What happens if it rains?
In the event of rain or strong winds, all props must be moved indoors. We reserve the right not to set up our props if the weather looks like it will damage our props in any way. There will be no refund if this occurs. However, we will do everything possible to move the prop/s to a location sheltered from weather. Water or strong winds will damage our props beyond repair and the replacement cost for each damaged item will be payable. A list of replacement costs is available upon request.
There will be no refunds due to bad weather and being unable to use our props. Please take this into consideration when planning your event. Have a backup venue planned well in advance so that you can still use our beautiful giant flowers at your event.
Do you require a bond?
A 5% bond is required which will be refunded within 7 days of the props being returned. However, if items are returned unclean, broken or substantially damaged, the hirer will forfeit the bond to the owner. The hirer will be billed for any cost for loss or damage that occurs above the bond amount.
What happens if something is lost/damaged or unreturned?
In the rare circumstance that this may happen, full replacement cost will be payable. You will be notified by phone and email and the replacement cost must be paid within 7 days. The replacement cost will be provided with your hire agreement.
