These terms tell you who we are, who we will provide products to you, how you and we may change or end the contract, what to do if there is a problem and other important information. If you think that there is a mistake in these terms, please contact us to discuss.
We are Hirestreet Limited, a company registered in England and Wales under company number 11070982 and have our registered office at i6 6-8 Charlotte Square, Newcastle upon Tyne, Tyne and Wear, NE1 4XF.
To contact us, please email [email protected]
If we have to contact you we will do so by telephone or by writing to you at the email address or postal address you provided to us in your order.
ACCEPTANCE OF CONTRACT
By placing an order on hirestreetuk.com, you (the user) are agreeing to the terms and conditions contained herein. The user is liable for all fines payable under terms of this contract.
Our acceptance of your order will take place when we email you to accept it, at which point a contract will come into existence between you and us. We will assign an order number to your order and tell you what it is when we accept your order. It will help us if you can tell us the order number whenever you contact us about your order.
If we cannot accept your order, we will inform you of this and will not charge you for the product. This might be because the product is out of stock, because of unexpected limits on our resources which we could not reasonably plan for, because we have identified an error in the price or description of the product or because we are unable to meet a delivery deadline you have specified.
We only rent to the UK. Our website is solely for the promotion of our products in the UK. Unfortunately, we do not accept orders from or deliver to addresses outside the UK.
Products may vary slightly from their pictures. The images of the products on our website are for illustrative purposes only. Although we have made every effort to display the colours accurately, we cannot guarantee that a device’s display of the colours accurately reflects the colour of the products. Your product may vary slightly from those images.
DELIVERY OF PRODUCTS
The costs of delivery will be displayed to you on our website. Please note, you will be charged a delivery fee for every unique delivery date. If you have multiple items being delivered on the same date you will only be charged this fee once. We use Royal Mail to deliver our orders. Any delivery time or date given by HIRESTREET to the User is an estimate only. If the item is delivered late the user must accept delivery unless a non-delivery agreement is reached in advance between HIRESTREET and the user.
We are not responsible for delivery delays outside our control. If our supply of the products is delayed by an event outside our control then we will contact you as soon as possible to let you know and we will take steps to minimise the effect of delay. Provided we do this we will not be liable for delays caused by the event, but if there is a risk of substantial delay you may contact us to end the contract and receive a refund for any products you have paid for but not received.
If after a failed delivery to you, you do not re-arrange delivery or collect them from a delivery depot we will contact you for further instructions and may charge you for storage costs and any further delivery costs. If, despite our reasonable efforts we are unable to contact you or re-arrange delivery or collection we may end the contract.
RENTAL PERIOD AND LATE FEES
The rental period shall commence from when the User (or a third party nominated by the User) receives their item(s) and shall continue until the Hirestreet Items are dropped off at a Royal Mail Post Office.
Where apparel has not been dropped off to a Royal Mail post office by the designated Rental Return Date then HIRESTREET are entitled to charge additional hire fees to the users credit/debit card which was provided at the time of the original rental.
If the User pays Hirestreet an amount equal to 200% of the recommended retail value (as stated on the product page) in late fees and the user still has the item in their possession then the item(s) is the users to keep.
Late fees are charged according to the following structure:
- 50% of the rental value every day up to 14 days, or when the dress is returned to Royal Mail (whichever comes sooner.)
- After 14 days we will charge the customer 200% of the recommended retail value (as stated on the product page.)
The leased item is and will at all times remain the absolute property of Hirestreet Limited.
The User accepts full responsibility for the safekeeping of the apparel once the item has been signed for.
If the User has not returned the rental items 14 days after the return date, we will assume the item is not going to be returned and will charge the users credit/debit card 200% of the recommended retail price of the item(s).
DAMAGES & THEFT
If the Apparel gets lost or damaged beyond repair:
- the User is solely responsible for the apparel they have rented and is therefore liable for any damage or loss that occurs during the rental period.
- Regardless of whether the User is personally responsible for the damage they remain liable for the replacement of this item because in signing for their delivery they agreed to take responsibility for the apparel.
- In assessing the replaceable value, HIRESTREET will take into account: the demand for the dress, our ability to purchase a replacement, the condition of the dress, and the rental fee that the User has already paid.
If you have taken out insurance on your item then you are covered for all repairable damages. Examples include, ripped seams, zip breaks and removable stains that require extra attention. Insurance does not cover damages where the dress must be replaced or written off entirely. In these instances customers are liable to pay the replacement dress costs. Damage assessment is at the discretion of the expert Hirestreet Warehouse Team. In the rare case that the item needs to be replaced, customers are sent the damaged dress to keep once the replacement costs have been paid.
User cancellation: If the User cancels an order up to 3 weeks in advance of their chosen delivery date they are entitled to receive a full refund. Orders cancelled with less than 3 weeks notice are still liable to pay the rental fee, however the delivery fee will be refunded and the User will receive rental credit. If a User cancels their order within 6 hours of placing that order, then they are also eligible to receive a full refund, unless the order has already been despatched. To cancel an order, the User must give written notice to: [email protected].
HIRESTREET cancellation: In certain circumstances we may need to cancel an order before it has been dispatched to the user. Said circumstances can include: if the apparel ordered has not been returned/or has been returned damaged by a previous customer, or if the User in question has given us cause to be concerned about their suitability to receive future rentals (e.g. frequent late returns, theft or damaged items.)
IF THERE IS A PROBLEM WITH THE PRODUCT
If you have any questions or complaints about the product, please contact us. You can write to use at [email protected].
If you wish to exercise your legal rights to reject products you must post them back to us. We offer an exchange service for all of our rentals. To exchange a product you must ensure that the apparel is dropped off in the pre-paid packaging with the returns label attached at a Royal Mail post office within 48 hours of receipt.
Once you have selected the outfit you would like to exchange your original item for (please ensure it is available for your event date) – please email [email protected] and we will ensure your exchange is posted to you at the earliest opportunity. Please note, that we will charge/refund you the difference in costs for two exchanged items and that a delivery fee will apply to your exchanged item.
PRICE AND PAYMENT
The price of the rental will be the price indicated on the order pages when you placed your order. We take reasonable care to ensure that the price of the product advised to you is correct.
It is always possible that, despite our reasonable efforts, some of the products we rent may incorrectly priced. We will normally check prices before accepting your order so that, where the product’s correct price at your order date is less than our stated price at your order date, we will charge the lower amount. If the product’s correct price at your order date is higher than the price stated to you, we will contact you for your instructions before we accept your order.
We use Stripe to process our payments and therefore accept almost all major credit and debit cards. You must pay for the products at the point of reservation.
