HIRE TERMS & CONDITIONS
All items hired by Vintage Style Hire Ltd ("VSH") are hired on the following conditions.
It is recommended that you take out your own insurance from the time of delivery to the time of collection.
The hirer assumes all responsibility once items are in their possession.
Installation, set up and styling is NOT included in our basic hire prices.
If you have booked VSH’s styling services, installation/de-rig will be included.
Please ensure you keep all packaging, especially boxes.
Unfortunately we can’t hire things again such as infuser jars and mason jars if the boxes are lost or damaged.
Unless agreed by VSH, all props and furniture are for indoor use only. Any items left outside are done so entirely at the hirer’s risk. If VSH has agreed that furniture can be used outside (weather permitting), please ensure they are not left outside overnight. If stored in a marquee, please ensure they are away from the sides to avoid water damage.
All our props are generally vintage items and will show signs of wear associated with age, with the exception of new items such as mason jars, glassware and t-lights.
Deliveries are to one location at ground floor loading by ONE man only.
Assistance is required for offloading. We can provide additional crew to unload at additional cost.
Deliveries and collections will be made between 9am-5pm Monday – Friday unless otherwise agreed.
An additional 50% is charged to collect at the weekend, Bank Holiday’s or Public Holidays.
Please provide a representative to meet the driver at delivery and collection to ensure the props are checked in and out.
All props and furniture must be moved to one location by the client for collection and assistance is required to load the props. Please ensure this will be available.
A non-refundable deposit of 40% is required to secure the hire items.
Our items are unique and one of a kind and therefore once you have booked them, we can’t offer them to another client. Cancellation of a confirmed booking will incur a percentage fee of the Invoice total.
Less than SIX months 50% of the balance
Less than TWO months 75% of the balance
Less than TWO weeks 100% of the balance
