Terms and Conditions

Vintage China
All our china is of the highest vintage quality but due to the age of some of our china there maybe loss of gilt or crazing to the glaze, this does not effect the quality or usage of the china.

We will deliver to you for free if your event is within 5 miles of Weybridge with a minimum spend of £50. for deliveries over 5 miles we will charge a 45p per mile charge.  China Hire clients are welcome to collect items hired at an agreed time suitable for all parties.

Cleaning And Packing
Due to the age and delicacy of the china, all items need to be hand washed. To reduce the risk of breakages we ask that you just dry wipe away any food and drink on the china and replace it back into the wrap and box.
We may charge a small percentage fee for washing up and this will be included in your quote.
Note: Damage or loss of any packing boxes shall be charged at full replacement cost of the supplier.
