Terms & Conditions

Hire

Bath Vintage hire period is 4 days. 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 will need to be made on delivery.

Delivery & Collection

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 £100. If your event is further afield then please contact us for a quote.

***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 BVH. Similarly upon 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 BVH. The full balance and damage deposit is required 30 days before the event. BVH 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 do not stand or dance on our tables or bars (we know how tempting it is!).
  • Please do not stand on the chairs (many of our chairs are very old and cannot withstand extreme partying).
  • Please do not 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.

Indemnity

In the event of cancellation within 14 days of the hire date 100% of the total hire cost will be retained by BVH. If the cancellation is made 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 is agreeing to our Terms and Conditions.
