Washing Up Service
You may request a price with or without Washing up Service, some white items have a Mandatory cleaning charge. It is essential for us that all hire items reach customers in immaculate condition. Cutlery and silverware must be washed or rinsed after use even if washing service agreed in advance. Under no circumstances should scourers or abrasives be used on any hired equipment. Aluminium parts or hire items will become permanently damaged if washed in commercial or domestic dishwashers. Linen must only be washed by a commercial laundry, pressed and bagged prior to return. Customers who do not take advantage of the Washing up Service must return items in exactly the state of cleanliness in which they were received, i.e. they must be in a condition that allows us to hire them again immediately by 11.00am the day following the event. Customers who opt to do their own washing up may lose a percentage of their deposit if returned items are found to require additional cleaning by us.

Without commercial washers or professional washing aids is very difficult for customers to return linens and some other items in the exact clean state we require for re-hire.

If a hire item has been lost or stolen the onus is on the hire customer to replace the item or pay for at replacement cost within 24hrs of the loss having been discovered. Alternatively, the hire customer may continue to extend the hire whilst the hire customer concluded an insurance claim.
