A Special Event Ltd is the company hiring the items concerned. The ‘hirer’ or ‘customer’ is the person or company who has signed the booking form and is hiring the items or services provided by A Special Event Ltd.
The customer’s acceptance of goods on hire implies acceptance by signing and agreeing to our Conditions of Hire as given below.
Retention of Title

All hire items require a signed booking form agreeing to our terms and conditions and a 25% booking fee is payable to secure your booking.
Your final balance is due 30 days before your event date. If you are booking less than 30 days then full payment is required upon booking to secure your items. If payment is not received before this time, we will assume our services are no longer required and will automatically cancel the order.
Amendments to your booking
You can make changes 30 days prior to your event providing we have other items available.
Any significant changes may result in additional costs due depending on the change.
Once the invoice has been paid we cannot issue refunds on any items that are no longer required but can exchange items for the same value subject to availability.
Additional items can be added at anytime providing we have availability and enough time to provide the item, for example dressing a candy cart. This is at the full discretion of A Special Event Ltd.
Changes to your venue location may incur additional delivery charges.
Changes to your date are subject to availability and if made after 30 days, we cannot issue refunds on any items but we will try to exchange items at the same cost subject to availability.
