effect on the anniversary of the commencement of the Hire Agreement. Such increase in the amount of the Rentals shall be based on the movement of RPI for category CZEA (Maintenance of Motor Vehicles “Index”) provided by the Office for National Statistics (Government Department). The revised Rentals shall be calculated by reference to the most recent published RPI data at the time of the Hire Agreement review. The percentage increase (if any) reflected in the Index movement shall be modified by a Rental inflation of 50% of the rental monthly charge unless otherwise specified in the schedule to the Hire Agreement. MCR will write to the Hirer to confirm the revised Rentals at the start of the 11th month following the commencement of the Hire Agreement, and annually thereafter. In the event that RPI for category CZEA should fall to below 0% at any point during the term of the Hire Agreement, the Rentals shall not be reduced between reviews, or at an annual review.
3.8 The Hirer shall be obliged to make Rental Payments for any additional (beyond the specified Rental Period) days in which the Vehicle has not been delivered up to MCR in accordance with condition 6.1(y) and/or where it has been used in the period before collection by MCR.

The Felix Van
An estimated 931 million tonnes of food is wasted every single year, equalling the weight of 23 million fully-loaded 40-tonne trucks, enough to circle the Earth 7 times, according to a new report published by the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP, 2021).
This staggering amount is shocking when millions of people in the UK regularly experience hunger. However, thanks to organisations such as The Felix Project, there is hope for change. This year we have partnered with The Felix Project is London's largest food redistribution charity.
