HIRE Frequently asked questions

Do you have a minimum hire order?
Yes, we have a minimum hire order threshold of $500 excluding delivery and bond fees.

What does the bond cover?
The bond fee starts from $100 and is refunded upon the safe and prompt return of our products. Please note your bond fee will not be refunded if they are returned beyond the terms of our arrange rental period (directly affecting customers who have hired them after your event), and/or our items are missing or damaged beyond mere wear and tear. In this case you may also be charged an additional replacement fee.

What is your hire delivery fee?
Our hire delivery fees start from $50, and are charged in multiples of $50, based on the number, weight and dimensions of the hire items/s, the time and date of delivery and pickup, access requirements as well as the need for assembly.

Please see our blog post on why event hire delivery fees are not flat fees.

Can you "hold" a hire item for us?
No, Unfortunately no hire items are "held" and are available on a first-in-best dressed basis. Hire items are only booked and locked in for your event once they are fully paid for.

What if we need the hire item for longer?
You can hire the item for a longer period if it is available and you may be charged a multiple hire period.

For example, an item hired typically for one day could be charged out at 2-7 times that hire period for a week during peak event season.

Can we collect hire items from you in Brighton, Victoria?
Yes. There are a number of rented items you can collect from us by arrangement from our premises in Brighton, Vic which are categorised as Brighton, VIC hire pickup

Other items must either be delivered by us or our supplier.

Do you sell ex-rental decor items?
We can arrange to sell certain items by arrangement. Should the item not be available for sale we can usually source you the same item for purchase.

What is your hire cancellation time frame?
You must give 14 full calendar days' notice prior to your event date if you wish to cancel your hire order to give other customers the opportunity to hire the items and to receive a full refund of your hire payment.

You will forfeit your full hire payment if you do not give at least 14 full calendar days notice to cancel your order.
