General Conditions

  • 16. Purpose of site: Spacer makes available a platform or marketplace with related technology for Renters and Hosts to list, quote and arrange for bookings of storage, parking or other available space (“Contract”). The Company is not a rental agent or property broker. Spacer acts as an intermediary for members to transact and is not considered a party to any Contract between the Host and the Renter.
  • 17. We reserve the right to close your account or to remove or disable access to any Listing for any reason, including Listings that Spacer, in its sole discretion, considers to be objectionable for any reason, in violation of these Terms.
  • 18. The laws of the State of Victoria, Australia apply to these Terms and Conditions and the parties submit exclusively to the courts of that jurisdiction. Obligations of all Users

Obligations of all Users

  • 19. Registration with the Website requires the User to either log in via Facebook or supply your name, and email address and a password. Once registered your email address and password constitute the “Registration Details” of your User account.
  • 20. When you create a user account, we may require you to verify your identity. You warrant that all identity documents you provide are complete, current and accurate. You undertake to notify us of any changes to these identity documents within 7 days (for example, changing your name or contact address).
  • 21. Each Listing by a Host is an offer to enter a legally binding Contract with the Renter. If the Renter indicates through the website that the proposed terms of the Listing are accepted, the Host will receive by email the booking request, to which they must respond within 48 hours. In the absence of response, the request is considered rejected. If they accept the reservation, the Contract is confirmed and the Fee is taken from the Renter. Specific Obligations of Hosts
  • 22. To create a Listing, the Host must describe the Space, along with any conditions of storage they wish to apply, on the listing page of the Website. Such description may include text, graphics, pictures and other relevant content and should include details like size, location, security, whether or not a deposit is required for access cards/keys, and access offered. The Host will also disclose to the Company the price he wishes to charge for storage (the “Spacer Rent”). All descriptions and information must be accurate, complete, up-to-date and truthful to the best of your knowledge and belief. In the event that the Space becomes unavailable for any reason, you agree to remove or suspend the Listing as soon as reasonably practicable.
  • 23. You acknowledge and agree that you are responsible for any and all Listings you post. Accordingly, you represent and warrant that any Listing you post and the booking of, or Renter's use of, a Space in a Listing you post (i) will not breach any agreements you have entered into with any third parties and (ii) will (a) be in compliance with all applicable laws, tax requirements, and rules and regulations that may apply to any Space included in a Listing you post, including, but not limited to, zoning laws and laws governing rentals of residential and other properties and (b) not conflict with the rights of third parties.
  • 24. The Host can provide 2 types of access for any Listing – a) Full Private Access, thus giving permanent access to the Renter and b) Partial Access, with access to Listing provided upon giving notice to and being chaperoned by the Host.
  • 25. Where Full Private Access is provided, the Renter is responsible for all damage to the storage space that would be caused by the objects stored or by any negligent act or omission of the Renter and agrees to pay reasonable compensation in the unlikely event of damage to the Space caused. Reasonable compensation will normally mean paying for reasonable repairs, or replacement where the Space or part thereof is damaged beyond repair.
  • 26. Where Partial Access is provided the Host is responsible for the restitution of goods stored and inventoried in the state they were in at the time of storage. The Host has the obligation to inform without delay the Renter for any loss, damage or theft he would have found on the deposited assets. The Host in this case is responsible for the restitution of the deposited property in the condition they were at the day of delivery.
  • 27. Hosts agree to never insist, ask, or insinuate to a Renter that he or she pay any or all of the Space Fees directly to Host with a check, cash, or any payment method other than by payment through Spacer.
  • 28. In the event a Renter fails to make full payment to Spacer required under this agreement, the Host agrees to:
    • a. Assign their rights as bailee to Spacer;
    • b. Assist Spacer to the best of their ability by complying with any and all reasonable requests (such as, but not limited to: denying the Renter access to the property and their storage, taking images and an accurate inventory of the items in storage, allowing third party access to view the items in storage, and providing any reasonable information as requested by Spacer). Should the Host fail to comply with any reasonable request, this may (at the sole discretion of Spacer) be deemed sufficient to cancel the agreement and immediately cease all payments to the Host. Specific Obligations of Renters
  • 29. By entering into a Contract with a Host you warrant and represent that you will only use the space for the storage of personal property, you are not seeking storage of Prohibited Goods and will not use the Space for any unlawful purpose, and you will not do anything that will interfere with the Host’s reasonable enjoyment of the rest of the premises.
  • 30. The Renter undertakes to pay the Fee promptly, fully and in good faith and using the online Payment Manager upon confirmation of the Contract with the Host.
  • 31. Payment to Spacer of less than the amount owed does not affect your obligation to pay the balance. Acceptance of this part-payment is not a waiver of any rights Spacer has under this agreement.

  • 33. The Renter will comply with the access and security arrangements in the Contract or as otherwise agreed, and keep safe any keys or other items used to access the Space.
