Terms & Conditions

TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF USE OF OUR WEBSITE

These are our terms and conditions. They apply each time you visit our site and every time you order a garment from us. We will assume that you’ve read them before you use the site or the services we offer. They do change from time to time so please re-read them each time you visit us.

 

AGREEMENT  

These Terms and Conditions comprise the following sections:

  • Rental Terms
  • General Terms
  • Privacy Policy

which together form the basis of the agreement between us and both you and we agree to be bound by what each section says.

 

RENTAL TERMS

  • AVAILABILITY

Acknowledgement of your order does not mean that we have accepted it. We will confirm to you when we have accepted your order and that is when a binding obligation will exist between us.

If we do not accept your order or if we have a problem relating to it, we will tell you as soon as we can and (if appropriate) refund any payment you have made to us.

An order can be placed at the times advertised on the Site. Any orders placed outside those times will be processed in the next opening period.

 

  • PAYMENT

We accept payment by credit, debit cards  & Paypal– your card will be charged when you make the order and you agree that we may retain those details and to apply any further charges we are allowed to apply by virtue of these terms and conditions.

 

We do not keep any information about your bank or credit cards after the hiring has been completed or we have returned the money you have paid us.

 

  • DELIVERY & COLLECTION

Our aim is to deliver your Garment before the date specified in your order but we are unable to guarantee that any specific time we quote will be met exactly. 

On delivery, we may ask for proof of your age and, if you are unable to supply this when requested, we may cancel your order without having the obligation to refund to you any part of the monies you have paid to us.

 

THE GARMENT

You acknowledge that:

  • the images on the Site are of the actual Garment fitted to a model or mannequin and that the Garment may not fit you in the same way;
  • the images which you see on your screen will differ from those we upload in terms of colour and definition and that we do not guarantee that the colours you see will match the actual garment;
  • the sizing we show on the Site reflects the sizing we have been given by the manufacturer of the Garment;
  • you will examine and try on the Garment immediately following its delivery and tell us without delay if it is suffering from any damage, does not fit or is in any way short of the description we have supplied on the Site;
  • we will make charges for repairs or cleaning, as specified below, unless you tell us before you use the Garment of any issues present when it was delivered;
  • the value of the Garment is that we have advised on the Site;
  • you must follow all and any instructions we provide with the Garment both for its use and packing;
  • that you will use the Garment in a proper manner and treat it with the same respect you would apply if you had borrowed it from a close friend

 

You agree that you will:

  • not alter or add to the Garment in any way
  • not clean or attempt to clean the Garment in any way

 

The Garment must be returned to us using the same packaging (including dress, dress bag, box and coat hanger) in which it was delivered to you and packed in a manner which does not damage the Garment nor cause undue creasing.

 

HIRING PERIOD

The period for which you and we have agreed that you can hire the Garment is that specified in our acceptance of your order. If the Garment has not been returned to us within 24 hours of the end of the agreed hire period, we have the right to charge penalties to cover the losses we sustain.

For this purposes of this clause, time is of the essence.

 

  • PENALTIES

The optional insurance we offer can be added to your order at checkout.  It covers any minor stains that will come out during dry cleaning, or minor damage such as a zip break.    It does not cover significant damage, stains that cannot be removed or theft and if the dress is damaged beyond repair, the fee will be the retail price of the item.

 

If you do not return the item to us within 24 hours of the end of the hire period;

  • We will charge you £25.00 per garment for each day (or part of a day) that you are late, as compensation for our loss of profit on that item.
  • in the same condition in which it was supplied to you and using the return service we specify, we may charge you the actual costs of repair and/or cleaning up to the replacement cost of the garment, to which we may add an amount equal to the loss of profit we suffer and any other costs we sustain whilst we wait for the garment to be replaced (subject to a maximum sum representing 150% of the retail price of the garment. You agree that the figure certified by our accountant as representing such costs and loss is conclusive evidence of the amount of that loss.

 

If the garment is not returned to us within 5 days, we may charge you up to 150% of the retail price of that garment as liquidated damages and to compensate us for the losses we have sustained.

 

For this purposes of this clause, time is of the essence.

 

  • SUBSTITUTE PRODUCTS

In the event that a Garment becomes unavailable for hire, we will send you what we consider to be the closest alternative we have to that Garment at the same fee as we have charged for the original Garment and that will satisfy our contractual obligations but, if the replacement Garment is not satisfactory, you may return it, unworn and we will refund all the monies you have paid us.

 

  • CANCELLATION/RETURNS

You agree that, for the purposes of the Regulations, we may confirm the terms of the agreement between us and the goods we are selling by email.  

 

You understand and agree that most of the products we supply are supplied for immediate use and that, as a result, your right to cancel the agreement between us is limited.

 

Cancellations

You may cancel your order up to 7 days before the start of the hire period and we will issue you with a full refund.

 

You may cancel your order even after we have delivered it but before you have used it and we will issue you with a credit note, valid for 1 year to the value of the hiring charge of the most expensive garment on your order, less a cancellation fee of £8.99.

 

The periods mentioned above apply from the date that you tell us you wish to cancel and you must tell us using the following email address:

hello@hirethatlook.com

 

These cancellation rights are in addition to the statutory rights you have.

 

Returns:
