A ‘group hire’ (group rental) is specified by signing a group hire contract. Group hires consist of more than one outfit for more than one person. The hire contract is signed by the hirer of the group. The hirer is therefore responsible for the group as a whole. Including all products hired or purchased by any member of the group hire party. All of our usual terms and conditions apply for the group as a whole. (see below).
To be eligible for the ‘group hire’ discounts advertised a ‘group hire’ contract must be signed by one individual (the hirer) and the total price including any discount will be stated on the ‘group hire’ contract. The total price, including discount, is for the ‘group hire’ only and cannot be calculated or divided for individuals.
The amount stated is the total hire charge for the stated goods hired. This hire charge is for one day only. However the hirer is permitted two working days* for collection and a following two working days* to return these items. Excluding Bank Holiday weekends.** – Working days to be defined by days which Miguel’s are open for trading.
The hirer is responsible for all goods and should return them promptly in an undamaged condition. Whilst the goods are in the hirer’s possession the hirer is responsible for the full retail value of hired items (including suit cover and hangar) whether lost stolen or damaged.
We reserve the right to refuse the hire of any goods to any individual. We also reserve the right to cancel/change any existing order, without prior notice.
All fittings should be complete by the date stated on the front of your ‘Hire Contract’ if for any reason fittings have not been completed by this date we reserve the right to cancel or amend the hire items required. Re-fittings (or second fittings) should be completed no later than 4 weeks prior to the wearing date on an appointment only basis. Re-fits and second fittings are not compulsory or always necessary, they are at the hirer’s discretion.
We must be informed prior to wearing time of any damaged goods.
A service charge of $50.00 (per outfit) will be charged on cancellation of any goods hired. If however a cancellation occurs within 48 hours of the wearing date all monies paid will be forfeit (excluding security deposit if paid) for loss of pre-booking earnings.
Any changes to the goods originally ordered are subject to availability. Any changes to the goods originally ordered, within four weeks of the wearing date are subject to a surcharge for administration costs incurred. Surcharge is directly related to the goods hired. Minimum surcharge: $35.00 – Maximum surcharge: full hire cost of original order.
