Frequently Asked Questions

Q Where do you hire to?

We are based in Sheffield and will happily hire to the rest of South Yorkshire and North Derbyshire. If you're further afield then please contact us to discuss.


Q How much is the hire charge?

We charge per item so you only pay for the items you need, with a minimum order charge of £25 (excluding delivery charges).

The only other cost is the delivery which is charged at 60 pence per mile travelled (based on your distance from our premises in Sheffield) with a minimum delivery charge of £15.

So, if you are 10 miles away from our base, we will need to make the journey 4 times, that's a total of 40 miles. 40 miles at 60p a mile works out at £24.


Q When do I pay?

You will be invoiced for the full amount on booking and full payment is required on or before delivery.

You can pay by cash, cheque, bank transfer, or using credit or debit card (for which a 5% surcharge will apply).


Q What if I break something (or it's lost or damaged)?

Any items damaged or lost will be invoiced post-event as per the following breakage charges...
