How much is the Bond?
A refundable bond of $50 is payable for each party hire and will be refunded in full if the items are returned clean and undamaged. The value of the bond is dependent on the value of the items hired and will be shown on the invoice. Bond Refund will be via bank transfer or reversal of a credit card payment. In the event, the hire items are returned late, dirty, damaged or lost funds will be deducted from the bond. If the damage is more than the bond charged, the customer is responsible for this excess amount. A minimum fee of $25 is charged for cleaning items that have been returned in an unclean condition.

If I change my mind what about returns/refunds/exchanges?
Of course, the last thing we want is for you to be stuck with a product you don’t want, but we also ask you to choose carefully.

We are happy to offer a refund, return or exchange of your product as long as they are unused, unopened and resalable condition. Please contact us within two days of receiving your product in order to be eligible for a return, refund or exchange.

Unfortunately for health and safety reasons (don’t want to go spreading germs now) we can’t exchange/refund or accept the return of products such as balloons and straws.

Sorry I know it seems mean but for returns or exchanges the customer needs to cover the cost of returning the item and shipping costs will not be refunded.

What if we get a damaged or incorrect item?
Firstly we apologise for this.

If the product you receive is damaged, faulty, or incorrect we are happy to refund, replace or exchange at no extra cost to you.
