CHAIR COVER AND SASH HIRE
All chairs should be positioned and ready for the covers.
In the event that the chairs are not ready and if circumstances allow, (eg: we are not subject to time constraints due to other bookings) we will do everything in our power to complete the job in the allocated time, however, if the time allocated is exceeded by non availability of the chairs, or for any other reason outside our control, then a charge of £20 per hour or part thereof per person attending, will be charged to the customer
We will not unstack chairs or set out chairs or remove chair covers that have been supplied by another company and still on the chairs.
Once setup, the chair covers must not be removed or the chairs stacked.
Where an arrangement has been made to place items such as, but not limited to, flowers, etc., in the sashes or other locations on the chair, we will only be under an obligation to provide this service if the items are available from 7.30am at the venue. If the agreed items are not available before we finish the order, we will have fulfilled our obligation in full
Once an order is confirmed, we will, at our own expense, visit the venue before the function to ensure that the seat covers are suitable for the chairs which the venue uses. If our covers are not suitable, we will refund any deposit paid and the order will be cancelled.
Once we confirm that our covers are suitable for the chairs, it becomes the responsibility of the customer to ensure that the venue does not change the design of the chair prior to the function or use two or more different types of chair.
In the event that the venue does change the chairs prior to the function and the covers are then unsuitable, we will not be held responsible, however, if this means that we cannot complete the booking, then the booking will be deemed to have been cancelled and number 34 of these Terms and Conditions of Trading will determine the outstanding balance payable.
Final numbers of covers and sashes are required to be confirmed no later than 14 days prior to the function. Slight adjustments can still be made after this time at the discretion of Amilo Weddings and Events.
In the event of there being extra chairs at the venue at the time of setup, we will, if possible, include these as part of the booking and invoice the customer for the extra charges as necessary, however, only the confirmed amount will be guaranteed.
In the event of there being less chairs than confirmed, no refund will be made as we will have brought the correct amount of covers and sashes and allocated the required staff for the confirmed number.
All chair covers and sashes are laundered as necessary prior to hire, however, whilst every care is taken in the laundering of our hire stock, blemishes may be visible that the cleaning process may not totally remove and it is at our discretion as to whether the covers are in a useable condition prior to delivery
In the event that the chair covers and sashes are not available for collection, a charge of £2 per day will be charged for the covers and 50p for the sashes, until the items are either returned or made available for collection or deemed to be missing.
