On Marquee and/or Weddings, a 10% deposit or $300.00 is required at the time of booking whichever the greater. The balance is payable in full no later than 7 days prior to your function date. If you place a booking within 10days of the function date payment is required in full at the time of booking. Payments can be made by cash, cheque, direct bank deposit, credit card (attracts a 1.5% surcharge) or EFT (50c surcharge). Please note: large orders have a refundable bond attached.

7. Do I lose my deposit if I cancel my hire?

To cancel a confirmed booking prior to your event, a notice in writing must be received at our office, whether by email or in person (or over the phone). The cancellation takes effect from the date we receive your advice. Cancellation charges will be calculated as set out below and a refund cheque (where applicable) will be issued within five working days of the cancellation.

  1. If cancellation is made more than ten (10) days prior to delivery (or function if picking up), 100% of payments made will be refunded, except your original 10% deposit which will cover admin fees. In the case of Pavilion Marquee weddings a $300 cancel fee will be kept & all other monies payed will be refunded.
  2. If the cancellation is less than ten (10) days prior to delivery no refund of payment made will be refunded. You do have the option to book another date or have a store credit.

All breakages and losses are the responsibility of the hirer. A replacement cost is payable on return of the equipment. The most common are glassware and crockery. Prices for replacements are different for all items. Please contact our office for a quote.

9. Does the equipment need to be retuned clean?

Yes, equipment needs to be returned clean or cleaning charges apply. For larger items e.g. Red Carpet, Barbecues, Spits, Pie Warmers etc. Cleaning Bonds are payable on hire and then refunded if the items are returned clean. If items are not returned clean then the bond is lost.

Linen tablecloths and serviettes are cleaned commercially. They are not required to be cleaned before returning however do not place wet/soiled linen in plastic bags as this encourages mildew and you will be charged replacement cost for this. The cost of normal laundering is included in the hire cost.
