All our equipment is checked straight after use so if any issues arise from the hire period - we will contact you within 12 hours to discuss and take the appropriate action depending on circumstances.

All initial hires will need to be paid online via Stripe (Credit Card) or via manual bank transfer into our bank account.


No refunds will be provided if notice of cancellation occurs within 5 days of delivery of equipment or service as we are reliant on bookings - However for notices more than 5 days from delivery, a full refund will be provided.

Please note we do not offer refunds for rain interruptions etc or cancellations but can offer alternate indoor solutions if available and this will then be charged at the initial hire rate. It will be up to our discretion if we can defer the booking to another date/time but this is on a case by case basis.


We want your event to be fantastic so will make every attempt to work within each unique situation. In the unlikely event equipment fails or there is a fault, we expect to be made aware of asap and can provide an alternative asap to minimise any disruptions but will not be offering any reduction in hire charge or refund unless we are informed on the spot and allowed to remedy or replace any equipment during your hire period.
