The Tipsy Tea Party - Celebration cakes for all occasions & Vintage China Hire
Vintage China Hire
Terms & Conditions of Hire

Our standard hire period is three days. 
China will be collected/delivered on the day before the event and collected/returned the following day. 
Additional charges will apply for late returns.

If you require a set up service, this can be arranged on the day for an additional charge.

You are welcome to collect and return items from Balcombe, West Sussex by arrangement.

We are also willing to deliver within a 40 mile radius, charged at 50p per mile. i.e. 50 miles total distance, including return journey = £25.00

Charges are based on delivery to a ground floor location and on condition that for collection the china has been re-packed safely in the packaging and boxes provided. If you want repacking done by us this will incur an additional charge.

Please carefully check items upon receipt and sign the accompanying delivery note. Notify us within 24 hours of any damage/breakages/discrepancies. Deliveries must received in person.

Unless otherwise stated all of our china is chip and crack free, although this is “vintage” china and there may be some evidence of wear. Due to the nature of vintage china, please remember that it will damage more easily than commercial crockery – please take extra care when handling!

All hire items will be an assorted mix of designs, patterns and colours, however each trio supplied will be matching - you can mix and match if required!  Happy for you to look at our gallery/inventory to pick designs you specifically want.

All our hire prices include washing up  as this is where most breakages occur, so this saves you time & worry!  Before re-packing, please ensure that any food has been scraped off plates (use a plastic or rubber spatula rather than a knife) and all liquids are emptied out.

China supplied remain the property of "The Tipsy Tea Party" at all times.

You are responsible for the china from the time it is collected/delivered until it is collected/returned to us.

No responsibility can be accepted by "The Tipsy Tea Party" for any injury or damage caused by the hire items, however caused.

Goods are dispatched clean and in satisfactory vintage condition.

By placing an order with "The Tipsy Tea Party" you are agreeing to the Terms and Conditions above.
