If you have a preferred colour scheme or theme in mind that you would like to be predominately included in your hire, please include this when you contact us for your hire. Although this may not always be possible, we will always do our best to include pieces that may best match your colour scheme/theme.
You are also warmly invited to view our hire items and choose your pieces at least 7 days prior to hire.
There is no minimum hire, you are welcome to hire as much or as little as you need!
Hirers are responsible for any damages incurred whilst the items are in their possession. A bond of $100.00 is required for all orders under $100.00, and a bond of $200.00 is required for all orders over $100.00.
BOND / DAMAGES
Bond monies will be returned once items are received back and inspected to ensure there are no missing items, chips/cracks or breakages.
Breakages and losses will be charged at current replacement value per item and this will be deducted from the bond. We only charge for the item that has been damaged; for example, if a teacup is broken, we will only charge you for the replacement cost of the teacup, and not the trio/duo setting.
RETURN OF ITEMS
Hire includes the cost of Daintea taking care of the washing up for you, however, we do ask if you could kindly please wipe over/ remove food and/or drink stuffs from crockery, before packaging away.
You are most welcome to take care of the washing up yourself, although the crockery can only be hand washed in warm soapy water; dishwashers and harsh abrasives unfortunately can’t be used as they can damage the delicate 24ct gold gilding and transfer on the pieces. Glass tumblers, teaspoons and cake forks are fine to be washed in a dishwasher.
