These terms and conditions, as may be amended from time to time, apply to all our services directly or indirectly (through distributors) made available online, through any mobile device, by email or by telephone. By accessing, browsing and using our website or any of our applications through whatever platform (hereafter collectively referred to as the "website") and/or by completing a reservation, you acknowledge and agree to have read, understood and agreed to the terms and conditions set out below (including the privacy statement).
Below are the standard provisions set forth by GameTruck. Please contact your local operator for terms specific to your region.
At the time of booking, Customer authorizes GameTruck to charge a non-refundable deposit in the amount of 50% the quoted price for reservation of the event. Events booked online are for private small events (20 participants or less). These pricing packages are not valid for larger group or public events. If you are interested in discussing options for a large event please contact us directly so we can assure that we are able provide you and your guests with an exceptional GameTruck experience.
Customer authorizes GameTruck to charge the remaining invoice balance beginning 48 hours prior to the event, although in many instances final payment is collected at the conclusion of your event.
Because people often book parties well in advance, customer recognizes that times reserved are in short supply. Therefore should Customer request a cancellation within 21 days of the event, or Customer is a no show for the event, the full remaining balance of the invoice will be due.
GameTruck will make every reasonable effort to deliver party merchandise before the day of the event. For party packages booked less than 8 calendar days before the event, Customer understands items may arrive after the event. All merchandise sales are final. No returns or exchanges are offered.
GameTruck will make every reasonable attempt to deliver an event. Forecast of bad weather is not an exception to the cancellation policy. However, if an event is affected by unsafe weather (tornado warnings, high winds, heavy snow, unsafe roads, or flooding), GameTruck reserves the right to reschedule your event. No refund will be issued for this reschedule.
For Video Game Parties, prior to arrival please allocate 60 feet (approximately 7 parking spaces) for the game trailer to park that is free of hazards and foot traffic. To avoid damage to customer and GameTruck property, we reserve the right to refuse to pull a game trailer onto customer property. Delays caused by clearing space for the truck and trailer will not prevent us from leaving at the scheduled time.
A permit is only required if we will need to park in a "No Parking" zone. GameTruck trailers are no wider than any contractor or landscaper vehicle and in most cases parking outside the home at the curb is not an issue. If a parking permit is required it will be the responsibility of Customer to arrange for one.
