Goods are to be booked on a next day courier service and notice given to The Company of the date of courier collection and return. See Paragraph 3 Hire Period for the available collection and return times.

    1. Couriered returns from The Client must reach the Company by the 5th day of hire. In the event of delays in transit, proof of dispatch will be required in order to levy any charges for late return of goods. The Client understands that hired goods are sent by courier at their own risk, therefore any loss or damages to the hired goods caused in transit are charged at the full retail value. All items received back via an independent courier will be checked whilst in the presence of the courier driver. Any breakages will be noted as such at that time on the manifest and charged accordingly. All disputes and/or claims regarding loss or damage of hire goods in transit remain between the Client and the Courier Company used by the Client.

  7. Liability of goods: The Client is solely responsible for the Hired Goods not the reception / event venue / hotel / florist or any other third party to whom The Client has entrusted the Hire Goods. The Client alone shall be responsible for ensuring the Hired Goods are kept in good order from the time of dispatch from The Company until back into the possession of the Company. Therefore, if the Client intends to leave Hired Goods anywhere other than in The Client’s possession before or after the event, an agreement of a good provision of storage must be made and organised directly with the hotel or third party by The Client and does so at their own risk. 

    1. If The Client intends to leave directly after the event finishes e.g. Honeymoon, The Client must organise the take down, re-packaging and return of all hired goods prior to the event, nominating a third party to act on their behalf. The contact names, addresses and telephone numbers of the nominated party should be made known to The Company so that the goods can be located after the event. The Client will still be fully responsible for the hired goods even when dealt with by a third party. 

  8. Wear & Tear: The Client understands that The Company’s items are in good working order but are not in “as new” condition. The Client and/or their nominated third party will be asked to sign the terms and conditions before leaving The Company’s property. Once the hired items have left The Company’s premises, The Company deems the hire period to have begun and the hire items satisfactory and fit for purpose. The Company will NOT entertain complaints made after the items have been returned. 

  9. Collections: Collections must be inspected at the Company’s premises; hired goods must be checked against the booking confirmation before taking receipt. The hire goods stated on the booking confirmation will be prepared, cleaned and checked by The Company, but it is the responsibility for the Client too keep the items on the order as any shortages, breakages or incorrect items cannot be clarified or rectified after the Client has left the premises with the goods. The Company will be liable after this time and no refunds will be given if the notification time is not adhered to. 

  10. Packaging: All goods are packaged accordingly for safe transportation. Therefore all goods must be re-packaged in THE ORIGINAL PACKAGING provided ready for collection / return. A charge will be made for non-return or damage of original packaging usually around £20-£30 per replacement package. This charge covers the cost of the replacement to The Company.

  11. Non Returns / Damaged Goods: The Client will pay for any non-returns, damaged goods or breakages howsoever caused at FULL RETAIL VALUE. Details of the replacement retail value of Hired Goods will be given on request at the time of booking for the Client’s own information. The Company will take details of the Client’s credit or debit card to cover any costs incurred due to damage or non-returns. Hired goods will be checked upon return and a charge will be made from the given credit or debit card the same day for any non-returns or damages of hired goods found at that time. 

  12. Deliveries: Deliveries and collections by courier can only be made to a residential address provided by the Client. Deliveries will not be collected or sent directly from the venue as all goods require to be checked upon receipt. Deliveries must be inspected upon receipt. Any shortages, breakages or incorrect items must be notified to The Company within six hours (same day) of receipt. This enable The Company to put things right in good time. No claims for breakages, shortages, or incorrect items can be entertained beyond this time period. The Company will not be liable after this time and no refunds will be given if the notification period is not adhered to.

  13. Liability of The Company: The Company shall not be responsible for injury or damage to persons or property howsoever sustained arising from any Hired Goods from The Company.
