Vintage Crockery Hire Terms & Conditions

We want your event to be a success, and we’re sure that with our vintage crockery hire it will be! There are however some terms and conditions which are part of the hire of items from us - if you have any queries on the terms please contact us, and we will talk through them as part of your initial consultation with us. 

Please note that these terms apply to crockery hire only.

Hire Period

Our standard hire period is 3 days, which can be extended subject to prior agreement. 

Delivery/Collection

Vintage Fleur is based in Desborough, Northamptonshire. You may collect/return your order from us without any charge, by prior arrangement. We can also deliver and collect from you within c.40 miles of the above for a charge. Your order can also be sent to you by Royal Mail/Courier and we will endeavour to keep any costs to a minimum, including insurance if required.

The customer is responsible for checking the inventory of any collected/delivered order and notifying Vintage Fleur within 24 hours of any damage or shortages. If notification is not received we shall deem that the order has been successfully delivered.

Vintage Crockery - condition

Our vintage crockery is by its very nature used, and well-loved with some limited “wear-and-tear”. All items are though able to be used according to their original purpose. Our classification of items and sizes are generic, and specific sizes of items cannot be guaranteed. Our crockery is “mix and match” and is intended to be used with an eclectic mix of styles for the best effect. 

Cleaning

All items are provided clean and ready to use. Customers must return items in the same condition, and fully cleaned or will be subject to a  cleaning charge of 10% of total hire charge, with a minimum £15 charge (this can also be agreed and paid for at time of hire if desired). Please wash all items by hand and dry with care - they are not suitable for use in a dish washer.

Packaging

All items will be packaged carefully and must be returned repacked with care and placed back into their original boxes. Crockery is fragile so please wrap the items carefully. 

Charges (including for Damage)

Your order for crockery hire will be confirmed following a 50% pre-payment of the total value of your order. This is non-refundable in case of cancellation. The balance will be payable two weeks (14 days) before your delivery date. Additionally we will ask at this point for a second separate cheque in case of damage or loss (typically £50-100 damage cheque, dependent on your order) - this will be held and only cashed in case of damage, where the cost of replacement items will be deducted from this sum. 

Damage will be charged against this sum at double (x2) the agreed hire of the item damaged - i.e. if a cup is hired for £1.00 and is lost/damaged, an additional damage charge of £2.00 will be deducted from the damage cheque. Any unused amount from the damage cheque will be returned to you by cheque after the damaged item charges have been deducted.

Liability
Vintage Fleur will accept no responsibility for damage or injury caused to person or product as a result of this hire arrangement, unless negligence on the part of Vintage Fleur. All goods are hired and are the responsibility of the hirer until they are returned to Vintage Fleur.
Insurance
For your peace of mind we strongly recommend that a suitable insurance be taken out by yourself as all equipment is the responsibility of the hirer until return or collection, including equipment left at other premises.  Any losses, damage or breakages will be charged according to the above terms.
