We are able to deliver up and down the country, we have reliable vehicles and manpower. Please get in contact to discuss any delivery/collection costs and arrangements. All delivery quotes are for delivery to the GROUND FLOOR and ease of access to the venue, if there is an especially long carry i.e. up and down hills or up/down stairs there will be an additional labour charge. We can discuss this with you before you confirm your order.
The hire period is for 3 days. There could be some flexibility with the hire period, but this must be discussed and agreed prior to booking. We will always do our utmost to be as flexible as possible but sometimes the items will need to be returned due to them being reserved for the next event.
A 25% deposit on confirmation of your booking is required, this secures your items and date.
Full balance payment must be made and cleared our account 2 weeks prior to the DELIVERY date at the latest. An early payment is always appreciated. BACS details available upon request.
The hire period is for 3 days. Should you wish to hire for a longer period please discuss your requirements with us, we will try our best to accommodate you where possible, longer periods of hire could incur further costs.
Delivery and collection is available; details must be discussed prior to booking. Delivery and collection charges are based on delivery/collection from the GROUND FLOOR ONLY. Further carries would likely incur a further labour cost, please discuss this with us at the time of booking.
Times of deliveries/collections are approximate only. Linda’s Vintage Hire cannot be held responsible for delays outside of their control, we will do our utmost to keep any delays to an absolute minimum.
All goods should be checked against the inventory of your order and signed for by the client upon receipt. If deliveries are left at unattended premises this is at the clients risk, and all losses would have to be paid for.
Due to the age and fragile nature of some of the china supplied by Linda’s Vintage Hire it must be understood that some of the items are much more easily prone to damage than some commercial use catering crockery. Please ensure that extra care is taken when stacking and handling.
It is to be expected that some of the items due to their age/use would show some signs of ware i.e. gilt edges, silver plating or faded patterns, this all adds to the vintage charm.
Linda’s Vintage Hire will take care of all of the washing of all of the crockery to minimise the risk of breakage charges, this is included in the quoted prices.
Any goods supplied by Linda’s Vintage Hire remains our property at all times.
During the agreed hire period, usually 3 days, the client is responsible for the goods, this includes the safekeeping and protection of the goods in your care.
The client is responsible for any loss or damage to goods supplied by Linda’s Vintage Hire, any losses or breakages will be re-paid to Linda's Vintage Hire and charged at normal replacement costs.
We require a refundable breakage deposit for some of our items (china hire especially). This will be discussed prior to the hire agreement and should be paid by separate cheque made payable to Linda’s Vintage Hire. The cheque will be held and not cashed and will be returned to the hirer (or destroyed) on safe return of all hired items with no damage. Larger items or more valuable items hired may incur a deposit cheque of £100, again this is not cashed unless the items are not returned or are damaged, if returned as hired, in good condition the cheque is returned.
If cancellation notice is given more than 6 months prior to the event date, half of the booking deposit will be refunded.
If notice of cancellation is less than 6 months prior to the event date, the full booking deposit will be retained by Linda’s Vintage Hire.
A deposit of 25% of the total hire fee is due on confirmation of your booking, (this confirms your items are reserved for your date) payable by bank transfer, BACS.
The balance payment is due to be cleared 2 weeks prior to the delivery date of your event.
All quotations given are due to the items availability at the time, if in the meantime your date/items are reserved by receiving a deposit payment from another customer then I am afraid that the items will no longer be available for hire. Many of our items are booked well in advance.
