Similarly, in the event of a second Customer absence during a second attempt by the MOVE & RENT teams, the delivery will be considered to have been made and the contract will continue to be effective. Any additional delivery(ies) will be invoiced to the Customer at the current rates.
11.1.3 The Customer must ensure the ability to deliver and install the Rented Product(s). Consequently, he\she must ensure access to the place of delivery (dimensions of doors, stairways etc). It is the Customer's responsibility to provide the requisite information when ordering regarding compatibility between Product dimensions, location accessibility as well as access features (lift, access code, etc.). The Customer is solely responsible for a failure to deliver and\or install, due to a lack of this provision of the foregoing information at the time of the rental agreement. In the event of inability\lack of feasibility noted at the time of delivery, the Customer will then assume all of the consequences. In this case, the Customer will be considered as absent, the rescheduling of a new delivery will be invoiced to the Customer at the Customer's entire expense and he\she will also bear all additional costs incurred by arrangements made for the delivery and installation of the Products.
Additionally, if delivery is impossible, MOVE & RENT will have the right to terminate the rental contract, but will retain a deduction from the security deposit for the costs incurred.

11.1.5 In accordance with Article L216-2 of the Consumer Code, in the event of failure by MOVE & RENT to fulfil its obligation to execute the contract within the time limit provided for above, other than in the event of force majeure, the Customer may terminate his\her contract by registered letter with acknowledgement of receipt or in writing via another durable medium if, after having instructed MOVE & RENT, in the same way to install the Product(s) within a reasonable additional period of time, the Product(s) has\have not been installed within that period of time.
The contract is considered terminated upon receipt by MOVE & RENT of the letter or other written notice of such termination, unless MOVE & RENT has since satisfactorily fulfilled its contractual obligations.
The Customer may immediately terminate his\her contract when MOVE & RENT refuses to deliver the rented Product(s) or when it fails to fulfil its obligations within the prescribed period and this period constitutes an essential condition for the Customer to agree to the rental contract. This essential condition results from the circumstances surrounding the conclusion of the contract or from an express request from the Customer before the rental contract agreement.
In these cases, MOVE & RENT shall reimburse the Client for all sums paid, at the latest within fourteen (14) days following the date on which the order was cancelled.
However, in the event of a delay in delivery of more than seven (7) working days in relation to the delivery date agreed between the Parties, and directly and exclusively attributable to MOVE & RENT, MOVE & RENT may make available to the Customer, if the latter so wishes and explicitly requests, an additional product of a category equivalent to that of the rented Product, subject to the terms and conditions of the rental contract agreed. In this case, the Customer undertakes to make the additional product in good working order available for return to MOVE & RENT on the day of actual delivery of the Product initially rented. If MOVE & RENT does not take back the additional product, because the Customer is not available, the days following the actual delivery of the rented Product will be invoiced in addition to the Customer under the price conditions of the rental contract. If the Customer does not wish to accept the equivalent Product, MOVE AND RENT will deduct an amount from the rental fee corresponding to the missing Product rental fee until it is delivered to the Customer.
