Q: Do you set up the chairs and tables?
A: Set up of chairs and tables is available for an additional fee if you require it. Please make mention of this to your event consultant so we can allow for this in your quotation. Otherwise, our delivery staff will be happy to drop them as close as possible as to where you need them to be set up
Q: Do I have to return my glasses / cutlery / crockery washed? Don’t you wash it anyway?
A: Yes, all equipment must be returned to us clean of food etc. Of course we wash everything anyway so it is sparkling again for the next customer, but for hygiene purposes we can’t have dirty crockery sitting around! If you return your items dirty, a charge will be taken from your bond / credit card. Refer to your terms and conditions for further details. The only case that this does not apply is to linen. All of our linen should be returned dry, but dirty. All linen is professionally laundered off site.
Q: If I break something, do I have to pay for it?
A: When you return your order to us, we will check and count everything carefully. If something is missing or broken we will need to charge you a replacement fee. This depends on the items. The replacement charge for a broken glasses (always a sign of a good party!) ranges from $3.70 to $7.35 depending on the type of glass. If you require further information on other products, please ask one of our Event Consultants.
Q: Do you deliver? Is there a fee?
A: Yes we deliver to the Sydney metropolitan area. The charges are dependent on the suburb – please ask your event consultant for a price based on your location. If there are any specifics regarding the delivery site, please let us know so we can ensure the delivery is a smooth process for you. For example – loading docks, difficult driveways that a large truck will not be able to drive up.
Q: What time will my goods be delivered? Do I have to be at home?
A: If you have specific timings for your delivery, please speak to your event consultants. You don’t have to be at home if you can provide us with somewhere safe to leave the products.

A: We generally try to make all of our deliveries Monday – Friday. Should you require a weekend delivery or collection, it can be arranged with a surcharge. Please ask for a specific quotation.

A: This is always a tricky question. We experience a high demand for all products in Spring – Christmas / New Year. It is first in, best dressed so the earlier the better over this period.
