damages, how does that work?
For our furniture and decor items, we first try to fix and clean ourselves.
If the item is beyond repair and/or needs to be removed from inventory, we will assess the value at three to five times the rental rate or the actual replacement cost.
If the item is fixable, the client will be liable for the repair cost and/or professional cleaning fees.
Can I change my order after the agreement is signed? Cancelations & refunds, how does that work?
Yes, you have up until 30 days out from an event to make any changes you need, so as long as the invoice does not decrease more than 20% from the original invoice.
After that point, we allow swaps for items of equal or greater value or rental additions. Additional deposit amount may apply if adding items to the order that are of greater value.
CANCELATIONS & REFUNDS:
All cancellations must be made in writing (which includes email communication as long as receipt is acknowledged by Company), or via telephone (must be person-to-person communication; voice messages are not sufficient).
The Retainer and Booking Fee identified in our Rental Agreement shall be non-refundable regardless of when the notice of cancellation is given.
For cancellations made less than sixty (60) days prior to the Event Date, Renter is responsible for additional payment equal to fifty percent (50%) of the remaining balance of the Rental Fee, due to Company within five (5) business days of the notice to Company of cancellation.
For cancellations made less than fourteen (14) days prior to the Event Date, Renter is responsible for payment of the full balance of the Rental Fee, due to Company within five (5) business days of the notice to Company of cancellation.
Per our Rental Agreement.
When are my items considered booked?
When an order is placed, we send a Proposal out.
Items are then placed on a soft hold. The proposal expires two weeks from the date it is sent.
Once a client has accepted a proposal and wishes to proceed. Our team will compose an Invoice & Agreement, that is then sent to the client.
-Your order is considered Booked when; the Agreement is signed and an initial payment toward the non-refundable Retainer of 50% of the total cost is paid. It will be broken down into payments, the first payment is 35% of total invoice to book and the remaining balance of retainer will be added to the other scheduled payments, *as described below.
-Remaining balance *(including remaining of retainer) of invoice is divided into Two (2) Payments, spread out evenly over time leading up to your event date, with the final payment due 30 days prior to your event date.
There will be a total of three payments.
*If the remaining balance needs to be split into three payments rather than two, we can do that per your request.
-If your event is within 30 days or less of your Inquiry, the total Invoice cost is due upon receipt.
We accept all major credit cards and bank transfers via Stripe, we do not keep credit cards and/or client bank info. on file.
