FAQs

 

What is the hire period?

The hire period is usually 4 days but if you require longer then this could be arranged as long as they are not booked for another event we are very flexible.

 

Do you have a minimum spend?

If you are happy to collect and return the desired items yourself then there is no minimum spend. If you would like us to deliver it would be minimum of £50 but an additional 50p per mile after the first 25 miles. This accounts for the return journey over, what will likely be, 2-3 days.

 

What is involved with on-the-day styling?

Set up and installation/ take down over two days at your choice. Liaising with suppliers may be required so contact names and numbers will be required 3 weeks before your event.
