Our terms and conditions

Our prices are based on individual items, as each and every object is unique and not reproduction. Organising a wedding or event can be financially draining, so we’ve ensured our prices are very competitive and you get the best value for your money as well as individual style and quality, leaving you to relax and enjoy the party.

All prices and quotes include VAT – so there are no nasty surprises!


Bath Vintage hire period is 4 days and additional days may be added at an additional cost. Please contact us to discuss this further. Additional items that are required after the final payment will be accommodated if possible. Payment for additional items must be made on delivery.

Delivery and collection

We’re based in the Somerset countryside, between Bristol and Bath. You are welcome to collect and return from us.

You are welcome to collect and return from us. We deliver up and down the country and offer free delivery within a 15 mile radius of our base if your order is over £400. If your event is further afield we charge 0.70ppm for delivery and collection.

***The service we provide is for hire only, we deliver and unload the hire items at a pre agreed time and place. Set up and layout is the hirer’s responsibility not Bath Vintage Hire. Similarly, on an agreed time for collection, all hire equipment must be cleaned and in one area ready to load. This means that tables need to be wiped and folded down, chairs also folded and in a pile. Failure to do this will result in a flat rate charge of £50, which will be taken from the damages deposit***

We are generally on a tight schedule and have multiple collections to do in a day, so if we have to find, clean and take down our items after your event this can have negative implications for the rest of our hirers. We hope you understand.

Deposit & Payment

A non-refundable deposit of 20% of the total hire charge is required to secure the booking with Bath Vintage Hire. The full balance and damage deposit is required 30 days before the event. We ask for a damage deposit of £100, which will be returned once everything has been checked and deemed to be in good condition. The deposit will be made back to the hirer via bank transfer within 3 days after the event.

Damages deposit

Any breakages or damage to props, tables, chairs etc will be deducted from the £100 damage deposit. In the unlikely event of any damages totalling more than £100 then we will endeavour to reach an amicable solution!

Please follow our guidelines for the terms of the hire:

  • Please don’t stand or dance on our tables or bars (we know how tempting it is!)
  • Please don’t stand on the chairs (many of our chairs are very old and can’t withstand extreme partying)
  • Please don’t leave anything outside overnight and/or in the rain (this can cause irreparable damage and if so will be charged at full loss rate as below)
  • Items lost will be charged at five times the hire cost


In the event of cancellation within 14 days of the hire date 100% of the total hire cost will be retained by Bath Vintage Hire. If you make the cancellation within 29 to 15 days of the hire date, then 50% of the total hire cost will be retained.

Bath Vintage Hire takes no responsibility in the event of any injury to any party through breakages of any equipment or any other accident during the hire period. We take no responsibility for any claims that arise from any event concerning or involving items hired from Bath Vintage Hire.

On booking, the hirer agrees to our Terms and Condition
