Rustic Wedding Box Terms & Conditions - Terms of Hire
Please read our terms and conditions below. By paying a deposit for services you are legally agreeing to our terms & conditions.
All props, garden games, equipment and decor remains the property of Rustic Wedding Box
During the period of hire, The Hirer shall be solely responsible for the hired goods and insuring the goods. The contract for the hire of goods is between Rustic Wedding Box and the Hirer, not the venue unless goods are being hired directly by the venue. It is the Hirer’s responsibility to ensure that the venue is clearly instructed so that the terms and conditions are met. Rustic Wedding Box will charge the Hirer for any costs due to terms and conditions being broken. It is then the responsibility of the Hirer to reclaim any of these costs from the venue if the venue was at fault. It is therefore the hirers responsibility to liaise with the venue with regards to access & collection times.
Rustic Wedding Box will set up and collect the Garden Games. The Hirer is responsible for letting Rustic Wedding Box know the set up location. If one is not given, an appropriate location will be chosen on your behalf. Rustic Wedding Box reserves the right to change/replace games from the time of booking to the time of hire. Where bookings are made 1+ year in advance, our packages may change in appearance of content. The Hirer will be entitled to the equivalent hire (i.e. number and type of games, along with decor) but the exact product may be different due to innovation, replacement or other.
Rustic Wedding Box shall not be responsible for injury or damage to persons or property howsoever sustained arising from our goods under hire.
Delivery charges are applicable for all decor hire and will quoted following submission of a decor enquiry relative to the location of your venue or delivery address. Where a van is required, our standard delivery charge is £15 for each journey required, therefore delivery + collection would be a minimum of £30. Mileage is charged in addition to this at £1.00 per mile to account for our drivers return trip and is applicable for both the delivery journey and the collection journey. Where a van is not required, we would just charge mileage costs.
Delivery charges are subject to change if the Hirer changes their order and quantities of hire products which could cause alternative delivery vehicles to be required.
DELIVERY & COLLECTION
A delivery and collection date and time will be agreed with Rustic Wedding Box and the Hirer. The Hirer must specify where the items are to be delivered, and who these should be handed over to for safekeeping, if the Hirer is not requiring Rustic Wedding Box to set up and style the decor/props.
All items should be gathered up and packed away in one location for collection by Rustic Wedding Box. If items are not gathered up by the Hirer ready for collection at the agreed time, charges may be taken from the security deposit to account for the time spent gathering and packing away any equipment
