- We may, in our discretion, refuse to accept an order from you if stock for that Product is unavailable.
- We will use our best endeavours to deliver the Product to you by the Commencement Date, but we cannot guarantee any delivery times due to factors outside of our control. As such, we recommend that you place your order at least 7 days (and up to 12 months) before the Commencement Date. Please note we do not deliver on weekends or public holidays.
- In the unlikely event that your Product does not arrive by the Commencement Date, please email us immediately at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Your Obligations during the Hire Period
- All risk in the Product shall pass to you upon delivery and shall remain with you for the full duration of the Hire Period. It is your responsibility to take care when opening the Product or packaging so as not to damage it.
- From the time when risk passes to you and during the Hire Period, you will be liable for loss or damage to the Product. However, we understand that minor accidents can occur, so we will cover up to $50 worth of accidental damage to the Product.
- If the Product is unable to be repaired, you agree to reimburse us for the full retail value of the Product.
- The Products are hired to you personally and subject to your acceptance of these terms and conditions, therefore they may not be used or worn by any other person, and we will not be liable for any loss or damage to the Product caused by another person. You agree to reimburse us for the full cost of any loss or damage to the Product caused by another person.
- Due to the delicate nature of the Products, please do not attempt to clean or tamper with the Products at any time. Products are professionally dry-cleaned and/or sanitised by us upon return.
- A pre-paid postal satchel will be provided to you with the Product. You must not dispose of this satchel, and you are responsible for maintaining possession of the satchel until the Product is returned to us.

- If you have not returned the Product to us within 15 days of the Return Date, we will deem the Product as lost or stolen. All lost or stolen Products will be charged at 200% of the retail value of the Product, less any late fees already paid by you.
- If you believe that your Product will be returned late or has been lost or stolen, please notify us immediately as we may have customers who were waiting on hiring the Products.

- If you have received a Product with a fault, damage or defect, please contact us immediately and provide evidence of the fault, damage or defect and let us know whether you would like a repair, exchange or refund.
- Please note that whilst we will use our best endeavours to repair or exchange the Product in accordance with your request, we may be restricted from doing so in the following circumstances:
- In the case of exchanges, if the Product is no longer stocked or available, in which case we may offer you a similar alternate Product;
- In the case of repairs, if the Product cannot be repaired due to its delicate nature.
- Any faulty or damaged Products must be returned to us prior to us processing your repair, exchange or refund by returning it in the pre-paid post satchel provided.
- In the case of refunds, please allow up to 10 days for the refund or exchange to be processed.
- If you have hired a Product but have changed your mind or wish to cancel the order, please let us know at least 30 days prior to the Commencement Date and we will provide a full refund. As our Products are in high-demand and often reserved months in advance, we cannot provide refunds for any cancellations made less than 30 days prior to the Commencement Date.
