We reserve the right to charge a fee if any of these items have permanent damage due to wax.
16. CUTLERY: We understand that you would want to possibly re wash our cutlery before use,
due to COVID-19. We do wash it before it leaves so it is clean, but you are welcome to rewash
should you wish. Please do take good care of them should you wash and only use warm water,
sunlight liquid and a soft cloth. No hard brushes and no dish washer. Please note that boiling
them (koshering) the cutlery and items is not allowed and damages will be charged for.
The client will be held liable for any damages at the full and total cost of the item.
This is not the hiring cost, this is the purchase price of the item.
17. UNDERPLATES: No abrasive materials to be used on underplates. They are not dishwasher
friendly. Please ensure that you do not pack more than 22 underplates per crate. To protect the
rim, the underplates must be repackaged with the bubble wrap exactly how they arrived.
18. PACKAGING: All items and packaging (ie: crates and bubble wrap) must be packed in the
same way it was received. Please do not force items into their crates, there will always be enough
crates for the items you have hired. Breakages will be charged for. A packaging instruction sheet
will be added to your order.

event. Should all items be returned in an acceptable manner and accounted for, the deposit will

than once a week and our turn around times are important. Your return date will be stated on
your invoice (unless alternative arrangements have been made)
